Ok,i have no ACTUAL problem, i just mainly want to know that someone out there knows what i'm talking about and that all of this is not in my head! about 7 years ago, my parents were seperated and my mom moved in with another woman. then about 4 years ago it hit me that my mom was gay. i personally have no problem with it, i love my mom with everything i have, and my other mom is pretty cool too. the problem comes in when other people find out. now, i live in a very religious part of the south, where if you aren't the "norm" then you are outcast. fine with me... but recently i overheard several people in one of my classes say that they believe i'm (quote) "an anti-straight (profanity) just trying to convert people for that weird gay religion" No Joke!!! so maybe it's just me, but i didn't think that having a gay mom made you all of that! because my mother brought me up with the abilty to think outside the box doesn't mean that i'm converting people!!! personally i would never change either of my mommys, they are both the sweetest women i have ever known and it is a blessing from God that i am able to live and grow with them in my lives. (deep breath) so in conclusion... i just want to know that someone else out there sees what i'm saying. because i have 2 mommies doesn't mean that i'm different, it means i have more chances to see other worlds.

I live in the South too, so I can understand the thing about people being more conservative. Anyways, a girl used to ride my bus awhile back, and I overheard her talking to some guys. She said she lived with her two moms. But when people would come over, they would tell her "how normal" her house looked. She asked what did they think her house would look like? Did they think there would be dildos everywhere or something. I think the thing is that some people don't get is that a family is a family whether there's a two moms, two dads, or one of each. And it's just that GLBT stuff is not something they're used to, so they label it as "weird." Well I hope that made some sense.
