I'd love to see more stories in Mothering about lesbian moms; you'll have to keep us posted!
Partner of 17 yrs to DP, Mommy to 10-yr-old Z , and Lilah Nyx, born 7/24/11 .
Also, I should mention that Mothering is looking to include more same-sex parenting stories in Mothering. We have literally gotten 3 submissions (out of thousands) from lesbian moms in the 6 years I've worked here. So I'd love some more!
My mothering.com blog is www.mothering.com/candacewalsh.
I would say that I would LOVE Mothering and other similar venues to drop the whole "Mama is the primary parent/Daddy is the supportive helper" scenario during infancy/early childhood, and the "Mommy stays home, preferably homeschooling/Daddy works" scenario later on....Yes, it's possible for a child to have two (or more) equally involved parents, to be strongly attached to more than one mother/parent, and to have basic emotional and physical needs, including nursing and feeding, met by more than one person.
I just got this snipey comment on my blog. "Congratulations on your success, what does that have to do with natural parenting?" I had shared a Publisher's Weekly review of my new anthology, Dear John, I Love Jane: Women Write About Leaving Men for Women. I kind of hate the under-the-surface nastiness that just can't wait to jump out sometimes. I did not deign to take the bait, but hello. I'm a natural parent, and I put the book together. End of story. It does have lots of moms in it. But I just didn't feel like I had to make my case to a hostile person. Exhale. ykwim?
