Unlike real families, a same sex couple can’t have children. Whether they are two men or two women, they can only have children by in some way acquiring rights over a child who was produced by no more than one of them. I know this is hard to believe, but children can only come into being through a mother and a father. So for a same sex couple to “have” a child, someone had to have their parental rights terminated. Same sex couples having children are inherently parasitic to heterosexual couples.
Thus, we are entering an age of bizarre and painful conflicts as homosexual couples strive to make themselves into families.
The Telegraph reports one such instance: “Sperm deal children ‘irredeemably marred’ by four-parent feud.”
Two young girls born through an informal sperm donation deal between a gay couple and a lesbian couple have been scarred for life by a bitter six-year feud after their two fathers and two mothers fell out, a judge has warned.
Mr Justice Cobb, said the girls, aged nine and 13, described by teachers as polite and highly intelligent, had seen their childhoods “irredeemably marred” by living through what was arguably the most “bruising and distressing” case he had ever been involved in.
The parents, who were also described as intelligent and sophisticated, had also paid a “high psychological price”, he said – particularly the girls’ biological mother who descended into serious mental health problems, which he said was undoubtedly worsened by the stress of the case.
But he said the emotional and psychological wreckage “illustrates all too clearly” the problems “unleashed” by such informal arrangements between friends or acquaintances.
Details of the case are disclosed in a lengthy judgment from the High Court Family Division published online as the judge ruled that the six-year contact dispute between the two couples must end because of the damage it was doing to their daughters.
It discloses that the couples, who are both separately in civil partnerships, ran up more than half a million pounds in legal costs in a case involving more than 30 separate court orders and a string of judges.
The judge ruled that the girls should remain living with the mothers – despite serious problems at home including domestic violence between the two women at times – because to move the children would have an even more “devastating” effect on them.
He ruled that the mothers would be supervised by social services and that the fathers would have contact with the younger daughter – known as B – but only write to the older girl – known as A – because she had become convinced she did not want to see them.
So if you want to know who benefits from same sex “marriage,” here it is: same sex couples trying to build families are going to make a paradise for social services and lawyers.
Adoption can be a wonderful thing. But it came from imitating, and is thus based upon, the biological reality of sexual reproduction. When you remove that basis, and venture off into the fantasy that a same sex couple is no different than a heterosexual couple, the resulting family is seen as nothing but the creation of legal contrivances of the state. As such, it requires total control on the part of bureaucrats and judges.
