Video from “When the Professional becomes Political: Responding to the New Family Structures Survey” at the 2013 Annual Meeting of the American Sociological Association

This panel grew out of the controversy following the publication of Mark Regnerus’s article “How Different are the Adult Children of Same Sex Parents? Findings from the New Family Structures Study” in the journal Social Science Research. The article’s claims about these adult children have been debated, debunked and also relied upon for a variety of claims about same sex families and GLB rights in general. This panel brought to bear a distinctly sociological perspective on this research, addressing methods, claims making, media responses to the study as well as the very nature of this type of research.
