Hey look at what the newspaper is saying...

I was going to post something about today's story about WA's first gay adoption (er the parents are gay, not the baby obviously) but Dan's already gone and done it. I'm torn between feeling really chuffed that this first step has taken and being filled with fury at some of the disgusting ignorant and ridiculous responses to the news. In the spirit of getting some work done, however, instead of posting angry responses to some of these tools (yes I did crack and post one but just one I swear) I'm going to take a deep breath and say kudos to the State Government, the DCD, the couple and the Mum involved. And I might write a letter to the editor just to try and get in before some of these dickslaps do. But um probably just one.

Oh and I only just read The West's editorial on the subject. Which was fucked. What a surprise and how wonderful to think that these are the people behind our only daily newspaper. Gutless anonymous twat.

Yup it's one of my all time favourites... the bit about measuring your life out in silver spoons is lovely too.

me too, measuring out in coffee spoons, Prufrock is awesome. I think of that line when I hear the Chilli peppers sing that line "pour my life into a paper cup".
