    Congratulations, Wanda !! Ignore these bigots, you’re going to be a great mom. If you’ve followed her career at all, you’ll find that she’s warm and funny, not at all angry.

    Wow, the racist homophobes are going crazy. They assume all black women are angry and all gay couples are terrible parents. The truth is that the racist homophobes are angry, crappy parents whose children can’t achieve anything because they’re so afraid of being judged. Shame on you, I pity your children.

    Hope her kid’s kidneys fail.

    oh. oops.

  • Dimi

    Homophobia is UNCHRISTIAN. If you hate gays, you hate God.

  • gay Marriage ok.. children?

    I think it’s fine for gay people to marry. But not to have children. Men and Women are meant to re create not, woman and woman.

    And i do feel sorry for the children, children are so impressionable, they will grow up in such a different world from other children and children just want to be able to fit in with others…not to mention the torment that they will get in school. I think it’s quiet selfish for same sex couples to have children. If i were gay i wouldn’t even think of it.

  • Ethan

    I love her.
    Great job with the President the other night.
    She is amazing.

  • skatergirl

    @icopyworkinbiology: And what are those levels? Because it makes you uncomfortable? There’s plenty of “hetero” marriages that are “wrong” and “gross”, yet few

    Point-blank, a marriage is a contract between two people defining the parties’ expectations of each other. Generally this has to do with mutual devotion based on love and respect, and for the creation of a family (whether they plan on having children or not).

    Opponents of gay marriage are using the definition of “marriage” to cover up their homophobia and bigotry. They’re just too cowardly to admit it.

    I thought “God” was against hate?

  • Tootie

    This is just wrong on so many levels.
    Seriously people you know it’s wrong. Stop trying to make something disgusting acceptable.

  • skatergirl

    @gay Marriage ok.. children?: There’s a MILLION reasons why children can and do get ridiculed at school. Ugly, fat, awkward, have a weird name… any smart & remotely confident kid won’t let some jerks get the better of him/her based on who or what his/her parents are.

    But realistically, Wanda is a celeb, living in Los Angeles, and can afford to send her children to school with other “industry” people’s kids. They’ll be fine.

  • Uh……….

    @gay Marriage ok.. children?: Marriage okay, children no? Well at least you got one thing right…marriage is okay. But so is children. Clearly you don’t have sex for pleasure. Not to mention there are thousands of children out there who don’t have a home, and many gay/lesbian couples are the ones who save those children from the orphanages. Also, have you ever thought that maybe some of these people aren’t Christian? Maybe they don’t believe in your God. There is nothing that gay marriage does that affects how you live your life. So shut your mouth and move on. I can guarantee you, you probably know someone who is gay or has had a gay experience or thought and you don’t even know it.

    We’re making excuses for something disgusting? We should lock them up? ACCEPT THE REALITY PEOPLE…all you bigots are WRONG. The only thing disgusting here, is your complete and utter lack of respect for people, and your judgmental nature. Don’t worry…you’ll get yours. We should be locking YOU up in the closet b/c our society is definitely NOT benefited from having people like you in it.

    And FYI…I’m straight, female AND Christian! God loves all.

    P.S. I’ve love to know how many all of the religious people have followed every single commandment on those tablets. Guaranteed that some of you have cheated on their partner (or had sex before marriage), stole something, taken the Lord’s name in vain or committed perjury. Guaranteed.

    You people make me sick.

  • nina

    wait wait i’m confused.. almost everyone here commented on how gay marriage is wrong,, so why all this anger towards miss cali????

  • Dread not

    Is she still actually getting gigs on TV, movies, and on the comedy circuit? Wanda Sykes is a nasty little troll, who should scurry back under whatever bridge she crawled out from under, right quick. That bridge has been troll-less for quite some time, I think it was on the news. Billy goats are runnin’ buck wild, back and forth, their little cloven hooves clomp-clompin’ as they go. Somebody stop them damn billy goats! Wanda! Back beneath the bridge! And take your same sex wife and two little turkey basted Orcs with you!

  • raquel

    #11. I grew up without a Daddy and I did just fine. Having a Daddy doesn’t mean your life is going to be a good life, as some fathers should NEVER have been fathers.

    #66. And what bridge do you live under?

    CONGRATS to Wanda and her partner!!

  • Hermagoras

    Congratulations to the happy couple!

    I wish Wanda were actually funny.

  • Wendel

    “Wanda Sykes: Mom Of Twins!”

    No, actually, Wanda Sykes is the mom of no one.
    She is legally married to the mother of twines, but is no more biologically related to them than I am. She can call her self a mom, and for now pretend it is true, but this is a title she will have to earn with the children. A hard fact her ilk to comprehend I know, but a fact none the less.

    Alex is the mother, Wanda just lives there.

  • mw


    are you saying that heterosexual adoptive parents just live there? or what about the mother of a child from a surrogate? quite often it’s the man’s sperm and the surrogate’s egg… so is she not a mother now?

    this biggotry makes me sad and makes me question the decency of people.

  • Shay

    Cat Cora took twisted to a new level. Pervs trying to make their twisted lifes appear and sound NORMAL. Even a five yeal old knows its not Normal.

  • Kiki

    It doesn’t matter that anyone is gay but why be secretive about the person she has supposedly married as it’s the other woman who has given birth to these twins not Wanda Sykes.

  • Shannon

    Congratulations to Wanda and Alex. Love the babies’ names!

  • Jennifer

    the way I see it is two women who want children together have to go thru alot more than just sex to get them….they actually WANT the children… good for them! In this day when any whore and bastard can screw and make a baby that isnt loved or cared for, it takes two women to make children that are wanted. crazy.
    Im not for gay marriage but it doesnt effect me so whatever…

  • T.J.

    Judging, isn’t a good value, and if you believe in God, I believe that’s who it is reserved for. That people try and live a good life is all that matters. People who go around wishing ill on other people are the ones in need of help, unfortunately that help has to begin with realizing when to stop YOURSELF from being hateful and putting more ugliness in the world.

    There is this epidemic in the U.S. of people running their mouths to get attention, frequently negative, funny that the people being hurtful and mean all seem to have “normal parents”: dysfunctional, co-dependent, and as angry as their spawn. You wouldn’t have time to tear into other people if you were getting up and taking care of your own lives.
    A final bit… you throw God and right and wrong around but I don’t think you really understand what love means, or kindness, forgiveness but especially tolerance.

  • Dread not

    2 Raquel #66. And what bridge do you live under?

    Response: I think I was #65, but I’m not petty enough to point out that mistake… whoops. ; ) And please, call me Dread, or DN, just don’t call me late for dinner. It’s actually more of a thru-way underpass, more so than an actual bridge. But it’s cozy, the raccoons make nice neighbors, and there’s a crazy bag lady who lives across the way. She always brings me day old dough nuts from the local Dunkin’ Donuts dumpster from the previous nights shift. There are coffee grounds that get stuck to the frosted ones and glazed ones, but you just pick ‘em off. You should stop by some time. : )

  • T.J.

    @Wendel: So by your argument, men don’t matter, and adoptive parents don’t matter. Just because she didn’t _give birth_ won’t matter over the course of the children’s lifetime if she’s there and caring for them.

  • ed

    Surprise! Many (most?) gays and lesbians are Christians, too. Check out the Iowa same sex marriage pics on the Des Moines Register site. Note that a number of the marriages are officiated by clergy.

  • GoGo

    Whoa, I feel bad for the kids. Not because their parents are gays, but Wanda’s voice…yowzers.

    @#4 I lulz at the “It is not personal” remark.

  • banjoman

    I hope her kidneys fail.

  • Shay

    Oh, now , gays believe in God, so whats with all the non-stop Christian bashing? Being perverted is not NORMAL, any five year old will tell you. Who gawks at the homosexuals, THE CHILDREN>

  • calvin

    @Shay: What year are you living in? Our morality is completely socialized, the only reason a child would gawk at a gay person is if they’re taught to by their parents and or the media.

  • Shay


    Where do you live, San Francisco? How many children do you really know?

  • Wendel


    re-read the post mn. I know yelling “bigot” is a quick and easy way to avoid thinking, but it does not work in the real world.

    I said that Wanda is NOT a “mom” biologically. Alex is the only “partner” who can now claim the title. Yea, “heterosexual adoptive” couples have to EARN the title parent. Of course they do, what kind of argument is that? IF they find they cannot handle the child and give it back do they get to keep the parent title indefinitely???

    As for surrogate’s, there you have a good question to discuss. WHo exactly IS the parent? One egg, sperm, host . . . there are legal questions, but we DO call her a “surrogate mother.”

    But what part in this miracle did Wanda play?

    You see, just yelling “Bigot” all the time does not answer the tough questions. It is cheap and easy, but leaves the mess for others to clean up.

  • catherine


    hateful? she’s a comic. what about limpballs? is he hateful too? it interests me that some people get called ‘hateful’ for their remarks and others are given the head of the Repuke party.

  • diana

  • visitsickwanda

    can some body find out where she lives and post it online so some of us that live nearby can go speak to her as a group and reason with her or whatever before she wastes her life and goes to hell but remember just talking no violence and no large groups more than say 35 people ill try and find it and post it its a good thing the normal people outnumber people like her by 1000 to 1 according to the latest stats

  • calvin

  • SoTe

    So many haters, I feel embarrassed about belonging to the human race. Disgusting. Mind ur own business people, who the hell r u to judge, I bet u do stuff far more twisted than getting married to someone of your same sex. Morons.

  • SoTe

    @visitsickwanda: Oh my god! R u 4 real! Mind ur own business. I bet there are many skeletons in ur closet; so u take care of that and let Wanda handle her business. Who the f*** do u thik u are?

    Man, you people are hilarious. (And I’m fascinated by the repeated attacks on kidneys, of all things? What did kidneys do to you, or is this just a kinder, gentler, less bannable version of “they should be shot”?)

    Wendel, you might be right that Wanda is not the biological parent of either twin; of course, you also might be dead wrong. The embryo might be Alex’s, it might be Wanda’s, or it might be a donor’s. They’ve not opened up their marriage to your investigation, and so none of us have any idea.

    That said, Alex and Wanda were married in California almost a year ago, when it was legal (it does not get retroactively squashed by Prop 9). That means that their situation is exactly the same as other, heterosexual couples who use donor eggs or sperm, or who take on discarded embryos. I don’t know how that works, maybe there’s an adoption contract or maybe at the birth, the married couple are written down as “birth parents” given all donors have signed away rights. But it’ll be the exact same for Alex and Wanda as it is for Janine and Ralph down the street.

    Otherwise, there’s always the adoption angle. Plenty of parents have either adopted their wife’s existing bio kids (Seal and Klum, I think) or adopted their partner’s kids outside of marriage (Jolie-Pitt). Where legal, gays have been doing this for years; instead of marriage, they were adopting kids together. Their goal in doing this was always to protect their children legally, if the unthinkable were to happen to one parent.

    Lastly — I am utterly mystified by posters who look at this married couple and their children and shriek about the lack of a father. Are you aware that MANY children are abandoned by their fathers? Many abandoned by their mothers, too. Some single parents make up the balance with friends and relatives, or club together with other single parents for support networks. As far as I know, we do not remove children from household just because their father’s left or their mother’s lost custody, nor do we forcibly remove unplanned children of single women.

    Ideally, children should have at least two adults in their lives who are devotedly, protectively in love with them. That’s just good sense, as it spreads out the risk — if one parent dies or skips town, there’s still one parent at hand. These kids have two parents who have committed to each other enough to marry, and are dedicated enough to choose (and when you have to go through the hoops most lesbians do for kids, it’s a hard-fought choice) to start a family.

    I’m damn sorry for anyone with such poverty of soul that they can look at a situation like that and find it evil.

    This is 2009 and people are honestly still saying that gay marriage is “wrong”. hahaha. GROW UP.
