Here’s some video of Dr. Kyle Pruett insisting that homophobe schmuck bag and Focus on the Family leader James Dobson misused his research for his erroneous Time Magazine article in which admonished Mary Cheney for having a baby with her lesbian love, Heather Poe.
With all due respect to Cheney and her partner, Heather Poe, the majority of more than 30 years of social-science evidence indicates that children do best on every measure of well-being when raised by their married mother and father. That is not to say Cheney and Poe will not love their child. But love alone is not enough to guarantee healthy growth and development. The two most loving women in the world cannot provide a daddy for a little boy–any more than the two most loving men can be complete role models for a little girl… The unique value of fathers has been explained by Dr. Kyle Pruett of Yale Medical School in his book Fatherneed: Why Father Care Is as Essential as Mother Care for Your Child. Pruett says dads are critically important simply because “fathers do not mother.”
Pruett’s the second of Dobson’s “sources” to come out against the essay.
So, what’s the mean? Well, Dobson’s a liar, but other than that, probably not that much. Still, it’s always entertaining watching a bigot liar get what he deserves…
