I've never felt so much like it's us vs. them until the last month or so. With the re-election of Bush and the subsequent revealing of Jesusland, not to mention the great love of Bush displayed at DisneyWorld, and of course, our making public our intent to become parents, it's starting to feel that way. The idea that we're somehow "not moral" and along with that, the idea that being parents entitles us only to adopt a child with special needs (I wonder, do they offer straight white couples that kind of child first?), or one who is not our same race. Because somehow, we're seen as second-class citizens.
It's really starting to get to me as I slowly realize that we'll never really be seen as equal to the people who like the idea of "morals" and "family values." We'll always be second-best. I can only hope that I don't ever start to believe what I hear and agree with them that I deserve any less in this life than they do.
