When you’re a lesbian and you have children, or you’re pregnant, or you’ve ever even mentioned the word “baby” in a public place… you’ve inevitably been hit with an onslaught of extremely personal questions.

These are questions no straight couple would ever be asked. I mean can you imagine going up to a man and wife at their baby shower and asking, “So, how does this work? Was your wife on top when you conceived, or were you hitting that from behind?”

No.

You wouldn’t do that because you probably have some level of social awareness and decency.


For some reason all of that goes out the window when it comes to the “exotic” world of same-sex parenting.

So I have made a blog. The first post is called:

"All The Answers to the Extremely Personal and Borderline Inappropriate Questions We’ve Gotten Regarding My Pregnancy"

On Writing While Female, Race, and The Commenters

About a week ago, my A.V. Club editor and friend Sonia got a world of shit in the comments section of a review, and it got shut down. It wasn’t the first time the comments got nasty towards her, or even the third, or the fifth…at this point, getting a world of shit is just part of her reviewing…

I Love Caroline.

You can’t tell by looking at it, but these pine cones smell like cinnamon. I also had a pumpkin spice latte this morning (decaf, obvi). It may be super hot outside, but we are ready for autumn!

Gail Simone’s half of Sensation Comics featuring Wonder Woman was what I bought the issue for (Gail writing Wonder Woman and Oracle again? Yes please…more of this).

But i loved the second story by Amanda Deibert, it was fantastic and so necessary. Cat Staggs art was great too…slightly JH…

Well, this just gave me warm fuzzies. So glad you enjoyed it.

…I didn’t see this in the online version? Did I miss it?

No, it’s from the chapter Cat and I did which will be out digitally next week. It came out today in print.
