I want my child to grow up in a world where there is no such thing as marriage discrimination. I want to be the one called when he gets in trouble in school. I want to be able to list my name as his father on school and medical transcripts. I want parental rights! However, that’s not legal unless I enter into a marriage contract with his biological father. Unfortunately, that is also not legal. I taught him to crawl, walk, talk, and I changed pretty much all of his diapers, and yet I will never be more than a family friend legally. It hurts. It hurts so bad.
