This marine got a tattoo to pay tribute to his four gay moms
A straight marine has paid tribute to his four gay mothers with a tattoo on his forearm.
The seaman based in Florida posted on Reddit, with a huge amount of people appreciating the twist on the classic ink.
Explaining his situation, he said his birth mom and her first wife divorced when he was around five years old.
His mother got married again, and so did her first wife, and all four women are still big maternal figures in his life.
‘My childhood was awesome. My moms cared for me and did the best they could to bring me up normally despite not having a dad,’ he said.
‘I was always protective of my mom, still am, and I’ll be damned if anyone insults my parents and I just sit by and let it happen.’
He continued: ‘My parents always made me feel like I was unique and stuck out no matter where I was. Don’t get me wrong it wasn’t perfect. Just like anyone else I love my parents but there was an issue every now and again.
‘I’m grateful everyday for the awesome moms I have and couldn’t imagine it differently. Don’t be afraid to have kids just because you’re gay. Just be the best parent you can and don’t let your sexuality be the whole make up of who he is. You’re just a parent and they are your child.’
But what do his moms think of his tattoo?
‘My moms like it,’ he said, ‘But they are worried that it’s on my forearm.’
