Monica Marquez gets a hand putting on her judicial robe from sister Christine Marquez-Hudson, left, and Sheila Barthel, Marquez's partner.

Oprah threw me a curve ball during her recent Barbara Walters interview.  I didn’t expect her to say that she and Gayle have sex with each other but I did not realize that I’m unsure of how to refer to myself.  Am I “a lesbian” or “lesbian?”  

Responding to Walters probing, Oprah stood straight, “I have said we are not gay enough times. I’m not lesbian… I’m not even kinda lesbian.”   

So, which is it?  I’m left puzzled.

Now for the real story.   Colorado’s newest Supreme Court Justice is a lesbian, and she has a partner who publicly helps to dress her.  

Actually, wouldn’t it have been better to publish a photo taken post-ceremony?   “Justice Marquez is publicly undressed by her lesbian love, Sheila Barthel – as her sister watches.”   Love it.

Watch a video of Rachel Maddow giving a shout out to her in-studio girlfriend (partner, lover, spouse, bedmate, wife – pick one) and the mother-in-law.  Also, learn a little about the girlfriend’s (Susan Mikula) art show opening this evening in New York City. 

Today (5 until 8 this evening) at CHC Gallery (511 West 20th Street), part-time New Yorker and full-time photographer Susan Mikula will unveil her solo exhibition titled “sic transit,” which exploits “the idiosyncrasies of a Polaroid camera.” The photographer comments on her work saying, “I’m obsessed with the passing of time and the way light changes. When I’ve done what I set out to accomplish in a photograph, I have preserved the skipping and floating and grinding of time.”

This really ticks me off.  I mean really ticks me off.   Two small children have been raised for 5 years by 2 mothers.  One day the legally recognized mom decides that she wants out of the relationship.  Sometimes it’s because of another love interest, sometimes it’s because her brain was sucked out by the force of religion . . . it really doesn’t matter why. 

All that matters for the kids is that their parents are no longer going to live together.  It is a crushing blow to children.  Their parents are their anchor to the world.  Everything revolves around their parents. 

In light of the f – – – ed up law in the US, many gay and lesbian parents can take advantage of the situation.  You see in heterosexual relationships there are laws to protect these children and governmental systems put in place so that parents can’t deny a child their other parent just because of a breakup.   However, in the case of a lesbian relationship . . . it’s a cage match to the end. 

So here are these right-wing crazy fool Christian f – – – wads who come in and try to help the scum bag mother who would keep her children from their other mother just because she doesn’t want to be in a relationship any longer. 

Judges often see through this and rule in the best interest of the children.  And believe me, it is in the best interest of the children to assist them in maintaining a relationship with both parents. 

No, not to the right wing crazed Christian a-holes.  All they care about is making sure that the lesbian is punished.  Forget about the kids – get the lesbo.

Scum – they are scum.  They can’t believe the judge is going to let these children have contact with both of their parents.  I mean . . . really . . . the ex-gay mom bought and paid for them!  Here is a link – CLICK HERE.

 

UPDATE:  Here is another one from Pams House Blend.  Can you imagine how much these moms are spending to in order to try to keep in contact with their children.  It is criminal!

Yet Another Round in Virginia (So-Called) Ex-Gay vs. Vermont Lesbian Custody Battleby: KatRose

 Pam reports on the (so-Called) Concerned (Occasionally) Women (cough! hack!) for America and their attempt to keep a mother from seeing her children.  Here is what the CWA wrote:

Please act now to pray and support Lisa Miller as she fights to keep her daughter, Isabella. Embroiled in a custody battle with her former lesbian partner, Lisa is now a Christian who wants to raise her own biological child but has been told by the Vermont courts that they may strip her of those rights. Pray for Lisa as she and her legal counsel attend a hearing that will take place on October 27, 2008, in Vermont. At that hearing, a judge will decide whether or not Lisa will be punished for supposedly disobeying the court-ordered visitation to a woman who is not biologically related to her child.

Lisa’s attorney, Rena Lindevaldsen, has written a letter to update everyone on Lisa’s current situation. Rena gives her own account of Lisa’s story and explains what will happen in the coming months. To read Rena’ letter, in its entirety, please go to http://www.cwfa.org/images/content/millerrenaletter.pdf.

Did anyone else notice that there was no coverage of lesbian or gay significant others who were watching their spouses/mates/partners from the stands in Beijing? Natasha is very out and open and has given interviews indicating that Angela would be traveling to Beijing but . . . where was she?   And, even though it was reported that a breakup with a girlfriend had caused Natasha some problems on the field – no follow up story.  Didn’t we all want to know – WHAT HAPPENED NEXT?  Where is the rest of the story?

Michael Phelps’ mom and sisters were EVERYWHERE.    But the lgbt folks – nothing about their personal lives. 

Matthew Mitcham, the out gay diver from Australia won a gold medal and his partner was in the stands watching but . . . nothing . . . nothing about his partner or any of his family members.   In fact, I don’t think they even mentioned that the guy is gay even though he’s been the cover boy of several gay magazines covering his trip to Beijing. 

Different topic.   Here is a blogger who says, “One other note: It was slightly difficult to root for the US when Natasha Kai was on the field…because I fucking hate her.”    Click here to find out why.
