Report: Obviously agenda-driven 'study' designed to undermine sanctity of sound science

by Jeremy Hooper

In pro-equality circles, it has been a given since day one. However, it's always nice to have more concrete effort that the far-right-beloved Regnerus study, which the anti-equality troops continue to use against us (including in the Supreme Court), was deliberately crafted by this same movement to make gay parents look deficient.

Sofia Resnick weighs in with this in-depth report:

When I say we knew it was bunk from day one, I mean that literally. I was at a conference last June when a fellow activist came up to me and said, [a] a new "study" is coming out this week and [b] the thing is a steaming pile of bull caca (paraphrase). We all saw this for exactly what it is. Hopefully with more press, more will see the same.
