The Evolution of Science on Same-Sex Households

first_imgPublic Discourse 12 May 2015Now that the Supreme Court’s oral arguments are behind us, and the justices have already privately cast their votes about the future (and the history) of marriage, perhaps it’s possible that the social science of marriage, sexuality, and child outcomes can catch its breath. Better yet, perhaps it can operate without the pressure-cooker of politically acceptable narratives.But after three years, and two separate inquisitions by my own university, I’ve come to conclude that “the beatings will continue until morale improves,” as the saying goes. Or in my case, until I capitulate and admit I was wrong. I’m not above admitting mistakes, but neither am I prone to the sort of reeducation that is being pursued.And so it is that a Washington Post blog recently covered the release of a study that re-analyzes the data I collected and described back in 2012 in my pair of studies of the adult children of parents who have had same-sex relationships, continuing a contest over the meaning of the New Family Structures Study (NFSS) that’s nearing three years in length now. Social science has become a spectator sport.In the spirit of (continued) full disclosure, I was even a blind peer reviewer of an earlier version of this study. I didn’t sign off on what appears in print, but I felt—as a scientist—that alternative analyses at least deserve a hearing, for the sake of science.To their credit, the authors helpfully pointed out a handful of cases that were questionable—respondents whose unlikely answers to other questions (like height, weight, etc.) suggest they weren’t being honest survey-takers. Such a critique is certainly fair and welcome; it’s part of the long-term process of cleaning and clarification in any dataset of substantial size. And removing those questionable cases actually strengthened my original analytic conclusions—and the authors say so: “. . . these adjustments have minimal effect on the outcomes . . . these corrections actually increase the number of significant differences . . .” read more

Tom Brady on Josh Allen hit: Running the ball makes you ‘susceptible to big hits’

first_imgHowever, he was kept out of the game and is in concussion protocol, and backup Matt Barkley stepped in to finish the job.Brady said he remembered when he became the Patriots’ starter in 2001 after Drew Bledsoe was injured on a hit and the advice coach Bill Belichick gave him.”I was scrambling up the right side, and tried to hold on to the ball, and tried to slide late. The guy hit me and my helmet flew about 10 yards away. It kind of riled up their whole sideline,” Brady said. “I remember the next day, Coach Belichick said to me — I’ll never forget this — he said: ‘Hey Brady, if you want to have a career in this league, when you’re running like that, you either throw the ball away or slide.’ I’ve kind of taken to that.” “A lot of quarterbacks who do run, they’re trying to make yards and it’s great. At the same time, you’re susceptible to big hits,” Brady said in his weekly segment on WEEI.”Whether it’s flagged or not, or whether it’s a penalty, a lot of the rules have changed over the years, but from a quarterback’s standpoint I feel like it’s always best to try to be available to the team, and it’s trying to take risk/reward and so forth. Nobody likes to see anybody get hurt out there. From my own experience, I try to do the best I can to avoid any big shots like that.” Related News Appeal hearing reportedly set after Vontaze Burfict gets season-long suspension Mitchell Trubisky injury update: Bears QB has dislocated left shoulder, report sayscenter_img Tom Brady felt bad for Bills quarterback Josh Allen when he was knocked out of Sunday’s game after a brutal helmet-to-helmet hit, but said that’s part of the risk a quarterback takes when he runs the ball.The Bills were furious after the hit, saying cornerback Jonathan Jones should have been ejected. However, Brady said quarterbacks need to be careful when they run the ball. Allen was hurt in the fourth quarter of the Bills 16-10 loss to New England when Jones used his helmet to slam into Allen as he was rushing. Allen stayed on the ground for several minutes and was tended to by medical personnel, but was able to get up and walk to the sideline under his own power.last_img read more
