    Of course, it won’t be covered by the Mail or Telegraph. The Christian Institute will dismiss it and so too will the Anglican and Roman cults.

  2. Well, yes. It’s obvious but sadly bigots need to be spoonfed this information. They’ll still ignore it though.

    No sh!t Sherlock.

    Who would have thunk?

  4. For those interested, the exact link to the AAP site:

    http://www.aap.org/en-us/about-the-aap/aap-press-room/Pages/American-Academy-of-Pediatrics-Supports-Same-Gender-Civil-Marriage.aspx

    (notice the two links, inside the text, towards the “policy statement” and the “technical report”).

  5. Similar studies carried out in the UK have come to identical conclusions, mist notably that by Susan Golombok of Cambridge Unuversity on behalf of (I think) the National Association for Fostering and Adoption. Those with a particular interest in the subject could do worse than read the excellent “Lesbian, Gay and Queer Parenting” by Stephen Hicks. Leaving all of that to one side my own response as a gay man with children is: of course, why would it be any other way? We should be proud that we achieve so much with, until recently, so little societal support and in the face of ignorance and hostility.
