A new study that shows the children of lesbian couples to have fewer behavior problems than kids on average is drawing criticism from conservative groups. Shocker. The study, which was published recently in the journal Pediatrics, consisted of interviews and surveys which followed 78 lesbian couples and their kids for almost 25 years.
Overall, kids with lesbian moms rated higher in “social, academic and total competence” and lower in “social, rule-breaking, aggressive problem behavior” than their peers. Even Dr. Nanette Gartrell, the author of the study, was surprised by her findings. “I would have anticipated the kids would be doing as well as the normative sample,” Gartrell said. “I didn’t expect better.” Well, duh. It’s all that processing!
In entertainment news, Elton John, who once teamed up on-stage with rapper Eminem to say “give peace with guys who capitalize on homophobia in rap and hip hop culture a chance,” has topped himself in the WTF department. Over the weekend, John performed at a celebrity wedding. Whose wedding was it? Perhaps Alanis Morisette’s? Nope. What, did Sting renew his vows? Or did one of those nice kids of Princess Diana’s elope? No and no. Elton John sang at RUSH LIMBAUGH’S wedding.
Yeah. Rush “When a gay person turns his back on you, it is anthing but an insult; it’s an invitation” Limbaugh. Well, I don’t know. Maybe they’re pals. According to People Magazine, John and Limbaugh agree on gay marriage (of which neither are fans) and, perhaps, free market enterprise as well: John was paid a cool $1 million to perform. Yeah. Elton, honey? Honestly. There’s not enough money in the world for a self-respecting gay person to perform at this guy’s birthday party, much less his wedding.
Finally, Lady Gaga’s third music video from her mega hit sophomore effort, The Fame Monster, is due out this morning. The video for “Alejandro,” a snippet of which was previewed last week on Larry King Live, is said to be Gaga’s homage to her friendships with gay men. See for yourself!
