The subject who is truly loyal to the Chief Magistrate will neither advise nor submit to arbitrary measures. Every parent wants their child to become a self-confident, self-aware being who deals well with challenges and can get the most out of life. What if female couples have found the secret?

In the longest-running study on the issue to date, researchers have shown that kids raised by lesbian moms show no significant mental health issues. The study has followed the same mothers and their children since the In the findings, published in the New England Journal of Medicineresearches discovered that the children of these mothers were faring as well or better than others of their age.
Overview: We identified 79 scholarly studies that met our criteria for adding to knowledge about the well-being of children with gay or lesbian parents. Of those studies, 75 concluded that children of gay or lesbian parents fare no worse than other children. While many of the sample sizes were small, and some studies lacked a control group, researchers regard such studies as providing the best available knowledge about child adjustment, and do not view large, representative samples as essential. We identified four studies concluding that children of gay or lesbian parents face added disadvantages.
The Opposition Leader, Bill Shorten, had indicated that was the way the party would go for several weeks now, but today's announcement is the final nail in the coffin for a non-binding public vote on whether the Marriage Act should be changed to allow same-sex couples to wed.

The Williams Institute worked with the adolescents from the National Longitudinal Lesbian Family Study NLFFS to compare those who had a male role model such as the biological father, an uncle, or a grandfather with those who did not. Note: Conservatives attack the NLFFS for being a convenience sample, but when it started inidentifying openly as a lesbian couple raising children was hardly convenient.
It utterly shocked me to realise that some people would be unsure whether or nor I was in favour of a referendum to ensure that gay people are recognised as equal by law. Of course I am. I am currently away travelling, so thankfully have been spared much of what appears to be a pretty distasteful debate back home.
Kelly Higson is bringing up her year-old son and her nine-year-old daughter with her female partner. My children have different fathers, and they have a small amount of contact with them, but basically they're being raised by me and my partner - there's not been a man on the scene for a long time. My mother was a very strong woman and she split up from my father when I was eight.
Try not to make assumptions and let them come and tell you in their own time. One thing you can do is give them the information they need to make good decisions. You can contact Stonewall's Information Service for pointers.
