So..............I was watching TV with my parents today and we were watching Bonnie Hunt's talk show. So, Mellisa Etheridge is talking to Bonnie about her kids and stuff....when she says "my wife Tammy bakes....."
My dad's like "Wife??? Is that what she said?...Jesus" and he sorta chuckles.
And my moms like "yeah" and they have a bit of a laugh.....ha ha...it's so funny.....whatever
Then they are quiet for a bit and then my mom says "How can she call herself a mom and have a wife???"......something along those lines.....
Then my dad says "well, they're a same-sex couple....that's the way it is".............WTF??? Huh, I don't get it he makes a comment/crack about her having a wife and then says that....I don't really get it.....
My mom's just like "well, I know but......................"
My moms comments are starting to get to me.......They didn't really used to get to me but now it's like enough! I was almost ready to speak up today but I didn't....I just let it go. Sometimes I do though, I make it a point to say that I'm fine with queer people and that they are just like "us" you know?
Sometimes she's just trying to be funny but it's serious comments about gay couples marrying and raising children that bother me. Mostly, because I can joke around about queer celebrities too...I mean the nothing little jokes. But the comments about gay people and them marrying and raising children....they stab me right in the heart....they are a sore spot for me because at some point I hope to have my own children....that's important to me. Since I was a kid I remember thinking about growing up and having my own family...me being gay doesn't change any of that...not one thing.
Sorry mom but one day I'm probably gonna be raising my own children with my girlfriend......I hope your there to be a part of your grandchildrens lives. It would suck if you weren't all because you couldn't get over the fact that I don't need or want a guy....and that the person that stole my heart happen to be a girl.........woop dee do!!!
Sorry, I feel a little upset after thinking about this......I need to listen to some music and make it all just wash away.
Oh, thanks to everybody here on Oasis who wished me a Happy Birthday:) It was really nice.....Sometimes on days like this you need that little extra boost. So, thanks:)
