well, so much for... **edit for those who were wondering**
...our friendship. My 'best friend' just got married. I didn't get a phone call, text, or email. I didn't get invited. She says I am like a sister to her, our daughters are like sisters, but I find out she got married via Facebook ten minutes ago.
I am pissed. And eating ice cream now.
Eta: it wasn't an elopement. her Mom posted reception pics on her Facebook- which is how I found out. All of her other friends are there.
EDIT: So, just got off of the phone with "bestie." We will no longer be friends. Her reason for not telling me or inviting me at all to her wedding was that her friends and family would not be "comfortable" having a person of color coming to their wedding, much less a woman of color married to a white man. She said she agrees with them. The woman who was in my wedding to the white man, agrees that it would have made her uncomfortable.
That's right folks, having a Mexican American woman and her white husband makes people uncomfy. Whatever works for them.
I don't even identify as "Mexican American." I am, simply, an American. My heritage just happens to be mexican, and I am proud of that. I was born and raised in Colorado. I got both of my degrees in Colorado. I am just a normal, average, everyday American - working hard for her future and the future of her progeny. What utter and complete bullshit.
