Kids of gay parents fare worse, study finds, but research draws fire from experts 
 

A new study that finds children of a gay or lesbian parent may be more likely to have social and emotional problems has sparked controversy on both sides of the same-sex marriage debate.

The study, from Mark Regnerus, an associate professor of sociology at The University of Texas at Austin, surveyed more than 15,000 Americans between the ages of 18 and 39, asking them questions about their upbringings. Its findings are published in the July issue of Social Science Research.

One survey question asked whether a parent had been in a same-sex relationship during a child's upbringing; Regnerus wanted to see whether there were differences between kids raised in a household by a parent in a same-sex relationship compared with those who were raised by biological parents who were married and heterosexual.

Sixty-nine percent of children of lesbian mothers reported that their family received public assistance, such as welfare at some point, compared with 17 percent from intact biological families. About half of children of an intact biological family said they were employed full-time, compared with 26 percent of those born to a lesbian mother. Fourteen percent of kids of a lesbian mom spent time in foster care at some point, compared with 2 percent of the rest of the children studied. Overall, less than 2 percent of all respondents who said their mother had a same-sex relationship reported living with their mom and her partner for all 18 years of their childhood.

Almost Half of Gay Male Couples Experience Intimate Partner Violence, Study Says 

 

This latest study deepens that existing knowledge with surprising results. After asking both members of couples surveyed whether they experienced violence, researchers were surprised to find that there was very little agreement between partners. Study participants were more likely to report perpetration than victimization.

"My hunch is that it's to do with concepts of masculinity,” says Dr. Stephenson. “It's [perceived as] more masculine to say that you beat someone than that somebody beat you.”

The study also measured internalized homophobia, using a method known as the Gay Identity Scale. Men who had negative feelings about their sexuality were more likely to experience or perpetrate IPV.

It’s difficult to say exactly why this is without further research, Dr. Stephenson notes, although he has some hunches. “We know that violence is often a stress response behavior,” he says. “What I'm finding through studies with male couples is in addition to stresses like unemployment, there's additional stress of being gay. They could be exteral, like experiencing homophobia, or it could be an internal struggle. … There are very few media representations of male couples and we're constantly being told that same sex couples are wrong. … If you don't have the right nurturing environment, it can make you worry about your own sexuality.”

That matches previous research indicating that IPV is more common among people who have themselves been victims of homophobic violence. It’s also more prevalent among whose attitudes about masculinity conformed to what a 2016 study referred to as “struggling to be the alpha.”

This Late-Night Glove Salesman Masturbating Story Is Very Weird but Also True 

 

For years there has been an urban legend in Halifax, Nova Scotia, about "Glove Guy," who would pick up drunk young men and ask them to try on his gloves.

This article originally appeared on VICE Canada.

It was 3 a.m. in Halifax, Nova Scotia, in the dead of winter—typical glove-wearing weather.

Andrew Blackbird had just finished a bartending shift and his wife, who was supposed to drive him home but had presumably fallen asleep, wasn’t answering his calls. Then his phone died. With all the cabs taken up, he started the 25-kilometer [15-mile] walk home.

It wasn’t long until a black SUV rolled up alongside him and a man who looked like Max Headroom asked if he wanted a ride. Desperate and freezing, Blackbird accepted. After Blackbird turned down the man’s request to “party,” the night took a disturbing turn.

According to Blackbird, the man told him, “Drive my jeep and wear my gloves."

Sexual Abuse Against Gay and Bi Men Brings Unique Stigma and Harm 

 

At least 1 in 6 boys are sexually abused before their 18th birthday. This number rises to 1 in 4 men across their lifespan.

The rates of sexual abuse and assault are even higher in boys and men from sexual minority populations.

Sexual violation in gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex individuals often complicates their sense of self, and how they fit, or don’t fit, into LGBTQ+ culture and communities. Such abuse may even impact their reaching out for help or reporting traumatic events as they fear stigmatization or victim-blaming.

A patchwork of anti-discrimination laws don't protect LGBTQ workers 

 

While working at a Billings, Montana, auto dealership in 2016, Kathleen O’Donnell said mechanics would frequently sling insults behind her back, calling her “faggot” and referring to her as “Bob” or “Joe” because of her closely cropped hair. A few days before her six-month probationary period at the dealership ended, O’Donnell recalled, her manager, with tears in his eyes, told her he had to fire her because she was gay. It was the first time O’Donnell had been fired from a job.

Indiana Teen Attacked In Locker Room for Being Gay 

 

An Indiana high school student has faced ridicule after being attacked in a locker room for being gay. After other students started circulating video of the incident around school, the teenage boy’s mother shared the story with Indianapolis TV station WTHR.

“I’m not OK, but I will be,” the student told the news outlet.

And he’s telling anyone else who ever finds themselves the victim of a hate crime to stay strong in spirit.

"Stay true to yourself,” he said, “and if you get hit, do the best you can to make sure it never happens again."

Priest Who Allegedly Stole from Church and Gave to Grindr Tricks Had the Right Idea 

 

Finally, a priest I can really get behind.

Father Joseph McLoone of the St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Downingtown, Pennsylvania, has been arrested for allegedly stealing over $100,000 in donations made to the church between 2011 and 2018. According to a statement from the Chester County District Attorney’s Office (via The Hill), McLoone used the cash to fund a cushy lifestyle that included “a beach house, travel, dining, and spending on adult men with whom he maintained sexual relationships.”

The owner of the Pirates owns a newspaper that called marriage equality, trans rights ‘dubious achievements’ 

 

A small newspaper owned and controlled by Pittsburgh Pirates owner Robert Nutting recently published an editorial that called into question its view of the LGBTQ community. If not for criticism by a progressive news site, few people outside Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley might have seen the editors’ choice of words. Those words also prompted words between Nutting and the publisher.

The Winchester Star is a daily publication with a circulation of less than 20,000, and is operated by Nutting’s Ogden Newspapers, which is publisher of more than 40 newspapers and media outlets across the U.S. It was started by his great-grandfather in 1890. On August 7th, the staff published an editorial critical of Virginia Governor Ralph Northam for the Democrat’s refusal to share a stage with President Donald Trump at the 400th anniversary celebration of the Jamestown settlement.

CVS Is Reportedly a Major Donor to Trump’s 2020 Campaign  

 

If you canceled your Equinox membership over revelations one of its executives hosted a Trump fundraiser, you may want to reconsider your next CVS visit.

The hashtag #BoycottCVS began trending on Thursday following news the company plans to cut reimbursements for women who receive birth control through the mail, which led to swift condemnations from groups like NARAL Pro-Choice America.

Oddly enough, that might not be the only reason for CVS customers to join the campaign. CVS Health Corp. is allegedly one of the largest donors to the president’s reelection campaign. The report was originally published in the Wall Street Journal in February 2018, and the Federal Election Commission website shows they gave $35,000 to the Trump Victory PAC.
