    I used to make jokes that if god is punishing people by giving them AIDS, god must love lesbians the most since they're least likely to get AIDS (which, I gather, is true although there is some risk of transmission among lesbians).
    Now that daughter is a lesbian, I find it's really nice that I don't have to worry so much about either HIV or (ta dah!) accidental pregnancy!

      When queried about this seeming odd tack for a father to take I responded "I've yet to meet a pregnant teenage lesbian".

        I've noticed.   As an old lesbian auntie, I'm always being held up as a role model.
