Lesbians Make Better Mamas

I am several years away from even considering having children, and yet, sometimes I find myself thinking that if I do ever have a daughter, I kind of hope she’s a lesbian. Now, bear with me—obviously, I’ll be thrilled with whoever my daughter turns out to be. But if she’s a lesbian, she’ll be much less likely to be pressured into sex when she’s young and she won’t have to worry about getting pregnant before she’s ready. She’ll be much less likely to ever get an STD, and since more than half of rapes are of the “date” variety, that becomes much less of a concern. Not to mention the fact that she won’t have to spend nearly as much time as I do decoding the opposite gender’s mind. And, apparently, she’ll also be a better mom. Yep, the director of the U.K.’s National Academy for Parenting Practitioners said today that his research shows that the children of lesbian couples tend to be better adjusted than those of straight couples. “Lesbians make better parents than a man and a woman,” he says. Why would this be? Easy. Because for a lesbian couple to have a baby, it takes serious planning and action—there are no accidents. Kind of interesting, no? [Telegraph]
