Imagine coming across an article headlined “Who’s Your Mommy? Don’t Ask a DNA Test.” As you read it, it slowly dawns on you that the writer is suggesting decoupling the concept of motherhood from a woman’s biological relationship to her child. After all, the article explains, plenty of kids have adoptive mothers, not biological ones; plenty have stepmothers too. Some women go to prison or lose their parental rights due to drug or child abuse and often their kids go to foster parents. And historically, countless mothers died, either in childbirth or long before their kids reached maturity. So someone else had to mother them.
The point being that, since there are so many different ways in which children can come to be raised by women who have no biological connection to them, surely we should ignore that connection altogether.
