Redefining marriage won't satisfy gay rights activists; they want to redefine reality.
(Renew America) Segregating genders in marriage to suit the sexual attractions of less than 2% of the population isn't enough. This woman with same-sex attraction wants scientists to "try harder" and give "priority" to making it possible for two women to procreate. Michelle Cheever says: "I want to have babies the way straight people do."
What I mean is that I want the ease, the convenience, the — dare I say
it — naturalness that straight people have when starting a family. I
want both the simple beauty of two people loving each other so much that
they'd like to see more of the other in the world, and I want that
simple beauty to be translated into scientific terms of fairness:
chromosomes and DNA given in equal amounts from two parents.
The attitude I have always taken to having a baby with another woman has been this: "It's not fair! It's so hard! Why me?"
I am a total brat about what I consider a biological injustice. . .
Why can't my girlfriend and I have a baby that shares our DNA? Why can't an egg from each of us be scrambled up and sprinkled with sperm? It seems so easy! Try harder scientists! Make this a priority.
"Biological injustice"? What's next — are they going to sue their bodies for justice?
The problem with same-sex marriage is not that so-called anti-gay bigots oppose it. The challenge that gender segregationists face is their own biology, not hatred. SSM activists battle nature, not just culture. The problem is reality, not politics.
No matter how much we love our friends and relatives who have SSA, we cannot overcome the necessity for gender-integration in order to create the next generation.
If they truly do want to make babies the "way straight people do," using the "simple beauty" of "naturalness," instead of asking scientists to scramble their eggs, women with SSA could appeal to psychiatrists to try harder to discover therapies to redirect sexual orientation.
But for that to happen, gay rights activists might need to try harder to be open minded to the idea of change.
