For some reason, I got to thinking about Straight People. I think because my last post was about TCC and Cee (who is pregnant) posted a comment. *winking at Cee*
I have never wanted to be straight. That is in spite of the fact, that straight people don’t make being gay easy. Seriously. You guys beat us up in grade school, and as adults you won’t let us get married. (I’m married in my state, but one toe into RI, and Jen and I are no longer married.)
Despite this, I have never wanted to be straight. I am a pretty uptight person, so I am not really sure how I got this free spirited attitude towards my sexuality. Maybe its because being gay really upset my mother, so it was pretty much worth it.
But in the lesbian blogosphere, and off line, I know a lot of lesbians TTC. I have to say, I am jealous of straight people. You guys get to have S*X with your husbands and boyfriends to make babies. How cool is that.
Is there anything more unromantic than lesbian baby making. I mean you try. You start out with the romantic evening, Melissa Ferrick CD and the syringe laid on the pillow. This never works.
Inevitably, you end up at the doctors, your feet in cold stirrups, drugged up on some funky thing, and the nurse poking that d*ldo thing into your ovaries.
So you got us on that one.
But to everybody TTC, straight and gay, I can say from experience, it’s worth it. Once the doctor or midwife places that little baby on your belly, all of the bad stuff just seems like a bad dream. And you just woke up.
