Daddy Dickie may not want to talk about Mary Cheney‘s controversial pregnancy, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have something to say on the matter.
Speaking on a panel for Glamour Magazine (yeah, we were kind of surprised, too), 37-year Mary broke it all down:
When Heather [Poe, her girlfriend] and I decided to have a baby, I knew it wasn’t going to be the most popular decision. This is a baby. This is a blessing from God. It is not a political statement. It is not a prop to be used in a debate, on either side of a political issue. It is my child.
As for James Dobson‘s equally contentious article in Time Magazine in which Dobson blasted Cheney’s dykey decision, insisting that children are better off with a man and a woman, Mary says she’s never really cared what he thinks, adding,
Every piece of remotely responsible research that has been done in the last 20 years has shown there is no difference between children raised by same-sex parents and children raised by opposite-sex parents; what matters is being raised in a stable, loving environment.
And if there’s anyone who’s stable and loving, it’s Mary Cheney. As for the rest of her family…well, we suppose Mama Lynn’s pretty chill. We don’t advise she allow Daddy Dickie too much alone time. He may not be able to resist the urge to sap the child’s life force.
