At least they care about being politically correct?

My kids were doing a project where they had to cast a hypothetically film version of the book we were reading. This lead to strange conversations.

Kid: Can we put Jodie Foster as the mom? Is that, like politically correct?
Me: Uh, what?
Kid: I mean, she's a lesbian.
Me: She's also an actress! She can play a straight person.
Kid: But...
Me: You realize that Neil Patrick Harris plays a straight guy on "How I Met Your Mother" and he's, like, super gay?
Kid: Oh yeah!
Me: Also, lesbians can be moms.
Kid: Good point. Good talk, M.
