The latest queer parenting news round-up!

The male donors are all right

Lesbian parents are satisfied with how much contact we have with male donors, and we usually don’t think of known donors as dads, according to according to a study out of the Williams Institute. Participants in the study say they think of their relationships with donors in one of three ways: as donors who are not members of the family, extended family members and, well, as dads.

 The Fosters is here!

There’s been the build-up, the One Million Moms getting their 2,377 knickers in a knot, and now, we can watch. The Fosters, J Lo’s show about two lesbian moms and their brood of teens from a variety of places, is here. Despite this review, I don’t think there’s any point in resisting an addiction to this show:

11-year-old son of lesbian moms speaks up in anti-bullying video

Caine Smith, the son of two lesbian moms, participated in the The Bully Project back in 2011, telling the reality of his life as a kid who is bullied. The video is making the rounds again, under a new promotion run for the project, and you can see Caine bravely tell us how things are, and then bravely tell the school board it’s time to act up on bullying.

Not a day goes by where I am not pushed, punched or called a fag.

 Another queer spawn speaks up for same sex marriage

I’m starting to think that kids or queer parents are some of the most articulate and amazing creatures on Earth. (For proof: Caine Smith, and here and here.) This time it’s Riley Roberts, raised by lesbian moms in Nevada, who spoke at a state assembly on whether gay marriage should stay on the table. (The tally was 27-14, meaning the state can move on to another vote of assembly, and then hold a ballot for state residents on same sex marriage.)

What I love best about Riley’s speech is that he’s not afraid to wear his heart on his sleeve, and make a strong point at the same time.   Riley says:

The idea of an opposition to equal rights just bewilders me I can not even fathom it.
