Children with Lesbian Parents Are Better, Smarter, Faster

Okay, maybe not "better".  That's so...subjective.  Faster?  Yeah, I just threw that in to complete the Bionic Man euphemism.  To my knowledge, there's no evidence to support the claim (but that doesn't mean it's not true!)

But smarter?  To steal a line from Sarah from Wasilla, "You betcha!" *wink*

According to a study,
children in lesbian homes scored higher than kids in straight families on some psychological measures of self-esteem and confidence, did better academically and were less likely to have behavioral problems, such as rule-breaking and aggression.

Come to think of it, fewer behavioral problems might count as making these kids "better".  That's qualitative evidence, right? 

Now, we just need to do a study pitting these kids against kids from straight families.  I'm guessing that if they're psychologically sturdier as a group than their hetero-raised counterparts, they'll be less prone to depression and it's horrible symptom of eating for comfort and therefor be less apt to be overweight.  Hypothetically, they'd win more foot races.  That'd be the Bionic Trifecta!

And so much for the complete unraveling of society at the hands of homos.  Not that government is going to listen to SCIENCE when making policy decisions, but it sure sounds to me as if this is a good argument in favor of gay marriage.
