Your second point that family (a man and a woman raising a child for the full term of the approximate 20 years that it takes for a child's brain to develop) is evolutionarily preferable in the human species is one I had never thought of before.

And I don't know that anyone else is making such an argument.

It certainly seems obvious from the pov of Social Darwinism. But I don't think Social Darwinism is considered science.

While I agree with your argument as a moral/ideological pov, I will offer some objections just to see how you would answer them.

Other mammals with larger brains do not raise their children in intact households. Dogs, Chimpanzees, Apes, etc; they do not mate for life, or even for the term of child development.

Ducks do, however.

I don't think Ducks are known for their size or complexity of their brains.

Here's a partial list of animals who are monogamous. Note that one of those listed is a species of worms:

Beyond genetics, suggesting that progressive's deny the environmental impact on society when discussing homosexuality is a stretch. The entire PC construct is the mechanism which manipulates the environment/culture.
