How'd I miss this little tribe? *waving* Hi all! Bi mama (well, technically speaking, but I prefer "queer"), married to a bi man. Technically we have an open relationship, but we've not really been pursuing anything outside the marriage since I've been pregnant, probably won't for awhile unless it just lands in our lap. Who's got time?
We did go to Pride this year, missed the last couple years because it was too hot for ds. In the past, we'd go with my lesbian friends and all hang out together...dh has been referred to as my "fag stag" before.
This year, I thought we'd get the most odd looks because it was me, dh, both kids, and I was already showing...but nope. The gay marriage issue is getting so big, I think it's becoming more common for people who are straight, but "queer allies", or however you want to say it, to hang out at Pride and whatnot. So they probably figured we were just a gay-friendly straight couple, which makes me a little sad, but it's better than getting weird looks, KWIM?
We're not necessarily open about our sexuality with our kids because they're so young, but we do try not to reinforce the hetero norms. We don't assume they'll be straight, we talk in really simple terms about how the current marriage laws are unfair, try not to reinforce any gender stereotypes (though I admit, it's hard to resist the urge to buy pink frilly stuff for this baby!). Dd saw 2 boys kissing on a TV show, said "ewww gross!" and boy did she get an earful!
