I assume it to mean "published as an article". I have no doubt these kinds people of exist in real life and their hardships are true. Fundies on all sides are kinda meh.
Ok, sure, I also believe these people exist. There's a whooping 7 billion people out there. You have
to find anything
out there. Even children who suffer from autism after they took some vaccines, if you get my point. The only reason anyone should be discussing this article is not whether if these kinds of particular cases exist or not. That is perfectly trivial. The only reason is if and only if
these cases are representative of an actual problem that manifests in more situations than outside of standard deviation situations.
So for the reason I outlined (and Karajorma / Mongoose, yes that is the correct interpretation) and for the fact that there is no actual study, just particulars, strikes me as infuriatingly silly.
Take this paragraph, for instance:
“Now we are normalizing a family structure where a child will always be deprived daily of one gender influence and the relationship with at least one natural parent,” she explains, “Our cultural narrative becomes one that, in essence, tells children that they have no right to the natural family structure or their biological parents, but that children simply exist for the satisfaction of adult desires.”
That's the typical conservative narrative (and yes, Karajorma, I get what you're saying regarding right wing and conservativism, but we are speaking about gay parenthood, in which it's quite straightforward to say the right wingers are conservative), but it is inconsistent with the rest of the society we are living in.
We already allow single parenthood. We already allow divorces. So what is this whining about how children have a *right* to a father and a mother? It's such typical right wing claptrap. What is the conservative solution? Get rid of divorces? Once someone becomes a single parent, get their child away from them and put those children into a household where there's a father and a mother? Or, more to the point, what of children who aren't adopted, but could be adopted by a gay couple? Should they be left unadopted, because they "deserve a father and a mother"? What sense does that make? None, as far as I can tell. I have yet to see a conservative position regarding this issue that I can respect. It's just propaganda silly shenanigans.
