Well, this is awkward — both my long absence from posting (I got a job!) and what’s going on over in Utah.

Basically, some (heterosexual) Utah parents are grumpy about a book that features a family of two lesbian parents and their adopted children. One parent is quoted as saying it is “not a natural process to have a complete family without a male and female.” I was raised by my single father. Was my upbringing unnatural and incomplete too? Something may not be the best option for you, but that doesn’t give you license to control the lives and dictate the values of others. Live and let live. If you don’t want a gay marriage, don’t have one! If you don’t like what is in this book and your child reads it, then have a conversation (gasp!) with your child about it. Part of parenting is answering tough questions. But don’t worry, there are books to help with that!
