[1] Larry P. Gross, Up from Invisibility: Lesbians, Gay Men, and the Media in America (2001), page 208: "In March 1998, however, Patty Sheehan came out in a Golf World magazine column." Quoting from the column, "I didn't really know how well others would deal with the idea of Bryce having two moms, but I've decided if they have a problem with it, it's their problem, not mine... There are too many children in this world who don't have an equal chance in life and who aren't loved to worry about what other people think."
