Hallmark Introduces Mother’s Day Cards For Kids With Gay Moms


Because family is family, and love is love, Hallmark has introduced Mother’s Day cards for kids lucky enough to have two mommies.

“Moms are second to none,” reads one of the cards, with the inside adding, “How does anyone ever get by with just one?”

According to Today:

Hallmark Cards Inc. spokeswoman Kristi Ernsting said the company is offering two cards with same-sex sentiments this year: “One card ‘for two moms’ and one card ‘for my partner.’” They follow Hallmark’s new same-sex Valentine’s Day cards introduced this year, which Ernsting said “were well received.”

With Father’s Day around the corner, expect some adorably rhymey cards for the gay dads as well. A spokesman from the Greeting Card Association tells Today that we’ll soon be seeing more “same-sex cards” in the future, thanks especially to last year’s landmark Supreme Court rulings.

Waiting for the inevitable conservative backlash in 5…4…3…2…
