10 Things Not To Say To A Lesbian Mom

10 Things Not To Say To A Lesbian Mom

I have yet to have children but when/if I do, my fiancée and I will most likely be looking at the following annoying inquiries. I know this because we’re already dealing with variations on these same inquiries about our family and how we relate to another one. While there are obviously much, much worse comments you can make to a same-sex family (like my lovely neighbor who daily refers to my fiancée and I as “dyke bitches,” well GOOD MORNING TO YOU TOO), the following always seem to come from well-intentioned individuals.

Woman Calls The Childfree By Choice ‘Liars And Fools’ In Absurd Rant About Her Barren Uterus

Woman Calls The Childfree By Choice âLiars And Foolsâ In Absurd Rant About Her Barren Uterus

U.K. journalist Kate Spicer has written a screed in the (where else) Daily Mail all about how not having children makes her feel “unnatural and sad.” At age 44, her doctor has told her that her chances of getting pregnant naturally were “slim to zero” and that there was a very slim chance IVF would work due to her medical history and her age. But before she gets to all that, Spicer needs to humblebrag about how difficult it is being childless. More »

Mom Spends A Truckload On Pink Baby Crap Only To Unexpectedly Give Birth To Baby Boy

Mom Spends A Truckload On Pink Baby Crap Only To Unexpectedly Give Birth To Baby Boy

I’m not one for silly pink and blue codes when it comes to babies. Whether you want your son to live in a Pepto Bismol sphere or your daughter to play with Thomas trucks may be enough to bait The Gender Police, but whatever floats your kid’s bathtub boats. Not so much the case for 25-year-old Sarah Sharples who was told that she was expecting a girl and promptly shelled out for just about every pink baby item imaginable — and then gave birth to a boy. Save those receipts, ladies. You never know when a wonky sonogram or an elusive fetus will have you regretting your highly gendered purchases. More »

I Explained To My 10-Year-Old Son Why It’s Important To Respect Strippers

I Explained To My 10-Year-Old Son Why Itâs Important To Respect Strippers

Saturday night was just an average, happy evening, hanging out and talking to my 10- year-old and my teenager about strippers. Or exotic dancers. Or adult entertainers. Or whatever term you prefer. My son was in a particularly chatty mood, and if you have a kid around this age you know what a rare occurrence that can be, when they put down theNintendo (NO-FRIEND-O) 3DS and decide they have roughly 80 million questions for mom and dad. And these questions had to do with strippers. More »

Super Angry Kim Kardashian Fans Get Punk’d By Fakeout Baby Snaps, Release Their Fury On Facebook

Super Angry Kim Kardashian Fans Get Punkâd By Fakeout Baby Snaps, Release Their Fury On Facebook

Kim Kardashian once again fooled everyone  a few people who care when she posted a pic of her cradling a baby on her Facebook page, with the caption “Love these precious moments.” But the REAL Kardashian fans were having none of it, so they all quickly determined that this baby was actually an old-school picture of Mason, who belongs to her sister Kourtney. That Kim! Such a jokester! But her legions of fans are getting restless and furious that they have yet to see any photos or appearances from the spawn of Kim and Kanye (Who, because I love talking about post-baby daddy bodies, is looking like a total lardass these days) and they have taken to her Facebook to get real complain-y about it (I know complain-y is not a real word.)
