by Carder With most of these populations, having a sexually transmitted disease from having sex with another man is highly stigmatized. They’d rather not get tested for HIV, syphilis, or whatever. They don’t want it to show up on their records. ~ Professor George W. Rutherford, claiming that homophobia in the South may contribute to […]

by Carder What we have heard from the private Catholic systems is that they are going to be respectful of LGBT people, and we actually don’t doubt that… but here’s the question for us — it’s different if a person goes in with a broken arm. We know they’ll be treated with respect. The question […]
She’s a great role model…She’s been a great godmother to Zachary. She came to bathe him in Las Vegas. She was already dressed to go to the show, and she was sitting there and she bathed him, and she was like dressed like Audrey Hepburn… and she fed him…. We’re all bonkers in this business, […]
We can’t pretend like this doesn’t exist for them — that’s completely selfish. It is our responsibility to do the right thing for our children… We’ve exchanged photos. The mudslinging has ended. And I hope that one day, Ryan and I will be friends. I think we all envision ourselves married and in a relationship. […]

This is the third year I’ve worked with them on their annual Mama’s Day campaign. It’s a campaign that seeks to shift the narrative on motherhood, and specifically bring love and light to the mamas who are more often demonized by our political climate and our media than celebrated.

They came up with such ideas as a “Mandatory Sex Savings Fund,” which would require men to pay $25,000 into an account […]

I published some articles about being the product of gay parenting and received hundreds of e-mails from around the world pleading with me to fight against a growing human-rights crisis caused by the LGBT movement….
[T]hey were children of sperm donors, troubled adoptees, people agonized by the baby-farming in India and elsewhere, gays horrified at what is being done in the name of “gay families,” religious people, atheists, people who know for whatever reason that buying babies and erasing fatherhood or motherhood is not the fruit of love….
