My children have two moms, lesbians! Yesterday my fifteen year old daughter and her friend called me into the bedroom, they were giggling; “What should we tell her mom? Not sure how to handle this, ” they queried.
The six year old was playing “Sims” on the computer and trying to make a baby with two women she had coupled.
Oh my why now? The question had not come up before this; the direct question of “how?”
But there was no escaping this, now was the time and what seemed easy was explaining to her how two woman had “made her” – yet what seemed difficult to explain was the fact that The SIMS had failed her, the game did not provide the option of a sperm bank.
So she asked if she could write them a letter on my Blog and I said yes:- These are her words completely with no input from me.
Whoever you are, you cant just make a boy and a girl. You can’t just do that. You can also make a girl and girl. Haven’t you ever heard that? If you have a boss tell them that immediately.
Why wont you put a sperm bank – email us back. Even my sister does this game a lot. I think you should have a girl and girl like real life.
AND my sister’s friend also tried to make twins but she does not know how, could you please email and blog about that.
This is it for today wait for my next Blog soon,
You will notice she has guest blogged a few times under pseudonym Pikachu on my Kids Activist Page - with issues that she feels are important.
The Sims is a strategic life-simulation video game developed by Maxis and published by Electronic Arts. Its development was led by game designer Will Wright, also known for developing SimCity. It is a simulation of the daily activities of one or more virtual persons (“Sims”) in a suburban household near SimCity.
