MSNBC: Kids Don’t Need Fathers


Father’s Day is coming up a week from Sunday. MSNBC has begun to honor it already — by proclaiming that fathers are needed only for their sperm:

Being raised by a same-sex couple is no hindrance to healthy psychological development, researchers say as the first generation of children conceived by lesbians through donor insemination is coming of age.

In fact, lesbian mothers rated their 17-year-olds higher in social and academic skills, and lower in rule-breaking and aggression, than did mothers of teenagers who also had a father.

Yet despite the agenda it so aggressively promotes, even MSNBC admits that

those teenagers who — according to their mothers — experienced homophobia and bullying did turn out to be more anxious and have more depressive symptoms than their peers. It wasn’t clear if the anxiety was a product of the bullying or if it was the other way around.

If I’m translating out of the liberalese correctly, this means that some of the kids had a hard time fitting in because their bizarre upbringing warped them into sexually perplexed freakazoids. Who would have thought?

Sociology deals more in horsefeathers than facts, but there is one sociological fact no serious person can deny: when the family falls apart, society falls apart. This is why our liberal overlords are willing to go to such perverse extremes to destroy it. After all, they can’t create utopia until they have “fundamentally transformed” American civilization out of their path.
