I began today asking all my hetero friends - especially those who have spawned - if they are "going home" for the holiday. I love the look on their faces and the puzzlement they show when they explain they have a "home." Well, I DO TOO. In fact I have a partner of 20 years and we have a nice "home." Just because I am a lesbian does not mean I am some infant or spinster sister who cries of lonliness and misses my mommy and daddy for santa time. I had it for years being infantized by heterosexual oppressors because my family doesn't look like theirs. I dont need their condescending pity. If you want to ask if I am "traveling over the holidays" or if I have "plans to visit family," fine. But don't ask me if I am going "home." My "home" is just as good as yours....
