Need help on how to deal with offensive people at my kids school.

 I am a lesbian and have been with my partner since we were both 15. We have been together for ten years and have 6 kids. My son is 6 and in the first grade. His homework assignment was to bring in a poster with pictures of his family members and to label who they were for family night. He worked so hard on his poster and was excited to take it to school.

When we got to school the teacher asked all the kids to hang their posters up so everyone could see. Another parent commented that my son shouldn't receive full credit for his poster because it has 2 mothers on it instead of a mom and dad. She then told her son not to sit by or play with my son because he carries the gay disease on his clothes. But then she didn't understand why this was rude to say in front of my son or in front of me. Do you find this rude? How would you react if someone said this to you or your child?

Let me just say that I am used to being judged for being who I am and being gay. But I never expected my 6 year old would have to deal with it at school.

This is a public forum and I am free to ask whatever I'd like. I wasn't judging anyone. I asked a harmless question and she responded.


Quoting MamaHasWings:

The thread is not about how OP and her partner have 6 kids. Quite frankly it's very presumptious and rude to ask such a thing in a thread created in a forum specifically about asking for advice/help! If OP felt it was relevant she would have mentioned it in her post, instead of having to answer a barrage of questions that basically attack her family. SMFH.


Quoting Judesmom333:

yes how do two lesbians have a 6 yr old? did they adopt??





Quoting hollydaze1974:

Did you actually ask that? O_o





Quoting Judesmom333:

how do you have a 6 yr old if you and your partner have been together 10 yrs.?

I quoted your reply but was speaking to not only you but everyone who asked or made rude little comments about their family arrangement. It is a public forum and you are free to ask whatever you like but does that make it right or appropriate?

We waited till we owned a home and have lots of savings to have children. That is being responsible. My 21 yo has a job but couldn't afford a child.

Believe this or not: my first instinct would be one of shock & repulsion at the woman, however a spit moment later I would have laughed loud, hard, and wouldn't have been able to stop.

How could someone be so indignant in their own stupidity, it's ludicrous and I would have treated her that way.

So EVERY TIME you see her, laugh at her and her complete life ignorance, because let's face it, she's even lucky she has the smarts to dress and feed herself.
