Kids of lesbians do well

That's according to this 25-year study.The study was commissioned by advocates, but I don't find the results surprising. The pregnancies are planned. The parents are generally older and more mature. And there is two of them.

Wendy Wright, of Concerned Women for America, doesn't buy it, noting that studies show that kids raised in households with a man and a woman do better. But I'm pretty sure those studies are comparing two-parent households vs, one-parent households. So she shouldn't be surprised either. These are two-parent households.

What are your thoughts?
