  • And missbreezy. my sister and her wife have 3 kids and are undergoing IVF for #4. Their oldest is in kindergarten and their middle child is in preschool. Maybe it's where we live but they have never gotten any static from anyone about their family. They're just another set of parents at school functions. And (gasp!) their children are baptised inthe catholic church we grew up going to and they go to church almost every Sunday. Yes, they're totally out at church. It's just not an issue.

  • < sarcasm > Gee, who would have thought when they're all doomed for hell anyway. @@. They're PARENTS - of course they're just as good as straight parents. < / sarcasm >

  • Wow so two good people no matter the sex make good parents together? You know this is going to shock a few people right? Isn't that sad.

  • I don't think they would be bad to their children, but if 2 men have a child together who breastfeeds? (Joking)

  • i liked what juicy mom who said that they wouldn't be? just cause it's a sin doesn't mean that sinners are bad parents cause if that was the case we'd all be bad parents.

  • All I can say is WHY are we paying for people to do studies like this! It doesn't take a study to figure this out!

  • JuicyMom

    Did you know that there are hormones that a man can take if he really wanted to breastfeed? They have breast tissue (which is actually just altered sweat glands, weird!), it just doesn't mature like it does in women... Men can and do get breast cancer.

  • Of course they are good parents. My hubby's mom spent 15 years with a woman before her "spouse" died, and my man is the best in the world in my eyes.
