OMG, I had no idea there was a word for that... I suppose I should have looked. :LOL I just tell people that I'm much more worried about what's between their ears than between their legs; I guess that makes me a sapiosexual, too.

[/FONT]Hi! Lesbian mom here! My wonderful DP and I have a 6 month old daughter... We're also quite fearful that she might be a girly-girl, something that neither of us are. But, if she is... I'm sure we'll learn all about it. I'm the biological mom, and the final adoption hearing (for my partner to adopt her) is at the end of this month! Hoping to have more-- its so wonderful to be starting a family!

Wow - I've been sapiosexual for years, and didn't even know it!!! I'm also a bi Mom of 3, single now, lean more towards women, and a hippie, nerd, tattooed, pacifist, earth-mother type. On the subjct of lace & ribbons, I haven't had to deal with that yet (but I'm looking to adopt, so it still could happen), but elder son (23 YO) is gung-ho in the Army, and seriously into all that culture of macho. On one level, I am proud of him, because he is doing what he feels is right, but I still have moments when I wonder how he could really have sprung from my loins. But I love him to pieces, and we do have alot of fun teasing each other about our huge differences.

Lesbian identified bisexual mama here! I have a ten month old girl. I am co-parenting with a fag.

Edited to add: I would like to say I am sapiosexual, but unfortunately I am not always attracted to intelligence.

Hey there! I'm a queer expectant mama too! I'm with in a relationship with my boyfriend right now, but I have decided that boys aren't where it's at for me, so I am going to split up with him pretty soon. I haven't told him this yet, however.

My 3 year old told me that "I need a girlfriend," which cracked me up.

From the mouth's of babes...

I'm saphiosexual too, and LOVE my new term... I think I will need to use it in a sentence daily until I have educated allllll my friends!

I'm new to this board, I'm 37 my dp (F) is 33, we have a wonderful 9 y/o son (who I think will be a gayboy), and will begin trying for #2 early next year.

Great thread...

Wandering over from the Single Parenting forum...
I'm bi but was monogamously married for 7 years to a man; he knew my "history" (he was even friends with one of my ex-girlfriends), but we never discussed it. I shut the door on my bisexuality during the marriage - I have a box of erotica and "Dykes to Watch Out For" books that has been sealed with packing tape since 1997! Now I've left the marriage and I want to open that door again.

One problem: I don't know how to put out that "woman-oriented" vibe when meeting new people, especially when my daughter is with me! I feel like I'm still performing this classic "breeder" role: feminist femme mother of small child going through icky divorce, suffering psychic pain and practical hassles from her soon-to-be-ex.

I have some great lesbian, bi, and gay friends, but they know me as a queer-friendly straight girl - I'm not sure how to "amend" my identity to them either.

Now I wish I'd done the work of nurturing a bi/queer identity all along. Would be curious to hear more about that... I'll be lurking!

Hi there, bi-mama partnered with a bi-papa, we've got 2 boys together. Both interested in poly. I'm really shy with women, though! (My bi daughter, who is out on her own now, says she's the same!)

Hi There,
Newly Stumbled across this board and already a big time lurker! I used to hang/post on the Mamatron boards a long time ago, and miss the interaction with all kinds of Mama's We are a mama/mami, 1 DD family. We are also very involved in our GLBT Synagogue ( we met there, were married there in 2000, and had our daughter's Brit Bat there). We are also vegetarians, and into other intelectual and crunchy granola persuits.

Hi all. I'm new to this board. I'm a lesbian, married to my wife for 5 1/2 years and together for 8 yrs. We had our first TTC last month, tested negative, about to try #2 next week. Wish us luck. No bio kids yet, but the most adorable niece (2 1/2) and newphew (almost 1). We can't wait to be moms ourselves.

I miss Mamatron, too! I was never clear what happened there... just tried to log in one day after being offline for a while, and whoops! it was gone. Nice to encounter another "alumna"

Wow, great to meet all you queer mamas!

I hear you, BabySlinger, about not feeling 'out' or identifiable anymore! I have been used to seeming pretty queer, as I either looked queer, hung out in queer places, or was seen about town with lovely butch women. Now I get perceived as straight, and it's downright weird... I was walking down Church St (the gay street) in Toronto this summer with my babe on my back, and this lovely fag started to give me a Pride dance flyer, then said "sorry" and took it back! I said "hey! I want that!" and took it anyway, but the sad thing was of course I wasn't going to any Pride raves with a six month old babe to nurse!

This image is almost enough to make me want another baby, just so I could nurse at Pride events: "Lesbian and Bi lactivists unite!"

(Something tells me that particular bandwagon would be more like a Volkswagen.)

Since posting last week I've done some local checking around and discovered that the nearby LGBT community center has a whole program for queer families - they have holiday parties, gatherings, special events, and workshops. I'm feeling motivated to take DD to something this season!

Yeah, it was really a bummer. They shut down the board and at the time there was a discussion of it coming back up as a subscriber's board, but it basically just dissapeared. I really miss it, but i'm glad to have found this one since Mamatron didn't have any kind of local "tribe" thing and I'm hoping to actually meet some other kidlets for Shira to play with who's families are in to some of the same things we are. I'm still looking for a Veg thread on this and can't seem to find one though.
