Adina, I am confused!
There are a dozen threads below this one along the lines of "I am married to a man and have the hots for this other woman and am thinking of pursuing a sexual relationship with her; my husband may or may not participate, etc...." Those threads have nothing to do with parenting.
I am struggling with understanding this space.
1) I KNOW it should be for gay parenting (which as I have pointed out before, is the smallest tiny percentage of threads. We have been trying to change that, though as more lesbian moms are coming out to post)
2) I know the biggest share of threads and most views are the poly/intimacy type subjects. Threads more about how to manage and create open relationships and intimacy.
3) So this particular thread is called "Lesbian fluff thread." I think it was posted in the spirit of those lesbian moms who are finally beginning to connect and build rapport with each other. For it to be moved, while the many other non-parenting threads here get no similar comments, it feels weird to me.
I really wish we could figure out the categoriation of space in a way that makes everyone comfortable. I have seen Cynthia's recent posts on Parents as Partners that sex/intimacy/relationship problems are not something MDC wants to host space for. I am on board with that and feel that would be a good thing across all the forums, including this one.
But I do think "fluff" threads in which lesbians or bi-mommas build community and rapport with each other is advantageous. In order to provide support for the specific parenting problems we will encounter (like our kids getting harassed for having two moms), it helps to build a rapport with each other through chit-chatty conversation. KWIM?
It leans me back to us having space in a Tribal area or something.
I wish we'd get a dialogue going about where things "fit"! So we all feel like we know where things go
