Queer families are teaching us there are many ways to be a mother
Rhiannon Lucy Cosslett
Queer families are showing us that being a mother – as with being a father – is this one thing here. Who you have sex with, how you have sex with them is – after that initial fertilisation thing, to be fair – this other thing over here. As with queer people are not showing us some different economics, queer people are not showing us some different rules of gravity. Queer people differ in who they bonk and how. Much to most of life does not differ as a result.
After all, the toddlers of queer mothers will still proudly show off their potty training just like all other toddlers. Toddlers’ turds haven’t changed because mummy rug munches.
