18 People Reveal Their Favorite Part Of Having Same-Sex Parents.

Now matter how well-behaved you were as a kid, there had to have been a time where you fought with your parents. We all did it. But we could all spend a bit more time appreciating our parents, even if they sometimes drive us crazy.

Here are twenty people sharing their favorite things about having same-sex parents. Check out more from the source at the end of this article!

Many thanks to Reddit user mrRwild for posing this question.

1/18. You get to hear twice the number of dad jokes.


2/18. Trolling them by leaving a single "World's Greatest Dad" coffee mug on the table with a bow on it.


3/18. When my mom(s) and I go out in public, we scope out women together.

It's like having bros, but they feed me and love me and I was birthed from one of them.


4/18. The stereotype about gays being good at cooking is 100% true for my dads. We eat like royalty constantly, even now that my dad is diabetic. Thanksgiving is always amazing, friends beg to come to our house.


5/18. I have two moms - I get along really well with girls, and find it easy to get to know them.

On the other hand, guys intimidate me. And I'm male.

6/18. You f*cked my mom? Jokes on you I have two dads.


7/18. My parents divorced when I was 12 when my mom came out saying she was in a relationship with another woman. I ended up living with my mom and her girlfriend until I was 17 and moved out on my own.

At first being really immature and in an attempt to make sense of it I fell in with kind of a religious crowd and was convinced my mom was seduced by the devil.

After I grew up a bit and lived on my own and saw more of life I realized that my mom was probably gay her entire life but because of her upbringing suppressed it and tried to lead a 'normal' life. I've also realized that my mom's partner is not the incarnation of evil and is in fact a very great person who, among other things, makes my mom really happy.

I'm an atheist now and feel pretty ashamed when I think back to the way I felt when I was a teenager and I'm pretty glad I never expressed my thoughts on it to them. It will always be my little secret.

My mom is retired now and is living happily with her partner of 16 years. My dad is doing great, has a girlfriend and him and I are very close. My kids call my mom grandma and her partner grandma (name).

The strangest part about my coming around to respecting and now being strongly for LGBT rights is kind of a philosophical problem. In a way I owe my existence to attitudes of 50 years ago. If LGBTs had always been accepted in the way we are moving towards it is guaranteed certain that my brother and I would not exist.

In the end, love is love. The whole experience led me to understand that love comes regardless of the labels society puts on relationships and I'm proud my kids will grow up thinking absolutely nothing strange about the idea of same-sex relationships and only identifying it for what it is, love.


8/18. Best part, I get double the mother sympathy. Bad day? I can call both of them and have them shower me with love and compliments. There is nothing better for the soul than a mom telling you how awesome you are when you've heard the opposite for eight hours from your boss.

Worst part is double the smothering.


9/18. It's pretty normal, although there is a 100% chance that I wasn't an accident, so if people are paying me out about having gay parents that shuts them up pretty quick.

And when people try and pay me out and call me gay (I'm straight as an arrow) I would tell them the gay gene skips a generation, and then ask them if there parents were gay, that normally has them on there feet for a while.

Also, if a mate and I are payed out for doing something a little feminine, I can just reply with "I was raised by the gays, I don't know what this guys problem is though."

10/18. We all share clothes.

11/18. I myself don't have same-sex parents, but my ex-girlfriend has two moms and I have several friends that have same-sex parents. This is actually a question I regularly ask because I'm curious and gay myself.

One friend with two dads said: "My dads can beat up your dad."

Ex-girlfriend said: "When you need to dress up, one mom can do your hair and the other can do your makeup at the same time."

Another friend with two dads: "Boys think twice before messing with me. If one overprotective dad is scary to face, try two at once!"

Friend with two moms: "You don't have to ask 'where's mom' because there's always one around."


12/18. The best thing for me is that they do what they are good at as opposed to doing "Mum things" and "Dad things" or whatever the gender roles for parents are. A lot of straight couples could learn from this.


13/18. I don't have same sex parents, but my friend does and in general, they seem to be more rational, liberal, understanding, and laid back. My parents are Christian helicopter parents. I really want to come out as an atheist to them but not sure.


14/18. I'm not, but my daughter lives with her two moms.

No lack of menstrual supplies, and someone to understand strange cramping issues. They can share some clothes. And she seems to have skipped most of the real teenage angst about sexuality.


15/18. Not me, but my roommate in college had four moms. The daughter of a lesbian couple who divorced and remarried other women. So when people would say "yo momma!" she'd respond with, "Which one?"

Your dad beat up my dad? It's cool. I have a back up dad.


16/18. I don't have same sex parents. But my dad does. His favorite quote is to say "I'm half lesbian on my mother's side."

17/18. People can never say i was an accident and i like to pretend i can pick what nationality i am "half of" because i have no chance of knowing who my 'father' is. On the other hand i'm a guy with 2 mums and 2 sisters. I feel pretty outnumbered most of the time. Funnily enough its a good conversation piece, people always seem interested.


18/18. The best thing about being raised by same-sex parents was that I didn't feel any different from kids raised by opposite-sex parents. My moms raised me exactly the same as any other parents would. No, I didn't turn out gay. No, I don't miss having a dad. I'm your average straight male that turned out no different than anyone else raised by loving, accepting, open-minded parents.

In fact, I'd wager to say that I ended up being more well-rounded than many others I grew up with.

Whoops. That snip was just a hair too far....

Your first bad haircut probably made you want to die a little when you looked in the mirror. Imagine how the person cutting your hair must have felt. Although, maybe they didn't care at all, as evidenced by the bs excuse they gave you when you finished in the barber chair.
