Voteonmarriage.org, the anti-gay-marriage organization that Governor Romney of Massachusetts is endorsing, links to an article which argues that opposite-sex couples raise better-adjusted children than same-sex couples. One of the more crapulous arguments – and one that's highlighted in the article, so I'm not taking it out of context or anything – is the claim that "Children need mom's softness as well as dad’s roughhousing."


I wonder if Romney will set up a special task force to take children away from insufficiently rough dads or insufficiently soft moms...

Focus on the Family isn't exactly known for their *non*-crapulous arguments on any given social or political topic. ;)

The assumption that the two-parent heterosexual household is automatically a perfect utopia of enlightened child-rearing always amuses me, darkly.
