  • I don't think there is anything wrong with being a lesbian mom. If you are asking is it okay for a lesbian to be a parent then sure they can be parents. I don't think they will be better or worse then a heterosexual mom. I think moms and moms, we all make mistakes and we all love our children. Besides there are a lot of heterosexual moms out there that are not the greatest moms, just there are ones that are great. I would think that you will find the same thing with lesbian moms. Some will be great and some will not.

  • I think it's better than being a single mom. It takes two people (at least) to raise a child, I don't think it matters if they're both female (or both male).

  • It is absolutely ok to be a lesbian mom. Red or yellow, brown or white, gay or not, they are human beings just like the rest of us. More power to them :)

  • What is wrong with it? You sexuality has nothing to do with you ability to raise your child.

  • Sexuality has nothing to do with how good of a parent one makes. Of course there is NOTHING wrong with being a lesbian and Mom.

  • There's nothing wrong with it, lesbians are still women! I have friends who are raising a child in a lesbian couple and I have to say the only problem they've encountered is their child being teased mercilessly at school.

  • Sexuality isnt an issue , it may not be ideal to society but who are we to judge?

  • We have exactly one lesbian couple at our school and I think they are great moms. I think though going in someone needs to be prepared for gossip, stares etc. I live in a small southern town and this couple is pretty nice, and they make a decent living. One is a sahm and the other is a PA, they adopted a down syndrome little boy. I think they did a great thing, but people still look down on them here and it isnt easy for them.
