Ask Me Anything- Part 3

It’s been a while since I had an “Ask Me Anything” post. But since it’s a new year with new readers and a new direction with this blog, I thought I’d do this again.

Here are the simple directions:

1- Ask a question in the comment box about anything you want to know about me (barring my social security number, etc). No question is too great or small. Lurkers, I want to hear from you too.

2- I’ll respond.

3- I’ll summarize all questions and answers in a follow-up post.

See, I told you that was easy. Thanks for playing!

Check out this post and this post to see past questions and answers.

    Where do you see you and your family in five years?

    Do you want to get another degree?

      In 5 years, I see us in our “forever” place– the city that is. That is very much undecided so far though we have some ideas and a smaller list than 5 years ago. God willing, I see 1 or 2 or maybe even 3 more children. I see us doing work that more closely resonates with both our talents AND our passion.

      I have ambitions for 2 more degrees- 1 from seminary and 1 a PhD that will combine my background in education and my studies in liberation spirituality. I am really excited about taking those next steps!

    What is the biggest misconception about lesbians or lesbian relationships?

    How did you and A pick a donor for your daughter? What criteria did you use?

    Do you still visit Nappturality, even though you’re relaxed now?

      OOOh these are good ones.

      1- People assume that we either had bad relationships with men in the past or dislike men. Neither are true for me. Some of my best friends are male! (joke intended). Another annoying misconception is that we are trying to emulate a heterosexual relationship in terms of gender-presenting– that one is the “man” and one is the “woman. And a huge misconception is that our family is drastically different than “regular” families.. Um, nope! We encounter many of the same challenges and aren’t trying to gay-atize other people’s kids.

      2- The donor selecting process actually took us some years. We went from considering friends, to known donors, and then finally an anonymous one from a sperm bank. Our primary criteria was that it had to be a situation where our parenting rights couldn’t be jeopardized (contracts with known donors not thru a bank CAN be challenged). Health and intelligence were probably our second highest criteria. Then we wanted a person of color (though this wasn’t a must-have.. we had a white donor at one point and eventually settled on a multi-ethnic donor).

      3- I do visit NP and even have an active membership. I took a break about a month ago b/c messageboards in general were annoying me and I was becoming way too addicted (checking in the middle of the night, etc). But we must be in sync somehow b/c I thought about putting my big toe in the water again today 🙂
