Lesbian Parents Do Not Molest Their Children, Like, Ever

A study of lesbian parents over 24 years reveals their children are virtually never the victims of sexual or physical abuse at home.

UCLA’s Williams Insistent quizzed 78 17-year-old children of lesbian parents as part of its National Longitudinal Lesbian Family Study. It found exactly zero of them reporting instances of abuse — a startling statistic when you compare it to the 26 percent of American teens reporting physical abuse, and 8.3 percent reporting sexual abuse. (Fun fact: 2.8 percent of the children responding self-identified as gay or lesbian.) This study arrives on the heals of another that revealed lesbians raise some of the nation’s most well-adjusted (read: non-drug using, not-in-prison, academically proficient) kids.

That’s right, everyone: Children are safer in the care of lesbians than Catholic priests.

      “This study arrives on the heals of…” “Heals”? Wow.

      How hard is it to find an English-proficient proofreader, really?

      @Jax:

      Prosecutors brought and dropped three charges of lewd behavior against Poundstone, which she always denied. Poundstone admitted she drove drunk with the kids in the car, which is bad, but a far cry from molesting them.

      Even assuming all charges against Poundstone were true, the fact remain that kids are statistically safest with lesbians.

      Don’t take my word for it. Go work with child sex-abuse victims. That’ll wipe the smug right off your face, jackwagon.

      2.8% of 78 children = 2.184 gays. I’m guessing they count questioning as fractional lol.

      @Jax: Didn’t Paula consider herself asexual anyways?
