Judged for being a Two Mum Family.

There is actually ample, credible research that demonstrates children with at least ONE loving, supportive parent (of any gender) fair best. They might have two or more, or they might have two moms, two dads, etc., but the essential element is at least ONE stable, loving, supportive parent. Anything above that is a bonus!

Thank you for reading and commenting, I complete agree. Not only from a same sex family, but as someone who was raised by a single parent. Love and support is most definitely all you need.

It’s a shame such views exist! I encountered something recently and also couldn’t believe my ears. Love is love. I’m glad we live in such a liberal, open-minded & diverse city 🙂

Kate Everall says:

Seriously? That’s so sad, especially in Brighton. I’m really hopeful that one day such ignorance won’t exist.

Thank you! 🙂

Beautifully written post. I felt so sad after hearing about the horrible comments Jess received. My wife was abused in the street a while back, and it was just really awful and upsetting. I just don’t understand it.

Kate Everall says:

Oh my gosh that’s awful. Why do people feel it necessary to do that? What point are they proving? I’m so sorry to hear your wife went through that.

Thank you so much for reading.

I’ve been on the receiving end of a few homophobic remarks over the years but none affected me the way this one did when someone, on finding out my son had two mums, replied with ‘that poor child’. I completely understand how it must of felt reading those comments. Such a well written post.

Kate Everall says:

That’s horrible. They’ve made that split judgement without even knowing you.

It’s disgusting people can even question anothers parenting based on their sexual orientation! I love the fact you broke down her pathetic attempts with some fantastic responses. People like her have no clue at all!

Kate Everall says:

Exactly this. They speak from ignorance and, quite frankly, fear. They have no idea about our family so react with hate rather than curiosity. It’s really sad.

I honestly don’t how sexual orientation and parenting can collide or make a difference, but some people feel it obviously does.

I was so sorry to read this. I hope that one day there will come a time when nobody judges each other. It says so much about them that they feel it’s ok to say things like this.That said, I am judging them. They are arseholes. And you two lovely ladies are the most amazing parents to your gorgeous little boy.

Thank you, lovely. That’s really kind. I’m totally judging them but also learning how not to be an a-hole.

Amanda says:

I am so, so sorry that this kind of attitude exists. Not only does it show ignorance, it also shows a sense of entitlement, as if their opinion is somehow more important than actual statistical evidence!

It is so abundantly clear, when reading your posts, just how deeply loved and cherished and supported T is. And it’s also perfectly clear how truly happy and secure he is because of this. How anyone can miss that is beyond me.

Thank you so much for continuing to share not only the joy in your life, but also the darkness you have to face when it comes to homophobia and judgement 🙁 it’s something I will never have to face, and that’s a privilege I will never overestimate. So I am grateful to you for sharing the raw moments, so I can be more aware of what you have to face. And one day, soon I hope, everyone will understand that love is love and that’s all that truly matters!
