Gay and lesbian parenting more accepted, shows new research

February 5, 2011 21:45 by PrideAngelAdmin
New research shows that over half of the british public now think that gay and lesbian parents can be as equally good parents as straight couples.

A survey commisioned by the charity, Barnardo’s, shows that 57% of people who under took the research agree that same sex parenting is equal to that of straight couples.

Ben Summerskill Chief Executive of Stonewall – the lesbian, gay and bisexual charity – said:

“This research shows the majority of people view lesbian and gay parents as equal to any other parents. Recent Cambridge University research Different Families, commissioned by Stonewall, found that the children of same-sex parents enjoy an equal quality of upbringing as any other children – and they recognise this themselves.”

Mr Summerskill also added that the key to accepting same sex couples was to takle prejudice early on, as some children of same sex parents reported of experiencing homophobic bullying at both primary and secondary school.

I'd personally favor Google. Both FB and Google would benefit from it, but we would likely benefit more from Google taking it over. In the case of Google+ it is just a matter of time. Facebook was lucky it didn't genuinely really need to compete with something as "good" as facebook, the competition was just lacking a lot of features in addition to a global approach.Google+ is excellent to Facebook, nonetheless it has a bigger challenge to obtain popular.Just examine VHS and Betamax. Betamax was better but lost due to bad marketing/licensing.Danny recently posted..Black & Decker NPP2018 18-Volt Cordless Electric Pole Chain Saw
