Lawsuit: Wrong sperm delivered to lesbian couple -

…..I’m so afraid for this baby. I wonder how they are treating her considering they didn’t want a black child to begin with

The article says that they love and accept her and that their suit is based out of concern for her specifically.

Essentially, the mother who carried her, as well as her partner, have bonded with her, but they have anxieties because they were unprepared for the racial nuance required for such a parenting experience. They go to Black hair salons out of town because they don’t know how to do her hair, and they worry about how to educate her properly about herself and the history in general, and keep her feeling loved and safe. But they also worry because their white family already has issues with them being gay, let alone their racial insensitivities. They recognized, thankfully, that while they may be able to avoid certain conversations about being lesbians by way of omission, that there would be no way for their daughter to obfuscate her mixed race identity. Nor should she have to be under such pressure anyway.

They have been given recommendation by their therapist to move to a racially diverse community and I think that’s what they’re seeking recompense for, financial means to do just that, so their daughter will have community support.

So thankfully, it sounds like she is very loved and cared for and they just want what’s best for her. They are under a lot of stress though because they recognize they are ill-equipped to deal with racism (the mother said shed only met her first Black acquaintance in college… so they are truly in an all white community as of now) but I’m glad they are aware because they will take consistent action, which is more than a lot of white parents of mixed Black children are willing to do, unfortunately.

Hopefully, they will be prepared for possible emotional damage that will arise when she finds out about this lawsuit. It may very well read, to her, she wasn’t meant to be born.

male gamers like to pretend that male characters designed, draw/rendered and written by men, made hulkishly muscular and hypermasculine by men for a deliberate target audience of men is objectification and hypersexualisation rather than actively appealing to male power fantasy

and it’s somehow women’s fault of course

The NFL has apologized for penalizing Muslim player for praying 

Another week done, another PR disaster for the NFL.
This one came in the middle of Monday Night Football, after Kansas City Chiefs safety Husain Abdullah returned an interception for a touchdown. Abdullah is a practicing Muslim — he even skipped an entire football season to make a pilgrimage to Mecca — and prostrated himself in the end zone in prayer. The result? A 15-yard penalty for excessive celebration.
The apologized for this one quickly


Yet Tebow never got penalized for kneeling and praying and practicing his religion.
