Lesbian parenthood: a review of the literature

, : Lesbian parenthood: a review of the literature. American Journal of Orthopsychiatry 68(3): 376-389

Findings of lesbian family research published between 1980 and 1996 are reviewed. The research describes characteristics of lesbian families, and challenges faced by these families, in the context of heterosexist and homophobic societal attitudes. The major research findings are discussed, clinical implications are noted, and areas in need of further investigation are proposed.

Cysteine proteinases are relevant to several aspects of the parasite life cycle and of parasite-host relationship. Moreover, they appear as promising targets for antiparasite chemotherapy. Here, the first quantitative investigation on the steady-s...
