Nonconforming Jews try to have a child

The NY Times reports:
Some L.G.B.T. Parents Reject the Names ‘Mommy’ and ‘Daddy’

When Amanda Davidson, a 42-year-old Los Angeles-based artist and writer, welcomed her firstborn child in December — a boy named Felix — with her partner Isaac Schankler, 39, a composer, she chafed at the assumptions the medical staff members made about how the pair wanted to identify themselves as parents.
I don't get it. Isn't this a man and a woman having a child? Where is the LGBT?

I don't know, but this is a Jewish newspaper celebrating a Jewish couple that is not even married. The woman is 42 years old, having a first child. So they probably had fertility treatments, or it was an adoption, or something. And they don't want to be mommy and daddy?

Is there any other ethnic group that celebrates this sort of psychological disorder?
