Thoughts on the Ordination of Sexually Active Gay Men and Lesbians (Refs)
Same-Sex Parenting Research: A Critical Assessment is authored by Walter R. Schumm, Ph.D., professor in the Kansas State University School of Family Studies and Human Services. Dr. Schumm has conducted research on gender identity, sexual identity, sexual attraction, and same-sex relationships and parenting since 1999. He has published 39 scholarly articles on GLBT topics (cf. Appendix A in Schumm’s book for a list). In Same-Sex Parenting Research, Schumm masterfully accomplishes three goals. First, Schumm explains how quality, ethical research is done. Second, Schumm reviews what social science research to date does—and does not—tell us about same-sex parenting (SSP). Finally, he examines and critiques the use of social science research concerning SSP in society.
