Zero Child Abuse In Lesbian Households

Many thanks go to Feministing for pointing out this study demonstrating that there are no reports of child abuse within lesbian households (as opposed to 26% of American adolescents overall, ostensibly from heterosexual households, who report parent or caregiver physical abuse). One more reason not to discriminate against parents claiming a different sexual orientation than the norm.
