A study claiming better wellbeing among children of same-sex couples was based on data that merits "healthy scepticism" due to "suspect science" such as selective surveying, a sociology professor has said.
State gay marriage laws are under attack in courts across the land, but the legal battle over gay marriage in Michigan has broken new ground as a federal court has weighed — and rejected — research questioning the impact of same-sex unions on children.
Michigan has spent about $40,000 so far on experts whose testimony at a trial over gay marriage was panned as a "fringe viewpoint" by the judge.
The author of a controversial study of adult children often cited by opponents of gay marriage defended his work in court on Monday but also said it was too early for social scientists to make far-reaching conclusions about families headed by same-sex couples.

America's young adults seem star-crossed all right: If she's looking for a serious commitment, and he's looking for a hot date tonight, what are their chances for love, let alone marriage?
A gay-parenting study condemned by gay activists is about to undergo more scrutiny: A Florida judge this week said internal emails related to the study must be turned over to a gay activist who is looking for evidence to have the study officially discredited and retracted.

Amid a firestorm of criticism over a pair of new studies on gay parenting, the world's largest organization of psychologists has affirmed its own position that sexual orientation is not a factor in parental fitness.
Two studies released Sunday may act like brakes on popular social-science assertions that gay parents are the same as — or maybe better than — married mother-father parents.

Think you haven't heard of sexual economics? Listen to the pop culture.
Among young, single Americans, men still want sex and women still want love and commitment. But the rules of engagement have changed dramatically since the birth-control pill and these rules "clearly favor men," sociology professor Mark Regnerus told a think tank Tuesday.

He said the data collection process is comparable to an effort to study the wellbeing of children of evangelical Christian parents by recruiting survey respondents from parents of Sunday school attendees at churches in prosperous, socially supportive communities, and then comparing this sample to a population-based survey studying average children from average families.
"This is not consonant with the average couple’s experience, whether that couple is an opposite-sex or same-sex pair," Regnerus said. "In this study, as in much of the same-sex marriage movement, the public is treated only to the lives and experiences of the LGBT elite. Those with more modest means are missing in action."
