    That's your opinion. You know good and well that prior research is indeed inadequate.
    Nonsense. There is extensive research in this area much of it of very high quality. It's just that every real study has reached conclusions that you don't like.

    and how many children raised by gay/lesbian parents did Regnerus actually study?
