Children Raised by Homosexual Parents More Likely to Identify as Gay: Study

Yet another reason why homosexual behaviour is a problem.  Those poor children will have their future compromised.  That’s not fair.

Children Raised by Homosexual Parents More Likely to Identify as Gay: Study

By Kathleen Gilbert

MANHATTAN, Kansas, October 25, 2010 ( – A study due out next month has found that children raised by homosexual parents are far more likely to identify as homosexual themselves.

Walter Schumm, a family studies professor at Kansas State University, told AOL News that he questioned the conviction – ironclad in both popular culture and the academic world – that parents could not influence their children’s sexual orientation, while being able to influence so many other aspects of their lives.

“I just want to know the truth about something,” he said.

In the abstract of the study, Schumm concluded that research conducted by pro-family leader Paul Cameron in 2006, although widely lambasted by media and professionals, accurately concluded that homosexuals are more likely to raise homosexual children.

The study, an analysis of previous research, attempted to skew the results in favor of popular opinion, but still found Cameron’s conclusion solid.

“Despite numerous attempts to bias the results in favour of the null hypothesis and allowing for up to 20 (of 63, 32%) coding errors, Cameron’s (2006) hypothesis that gay and lesbian parents would be more likely to have gay, lesbian, bisexual or unsure (of sexual orientation) sons and daughters was confirmed,” it states.

According to the abstract, between 16 and 57 percent of children with gay or lesbian parents were found to adopt homosexual identities. Daughters of lesbian couples were found to be particularly affected, with 33 to 57 percent identifying as lesbian.

  1. This has been pointed out before, by professor Gairdner, but very few heeded. Any population could be made homosexual under certain extreme conditions. For example, a group of young children with no prior sexual knowledge, raised by a homosexual would end up fancying homosexual behavior themselves. What has previously prevented this from happening on a large scale were, social sanctions against this behavior, so that such extreme situations cannot arise. There may be very small numbers of people predisposed to choose homosexual behavior with it’s mega health risks, in the same way an alcoholic may be predisposed to drink alcohol if it is available. Nothing except personal desire makes the whiskey bottle ( or the penis) jump into his mouth. All societies have people with predispositions and unhealthy appetites and behaviors, but we oughtn’t legalize and teach them as normal healthy alternatives to students.

  2. If that’s true why didn’t I “fancy” being a heterosexual? Both my parents were straight, married, devoted Christians who took me and my brother to church weekly. We prayed every meal and at night. I even watched Christian movies that had nothing but straight married couples. However even when I was very young I felt a stronger emotional connection to the same sex. I knew I was gay before even knowing what gay was. Christian religion is nothing but an excuse to promote hatred and bigotry.

  3. The study doesn’t say that the parent’s sexual orientation will always be reflected on their children 100% of the time.

    There’s no hatred or bigotry here, my friend. Disagreement with your lifestyle does not equate with hatred or bigotry. You need to see past those labels.

  4. My friend, the whole “bigotry” label is really getting tiresome. It’s so abused that it no longer means anything to social conservatives since we get slapped with it so many times by liberals. It’s as common as the sun rising in the morning. Yawn.

    Your condition is a disorder. That does not mean that YOU as a person do not have dignity. You do. Having such a disordered desire for other men – like ANY OTHER DISORDERED DESIRE – is something to wrestle against and not give into it. Self restraint, it seems, is really what liberals have a problem with.

  5. According to the Public Health Agency of Canada’s HIV and AIDS In Canada Surveillance Report for April 2006 page 60, we read that Eighty-five percent of AIDS in Canada is in Males who have sex with Males. Not healthy is it?
    Gay Bowel Syndrome describes a very well documented collection of bowel diseases that lead to the mechanical dysfunction of the lower bowel tract. These afflictions are endemic to the homosexual population. Not healthy or normal is it? Why is sodomy legal in Canada when it is so harmful? Why is the United Nations trying to legalize it across the globe when it is so exceedingly morbid?
    Two homosexual scientists Simon Le Vay and Dean Hammer pretend to have discovered a homosexual gene, but their experiment can not be repeated by other scientists so to prove and validate it. This is BS meaning Bad Science. This BS is put on the front pages of our newspapers, magazines and taught to children in schools and the public believes this BS.
    Why are our universities, courts, news media and government imposing this on everyone as healthy and normal, even in spite of the overwhelming scientific proof of the health risks of this behavior?
    Through reasoned debate, using verifiable evidence, we must defeat harmful ideas and bad legislation while we show love and respect to the people promoting them.
