In addition, it is important to note that the suggestion made by Stacey and Biblarz (2001) regarding possible gender dif- ferences in the development of children raised by lesbian mothers may exist and are underemphasized by researchers appears to be unfounded. Golombok et al. (2003) and Flaks et al. (1995) both investigated differences related to gender among children raised by lesbian mothers and found no sig- nificant results.
MULTICULTURAL ISSUES IN THE RESEARCH
The foremost criticism of the current body of research regarding multicultural issues is the homogeneity of the sub- jects studied. It is well documented that the studies reviewed here and by others (see Millbank, 2003; Patterson, 1992, 1995, 1997, 2000; Stacey & Biblarz, 2001) almost exclu- sively study populations that are White, well-educated, mid- dle class, and American. Although this has been noted by researchers and reviewers over the past two decades, the demographics of sample populations have not changed (Chan et al., 1998; Flaks et al., 1995; Gartrell et al., 2000; Patterson et al., 1998).
