Comment received this week at Motherhood Lotus:
"I first found your products at Becoming Mothers, and I like them very much! The logo is funny and charming and I like the products on which it appears. However, I have not purchased any of them because I would prefer it if they said "Parenthood" instead of "Motherhood".
I think that having only "motherhood" on your logo is neglectful towards fathers, and perhaps indirectly towards women who don't bear their own children. This is because the most natural explanation for not including fathers is that they don't carry the baby for nine months nor breastfeed, which is also true of mothers who adopt or use surrogates. This is why I suggest "parenthood" - it honors everybody who is a parent, regardless of gender or how they came to be a parent.
You may have heard this suggestion before, but I hope that you will consider it and my reasons for it!"
