Babies born to same sex couples. I now know 2 adults raised by same sex parents, one is just 18, the other early 20s. Different families, they have never met each other.
One of them I have known since birth, her mums (and bio father) were friends of my parents through high school. Her bio mum thought she was meant to be with a man so in the 70s she was with a man. At 18 she got pregnant so they married later that month. She never really told many people she was pregnant and she lost the baby on her honeymoon. She had feelings for a woman, but tried to ignore them. Then she told her husband she wanted a divorce but was pregnant. She told him she was attracted to women so he left and never looked back. To this day he has not spoken to her or the daughter. So the daughter was raised by 2 mums. They moved to Melbourne and I have only seen her at family gatherings.
The other is the step daughter of one of the centre directors I have spent a lot of time with. Although the kids (now 12 and 18) have spent time with their father, he preferred to be out of the country than be with the kids. He is now on the daughter's fb, but she has 2 accounts so only shares some things with her father.
So that is the back story of them both lol.
The older girl has a gf but has told others that she has crushes on males, not females, but is afraid to explore that option because she has been raised in a way where having a gf is expected. She is worried it will be awkward for her and she doesn't want to use a guy as an experiment, nor does she want to disappoint her parents.
The 18yo has met a guy but is terrified of what her mum will think. Her mum says that straight guys are trouble, so expects her dd to be smart enough to avoid them, but her ds is not gay, he loves looking at boobs and female bums already, but gay men and straight girls are fine so he can date either.
No real point to this, but it only just occured to me that Rainbow Babies feel pressure like any others, and it was just as sad because I believe that people should be free to be with the one they love no matter what.
