She's on the soapbox again...

    Great post. I love the soapbox.

    Here's how the anti-gay-parents movement affects me personally:

    In the mister's and my wills, if anything should happen to us both, we've made a pair of our closest friends Sam's legal guardians. They've also agreed to legally adopt Sam. As I'm sure you've already guessed, this couple is gay, so Sam will end up with two of the kindest, coolest, most generous mommies anyone could hope for.

    What pisses me off AS A PARENT is that any government would presume to tell me that my guardianship decisions for my child are invalid. Excuse my French, but what the fuck???

    The mister and I love our families, we really do, but we don't want Sam raised by them. We want him raised here, in the place WE settled and decided to make our life, and we want him raised by people who share OUR values.

    Just the thought that anyone could presume to snatch Sam away from guardians that he knows and loves and trusts, and that whoever did snatch him would say they were doing it "for his own good," actually makes me shake with anger.

    And here's me getting off my soapbox now.
