Having recently written the book ON BEING A GAY PARENT, I find this BBC News report fascinating: that the Christian Congress for Traditional Values believes that we who are LGBT are out to destroy the family. (Click here for more). This Congress realizes that there is a chance that a "modern family was increasingly less likely to include a married man, woman and their children."
Whose image or concept of this family as being "married man, woman and their children" is the modern family of today? Was this ever the only way of being a family? Being a family=one married man + one married woman (though the ad doesn't include a married woman) + children is, itself, the magical elixir of being a family? After all, both Oxford and Webster dictionaries have eleven definitions of the word "family."
We who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, or those who are transgender, along with our straight brothers and sisters, have a choice to be any kind of family we want to be, because there is no "one size fits all" kind of family.
Or is there going to be a Constitutional amendment defining a family?
