The SCOTUS is about to rule on two cases of gay marriage as a civil right. I wonder if will they listen to Masha Gessen before they make a decision.
Russian-American gay activist, Masha Alexandrovna Gessen, speaking at a conference in Sydney, Australia, said that she hates lying about the purpose of gay marriage which, she asserts, is to destroy the institution of marriage.
“Gay marriage is a lie, fighting for gay marriage generally involves lying about what we’re going to do with marriage when we get there.
But I also think equally that it’s a no-brainer that the institution of marriage should not exist. … ‘Marriage equality’ becomes ‘marriage elasticity,’ with the ultimate goal of ‘marriage extinction.’”
She then went on to describe how her children have five parents as the result of her first failed relationship and so on. [What a role model] She believes that, because of marriage, the legal system does not accommodate these types of relationships.
Of course she is wrong, there is nothing to legally stop her from destroying and confusing her children with endless parents. She can do whatever she wants. .
Her comments are interesting. Whenever objections are made to gay marriage because of the effect it will have on the institution of marriage, the commenters are shouted down, demeaned and called conspiratorial bigots.
Gessen is the editor of the Russian-language Snob magazine, a publication aimed at Russians living abroad, and has written several books, including “Perfect Rigour,” “Blood Matters” and “The Man Without a Face.”
She plans to write a book about the Tsarnaev brothers which will help us understand their cultural heritage and not present terrorists and Islam simplistically. She said she will, “reconstruct the struggle that ensued for each of the brothers between assimilation and alienation, and their metamorphosis into a new breed of home-grown terrorist, with their feet on American soil but their loyalties elsewhere, a split in identity that opened them to a deadly sense of mission.”
It will probably be a sympathetic portrait.
