This is really simple: If you're incapable of understanding basic logic and gender theory, you have no business on this thread -- because so far, you've merely managed to drive those of us who are actually educated insane with your complete and total ignorance. If you're not willing to educate yourself, then stop posting.
(1) A mother and a father are gender roles -- meaning that a person of either sex and fill these roles. Please do some basic research on what gender and gender roles actually are, because so far you've managed to demonstrate that you know literally nothing about them.
(2) Nowhere has it stated that a role model needs to be a parent -- even in the links you've provided it merely states a 'father-like' figure. A father-like figure (a) doesn't need to be a parent and (b) is a gender role, which means refer back to point (1).
(3) .... Your research is literally meaningless, and the fact that you cannot understand that merely attests to the fact that you cannot understand very basic logic and know absolutely nothing about psychological research standards. (a) the research you've presented was not conducted on same-sex families, which means you cannot apply it to same-sex families.
I don't take research on gravity and apply it to how hydrogen bonds exist, do I? No, because they aren't related. (b) You've presented a measly amount of research, which at this point in time, has never supported your claims (it supports us because it says 'father-like figure' and 'gender'). (c) The research we have has been done by hundreds
of researchers in many different countries and has been peer-reviewed
unlike yours -- which automatically makes our research more acceptable
, because articles which have been peer-reviewed are automatically granted more credibility because if there was any political bias, misinterpretation of data and so on, the reviewers would have caught it. (d) Your own 'conventional wisdom' is useless, as psychology has shown 'conventional wisdom' is often wrong.
Now, when you can understand all of the things which I have above-stated and you can present peer-reviewed research which actually deals with same-sex parents,
then I will take you seriously. Until such a time, you will continue to present yourself as an ignorant broken record who keeps repeating the same false and ignorant information.
