Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse Identifies “3 Really Pernicious Messages Behind the ‘Lesbians Make Better Parents’ Story Line”


From Dr. Morse on the Ruth Institute blog. Three messages being propagated by the “lesbians make better parents” theme:

1. Women are better parents than men. Therefore, two women are better for kids than a mother and a father. Men are unnecessary and possibly dangerous.

2. The only problems that the children of lesbians experience are really caused by straight society.

3. The children of lesbian parents were intensely planned and deeply wanted. Therefore, manufacturing children through Donor Insemination is superior to conceiving children through an act of sexual intercourse.
