On how the concept of family should evolve from two heterosexual parents and sons

Standard

“ There is nothing wrong with a heterosexual, two-parent, mono racial family: it’s an age-old arrangement for bringing up children, and it can work beautifully. I raise no objection to it; I grew up in such a household myself. But it is not the only method that can work beautifully. We need to acknowledge that families come in multiple shapes and sizes, that love is not a finite asset, and that care-giving involves more than a genetic imperative ”
