  2. Reblog if you are a second generation (or more) queer and/or trans person of color.

    I’d love to meet other folks raised by queer and/or trans parents of color.

  4. Why Gay Parents May Be the Best Parents

    skittlespride:

    Well take a look at this :)

    http://news.yahoo.com/why-gay-parents-may-best-parents-131902676.html

    Yeah yeah! Having lesbian moms fucked me up just like any set of parents could have;) Queer parents and queer kids, representing! Familias de Joteria presente! 

    Also this article is really well written/researched! 

     

  5. there should be a ‘things white people say to mixed people video.

    laborreguitina:

    “so what are you?”

    “why is your skin so light if you’re a quarter _____ and a quarter _______”

    “so your mom is ______ and your dad is ____? whaaat?”

    “that’s so conFUSING!!?!”

    if you really wanna make it good, add in mixed ADOPTED folks. 

    “wait what do you mean you don’t have a dad? ohhhh i’m SO sorry”

    “where are your parents from? oh you’ve never met your biological parents”

    blah. 

    I was just thinking about all the videos like these needed—mixed, adopted, mexican, fair, queer…

    I really want one for queer spawn/kids of queers. 

    Things heternormative/nosey people say to queer spawn:

    • So wait, you have two what?
    • So like did you moms used to bone men before each other?
    • How were you made?
    • Do you know your dad?
    • Were you a back seat baby?
    • Which one of your moms is like your dad?
    • Are you a lesbian?—like doesn’t it rub off on you?
    • So was there a turkey baster involved?
    • Did you ever want a dad?
    • What if you sleep with your sibling, like what if your dad has other kids?
    • Who taught your brother manly stuff?
    • So your brother is only half related so he isn’t your real brother right?
    • So were you adopted then?
    • I know someone who has two dads—do you know them?
    • So how did it go?/How was it? (whole childhood).
    • Which one is your “real” mom—like who is actually your mom?
    • What do you mean your mom is genderqueer like it’s your mom right, a girl! 
    • DId you grow up on a commune?
    • That explains everything!

    And so so so many more. 

     

  6. I resisted saying anything about the Zach Wahls/”Two Lesbians Raised A Baby And This Is What They Got” video shared so widely. But this article says everything I was feeling.

    As a queer spawn, the external public pressure to be normal and not be “influenced” by my queer parents was immense. As a 2nd gener, as someone who experienced abuse from a family member, as a poor and multiracial family, etc, I always felt like I failed at being a queer spawn kid, until the last few years that is. Queer families are dynamic and do radically change the children involved, as do all parents and all families, and I am grateful for my queer family everyday—thank god they influenced me!

    The lies I told to protect the image of inconsequential queerness/queer families were heavy on me growing up, with pressure from both right and left political dialogues. I get what this video is trying to do but instead of saying “I survived unscathed” how about queerspawns start saying “I excelled because I was raised queerly.” Sigh, I don’t want this for any other queer spawn. Please just read this. 

     
  7. I should have put this with my last post, but see how cute my mom and my mom’s fiance are?! 

    The wedding invite does them so much justice:)

  9. Where are all the Queer Spawn at? 

    For that matter what about 2nd geners? Or kids of trans? Or POC queer spawn?

    *crickets*

    Seriously, we’re are you all hiding? Where’s my family on here?

     
  10. Gay Parents Bashed (by ABCNews)

    I was raised by lesbians and this was my childhood. We were asked to leave once in Colorado. 

    I bawled my eyes out when she reads the letter.
