HowStuffWorks Debunks 5 Gay Parenting Myths

by The Next Family February 29, 2016

HowStuffWorks is an education website that answers questions about the world around you and last week, they took on gay parenting myths.

Though many people, researchers and gay parents themselves, have written articles, blogs, or reports about gay parenting and the myths associated with it, there are still people who believe that gay parents are not as good as heterosexual parents, making this video still significant and useful today.

HowStuffWorks debunks the five biggest gay parenting myths of which include, “gay parents will raise gay kids” and “kids need parents of both genders.” They provide pictures and citations and explanations of convoluted research in clear and simple ways.

With the recent denial of gay adoption in Italy and the lack of marriage equality and adoption equality for gay couples in Australia, videos like this can be very useful in changing the minds and hearts of people all over the world. (We are a more visual society now, too!)

So share it. Share videos like this far and wide and let’s make a difference one video at a time.

Representation of Modern Families in Kid-Friendly Entertainment

By Alex Temblador

I recently wrote an article for The Next Family called, “Family-Friendly Films That Feature Adoption and Foster Care,” that shared wonderful family films with adoption or foster care story lines. My reasoning behind doing so was because every family deserves a chance to see similar families like theirs represented in various forms of entertainment.

The same can be said of other...
