Memo To Bill O'Reilly: Study Shows 0% Child Abuse In Lesbian Households

Reported by Priscilla - November 10, 2010 -

Remember when "traditionalist" Bill O'Reilly claimed, with regard to parenting, that "nature dictates that a dad and a mom is the optimum" because with same sex parents "you're taking Mother Nature and you're throwing it right out the window, and I just think it's crazy." He also gave us this gem when he asked why, if children are not harmed by same sex parenting, "wouldn't nature then make it that anybody could get pregnant by eating a cupcake?" I know that this will come as a surprise; but America's heterosexual daddy might have been proven wrong. A study by the Williams Institute, a research center on sexual orientation law and public policy at UCLA School of Law, has released a study on lesbian headed families and found that "none of the 78 NLLFS ( National Longitudinal Lesbian Family Study) adolescents reports having ever been physically or sexually abused by a parent or other caregiver. This contrasts with 26 percent of American adolescents who report parent or caregiver physical abuse and 8.3 percent who report sexual abuse." So much for "traditionalist" assumptions!
