The problem with that is that even if they got everything they wanted they would still not be happy. I say get used to the world in which you were born and deal with it.

From the article: “To bypass the mayhem, Nora sometimes just calls us by name. “Don’t call me Erika!” I plead. “I like being called Mommy. You’re the only one on this planet who can call me Mommy.” But I’m not the only person on this planet she can call Mommy.”

And yet, and yet...they want the rest of us to say “You’re normal, you’re just like heteros, YAY!!!!” But they can’t even say it themselves.

BECAUSE IT ISN’T TRUE!

I would say that the relationship is on the rocks, the kid is up for a hard life due to the narcissism of the writer.

Yeah, that whole “honor” thing has been used by way to many to oppress children who know better. Jesus knew who his mothers and brothers were.

Boo hoo hoo.

I raised my stepdaughter from the age of ten. I get called Mom and get cards and gifts for Mother’s day. Her mother gets called Mama and gets cards and gifts for Mother’s day. No one gets freaked out over it.
