Racism and lesbians

A white lesbian couple is suing a sperm bank for giving them the wrong sperm. According to multiple sources, which stem from court documents, they live in a racist city and have a racist family, and having a black baby is a big hassle! Apparently black people don’t like the baby either, because when they go to the black neighborhoods to get a haircut, they get started at. I guess cutting black people hair is not taught in barber school.
I am getting ahead of my self. Let’s examine the intolerant bigot of a family they have. These are the people who taught her everything about life. She doesn’t want to leave these people and she is very close to them. I can’t help but wonder how much influence they had on her.
Next, I want to think about the place of residence. Her city is racist and only likes white people. How does she come to this conclusion? By the barber shop? Either way, she claims that she needs to move because of all the racists. It seems that the only non racist place in the whole town, was the sperm bank.
To me, the whole thing is about racist lesbians who wanted a white baby, but got a black baby that they can’t give back to the sperm bank. I can believe that the family could be racist, but the whole city I don’t believe. No one has burned a cross in their front yard and they seem to be the only ones complaining. I can understand some frustration with the accuracy of the spam bank, but it makes it sound like the child is unwanted. Imaging growing up and learning that your gay moms wanted a white baby instead. That makes me more than angry. The child is healthy and happy, so don’t ruin that smile by saying that this baby is a problem because it is biracial.

Is there a feminist inferiority complex?

I actually feel bad for women. I look at team sports and see the empty seats surrounding them, and then the guys play the same game and pack the place. Unless it is women’s volleyball, especially with those cute shorts or bikinis. As soon as the men’s team takes the stage though, the mood changes from cute and light hearted, to aggressive and competitive. The men are obviously more enjoyable to watch because of their higher energy, but does that make the women bad?

In the business world we always have the argument that women get paid less for doing the same job. Sometimes this is completely true! There are jerks and you shouldn’t expect a shortage anytime soon,  but often times, women have to take off work and miss promotions for family reasons. Men are subject to these same rules, but it is just more common for the mother to take the family as a priority over work.

The whole thing is dancing around the “anything you can do, I can do better” song. It reminds me of my child hood when my little brother would compete with me. I knew I could do better, but he was determined to have a try at it. The only reason I would ever compete with him was because I knew I would win.

Why can’t women be themselves and do the things that they are good at doing? I don’t mean washing dishes and ironing, lots of women are really terrible at that. I can’t think of anything that a woman does, other than birth, which sets me in awe. I wish I could think of more, but I think all the glory that is a woman, has been lost in their fruitless competition with men. There is nothing wrong with being a woman, embrace it and repave that hidden road.
