Has My Uterus Has Been Snubbed?
I think my Uterus has been snubbed but I have decided not to take it personally. Instead I'm going to investigate.
It all started this morning when I got my copy of EW magazine. There is a great article/cover on Gay Teens on TV. It got me thinking about the presence of the GLBT community in the media in general, which then got me thinking about the GLAAD Media Awards . . . which then got me wondering . . . How in the HELL has my uterus never won a GLAAD award? Sure, sure, someone needs to submit an entry on my uterus' behalf, which I guess, is the problem.
You know me, you know my uterus. It is strong, passionate and able to carry multiple babies at one time! It is a Super Hero of sorts. (A future post will discuss it's powers . . . complete with its Rainbow Cape!)
So, 2 sets of twins in 2 years for 2 different Gay Couples! My followers, friends and surrogate agency, Growing Generations, know that my Uterus, up to this point, has been pretty exclusive . . . being Gay has been a pre-requisite. A few people have considered my Uterus to be a bit Homosexist, some may venture to say Heterophobic!
Hell! If I decide to do a third journey, and you're straight & looking to use me as a surrogate, I've decided on the following criteria . . . because "Having a gay friend will not cut it".
You must have/be at least 3 of the following (if you're straight):
* Posed for the NOH8 campaign
* Worked along side several GLBT people for an extended amount of time
* Been Cast in RENT ( Maureen or Collins gets extra points)
* Your Name is Kathy Griffin or Margaret Cho
* You know what the letters in HRC, GLAAD, GLSEN, and PFLAG stand for
* You have donated time or money to The Trevor Project
* Created your own It Gets Better Video
* YOU have 2 Dads or Moms
* Have The Next Family, After Elton or Greg in Hollywood bookmarked on your computer.
Some of you may think I'm not being serious, but you know what, I kind of am. I entered the realm of Surrogacy in October of 2007 and started my blog March of 2008. I have fought for "Gay Rights" since the early 90's and am not going to stop now. So, I think it's okay to be a bit picky about who I decide to help.
After all, it's my body and I can do whatever I want with it . . . I just think holding a GLAAD award would totally bring out my uterus.
