Homosexual Hate Campaign Targets a Woman who Doesn’t Know Her Place
I missed this amazing and sickening piece when it came out—written by Janna Darnelle, a wife and mother whose marriage ended when her former husband left her for a man—or really a string of men (see below on the nature of their alleged “marriage”).
A couple of quotations:
Try as I might to save our marriage, there was no stopping my husband. Our divorce was not settled in mediation or with lawyers. No, it went all the way to trial. My husband wanted primary custody of our children. His entire case can be summed up in one sentence: “I am gay, and I deserve my rights.” It worked: the judge gave him practically everything he wanted. At one point, he even told my husband, “If you had asked for more, I would have given it to you.”
I truly believe that judge was legislating from the bench, disregarding the facts of our particular case and simply using us—using our children— to help influence future cases. In our society, LGBT citizens are seen as marginalized victims who must be protected at all costs, even if it means stripping rights from others. By ignoring the injustice committed against me and my children, the judge seemed to think that he was correcting a larger injustice.
And then this:
My ex-husband and his partner went on to marry. Their first ceremony took place before our state redefined marriage. After it created same-sex marriage, they chose to have a repeat performance. In both cases, my children were forced—against my will and theirs—to participate. At the second ceremony, which included more than twenty couples, local news stations and papers were there to document the first gay weddings officiated in our state. USA Today did a photo journal shoot on my ex and his partner, my children, and even the grandparents. I was not notified that this was taking place, nor was I given a voice to object to our children being used as props to promote same-sex marriage in the media.
At the time of the first ceremony, the marriage was not recognized by our state, our nation, or our church. And my ex-husband’s new marriage, like the majority of male-male relationships, is an “open,” non-exclusive relationship.
Yeah, that’s the role model you want to have partial custody of your children. (Yes, they are his children too, but he left them and is only hanging on to them as set pieces for his fantasy role playing game.)
After our children’s pictures were publicized, a flood of comments and posts appeared. Commenters exclaimed at how beautiful this gay family was and congratulated my ex-husband and his new partner on the family that they “created.” But there is a significant person missing from those pictures: the mother and abandoned wife. That “gay family” could not exist without me.
As far as I know this story was ignored in the mainstream media. However, it was virulently attacked through the internet, and at the writer’s place of employment. Yesterday, this post was published at the Public Discourse blog of the Witherspoon Institute (which also published the original piece). It is a response to the hate campaign: “I will comment not only as a former child who was once all smiles in those pictures, but also as an academic, a woman, a mother, and a feminist.”
Here we learn that the un-named ex-husband and current sodomite put out his ex-wife’s full legal name on the internet so that she could be targeted for harassment.
For those of you who avoid the subterranean landscape of online same-sex parenting debates, it is useful to be introduced to Scott “Rose” Rosenzweig, a virulently misogynistic LGBT activist. As soon as Darnelle’s essay was published, Rose went into action, darting from the blog Good As You to other sites in an effort to destroy her personally. (Rose’s obsessive internet commenting has attracted attention at other news outlets as well.) […]
Janna Darnelle wrote under a pen name in order to protect her family. Unfortunately, her ex-husband’s comments helped Scott Rose embark on a campaign of harassment and intimidation.
Rose even contacted her employer to get her fired.
Sadly, all of this conforms to a predictable pattern of attack. If you study the routine that plays out whenever Jeremy Hooper and Scott Rose conspire to take someone out, you will see seasoned patterns. Four steps comprise their usual character assassination.
First, they call the individual a liar and say the person’s existence cannot be verified without more data about him or her. Second, once Hooper and Rose have such data, they write to the person’s employer to get him or her fired or professionally destroyed. Third, if they cannot get the person fired, Hooper and Rose go after the family members. Fourth, if they cannot turn the person’s family against him or her, Hooper and Rose blast endless broadsides against the person, trying to make him or her feel afraid or unsafe at all times.
I have only pointed to a small portion of this amazing expose. It demonstrates that the incredible hate and intolerance displayed by homosexuals in public is only a small part of what they are capable of.
This second piece is more than a report on homosexual hate; it also dissects the values embodied in male homosexual advocacy. For example:
The “unfit mother” trope is very important to men like Hooper and Rose, because it helps justify taking women’s children, eggs, or the use of their uteri. Darnelle is right. Many families headed by gay male couples are built upon exploitation of women. Practically speaking, Jeremy Hooper, Scott Rose, and their compatriots have formed a men’s rights group that seeks to use women as breeders. These egg donors and surrogate mothers supply infants for a bustling market full of same-sex couples, for whom reproduction is naturally and biologically impossible.
In the name of equality, groups such as GLAAD (which employs Jeremy Hooper) have pushed through gender identity laws that have legally erased women. The term “woman” now legally can refer to the way that a man chooses to identify himself. Once women have been erased legally as a group and as individuals, it is not hard to erase “mothers.” This lends support to the practice of using one woman’s eggs and another woman’s womb to supply children for gay male couples, obscuring the concept of motherhood and making it seem dispensable.
This is an interesting way to think of the phenomenon of men “coming out” after years of marriage, when a woman has lost her youth in part due to her willingness to bear a man’s children on the mistaken premise that he will stay true to her and them. He gets to satisfy the urge to reproduce and then goes off into a happy hunting ground of lawless sexual experiences. The ex-wife exists to give him the privilege of parenting part-time.
