Truth Wins Out strongly urges the media to closely review all social science used by anti-gay activists and organizations. It is imperative to check directly with the original source of any study these organizations cite to ensure honesty and accuracy.
Once an anti-gay organization has proven it chronically misrepresents the conclusions of scholarly work, it has lost credibility and reporters should reconsider whether it is a reliable source. To interview people or groups known to deliberately lie about the lives of GLBT people is harmful – particularly to gay youth.
Social science is a powerful discipline that can influence attitudes and affect the way GLBT people and their families are treated by society. Please consider the importance of respecting the research of legitimate scientists and going the extra mile in reporting the facts. Performing due diligence is vital when you consider that the goal of anti-gay organizations is using science to justify their discrimination.
