Study: Children of same-sex parents are as happy and healthy as children of straight parents · PinkNews

A study has put an anti-gay myth to bed – by proving there is no difference between kids raised by same-sex couples and kids raised by straight couples.

The findings, published on Wednesday in the New England Journal of Medicine, show that children of lesbian couples conceived through sperm donation were no more likely to have physical or emotional problems than the children of straight couples.

Researchers compared a group of twenty-five year-olds who had all been raised by same-sex couples to a sample of typical US twenty-five year-olds matched on sex, class, gender and ethnic background.

They found that the cohort raised by same-sex couples were just as happy in their relationships with their friends and family as those raised by straight couples.
