You think Lisa Miller, the “former” lesbian trying to deny visitation to her former partner, comes off selfish and vindictive? Try Sara Wheeler. This AP report tells the story:
Wheeler, 36, and her partner, Missy, decided to start a family together and share the Wheeler last name. In 2000, Sara Wheeler gave birth to a son, Gavin, through artificial insemination. Two years later, they decided Missy Wheeler should adopt the child and legally become his second parent.
Georgia law doesn’t specifically say whether gay parents can adopt a child, so the decision was up to a judge in the Atlanta area’s DeKalb County. After an adoption investigator determined that both partners wanted it, the judge cleared the request.
Eventually, the relationship went south. Why? Because Sara cheated on her partner. And now Sara is going to court and asking them to declare adoptions by gays illegal and therefore void the adoption of that child and deny Missy all parental rights. Thankfully, the courts rejected her argument:
It didn’t go so well. Her lawsuit seeking to throw out the adoption was rejected by the DeKalb County judge and then the state Court of Appeals.
Then the Georgia Supreme Court, in a 4-3 vote in February, declined to hear the case. Only months earlier the court had upheld the state’s constitutional ban on gay marriage, which Georgia voters overwhelmingly approved in 2004.
But here’s the really ridiculous part: she’s whining about how uncomfortable she now feels in the gay community after what she did:
Wheeler is coming to grips with the fact that she’s become an outcast for taking this step in a custody fight for her child. But she says that isn’t what her fight is about: “It’s about motherly rights.”…
Aside from a few gay friends, she has turned away from the gay community. She no longer dates, and doesn’t go to gay clubs or events any more. She said she is rethinking whether she is still a lesbian or whether she should abandon dating for good.
“I just don’t feel comfortable in that scene,” she says. “I’m just trying to figure it all out.”
She knows she’s seen as a betrayer; but in a sense, she feels she was the one betrayed.
“Before I’m anything — gay or lesbian — I’m a mother,” she says. “And the most important thing is to make sure my son has a relationship with his biological mother.”
What a selfish bitch. Your son already has a relationship with his biological mother and nothing could change that. But you’re trying to deny him a relationship with his non-biological mother, with whom your son bonded in a parent/child relationship for 4 years before your selfish actions destroyed that relationship. And now you want to destroy not only that parent/child relationship but all others in that state? And you have the nerve to whine about being an outcast? Go to hell, lady.
