From my essay on www.parentsociety.com:
It’s all the rage, recently: lesbian and gay Hollywood personalities
raising babies. Even here on Parent Society, there have been stories
about gay parents: comedian and television host Rosie O’Donnell welcomed
the newest baby born in her large household; Glee and Nip/Tuck
producer Ryan Murphy welcomed a new baby into his family; and music
icon Elton John and his partner David Furnish recently announced the
birth of their second son.
While I admit to looking at my fair share of Us and People magazines,
and listening the fun news on the E channel, I’ve rarely been wooed by
the behaviors, fashions, or habits of those in the music industry,
Hollywood, or Broadway. I choose other people in this world as role
models, people whose life stories make me realize that I am in the
presence of someone who has courage or charity of heart. However, I am
aware that I live in a society in which people’s very lives are modeled
after celebrity stars and starlets … how else can we explain all the
attention given to the Kardashians?
