Ask An Abortion Provider: an article with a refreshingly snarky-yet-earnest tone.

International versions of Sesame Street are designed to address the issues of the kids they’ll be reaching, and the Israeli and Palestinian versions might well have the hardest lines to walk.

A married couple, one egg donor, and two surrogates come up with two kids born five days apart. Aww.

The digital dissemination of images of children. “A recent study published by AVG, an Internet security company, found that 92 percent of American children have an online presence by the time they are 2.” Yikes.

Fake marriage in Shanghai, where gay people shop for opposite-sex partners to please their parents.

A reflection on the generation gap in the gay rights movement. Compare with gay teens interviewing their elders about the experience of coming out in the ’50s.

An old but still adorable political ad features an adorable pair of lesbian grandmothers who have been together 32 years.
