What Makes a Baby Moonbat

Everything has to be different, in a country that has been fundamentally transformed in accordance with political correctness. For example, now that the traditional family structure has been discarded as patriarchal, oppressive, and unhip in favor of more nuanced arrangements, new tools will be needed to teach children about the birds and the bees. Cory Silverberg fills the gap with a children’s book project entitled What Makes a Baby:

What Makes a Baby is my response to the fact that books about where babies come from leave many of us out. They tell a nice story (mommy + daddy + intercourse = you!) but the truth is that more and more of us are acknowledging the help we get to bring children into our lives. That help might be a doctor, fertility clinic, adoption or foster agency; it might be a turkey baster and a friend; it might be a sperm donor or a surrogate. …

Crafted for children roughly from pre-school to 8-years-old, What Makes a Baby is written and illustrated to include all kinds of kids, all kinds of adults, and all kinds of families — regardless of how many people were involved, what the orientation, gender identity, or other make up of the family is, or how it came to be that way. It’s a social justice approach to sex education.

Apparently he’s doing fund raising to pay for publication, so it’s not out yet.

Here’s another comment on it:

Hah! I can't argue with that succinct observation.
Of course I believe in 'de-evolution', where the next 'dumber' generation make advances as they stand on the shoulders of the previous 'brighter' generation... But I have to admit, as a Nation we've certainly embraced foolishness over wisdom.
First and foremost, although greatly blessed, as a Nation we ignore and denigrate the Creator.
But beyond that, although our Founders left us with a Constitution that supersedes any Government document previously established, we've elected government officials that ignore it, and we've turned it into a 'general guidelines' paper to be set aside at a whim. We have a culture that exults promiscuity and destructive behavior. We'd rather commit National suicide rather than be called 'intolerant' -- never mentioning the idea that maybe some practices should not be 'tolerated'.
Yes, we are a generation of fools and idiots.

There was a Reader’s Digest snippet about a young boy who asked his dad where he came from. The father had dreaded this day, but manned up and told the kid, in extended detail about the birds and the bees.

After it was over, he asked the kid why he wanted to know. The kid said, “Well, Jimmy said he was from Cleveland and wanted to know where I came from”.

My third child of four, a son, asked my wife a few years ago how babies were made. I think the boy was maybe eight at the time. Wife, not wanting to sugar-coat things, gave him the straight scoop in biology-class terms.

My son was horrified. His first reaction was "Oh, that's GROSS! I'm NEVER getting married!!!" Then, as the wheels continued to turn in his head he said "You and Dad did that FOUR TIMES?!?"

Wife chuckled to herself and nodded to the boy. Yep... four times.

My youngest was about that age when he sidled up to me and smirked, "Dad, they told us in school how babies are made." I replied, "How do you think we got you?" He reeled back in horror, "YOU DID THAT TO MOM?!!!" Wouldn't talk to me for a few days and wouldn't make eye contact with "mom". We tried to hide our hysterics. Finally the older boy took him aside and explained things.

I told that story to a female co-worker, who had three girls and she related an experience similar to yours. One day her youngest got her aside and whispered, "Mom, I know you've done IT at least three times."

Gotta love it.
