American by Birth

(This is just a quick note. I hadn’t meant to comment on this, but it still irks me. Therefore do I have to comment.)

It never ceases to amaze me how sexist people really are. You’re surely heard all the debate about how Barack Obama isn’t a “natural born citizen” because his father is Kenyan. What both amuses and irritates me about that is twofold.

First, his mother is American, whether anyone likes it or not. That makes him a natural born citizen by definition.

Second, you might have heard the expression “Mommy’s baby, Daddy maybe”? For those of you who haven’t, it means that the paternity of a child may always be questioned, but a momma knows what child she’s “birthed”, to paraphrase Prissy.

He’s American, y’all. Get over it.
