Same‐Sex Marriage: A Construct in a Quest for Ecological Validity

Same‐Sex Marriage: A Construct in a Quest for Ecological Validity The Kitzinger and Wilkinson's ASAP paper serves as the foundation for this discussion of the same‐sex marriage construct. The major focus of this discussion is, “What needs to occur in order for ecological validity to be achieved?” First, there needs to be some concerted attention paid to the entire spectrum of close relationships (at both the positive and the negative end of the continuum) before the same‐sex marriage construct is fully embraced. Next, some attention needs to be paid to the diversity of viewpoints/beliefs/attitudes that exists concerning same‐sex marriage within the ethnically and culturally diverse LGBT communities. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Analyses of Social Issues & Public Policy Wiley

Abstract

The Kitzinger and Wilkinson's ASAP paper serves as the foundation for this discussion of the same‐sex marriage construct. The major focus of this discussion is, “What needs to occur in order for ecological validity to be achieved?” First, there needs to be some concerted attention paid to the entire spectrum of close relationships (at both the positive and the negative end of the continuum) before the same‐sex marriage construct is fully embraced. Next, some attention needs to be paid to the diversity of viewpoints/beliefs/attitudes that exists concerning same‐sex marriage within the ethnically and culturally diverse LGBT communities.
