Children of lesbians less likely to form mental illness

A study from the University of Copenhagen has found that children of lesbian parents are less likely to develop mental illnesses. The study finds:

while five percent of children from traditional families developed conditions such as depression or anorexia between 1992 and 2008, the number was two percent among the 387 children of lesbian parents participating in the study. The findings, according to Merete Lauberg, of the University Of Copenhagen Department Of Public Health, suggest that concerns that alternative families have a negative effect on child development are over.

Now what kind of ridiculous excuses will conservatives jump to now that it's been established that same-sex parenting is not only as good as heterosexual parenting, but apparently BETTER for the children in terms of their mental health?
