|Best place to raise a lesbian family?|
I am in a lesbian relationship and we are thinking about getting out of the south and moving somewhere that is more tollerant to lesbians and we are planning on raising my daughter together. What is the state with the most parental rights for the other partner. We would eventually like to get married and have more guys together. I am the one who will be carrying the babies its already been decided. But where is the best place to raise a family. i know its not in the south.
|The places that both allow second-parent adoption by same sex couples statewide and legally recognize same sex couples are California, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Vermont.|
Northampton, Massachusetts, nicknamed Lesbianville U.S.A., is purported to be the most lesbian-friendly town in the United States.
|How are the family roles distributed in gay or lesbian families?|
Socialization is the process people adopt to the environment and people who are around them. They also recognize gender roles in that stage. When people form a family, they act according to their family role. For intsance, a mother cooks and a father fixes the car.
How about gay or lesbian couples?
|In gay and lesbian households, chores are usually distributed according to who does them better, or who is willing to do them, or who has time to do them. For example, my late partner and I both loved to cook, so we would take turns at it, or cook dinner together. She usually mowed the lawn, but sometimes I would do it. We both worked in the garden. I'd usually do the laundry, but she would fold it and put it away. We'd split up the housecleaning as well. And so on. |
But even in heterosexual households, those strict gender roles you describe don't always apply. My brother does most of the cooking in his house (he's a professional chef) and most of the guycare for their 3 year old son (my sister-in-law is an attorney who works long hours). My sister-in-law handles the family finances and does most of the cleaning. Real life is usually way more complex than in your social studies textbook........
|In a gay/lesbian family what does your guyren call the spouse that is not their birth parent?|
My cousins are lesbians and plan to get married. They want a guy and they plan to have my cousin be pregnant and all but we where wondering what the baby would call my cousin's wife! My cousin is Italian and her wife is Greek just to let you all know.
|I have two mothers and I just call my birth mother Mom and my mom's partner Mama Kate. :) I know another family where the daughter calls one mom, Mom and the other, Mama.|

|Lesbian Family friendly partof austin?|
I am a lesbian and my partner and I plan on moving to austin. We plan on starting a family down there so we wanted to know what part of austin (neighborhood or zipcode) is accepting of lesbian families. We just want a diverse accepting area..Does anyone know any that we should look for houses or apartments.
|I'd have to say the richer more eclectic areas are accepting like Westlake Hills, downtown Austin artsy area close to the "1"...just my thoughts and experiences from traveling there a couple of times and frequenting in Miami & West Hollywood|
