Aunty, when I want to be around kids I'll stick to those of my sibs.

umm...gays can't have kids by nature...

So I feel this is a fairly dumb question. However, if I ever decided to adopt a kid or to artificially inseminate a woman I fell in love w/ and have a kid, I'd want to be called dad.

I think the point was to support the idea of gays having kids in the future, to fight a tiny bit against those stereotypes.

Well

When the kids are young I want them to call me daddy. But when they get a little older, I want to be called dad. But first I got to come out to my parents, get a career, get a husband and then get a child

It's still fun to look into the future, though, don't you think? I can't wait on being a parent!! ^^

My child will call me "papa" and my husband "pop." Hee hee. ^^

But seriously, I don't want kids. I'm quite happy with being the weird aunt if my siblings have kids.

And all I know for sure
All I know for real
Is knowing doesn't mean so much
When placed against the feeling
The heat inside
When bodies meet
When fingers touch

well, if i ever had kids, which my mom says i have to, (she doesnt know i'm gay though...) well anyway. i think i'd want to be called Ima, which is hebrew for mom. my parter can be called mom, or mama or mommy or whatever she wants.

she's the mistake i would always gladly continue making

i voted mom, although since im british it would be mum but same difference. if my partner really wantedto be mum i could cope with being mam since thats used in the area im moving to anyway.

Right now I strongly believe

Right now I strongly believe that I will not have children. I have no desire to. I know that may disappoint my parents, but I said it enough times to my mother that she gets the point to stop talking about it. Though, on the other hand, in the distant future if my partner were to ever change my mind, I don't think i'd want to be the one giving birth (or there is always adoption). Anyway, I find it too weird for any child to call me mom, etc. So I think I would rather to just be called by my name.
