My Foreign Mom. "Every morning when the bus would come to pick us up while it was still dark out, I could see her slight backlit frame outlined in our blinds as she watched us drive away. A senior on the bus once asked if my mom knew that we could all totally see her. I told that kid to go fuck himself and to quit looking at my mom. To this day, I still can’t watch her watch us leave."

Your Holiday Mom: "This season, supportive moms have gathered to send a holiday message to all LGBTQ children, teens and young adults who are without family support and who would like a 'stand-in Holiday Mom'–or 40! Knowing that not every mother is ready to accept her own LGBTQ child exactly as-is (as hard as this is for us to imagine), we moms have written to extend our love beyond that of our own family."

Fergie Olver was a well-known Canadian sportscaster, who used to hang with the likes of Wayne Gretzky
. When not working on Toronto Blue Jays broadcasts, he co-hosted the 80s game show Just Like Mom
with his wife, a former Miss Canada. Like fellow game show host Richard Dawson
, Olver had a penchant for kissing his contestants on the lips. One problem: his contestants were prepubescent girls. The results are more than a little unsettling

"I wanted to be a mother who bakes.
But then I found out it's illegal." While I can understand being afraid of a Hepatitis or E. Coli outbreak, I can't help but think this is simply another example of a school district of applying really stupid rules to a situation.
