The corona crisis has hit some harder than others. Women, minorities and those at the intersections of multiple discriminations have to navigate the most devastating consequences of new unpredictable health and economic realities. 😷🙋🏾‍♀️🐊 @theguardian published the results of a study on the impact of the pandemic across four generations and found: women in the UK spent twice as much time on homeschooling whilst schools and nurseries were closed. Primary school aged mothers spent 5 hours a day homeschooling and more than three hours daily on developmental activities whilst fathers only spent about 2 hours. 😷🙋🏾‍♀️🐊 'Crocs' in quarantine, was 'croc' in quarantine. I edited it because I realised that as a black, woman and mother there isn't just one croc snapping in the waters after me. What are the crocs in your life? 😷🙋🏾‍♀️🐊 Yesterday was international personal pronouns day. Do the right thing and use correct pronouns.

I'm in love with this image, and wanted to share the joy of it! This is also a great opportunity to talk about language and inclusivity. Many choose to feed their babies the milk their bodies make, and prefer language such as Chest Feeding or Body Feeding to refer to this process and relationship. Many also do not identify as "Mama," regardless of whether the egg came from their ovaries or was nurtured by their uterus. Discovering my clients’ correct language and pronouns is an essential part of my practice, and a conversation I am always here for. . Oh also, Happy International Pronoun Day! I use she/her or they/them, and am a Queer, Jewish, Adoptive Mama who breastfed her baby with donated and induced human milk via an SNS. . How about you? ☺️ . . .

A little reminder: Never forget how special you are. You are unique. All of those differences you’re ashamed of, is what makes you YOU. So embrace your queerness and show people who you are. Don’t let anyone change you unless it’s necessary. : ) ) Ps.

A conversation with the cards that may be as soothing for you as it was for me. ✨✨ As a parent, staying oriented to hope is so extra critical AND deeply challenging. How has it been going for y’all?

Going to be off the socials for the next couple days bc I get to go away BY MYSELF 😱 Will I be able to sleep in or has my internal clock been completely fucked by having a toddler? Cue most comfortable pajama-like vintage trousers and go-to puffy vest. Also, glasses, not because they’re cool (my prescription is -10 ) but because I’m getting Lasik soon 🥳🤓 . . . #nonbinary #nonbinaryartists #nonbinaryfinery #nonbinarypride #nonbinarytrans #nonbinaryfashion #nonbinaryvisibility #nonbinarystyle #genderqueer #genderfluid #masculineenergy #queerhair #queerparenting

I don’t normally post things like this, nor do I expect anything different from the person I’m posting about, but I find myself furious about a certain politician’s homophobic #Strictly comments. In particular it’s the use of catch all ‘families’ who, apparently, don’t want to see a same sex couple dancing. Why would having a child, or indeed, parents, suddenly make you a bigot? Why is the idea of family life so often portrayed as at odds with being LGBTQ? How dare someone, with one comment, effectively dismiss the existence of *my* family, which is both LGBTQ and, you know, an actual family. A family which, as anyone who knows us will attest, loves a little dance, same sex couple and all.

Hi. My name is Crystal and I don't know how to be a parent. I am just one. Anyone else ever feel this way? . I felt called to share this as a reminder that there is no rule book handed to us when we became parents. Raising another human is as hard as RAISING ANOTHER HUMAN BEING. We only had what we saw, experienced, read about and heard about from other people who PRETENDED what their family was like. What they didn't tell us about was generational trauma, the guilt, the shame and the real feelings that comes with being a parent, especially for those who identify as being a mother. So please be kind to your self and do the work to heal ourselves first. It's not easy but it's worth it. Remember that we are human and just like us, no 2 children are the same. The only rule that there is, is to love our children and love ourselves. Shout out to all the parents, step parents or anyone who has taken on the role of caring for another human being. Sending you so much love from one mom who is still healing to all of you. . . #goddessfitology #momguilt #parenting #momshame #generationaltrauma #breakthechain #selflove #momcare #parents #healing #healthyself #momswholift #proudmama #elevatewomen #womenshealth #queerparenting #queermom #momboss #lifelessons #divinefeminine #yougotthis #loveyourself #lifecoachforwomen #wellness #mindfullness #bossmom #womenempowerment #lgbtqfamily #wellnesscoach

🎃 Our pumpkin is ripe! 🎃 I know Snappy doesn't look happy. I think Bethend asked him to smile...and well, he's going through that phase where all his smiles look like grimaces of pain. But look at the size of it. It's an accidental pumpkin, grew because some seeds were in the compost. Only one survived the chickens and it pretty much took over a third of the garden. #Pumpkin #HomeGrown #HomeGrownPumpkin #PumpkinGrowing #Pumkins #QueerLittleFamily #QueerFamily #QueerParents #QueerParenting #LGBTQ #LGBTQFamily #LGBTParents #LGBTQParents #SameSexParents #Blogger #LGBTBlogger #NonBinaryParent #LGBTBlog

When Auggie and I go to the little playgrounds in our neighborhood we sanitize hands a lot and bring wipes to wipe stuff down. He actually enjoys this part because he’s big into cleaning. Some may think this is excessive but there are kids and parents out there who have compromised immune systems like myself so it’s for everyone. Autoimmune diseases don’t get enough publicity because there are no outward symptoms all of the time and western medicine doesn’t even know WTF to do with them. I’ve had a doctor tell me to go to therapy after I had been actively followed for over a year by two separate doctors on the east coast who both confirmed I had Lupus. Just because you can’t see how an autoimmune disease is attacking someone’s healthy cells everyday, doesn’t mean folks aren’t struggling with them, whether it be from chronic pain, migraines from being in the sun for just 10 minutes, tummy problems, skin problems, circulation issues, organ issues. So this is Auggie’s PSA announcement. Wear a mask (he’s working on this. He’s almost 2 ). Sanitize, avoid large groups and don’t expose yourself when it isn’t necessary. Life’s short. Why risk making it shorter. (April and Auggie step down from their PSA soapbox ). #covid_19 #wearamask #toddlersofinstagram #toddlermomlife #lupuswarrior #lupusawareness #ableismisreal #ableism #autoimmunewarrior #autoimmunedisease #toddlermodel #oaklandwarriors #queerparenting

It's OFFICIAL...we are MARRIED!! We are officially wife and wife 👰👰 and have a baby 🤰on the way! So many things to celebrate right now, but the champagne 🍾 will have to wait (for me at least ). Allison and I had a very small ceremony with just our family last Monday July 27th! We cried a bunch, said our own vows, and then cried some more. We are planning on having a bigger reception sometime next year, but it was important to us to be legally married before the birth of our baby. Allison will have to adopt her own child, and being married before the birth makes a difference on whether the courts consider Allison a "second parent" or a "step parent". Since this baby was very much planned by both of us, it didn't feel right to not have the proper protection for Allison's rights. We were already engaged, so the marriage part was already planned, but it would definitely have been nice to be able to plan a little bit more and have all of our friends there to see us get married. Being able to look at Allison as my wife is the greatest feeling I've ever experienced. I never knew life could be this sweet and I am so glad I finally have the chance to feel this. ❤

Today is International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia. We may say the words, but how do we 👉actively👈work against these oppressions? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I spend my days thinking about how we can queer our language, practices, and assumptions about others to disrupt and work against cisnormativity and heteronormativity and build a queer-er future. A lot (a LOT ) can & needs to be said about this (such as tracing the roots of queer oppression to ongoing colonialism & white supremacy ). But, for today, let's begin with the two statements in the post above, which are very different. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The first statement is not a judgement on those who have - or will - parent or treat others in this way. In fact, we need more people who will love and accept others "no matter what" (and we all do our best with the knowledge & information we have at the time ). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But what if we didn't place cisnormative & heteronormative expectations on people - especially babies & kids - in the first place? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What would our world look like if we didn't assume who people will love and how they identify in the first place (and by 'in the first place', I'm talking in utero. A fetus doesn't need that 💩 ). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ What would our world look like if we didn't treat children as cis-het until they come out as LGBTQ, or "until they tell us otherwise"? (And what does not treating kids as cis-het even look like? 🤔 ). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ Gender fluid/creative/engaged parenting is a practice that requires a lot of patience, energy, and navigation of society's bullshit ideas around gender. I don't pretend to have all the answers, but I do know this is where we need to go if we want to create a bright, beautiful queer future (as a starting point, I recommend "Chasing Rainbows: Exploring Gender Fluid Parenting Practices" by Fiona Joy Green & May Friedman ) 🌈 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #queercalgary #idahot #internationaldayagainsthomophobia #lgbtq #genderdiversity #transisbeautiful #gendercreativeparenting #allidentitiesarevalid #queer #queercommunity #queerparenting #rainbowfamily #breakthebinary #genderfreedom #genderfreeparenting

I don’t think queer/non-cishet parents get enough attention. Families come in all shapes and sizes, and love is ALL that matters. My girls don’t care that I’m trans, they care that I’m present, I’m engaged, I’m involved. Our family structure didn’t change when I transitioned... I used to be Daddy, now I’m Mom, and that’s all that changed! ⁣ ⁣ I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: I’m so very lucky to be their mom. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #transgender #transvengers #transfemme #transparenting #queerparenting #queer #trans #lgbt #family

We never really thought we’d have a third. With Elise and Murphee it always felt as though our family was whole, that it was complete in a very real sense. ⁣ ⁣ When I came out to Shannon on deployment in July 2018 or so, having more kids wasn’t really the focus of our conversations. But, when I came home in December, we decided to we’d let the universe decide if we had another before I started HRT. Having our two girls already felt so right, but we also felt that a third would fit right in with our growing, evolving, loving family. ⁣ Fast forward to April, following our amazing family trip to Maui, and this little guy becomes part of our lives. We were over the moon immediately, excited to bring another little soul into our arms. I started HRT in May 2019, just after getting the news that we’d have another little one joining us. ⁣ ⁣ Rowan came into the world in a flash, so fast we couldn’t even leave the house. We delivered him together in the master bathroom of our home in Kailua. From the moment he was born he’s been a happy, bright-eyed, smiling baby. Both of us felt, as we had with our daughters, that we had known him our entire lives already. ⁣ ⁣ Here we are 9 months later, somehow. This little boy is learning to walk already, he’s just as smiley and bright-eyed as ever, and every day we wonder who he looks more like. He’s a perfect mix of both his moms, and his own person as well. His sisters adore him. ⁣ ⁣ As a trans parent, the interesting thing about Rowan is that he’ll always know me as Mom. Elise and Murphee chose to call me “Mom”, and Shannon “Mommy”, and accepted my transition with open arms, but Rowan will have no memory of me “before”. When I caught him that night in November, I was already Corinne. ⁣ I don’t think this necessarily changes the nature of our relationship in any sense. The girls accept me wholeheartedly! However, Rowan gave me the chance to experience motherhood fully. Shannon told me a few months ago that she started truly seeing me as a woman when we met Rowan. I wouldn’t trade this experience for anything. ⁣ #transgender #transvengers #transparenting #queerparenting #lovemakesafamily #loveislove #queerfamily #motherhood
