ParentDish did a Mother’s Day poll. Over 10,000 people voted. (For an Internet poll, that’s a lot, trust me. Or as Paris Hilton might say, “huge.”)
The first question on the poll was the following: “Which celebrity would you most feel comfortable leaving your kids with?”
You know who won? Drum roll, please…
With 31%, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi took the top spot. Rounding out the list were Jennifer Aniston (22%), Rachel Ray (20%), Angelina and Brad (18%) and coming in last was Oprah Winfrey with 9%.
The results are interesting. I probably would have put Rachel Ray first, and Ellen and Portia second. (Carrie Prejean, methinks, would put Ellen and Portia dead last.) Putting Jennifer ahead of Angie and Brad seems odd, but I guess that’s the way the celebrity winds are blowing this week.
Obviously the fact that the top choice was a same-sex couple is worth mentioning. Or is it? Have a majority of us progressed past the point where we care what sort of family we would leave our kids with? (In theory of course — as far as I know, none of the famous folks in this poll are offering babysitting services.)
Out of this group, who would you leave your kids with? Would the sexual orientation of the parents factor in to your decision?
