Something Blue

Marriage inequality is sucky.
It makes me blue.

Here’s my final post in honor of Freedom to Marry week (details here), in which I give you something blue. Oddly, I sort of like photos of Boobaby crying. Maybe that’s because it just doesn’t happen all too often — she’s a pretty happy baby, I guess — and maybe because she’s learned to fake a smile, but the crying pictures retain some authenticity. Beats me.

Just in case you were looking uplift as we head into the weekend, here’s something more weddingly blue for ya:

See, happy baby! In blue!

Thanks again to The Other Mother for starting the Some/Thing carnival for marriage rights equality and to Lesbian Dad for telling me about it. You should totally read their (way better than mine) blogs.

Yeah, I totally get the kind of liking the crying pictures thing. Something does seem more honest about it, especially in those first months when all parents post pictures of angelic looking babies, when everyone knows to seconds later, they were screaming.

That 2nd photo, if she was standing just an ever so teenie weenie bit out of the shadow it would be be award winning.

Wonderful capture.

As a lawyer, I’ve been very disappointed that the expanding availability of gay marriage has not led to a treasure trove of caselaw in the field of gay divorce. Which, of course, would lead to the premier of Gay Divorce Court on Bravo, which would be all sorts of fun to watch.

Just as fun as the original, you mean? 🙂

To each his own!

Also, that she is SO CUTE when she is crying! Maybe that’s it.

Good of you to acknowledge the Freedom to Marry week. Maybe someday our world will be civilized and fair. Until then, here’s hoping.

May all people have freedom of choice to love whom they love, wholeheartedly.
