Emilin & Brooke from Name That Mama just had their baby. I only stumbled across their blog a few weeks ago but immediately subscribed after reading a few entries. I've been reading the countdown to the end of the pregnancy eagerly, and was so excited to see the post a couple of days ago with pictures.
Unfortunately, some assmunch got nasty in the comments:
I pity people like you, you'll never have real families, but unfortunately this child will not have one, either.
And if that weren't bad enough, she threw in some personal attacks:
I swear, I think I'll see pigs fly before I'll see a homosexual woman that looks decent enough for any self-respecting man to be interested in her.
People like this commenter are one of two reasons that given the choice between the two major political parties in the US today, I am a fierce liberal. Tax the hell out of me, I can handle it, but don't you dare try to tell me that someone else is not my equal because they choose to have romantic relationships with someone of their own gender.
And the worst part is that it wasn't a random post, but the post where they posted pics of their new daughter! I can't even conceive of someone doing such a thing on my "she's here" post, a result of my own hetero privilege that I can assume I won't be attacked - at least not for that.
AGHH. It just makes me so angry.
