Weak Data, Small Samples, and Politicized Conclusions on LGBT Discrimination

Jan 14, 2020 by

by Mark Regnerus, Public Discourse: The measurement, analytic, and interpretive decision-making displayed in much (though certainly not all) of the LGBT discrimination and well-being literature is troubling, indicative of a lack of standards, poorly defined concepts, impressionistic conclusions derived from small numbers of interviews, the politicization of results, and the overall novelty of the field. According to a purported deep dive into the social scientific literature, discrimination...

The “compromise” soon becomes a zero-sum game with only one winner. In recent years, almost all Western nations have adopted anti-discrimination equality legislation. At first glance, this seems like a good idea. After all, who could be against equality? As the...
