Are straight parents better than gay parents?


Quote:
And that science has found there are virtually no differences between the social competence and adjustment of children raised in gay and straight homes.

In fact, the only differences that do exist seem to favour children of lesbian parents.

Hastings details the differences that may aid children's adjustment. First, it appears that gay parents tend to be more supportive of each other's child-care activities than straight parents, and this might provide a slightly more supportive environment for children's development of self-worth. Second, gay parents seem to be marginally more effective at socializing their children than heterosexual parents.
