Being a homosexual, I am not constrained by the societal norms to pro-create. And, although many of my gay brethren are fathering children, I am still undecided when it comes to my desire to be a dad.
I think I would make a good father but I also like to be really selfish…so who knows. Then comes this story from the New York Times. Essentially, I am nearing my prime “furniture” buying years and I have some pretty refined tastes, so when I have the moolah, I am not going to be stopping by Ikea to get the goods.
But now I am worried. What if I want to have kids later on and I have invested in all these great (and expensive) material possessions? How will I protect them and my child? After a little soul searching, I have found the answer….
I am just going to have a baby now! Getting the baby having out of the way now is perfect timing, because I really don’t own anything nice for said baby to ruin. Then I can have a baby shower to acquire all the necessary baby things. Two worries down!
Now, where does one go to buy a high-end, designer baby with Stain protector that will match the soft blue and tan color scheme of my hipster apartment?
