Skip to comments.Growing Up With Two Moms: The Untold Children’s View
Posted on 03/26/2013 8:51:39 AM PDT by Maelstorm
Between 1973 and 1990, when my beloved mother passed away, she and her female romantic partner raised me. They had separate houses but spent nearly all their weekends together, with me, in a trailer tucked discreetly in an RV park 50 minutes away from the town where we lived. As the youngest of my mothers biological children, I was the only child who experienced childhood without my father being around.
After my mothers partners children had left for college, she moved into our house in town. I lived with both of them for the brief time before my mother died at the age of 53. I was 19. In other words, I was the only child who experienced life under gay parenting as that term is understood today.
Quite simply, growing up with gay parents was very difficult, and not because of prejudice from neighbors. People in our community didnt really know what was going on in the house. To most outside observers, I was a well-raised, high-achieving child, finishing high school with straight A's.
Inside, however, I was confused. When your home life is so drastically different from everyone around you, in a fundamental way striking at basic physical relations, you grow up weird. I have no mental health disorders or biological conditions. I just grew up in a house so unusual that I was destined to exist as a social outcast.

No, this can’t be true. From what we’re told children of queer “parents” are just as normal as can be. He must be “confused”...
/huge globs of sarcasm
From the article:
“I thank Mark Regnerus. Far from being bullshit, his work is affirming to me, because it acknowledges what the gay activist movement has sought laboriously to erase, or at least ignore. Whether homosexuality is chosen or inbred, whether gay marriage gets legalized or not, being strange is hard; it takes a mental toll, makes it harder to find friends, interferes with professional growth, and sometimes leads one down a sodden path to self-medication in the form of alcoholism, drugs, gambling, antisocial behavior, and irresponsible sex.”
Like gay mortality data, one rarely sees clear, unbiased stories and data about gay households.
My best evidence is my own observations - of the danger and damage of the “gay lifestyle” and my own observations of children I know “parented” by gay men and women. If you imagine that 2 lesbians raising kids is screwed up, you should see the result of 2 gay men raising kids....
After reading this article, I have no trouble believing that if this gentleman were raised in a home with a father and mother who loved each other, had a normal family life, had decent dates in high school, and grew up a typical boy, he would not be at all confused about his current sexuality, and would be a happily married man with a wife and children.
Just my humble opinion based on what I read.
He wasn’t “born that way.”
Interesting article, thanks.
The author's mother, having *chosen* to live with a "partner", turned the author into an embittered, broken man.
In reading between the lines, it sounds like if she had raised the author as a single parent, the author would have had many of the same issues. But, it's hard to tell, and anyone can "what if" themselves to death.
Bottom line, as a parent, your #1 responsibility is to your child, not to yourself.
I don’t know if I could have handled two Jewish mothers.
Probably would have ended up goth or something...
wait, should we believe him, who lived it, or 'Experts' who do not.
My dad said that an Expert is a 'has been (Ex) drip (pert)' or an expert is someone miles away who tell you what you want to hear!
I hope he recovered!
The raging fang-toothed man-hating feminazis are going to pounce on this.
One of our friends of the family was a former gay stripper who is now a heterosexual and married.
Gays SCORN people like that.
I agree but its not about the kids its about the gay. See one of the biggest contradictions in the LGBT is the B.
Wow, great point. Isn’t it only intellectually honest that the “L” and “G” members of this community be supporting their “B” members and advocate in favor of being married to both a man and a woman at the same time?
I remember watching Patrick Macnee, the actor from the Avengers, on Larry King Live several years ago. He was raised by a lesbian mother and her “partner”, which he mentioned to Larry King. King then said, “And you turned out OK.” Macnee corrected him and replied, “No, I didn’t.” He went on to explain how he became an alcoholic, and had trouble with relationships with women. I think he had been married 3 times at that time. He blamed these things on his confusion about being raised with 2 “mommies”.
My kids’ high school had an ED (Emotionally Disabled?) program for kids who had serious social issues that impacted their learning.
Among it students were the children raised in single sex parental households. Not one of those kids was ‘normal.’ Not one. I always had special feelings for those kids because there was not a thing they could do to alter their homes’ lifestyles.
It would be interesting to see where they are now, what they’ve done with their lives, and what lifestyle(s) they’ve chosen to follow for themselves as adults.
Did this man ever think of how his father must have lived?
His father who lived with a woman who had sex with him as an act she carried on because she had to cover her trail,and not because she enjoyed it.His mother who took advantage of his father and his paycheck, but was never really in love with him.She slept with him and lived with him in a farce of love.She used him.
Does he ever wonder if his mother ever felt punished by having a male child? Did she use him, like she used his father, and raised him because she had to and not love?
How can a woman sleep with a man, profess love for him and go out and perform cunnilingus on the woman she really wants to be with.If she were honest she would have left his father and moved out before he was even conceived.
This man's story will be buried for sure. A boy raised by two lesbo wimmin, that is a design for disaster. If one 'single' mom doesnt work, give him two.
