We live in an interesting world. If someone tells others that she is having a baby, that is perfectly acceptable, but if she tells others that she has a gay husband, she is sharing information that is too personal and therefore creates an awkward situation.
The interesting thing is that the first statement lets the person know immediately that the pregnant one has had sex, but the other statement just mentions a characteristic that really does not have much to do with sex and definitely does not guarantee the behavior.
It is subsequently very amusing when someone has been told the second item, and then is told the first item. One can watch the confusing thoughts going through the someone's head by the look on their face as they apparently put the two statements together and try to process them.
(Add a third detail that the gay husband had a vasectomy a year ago, and then either the woman's morality is questioned, or immediately God enters the picture, because it could not happen otherwise. In this case, it can only be a miracle, or as Scott prefers to think of it, extremely bad luck. :)
I told Scott he should explore this interesting topic further on his blog sometime...
P.S. Baby is due at the end of June. Only 31 more long and excruciating weeks to go. ugh.
