3 bradley jordan's insight:

Mark Regnerus has  admitted his “family structures” study didn’t actually measure gay parenting, comparing the children of separated parents who had same-sex relationships with those of married opposite-sex parents. An internal auditor of the journal that published the Regnerus study last year concluded its findings were false because this false comparison doesn’t adequately measure same-sex parenting. Nevertheless, conservatives have repeatedly cited the study, even to the Supreme Court, claiming same-sex couples are unfit to raise children to substantiate their opposition to marriage equality, even though medical professionals have thoroughly debunked its claims. Now, documents reveal that the anti-gay conservatives who originally funded the study conspired before data was even collected to produce results that could influence “major decisions of the Supreme Court.” truth is that lgbt people are fit parents,some may say even more so then heterosexual parents,many bias and negative feelings and stereotypes about lgbt people pertain to their lifestyle if its productive to society and safe to be around,many of those stereotypes are not true,part of being a parent ais loving your child unconditionaly  , no matter what they do,gay people know this all to well,many having been rejected by their parents based off something they cant control,i personally believe lgbt parents are more compassionate and understanding especially with kids that are different from the norm

3 bradley jordan's insight:

Brady Williams -- patriarch of the polygamous family featured on "My Five Wives" -- now knows the real problem with having 5 wives and 24 children ... he's $400,000 in debt so he's filed for bankruptcy,many people may see this and feel that polygamy may lead to the destruction of marriage  as well as the cause of other problems in ones life. polygamy exists in three specific forms: polygyny - wherein a man has multiple simultaneous wives; polyandry - wherein a woman has multiple simultaneous husbands; or group marriage - wherein the family unit consists of multiple husbands and multiple wives.in some states such as utah polygamy is legal.the practice goes back thousands of years and can be found in various religious text including the bible.some parts of the world polygamy is still practiced these places including some countries in africa and the middle east but for the most part polygamy is a archaic  practice.

Brandon Lusk's curator insight, March 2, 2015 1:35 PM

Well maybe he should've rethought his choice.  He's got 5 wives, 24 children, and he is $400,000 in debt.  That's gonna be very hard to get out of.

Armani Sheard's curator insight, April 23, 2015 12:04 AM

Reality star in major debt.. Could be due to the fact that he has five wives and twenty four children.
