Same-Sex Parenting Research
Contemplate the time, energy, and effort required to read nearly 400 studies on same-sex parenting. Add to this investment scores of meticulous statistical examinations by a razor-sharp quantitative methodologist. Finally, throw in a propensity for academic heresy — or intellectual courage, for sometimes they are the same. The result is Same-Sex Parenting Research: A Critical Assessment.
