Huffington Post runs story on gay dads and back to school


David Valdes has an interesting column in this morning’s AOL Huffington Post, “Do Ask, I’ll Tell: Gay Parents and Back to School Time”, link here.

The author is in a male couple relationship with a daughter. He does talk about the reaction of other (heterosexual) parents at back-to-school nights. Some of them really wanted to know who was the husband.  One (biological) mom spoke in terms of “getting to be the wife”, as if females were privileged by definition in our society (they are).

I remember that we always registered in August, even back in the 50s.
