I guess you are out of nonsense so you simply want to change the subject.
I was just curious as to why you're even here. Also, you're talking about abortion in a thread about gay marriage. How is that on topic?

The results are only in their favor when lesbian researchers conduct studies so they're shutting down all studies done by heterosexuals.
Regenerus was a heterosexual. His study revealed homosexuals make horrible parents. He's been attacked by the LGBT community relentlessly since.
All you straight morons who support same sex marriage see how your unholy stupidity is fouling up things you never imaged?
Dear, perhaps you hadn't heard, but the journal which published the Regenerus study, after conducting an investigation of how it managed to get through the peer review process, is now saying that it shouldn't have and if it weren't for the personal bias and inattentiveness of those peers, it wouldn't have. It's not because he happens to be heterosexual, it's because his study is "bullshit" (the word used by the individual who conducted the investigation at the journal), by using a definitions of "being raised" by a "Lesbian mother" or "Gay father" that were vague to the point of being completely meaningless and making invalid comparisons based on the bogus definition. His own university is investigating Regenerus and his study over some very serious allegations of academic fraud.

The other poster cited sex discrimination in the 14th, and tried to act as if both sexes are unequal under the law. That hole was filled with the 19th. Both sexes are now equal under the law.

First of all, genius, the operative words are "at least once." Everyone knows this; and everyone knows you purposely left these words out.

Unfortunately for you, your link doesn't.

Secondly, since we're talking about heteros we're talking about woman -- not men!-- getting corn holed.

This means 100% of hetero males have NEVER been corn holed.

I mention this because you purposely leave this little detail out when you say 38% of heteros engage in anal sex -- that is, give the impression straight males are taking it up the poop shoot when they most assuredly are not.

In other words 100% of gay male REGULARLY get corn holed while 100% of hetero men have never been corn holed.

Indeed, if it's only women getting their fudge packed, what's your point about anal sex?

Also, although 38% of women have been corn holed, few do it REGULARLY -- a fact borne out by their almost non-existent HIV rate.

You're 3% of the population, fella, but 65% of all new HIV cases.

If anal sex isn't the vector, tell us what is.

Tricky dicky ricky, such a flamboyant gay twirler. Missed the Slate article (not), or the one that said the Regenerus study stood head and shoulders above previous 'standards'.

It's obviously not chocolate pudding you are trying to feed us.

And yet the journal that published the "study" is now admitting that it never should have and the university that employs him (for now anyways)m is investigating him for committing academic fraud. But you have an article from "Slate".... Even that lesbian zygote that made you a hermaphrodite thinks your little twirl is embarrassing.

And my 'twirl' is up against all the professional organizations who validated the previous 'studies'. You know, the ones you touted as valid...

I don't expect a reprobate to be embarrassed.

No, I just thought your response was a severe dud, dude.

There you go again, avoiding reality by making up your own.

First of all the only reason the Journal Social Science Research is conducting an "audit" is because of the political pressure made to bear over the Regnerus study.

The Journal has no history of publishing studies that shouldn't be published, nor has it ever been accused of it.

So, the audit was the right thing to do.

The wrong thing to do, however, was to appoint editorial board member Darren Sherkat to conduct the audit. Sherkat is not only pro-same sex marriage, but by the look of his photo on his bio page, a gay male.

http://www.google.com/imgres...

You can't have it both ways.

You can't say the study is invalid because its author has a bias against same sex marriage then say the people conducting the audit/investigation -- who support same-sex marriage -- don't have a bias.

The bottom line is this: the LGBT community scared the Editor and Chief of the Journal into assigning a gay editor to audit and disavow the study, which he promptly did -- "It's bullshit!"

The message from all this is so loud Helen Keller would be able to hear it were she still alive --

"Produce negative research reports on homosexuals at your own peril."

No, we were talking about gender equality, which you claim was created by the 14th Amendment. I'm sorry that you are having trouble keeping up with the conversation.
