Topics discussed in this episode of the Dr. J Show include

  • Many "scientific" research studies are driven by, and corrupted by, an agenda.
  • LGBTQIA+ apologists masquerading as scientists resist admitting the baseline differences in parenting results.
  • LGBTQIA+ apologists add duplicate variables, because, if you keep adding variables, you can design your conclusion.
  • 55% of children living under same-sex couples experience parental separation.
  • There are professional pressures on researchers to ignore basic factors.
  • The promiscuity & relationship instability of the homosexual lifestyle inevitably leads to break-ups, which most harm children. Among homosexuals, "open" relationships of tolerated cheating is just "another way of loving."
  • SCOTUS' Obergefell decision did nothing to diminish sexual minority distress. The fact is, neither hormones nor surgery helps mental health issues in transgenders.
  • Even though a pro-trans study may be proven wrong, it still gets shared (cited) all around the world.
  • LGBTQIA+ social media trolls create scandals and/or crises to discredit studies that disprove the gay or trans agenda.
  • Homosexuals and transgenders do not like reality (the truths of this life). LGBTQIA+ people will always be at war with the truth, because they hate reality and want to change human nature.
  • Like many professions since the Sexual Revolution, to be accepted, sociologists must pay respects to false gods.
  • Parental stability is key for a child's academic and psychological progress. If we took children's rights seriously, the way we understand these things would be profoundly different.
  • Kids are entitled to a relationship with both their natural parents.
