We're All Mad

There are days--and days upon days--that we who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, and trans parents are simply living in a world that seems daffier, weirder, stranger, sillier, and madder than those who are straight.

I read this from "Alice in Wonderland," a story line between the Cheshire Cat and Alice:

'In that direction,' the Cat said, waving its right paw round, 'lives a Hatter: and in that direction,' waving the other paw, 'lives a March Hare. Visit either you like: they're both mad.'
'But I don't want to go among mad people,' Alice remarked.
'Oh, you ca'n't help that,' said the Cat: 'we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad.'
'How do you know I'm mad?' said Alice.
'You must be,' said the Cat, 'or you wouldn't have come here'.

Ah, it is good to know that we have company some times!
