Consistently Inconsistent

Inconsistance is the name of my game. I am famous for starting new and ambitious projects/hobbies and not finishing/continuing them.

I have many started paintings that are just collecting dust. I’ll probably never finish them.

I have been making the same blanket for 5 years. I started it as a gift for my first-born niece but have never finished it.

I collect scrapbooking supplies and have boxes of photos and empty photo albums stored away… need I say more?

I have been writing a book for 6 years. I find it hard to find uninterupted time to write.

Many of the picture frames in my home are missing photos of my family. They still have the original images of model families in them. My Dad calls them my “other” family!

I started a Delphi Forum online almost 10 years ago. I have it organized to showcase all my talents but have not updated it in a long time.

I have a Twitter account in order to spread the word about this blog. I have never learned to use it.

Which brings me to this blog. I started it with the intention of connecting with people who think like me. I even started a Facebook page using my pen name to announce new blog posts and share my successes. (Which by the way, I do keep up with.) This blog became too much work when trying to promote my writing. So I have decided not to stress it. I’ve promised myself that I will make an effort to write at least once per week. If I write more… great! If not, I’ll try harder next week.

The Truth About Being a Lesbian

Who would choose a lifestyle where they would be ridiculed and judged for being happy? Not me! I would never choose to be gay, had I been given a choice in the matter. Yet, here I am, married to the love of my life and long time best friend… who just happens to be a woman. We have been together 11 years this December 2nd, 2014 and have been married only a year on the 20th of July, 2013. We know eachother in and out. We have been through many obstacles,  but have not given up on eachother yet. That is true love! A decade of true love! 

I can’t bring my daughter to the doctors or hospital without written concent from my wife because she is the birth Mom.  It doesnt matter that I was by her side in the hospital as she had our daughter. I am not legally a parent until I adopt as a step parent because we were not married at the time of her birth. I remember the day they came into our hospital room and told us that we would have to fill another birth certificate application out… without my information on it.

We get funny looks and comments like “Do you think they are gay?” or “Which one is the guy?” when we go out in public as a family. I worry that my almost 2 year old might catch on to the snidness of their remarks. I want her to be happy with the life we have given her and it could be damaging to see her parents talked down to and degraded. But on the other hand, seeing us handle these situations effectively could teach her to handle other people’s views with grace!

Another obstacle I face because I am a homosexual is my rights as a married American not being met in all states. Say we want to move to a state that does not recognize married homosexuals. We would not have the same rights as a married couple but more like that of room mates. (New York’s Onondaga County Social Services would not put our cases together until we were married, even though it was obvious we were a family!)

I am truly happy with my life today. And Im grateful I didnt have to choose to be straight or gay. In the end, I ended up with my soul mate as naturally as any heterosexual couple does. My life just has more obstacles because I am different from what society says I should be. It just makes me stronger than the next person! I would even say I am proud to be gay!
