Lesbian trio: The next step in redefining marriage? / “For Life” magazine no. 3 – Fall 2014
After an article by Ben Johnson, LifeSiteNews.com
Three lesbians who were all “married” together in the American state of Massachusetts announced this April “their” first baby. Natural marriage promoters warn that states that chose to redefine marriage so as to include same-sex couples have gone on a slippery slope. If one redefines this institution according to how somebody choses to subjectively identify oneself, we might end up legalizing not only same-sex “marriage”, but also polygamous “marriage”.
The three American lesbians, Doll, 30, Brynn, 32, and Kitten, 27, have organized a wedding ceremony in which they exchanged vows among themselves, despite the fact that there is no law in the state of Massachusetts to recognize legal status for such a ceremony.
Legally speaking, the ceremony is valid only between Brynn and Kitten. Doll only swore to be faithful to the other two. “We had specialist lawyers draw up paperwork so our assets are equally divided,” Brynn said.
The women define their relationship as a “throuple”, the English-language equivalent of the word “couple”, except that it designates a relationship between three persons. Each of the brides was led to the open-air altar by her father. It was Kitten’s idea, who said she was raised in a traditional way, which made her see marriage as “an important symbol of commitment”.
Brynn, a web designer, was prepared to work 40 hours a week to bring money in the house, Doll was to cook, and Kitten would do the cleaning and child bearing.
At the date of their interview, which was published in video format by dailymail.co.uk, Kitten announced she was already 20 weeks pregnant with a baby conceived through IVF, with sperm from an anonymous donor. She was hoping to give birth to three babies, one for each of the three members of their “romantic committee”, as Brynn called it.
Defenders of same-sex “marriage” have always rejected the argument that, once the sexual complementarity requirement removed from the definition of marriage, the door will open for other redefining processes, which could lead to the destruction of the monogamous structure of marriage. Dr Jennifer Roback Morse, founder of the US Ruth Institute, an organization dedicated to supporting natural family and helping what they call “the victims of sexual revolution”, stated for LifeSiteNews.com: „ We have been saying for some time that once you remove the gender requirement there is no reason for marriage to be confined to only two people”.
This media stunt, just like the “LGBT-rights” movement, promotes the rights of people inclined to polygamy.
Brynn, one of the lesbians from Massachusetts, has said: “Polyfidelity is not something that is seedy or something that’s meant to be hidden away. It can be a perfectly acceptable and functional choice of life and love”. She was married to other two women before and now she wants society to recognize the same status for the type of relation she symbolically made official with the actual two women: „ We are simply people trying to live the life that we feel is best for us and we deserve the rights afforded to others”.
In fact, in 2012, at the Sidney Writers Festival, lesbian author Masha Gessen admitted that those who fought for gay marriage lied and manipulated in order to destroy the way we understand today the notion of marriage: “Fighting for gay marriage generally involves lying about what we are going to do with marriage when we get there — because we lie that (the institution of marriage) is not going to change, and that is a lie. The institution of marriage is going to change, and it should change. And again, I don’t think it should exist”.
About the lesbian trio from Massachusetts, Dr Roback Morse, from the Ruth
Institute, has made a prediction: “Within
five years of the birth of the baby this relationship will be in complete
shambles. Every adult knows that when you place a baby into a mother’s arms
that many things change in ways that she could not predict”.
Dr Roback Morse further explained: “I have read many lesbian custody cases,” she said. “Reading between the lines, what I see is that the mother cannot quite accept the idea that her child will call somebody else mommy. The mother thinks she is the one and only mother. She has more trouble than she expected sharing the care of her child with another woman”.
Unfortunately, another one o Dr Morse’s predictions is that, in case of custody trial, the law will favor the two women who are NOT biological mothers of the child (ed. note: Basically, because, as specified above, the Massachusetts law only recognizes now the partnership between Brynn and Doll. Kitten, whose role is to do the household chores and bear the baby, is left out.) “Much to the detriment of the child”, added Dr Roback Morse.
