"I got some serious onbuhimo love. Every since my babies came home from the NICU at 4lbs, theyve been in their @nakedpandadesigns
onbuhimo and full buckle. The entire trip we walked around wearing our babies (protip: strollers make great storage buggies) and cuddling them."
____ "You guys are like celebrities," their godmother said as we walked around and everyone stared. And, I would like to say it was all good, but being a brown lesbian couple with twins has it's challenges. Yesterday they thought my wife was the help. When walking through the airport we got asked numerous times 'are they twins?' and we replied yes. They rapidly asked 'whos the mother?' in which I waiting replied, bubbly, 'we both are!'. At that point we got scowls or an 'oh' or just silence. We are both their mothers. The eggs to create these two humans came from my wife. They grew in my uterus. They are our children. People love twins. They absolutely adore them. But their love doesn't negate their homophobia or racism. This is our reality. Racism, homophobia, fetishism is something we encounter in our lives often. My baby, strapped to his Amma, has encountered what it feels like to be brown in America while going through TSA. Our babies are ten months old and have experienced so much microaggressions already to write a book. Starting in the NICU. And you know what? We will talk about it. It won't be something that we keep quiet about. Because all of our children deserve better than this.
