I love "Sex and the City". I even have the pink collectors edition of every single episode. I have the collectors edition of the movie (even though it kind of sucked). I love the character of Stanford Blatch.
But Willie Garson???
He's an asshole.
I read this on People.com the other day and was horrified by it. As if we adoptive parents (which I often forget I am) don't have enough shit to deal with and people thinking our kids are not our "real" kids, the dip shit has to say this?
With his heart set on a toddler, Garson, 45, was taken by surprise upon meeting Nathan during an adoption fair in Los Angeles. "It's like a pet fair – as horrifying as you can imagine," he recalls. "It was really hard. The 16-year-old fat, ugly kid, who has probably been to 30 of these, knows he's not going to get adopted. Like everything, cute wins." To that end, Garson was shocked that his son was still in the system. "I couldn't believe my kid was actually available for adoption," says the doting dad. "He's so cute and sweet."
You can read the whole article here but what I posted above is what really pissed me off.
Likening adoption to a "pet fair" is so horrific I don't even know where to begin. I still get asked if I picked out Valentina from a book. Yeah, the Guatemala 2007 catalog had a great selection! Give me a fucking break. Willie GAGson just sent the adoptive community back to the stone age.
I will admit, I am the most UN-PC person but still. A PET FAIR? And the quote about the "16 year old fat, ugly kid". Way to really respect children, asshole. The man isn't fit to adopt an animal much less a human being given his narrow minded view of things.
Willie Garson? I will not hesitate to lower myself to your level to say you are a despicable, arrogant, fucking idiot.
