Video: Oprah, Starbucks embrace two-mom families

by Jeremy Hooper

You know who's huge? Oprah. You what what is huge? Starbucks.

These two cultural forces join up to celebrate all kinds of moms, including those who share that same label:

I love how matter of fact the corporate support has become. Even two years ago, this would have been a must-post for someone like me. Today, I debated whether it was even noteworthy.

Ultimately I decided it was, since we still live in an America where many two-mom families still have to fight for even basic protections. But I'm certainly starting to feel what it's like to live in an America where our families are no longer notable simply because of their configuration. That's a nice feeling.
