I will never forget the sound of my doctor’s laughter when I asked her for something to stop me from crushing on people. I had this unending want to connect with people romantically, and as I was being raised in a culture of slut shaming, I was sure that “the want” meant something was wrong with me.

She meets she, a U-Haul ensues, then comes marriage and now, with all the options available, comes a baby in a baby carriage. I love these relationships. They are deep and meaningful and valid and amazing.
