Syndicated sex columnist; author of The Kid: (What Happened After My Boyfriend and I Decided to Go Get Pregnant) An Adoption Story (Plume 2000)

Its me, my boyfriend, and our son who is three — so we show him videos about how he doesn t have to put down the toilet seat, ever. He likes Bear in the Big Blue House and Thomas the Tank Engine. Hes a butch little boy. It's the curse of gay parents. The lesbian couple gets the little girl who wants to be a princess and wear makeup and the moms who've never worn makeup suddenly have to deal. When I was his age, I wanted to be a princess and wear makeup and he wants to watch Thomas the Tank Engine. We're hoping he goes right from Thomas to Stephen Sondheim, skipping over Disney entirely.
