The results were similar to those in the original article 4but the magnitude of some of the differences declined somewhat. This paper confirms the findings of Allen et al.

The study found that numerous, consistent differences do exist between children of parents who have had same-sex relationships and those with married, heterosexual parents.
Intergroup Bias, the degree to which children feel that their own gender is superior to the other gender, was assessed with eight items e.
The presence of these untested confounding factors makes it impossible, at present, to conclude that the sexual orientation of homosexual parents causes most of the negative outcomes in their children; nor does it rule out such a conclusion.

Schumm 7 conducted two meta-analyses of the results from previous studies concerning this issue a meta-analysis combines and analyzes data from selected published studies in order to increase the sample size sufficiently to detect smaller differences and increase statistical power, thereby compensating for the small sample sizes and lack of statistically significant differences in the selected studies.
The more accepting cultural context seems to positively affect children who grow up in same-sex families: In comparison with children of lesbian parents in the USA, In lesbian and heterosexual families in which childcare and paid work outside the home were unequally divided between the two parents, children more frequently opted for future.
