Psychology of the Scientist: LXXXV. Research on Homosexuality: A Response to Schumm (and Herek)

Authors: Paul Cameron and Kirk Cameron

Summary: Because social science is “messy,” just about any criticism of any work — including our efforts — has validity. But the empiricist principle is more important than a theoretical search for perfection in research. The findings from our 1983-1984 nationwide random survey are superior to earlier efforts and similar enough to those reported by the 1992 nationwide random survey conducted by University of Chicago investigators, the 1994 British effort, and the 1996 NHSDA to suggest all approximate “a similar truth about reported sexuality.”
