There exists a widespread stereotype that we, lesbians, spend our Friday and Saturday nights curled up with our beloved cats and dogs, watching Orange Is The New Black or what not on Netflix. Well, loathe stereotypes as I might, I actually see nothing wrong with loving our furry babies to the fullest.
Here is a photo that my lady took of Yoshi and me on his birthday, Jan 8th – he is a Capricorn 🙂
The fact that cats, dogs, and other “babies” bring us so much joy may partially stem from the troubles we face when trying to have human children. The incredibly costly health and/or adoption procedures are a difficult hurdle to overcome, to say the least. This is not to say that pets entirely replace children, but we have a lot of love to give. Despite what bigots and homophobes may think, we the gay people are obviously full of love and affection and want to bestow it upon just about every creature that comes our way.
So, here’s to our beloved pets! May our families be ever-expanding with children of all kinds!
