I don't really know what I am musing on these days. It's more like an irregular stream of consciousness thing...it seems to be working.

Watching a very interesting dorkumentary on Logo called "Daddy and Papa", addressing the issues that gay men face in raising children in a very hetero-skewed world, at least from a parenting perspective. One of the things that really struck me was a couple who are in essence divorced, but have a...10 year old? daughter. One of her fathers said, "it's more that we face issues as divorced parents, not as gay parents". And that really resonated. Parenting is parenting, regardless of who you find attractive sexually. All these men are doing EXACTLY the same things Gene and I do, or any of our friends who are heterosexual. It's so utterly, utterly, UTTERLY stupid that there are barriers to gay men, women, couples, whatever, adopting. Considering how many children are languishing in foster homes and aching for a "forever" family...and here are probably thousands of men who would cut off their right arms to be able to be parents...it's damn infuriating. Thank goodness in California they can, but there are certainly states where that is not the case (cough, FLORIDA). And isn't it nice that the Supreme Court won't touch that one? Oh, but they can be foster parents. Um. Okay? So it's okay for them to be non-legal parents, but not legal parents? WTF?

In a perfect world, there would be a watertight global law that says adoptive parents can't be discriminated against due to sexual orientation. Wouldn't that just frost Anita Bryant's butt?

Dude, I concur.
BTW, I miss y'all. When are you going to fly up and take me out on a hot date? Or, conversly, fly me down and take me out on a hot date?
Nerdy University Job Offer is in the works... I should know sometime in the next few days. It involves shoving lots of grammer into very small holes.

Anita Bryant is a filthy whore who needs some time under the whip of a good dominatrix to reform her and her evil ideas.


And the supreme court are a bunch of pussies.

My prednisone is still screwing with my brain. Can't you tell? :)

Love is love.
