Ahh, Mesa. My home town. It's good to see that some things never change. I live here in a bustling Canadian metropolis with my...partner and our two children. He's a great Dad; provides time, energy, love,compassion; helps the children to mold their identities, provides a masculine presence and is even the sole breadwinner. Alas, marriage isn't for him; so, despite our fifteen years of happiness and the beautiful family we have created, complete with stay-at-home-Mom, we are a failure since we never intend to marry.
How dare you discount the inherent value and commitment in a family like mine simply because we don't take part in the same rituals as you? Such xenophobic rhetoric is tiresome and empty. Attitudes like this are why I so often look at my beloved and say, "Thank goodness we left."
Before it starts? There is no need to tell me that you're glad I'm gone; honestly, that's the somewhat more mature version of 'I know you are but what am I?" Note: I said it first.
Enjoy rolling up the sidewalks, Mesa. One day, you'll grow up; I have hope.11 months ago
