Because the children you love are not harmed over the adults you choose to love.

If you'll indulge me, I'd like to interject something that I think, and hope you will agree, is important. Many of us out here in the safe, sane, consensual, sex-positive world of blogging are parents. Like, with kids. With, like, perfectly loving and healthy lives that are not in any way negatively impacted but what we do and share as responsible, informed, openminded, sophisticated adults. Adults who know the difference between a vibrant sexuality and a questionable home environment. You know: sane people.

Some of you may be familiar with Jefferson. If you aren't, I'd like to invite you to be, and to know that he could use a little help.

His supporters report that, in his current divorce proceedings, "his ex-wife has asked for a modification (of child custody) because of his involvement with alternative sexual expression, despite an absence of any evidence that his sexuality adversely impacts his children, and despite an abundance of evidence that he is a conscientious and responsible father."

"Jefferson - blogger, educator, and dear friend to so many of us - is at this moment fighting a court battle with his ex-wife, who is seeking full custody of their three children. (His) love for his children has been well-documented on his blog One Life, Take Two for years. His ex-wife has stated in court that he is a “great” father who loves his children. However, among her claims is that his bisexuality makes him an unfit parent."

A tax-deductable donation of even $20 to the Sexual Freedom Legal Defense and Education Fund from each of you who enjoy this blog would go a long way to send a message that sane adults who selectively enjoy their personal sexuality are not endangering the welfare of the children they love.

That's less money than some of you spend per month on your favourite adult dating or photography site. So do it. Do it now. I did.

Besides, when you donate, Delilah gets spanked. Help a comrade, set a precedent, save a family, see some college tart get her pert little heinie thwacked. Who could ask for more?

Why do people have nothing better to do than judge people they don't understand? Just because you have a healthy sex life doesn't mean you cannot be a great parent. There are plenty of parents out there who have vanilla sex lives who need to have their parental rights revoked.

I wouldn't be surprised of Jefferson's ex-wife (whom I admittedly don't know from a gloryhole in the wall), or maybe more accurately, her lawyer, is simply just using every conceivable tactic (no matter how ridiculous) to pursue their cutody goals. Some people are just unashamedly evil in that way.

Incidentally... isn't heinie just a great word? *smirk*

Heinie. Hm. Heinie.
