I came across an article some time ago in an on-line newspaper, and now I’m really glad I saved it because I noticed they don’t seem to have any archives. the entire article is in the additional entry for those who want to read it. However there is one part of it that really struck a nerve with me and thats what I want to talk about today.
“Heterosexual couples are not automatically good parents.”
now please keep in mind this is all about me *s*
one of the things he (the ex) has stated to me in the past regarding why he thinks he will walk away with my kids is this..and I’m quoting him here..

to which my immediate thought was, ‘yea..your point here?’
which I think was..and mind you this is only my opinion..because he is a straight, white, male, and we have 3 boys, that automatically makes him the better parent..
and for no other reason than that..

because I’m “not straight” (his words)
oh yea..there’s logic there…
that must be why no gay couples are allowed to adopt children..
oh wait a minute, thats not true…
that must be why in almost every case I’ve found the gay parent loses custody of their kids…
oh wait, thats not true either…
OK folks, help me out here, surely there must be some reason his being ‘straight’ makes him a better parent..right?
would love to hear your thoughts on this one *s*
