Dr. Kevin Alderson, an assistant professor of counselling psychology (Division of Applied Psychology, Faculty of Education) at the University of Calgary, says surveys suggest that about 20 percent of lesbian women and 10 percent of gay men are biological parents, while the 2000 U.S. Census revealed that 34 percent of cohabiting female couples and 22 percent of male cohabiting couples had children under age 18 living with them (although, Alderson cannot conclude that all of these women and men are "lesbians" or "gay.").From the U.S. Census, this compares to 46 percent of heterosexual married couples who are raising children.Alderson's areas of research interest include all aspects of human sexuality, gender studies and gay identity.Alderson can also talk about whether or not there are differences between the emotional adjustment and sexual orientation of children raised by homosexual and heterosexual parents.Throughout his career as a psychologist, Dr. Alderson has counselled hundreds of gay men and lesbian women and he currently maintains a part-time private practice.Kevin AldersonPhone: 220-6758Email:

Although the 21st century has brought about many shifts in what defines gender roles, according to Dr. Kevin Alderson, some things are not going to change.
Alderson, who is a licensed psychologist and professor of counselling psychology at the U of C, said that the family one grows up in shapes the way one sees the world.
"We tend to carry the habits of our families," he said.
In Western society men still have that "little bit" of extra power over women, Alderson said, but the trends of traditional gender roles have lessened, and they are more common in less educated couples.
Men who are struggling to find their place in relationships may be having a problem due to society's need to categorize them. Alderson said that though men no longer have to adhere to the "alpha male" stereotypes of the past, there exists a sacred line they don't want to cross in portrayal of their masculinity for fear of being seen in a way that they do not want to be seen.
Alderson also said that in relationships, women still want a rugged guy and expect men to be the stronger partners.
According to him, men are very conscious of how they present themselves.
Alderson also specializes in working with people who have sexuality and gender identity concerns, and he said that in the LGBTQ community, relationship roles are more versatile.
While LGBTQ relationships are not as defined, Alderson said that a gay male relationship consisting of two 'tops' could pose a sexual satisfaction issue because not every gay man enjoys anal sex.
In regards to gender roles, Alderson also believes that people are trying to escape the confines of discrimination on a whole, and society needs to introduce people to diversity at a young age.
