A study conducted by UCLA’s Williams Institute asked 17-year-olds who had been raised by lesbian parents to talk about their mothers. Here are some of the things they had to say.
“They teach me to be accepting of all people on this earth, no matter what differences they may have. They also teach me good work ethics for both school and out in the real world.”
“[My mothers] have wonderful characters and a strong sense of values that I try to emulate.”
“[My mothers] try to instill in me proper morals and they teach me to make the most of my life.”
“My moms have taught me everything from acceptance, to how to control anger, to love.”
