Time recently ran an article, Study: Children of Lesbians May Do Better Than Their Peers, which shares research findings about how children of lesbians often thrive:
…They were surprised to discover that children in lesbian homes scored higher than kids in straight families on some psychological measures of self-esteem and confidence, did better academically and were less likely to have behavioral problems, such as rule-breaking and aggression.
As someone married to a guy raised by a lesbian mother, I can offer anecdotal reports that he supports these findings. A study group of one is hardly good research, so I love reading research that support my personal experience with lesbian-spawn.
The researchers have some interesting theories on why these behavioral differences might exist — it’s worth reading the article.
