I kid you not.
A pair of white lesbian women (I know, I know – all lesbians are women) are suing the sperm bank they used to have their 2nd child. Jennifer Cramblett of Uniontown, Ohio filed the lawsuit, saying that she and her partner, Amanda Zinkon, had chosen a white donor who had provided the sperm for their first child to also provide the sperm for their second. Somehow, though a paperwork error at the sperm bank, they accidentally received the wrong “donation.” Which led to them having a “mixed-race” child.
Cramblett says raising their 2-year-old daughter Payton has been stressful and that she continues to “live each day with fears, anxieties and uncertainty about her future and Payton’s future.”
While the lawsuit says they have bonded and love their mixed-raced child, raising her in a community that lacks diversity has caused emotional stress. Cramblett says she grew up in an “all white and unconsciously insensitive family” and doesn’t want their daughter to feel stigmatized. She said that she dreads the day when she’ll have to send Payton to an all-white school and that her therapist recommended she relocate to a more diverse neighborhood with good schools.
What I find completely ridiculous about this story is that these women are concerned about raising a mixed race child in an all white community but they have no concern about what the child will face as the child of two women?
On the 2010 census almost 3% of our population identified as mixed race (both black and white), However, most surveys and studies of our population agree that less than 2% of our population is homosexual.
I myself grew up as a darker-skinned minority in an all white community who never faced negative scrutiny as I progressed through the public school system and local recreational sports programs… and that was almost 20 years ago. I had a wonderful childhood with great friends and tremendous community interaction, even if I didn’t have many peers who looked like me.
The fact of the matter is that in today’s America the mixed-race (really mixed ethnicity) population is booming – not so with the gay population. In most communities across America the ethnic biases that may have been found in the past are just that… a thing of the past. I can guarantee these “parents” that their child will face much less scrutiny because of the color of her skin than she will because of the fact that she has two mommies.
But perhaps… just perhaps, the problems their child will have aren’t the issue at all.
Perhaps the real problem is that these two “progressive” liberal-minded women are simply horrible, horrible racists? Reminds me of a lot of other delusional liberals I know.
