One Million Moms slammed Parents magazine for featuring gay fathers on the cover, starting a petition against it.


Parents magazine has featured a same-sex male couple, the first in its history, on the cover of the February 2019 issue.

Conservative activist group, One Million Moms, launched a petition campaign against the magazine, which to date has just over 10,000 signatures.


"Mothers and fathers are seeing more and more similar examples of children being indoctrinated to perceive same-sex couples as normal, especially in the media."

On the cover, fitness mogul Shaun Thompson, his husband Scott Blokker, and their one-year-old twins Silas and Sander are seen plainly dressed and grinning.



It’s a totally inoffensive photo, however, that’s not how One Million Moms see it. The group's statement reads:

"Parents is using its magazine as a platform to promote the pro-homosexual lifestyle. Even if families do not personally subscribe to the publication, they should be warned that it could be displayed in waiting rooms of dentist and doctor offices, where children could easily be subjected to the glorification of same-sex parents."


One Million Moms who has a long history of censuring any LGBTQ-inclusive media, saying:

"Mothers and fathers are seeing more and more similar examples of children being indoctrinated to perceive same-sex couples as normal, especially in the media. Likewise, the magazine’s website, Parents.com, and their other social media pages also push pro-homosexual content," the group added.



In the magazine, Thompson and Blokker opened up about how their relationship and lives have changed in their first year as parents.

“It was terrible,” said Thompson. “We got into more fights than we’d ever had in our entire relationship.”

Blokker added: “I even questioned whether we’d ruined our marriage by having kids, but it wasn’t the kids. It was the not sleeping!”

Having their kids in the first place was difficult. According to the couple, they had 12 attempts, six egg donors, five surrogates, two doctors, and one miscarriage.
