The New Yorker Goes with Two Moms for Mother’s Day Cover

One day The New Yorker publishing a Mother’s Day cover featuring two moms won’t be a thing, but for now, it still is. However, we’re getting there. For example, our first reaction to this cover was “Man, that’s a nice kitchen.”

Chris Ware created the illustration and shared some thoughts on it with the New Yorker’s Culture Blog:

Few people today don’t know—or have in their families—at least one loving couple who are raising children, same-sex or not. And it’s really just the loving part that matters. That same-sex marriage could go from its preliminary draft of ‘diagnosable’ to the final edit of ‘so what?’ must indicate some positive evolution on the part of the larger human consciousness.
