Mona Charen: Are children of gay parents worse off?

She writes of studies of kids raised by gays, noting that the gay partners studied tended to be highly nonrepresentative.

Then came this:
As Biblarz and Stacey observe, the majority of children raised in gay families turn out to be heterosexual in adulthood (bearing in mind the limitations of the research)."
I would certainly hope so, considering that they're a *huge* majority the rest of the time. The intent of the statement seems to be to reassure, but in fact it leaves room to mask a strong preference for becoming gay compared to kids raised in traditional families.

There's still much more to be done. And in a saner society this research would be done before anything so revolutionary as "gay marriage" was introduced.
