Podcast: "Surrogacy is child trafficking," Kajsa Ekis Ekman, Festival of Dangerous Ideas

Ms Ekman describes herself as “a feminist, a socialist, a humanist, a Marxist and a mother.”  She says that surrogacy and prostitution are two sides of the same coin because they both separate sex and children, and are both supported by the claim that women have a right to do as they wish with their own body.

How different are the adult children of parents who have same-sex relationships?

This study presents new and extensive empirical evidence that suggests there are differences in outcomes between the children of a parent who had a same-sex relationship and children raised by their married, biological mothers and fathers. The data compares children from intact biological families to children who were raised with a parent who had same-sex relationships; and discusses how the young-adult children of a parent who has had a same-sex romantic relationships fare, on 40 different social, emotional, and relational outcome variables when compared with six other family-of-origin types.

How ideology took over schools

Welcome to the world of gender theory. A world, as argued by the Gender Fairy story, where primary-school children can choose the gender they want to be as “only you know whether you are a boy or a girl. No one can tell you”. Continue reading

Marriage deserves a referendum, not a quickie plebiscite

Australians are being short-changed and rushed to judgment on same-sex marriage. Short-changed because their Constitution has been misinterpreted, and rushed because politicians want to get it approved by a plebiscite and finished with as quickly as possible. Continue reading

Same-Sex Parenting and Children’s Outcomes: Brief on Lesbian and Gay Parenting

An examination of the 2005 American Psychological Association assertion that “Not a single study has found children of lesbian or gay parents to be disadvantaged in any significant respect relative to children of heterosexual parents”, as well as 59 published studies cited by the APA to support the proposition. The examination shows that there is contradictory data and conclusions that are not empirically warranted to support the APA claim. This examination also indicates that only four of the 59 studies cited by the APA even met the APA's own standards, by "provid[ing] evidence of statistical power." As the author documents, "not one of the 59 studies referenced in the 2005 APA Brief compares a large, random, representative sample of lesbian or gay parents and their children with a large, random, representative sample of married parents and their children."

Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen, After the Ball: How America (& the West) will conquer its fear and hatred of Gays in the 90’s

This book documents the successful national marketing strategy for the public normalisation of homosexuality. The proposed strategy, which has since been executed almost to perfection throughout the Western media and entertainment industry, describes tactics to desensitise the public to the gay lifestyle and to ridicule or marginalize opposition.  It is an important guide to pro homosexual advocates and casts a light on the disingenuous and propaganda driven campaign to redefine marriage and normal familial relations.

Ryan T. Anderson, Truth Overruled: The Future of Marriage and Religious Freedom (Regnery, 2015)

This book is the first to respond to the US Supreme Court’s decision on same-sex marriage. In it, Anderson draws on the best philosophy and social science to explain what marriage is, why it matters for public policy, and the consequences of its legal redefinition. Within the book there is also a chapter highlighting the stories of children of gays and lesbians who have spoken out about how redefining marriage has social costs. Continue reading
