Whereas some kids are lucky enough to have a gay dad, some are super lucky and have a lesbian mom. One who probably built the house they live in with her two bare hands. One who never met a plaid shirt or a Bieber cut she didn’t like. One who could name that tune in three notes or less, as long as that song is by Melissa Etheridge or Joni Mitchell. So this Father’s Day, show the mannish woman in your life just how much she means to you with this helpful gift guide.
The Kids Are All Right on DVD
Professional weepers Annette Bening and Julianne Moore bring their A-crying-game to this witty and ultimately tender portrait of a lesbian couple dealing with the sudden reappearnce of their children’s birth father.
Though you might not know the difference between an Allen Wrench and a Phillips Head — nor should you — your lezzy mom does. Tell mom how much you still need her by showing her how completely useless you are when it comes to real work.
The Well of Loneliness by Radclyffe Hall
Why not put lesbian mom in a state of crushing depression with this sapphic classic about love and loss? Sure it’s a downer, but it will no doubt bring back fond memories of your mom’s college years and that one time she slept with a man, thus resulting in your accidental conception. Thanks Radclyffe!
Every dad gets a tie on Father’s Day and every woman looks good in a suit. Give lesbian mom a not so subtle hint to put away the Birkenstocks and pull out the Savile Row.
Someday by Justin Bieber
Give lez mom a whiff of the Bieber Fever with the pint-sized popstar’s first perfume. It may be a little too girly for her more Stetson and Old Spice aesthetic, but given a chance she might find inspiration for her new ‘do thanks to the scent’s accompanying commercial.
