Shoot the politicians now!
OK, I'm mad enough about this to leave one post involving fertility not friends locked and not behind a cut. I heard about it through another blog I read:

http://www.alittlepregnant.com/alittlepregnant/2005/10/holy_smoking_mo.html

For those of you not reading the friends-locked-behind-cuts entries on this blog, I have unexplained infertility, so right now I'm thanking my lucky stars I don't live in Indiana.

I have all sorts of opinions about this and the sort of theocratic loonies I believe are probably behind it, but lets just sum up by saying that this is BAD. Can you say discriminatory?

Urk. Umm, be glad that we have a state system? Blech.

(There's no polite way to ask this, but could I please read your entries on infertility? It's a problem I share and I would love to get to listen to/ commiserate with more people I know. I realize that you don't know me well but we have many friends in common. If you're not comfortable with this then just forget I asked.)

Ask and you shall receive...

Done. I hadn't noticed you'd friended me, oops. We really should actually meet each other some time. Be warned, the TTC posts involve much unflattering whining.

Thanks!

"We really should actually meet each other some time."
I believe that you were pointed out to me at one of firstfrost's parties, but you were in a conversation and left before I got to introduce myself.

"Be warned, the TTC posts involve much unflattering whining."
I won't hold it against you.

And here's the not-very-informative summary of my infertility.

If you ever feel the need to talk details, I'd be happy to do that. I know sometimes you just don't want to think about the details, much less talk about them. On the other hand, sometimes you do and its easier with someone who knows all the right buzzwords like HSG and Clomid. :?

Yeah, Indiana has definitely been removed from my list of states to ever visit. I know Tomcat has a much bigger list (like all red states), but Indiana is officially the first state on my list.

Don't read too much into individual state legislators' proposed bills that are quickly retracted. There are some seriously mentally defective people in state legislatures everywhere. They don't represent mainstream opinion even within the lunatic fringe.
