She Went by ‘Daddy’
National Review (Corner) ^ | 6/27/11 | Glenn T. Stanton

Posted on 06/27/2011 11:04:45 AM PDT by madprof98

My daughter and I were in Manhattan over this weekend so I could do some research at the Met. Waves of people were coming into the city for Sunday’s big gay-pride march, where they could celebrate the Empire State’s new same-sex-marriage law. We sat behind some of them on the train, three young women with a precious, excited toddler girl in tow. The very evident leader of the clan was the patriarch. Adorned as if she might be an actor portraying a hip-hop teen from Cleveland, she had her meticulous corn-rows tucked under a backwards navy-blue flat-billed ballcap, a matching wife beater revealing a mural of tats on her arms, shoulders, and back. Baggy jeans rode low, leading to her construction boots with untied laces dangling free.

She was the only one of the adult threesome that interacted with the child, mindlessly uttering reassuring words like “Daddy will be right back” or “Sit over here by Daddy.”

You see, this is one of the things that most concerns me about the legal institutionalization of genderless marriage and parenting. We are told that nothing will really change with such laws; people who really love each other will just be able to enter really meaningful, legally protected relationships.

But, to use the language of our women’s-studies scholars, such a turn “does violence” to our concept of sex difference. They would have us believe that their way of looking at the world transcends the “narrow” confines of socially constructed gender difference, but these very folks end up playing to those very confines, usually in comically stereotypical ways. Think drag queen in her everyday clothes, like our Urban Outfitters dad on the train.

And while this adorable little girl on the train got to call one of her parents “Daddy,” did she really have a daddy? Well, her DNA would prove that she does somewhere, but in reality she only has a woman playing make-believe daddy, and like make-believe games, it’s all about the world this woman has created in her mind for her own imaginary fun and games. One problem: There’s a little toddler as one of the props.

Gender does matter for marriage, the family, and society, and those trying to teach us that it doesn’t can’t help but default to the very thing they are trying to overthrow.

This is the primary fallacy of the legislation New York just passed — not in theory, but in the reality of this little girl and her “daddy” on the train at Penn Station.

The comments that follow this little anecdote are very instructive. Conservative blogs are being overwhelmed by commentators claiming that opposition to gay marriage is worse than racism.

Lesbianism and gay marriage are just an excuse for people to be fat and unattractive.
Two ugly heifers approve of their appearance and could not care less what others think.
We are doomed as a society with this garbage.

Many right here on FReep say social issues are unimportant; that all that matters is the economy and national security.

They are 100% wrong. Social issues are tearing this nation apart.

That is such a broad brush you just used and entirely unfair. I know a lot of fat, “unattractive” women and they are not lesbians. Fat does not equal lesbian, neither does unattractive...what is unattractive to you, may be beautiful to someone else. Totally unfair...

Your comment is 100% correct regarding comments on conservative sites. There is an orchestrated effort by the left to overwhelm these comments on all blogs to put forth the image that their beliefs are the majority beliefs. If we as conservatives do not actively start fighting back on this type of non-sense, we will indeed see a very scary change in the structure and look of this country.

Its all about perception, whether we like it or not!!!!!

So, what is to stop two siblings of the same sex from being “married” in NY? Just wait, more freaks will enter the societal stage and demand that siblings and first cousins should be allowed to marry. Don’t think it will happen? Well, 20 years ago, few thought that any state would have “Gay Marriage.”

What I have trouble understanding is why would another Lesbian be attracted to a Lesbian who has done all she can to look and act like a man.

It would seem to me like the act of getting fat and mean, cutting off their hair, and getting mannish tattoo’s, like most Bull Dykes do would be a turn-off for Lesbians.

If they want what looks and acts like a man, why not get a man. Are they sinply frightened of the Penis? I mean that is the only thing these Dykes don’t have.

Yes I know there are many Lesbians who are good looking and have good looking Girlfriends, but I believe these are the ones who ar playing at it, and will eventually go back to being women.

I had the unfortunate timing 30 years ago to take my family on a tour of New York City the day of the Gay Pride Parade. I lived in New Jersey and had no idea what a Gay Pride Parade was. It was like a costume party times two, with men dressed up as women, men wearing nothing but tight short leather shorts, men with leashes on, non stop public display of affection/grouping/touching. I thought I was in a different country. That was 30 yrs ago, I can’t even imagine what they do today....

Actually, long before feminism it was appropriate to refer to both men and women as “an actor”.

Much the same way both men and women are “a musician” or “a painter”.

Not always fat. Look at Rachel Madcow.

I don't know what it is, but from what I've seen with gay men, there's usually a dysfunctional relationship with their mothers. Maybe its the same thing with women and their fathers?

State law question, but I’m unaware of any state that permits marriage within the third degree of consanguinity (first cousins).

I have encountered hundreds of queer men and women while working in emergency medicine. The vast majority are on medicaid and social security disability for for such terribly disabling conditions as “bi-polar disorder” of “fibromyalgia” for which there are no definitive tests, just some quack’s “opinion” will do.

The libs are defining deviancy as normal because they have no concept of right or wrong.

I really don't care what people do in private, but I just don't get the 'Gay Pride' thing. You're 'proud' because you insert your erect penis in another man's rectum for pleasure? That's really something to be 'proud' about? It sounds equally silly for a heterosexual man to claim 'pride' because he inserts his erect penis into a woman's vagina for pleasure.

Gimme a break - if being homosexual floats your boat, fine - knock yourself out. But spare me the 'pride', please.

Gender Free = Child Abuse as far as I’m concerned.

The flip side of the moms trying to relive their glory days by turning their pre-teens into beauty queen sluts (JonBenet Ramsey et. al.). They are, respectively, promoting far advanced sexuality in a young child, and denying the natural development of a sexual identity. It's abuse, for sure.

I read this article with a mix of amusement, disgust and sadness at what our society is permitting itself to become. The shocking thing about it is that it is no longer shocking at all. It seems that we are losing our capacity for horror: as though it were perfectly natural for a little girl to be raised by women without husbands, or men without wives, but by chance strangers whose attraction is not romantic love but unnatural compulsion.

And we see it all going by, the Freak Parade whose marchers grow progressively more misshapen and bizarre with each passing year, and just shake our heads and doubt there's anything we can do about it.

Imagine it is 1967 and you pick up a magazine and open it and read the very same story (as appears in NRO). What would have been your reaction? Disbelief? Disgust? Horror? Would you flip the magazine over to see if you had accidentally happened upon some seedy, underground counter-culture rag? Would you have felt a sudden impulse to wash your hands?

Whatever your visceral reaction, you likely would have felt as though you were reading about somewhere other than America, or perhaps about some hellish, future dystopic version of it. They always said Satan would lower our standards bit by bit, so gradually that we would not see it coming. Welcome to Hell.

“So, what is to stop two siblings of the same sex from being “married” in NY?”

Nothing. All those that supported two men or women cant legally justify any other “pairing” of whatever not being able to do the same thing.

Polygamist? Bigamist? People marrying a child, dog, or their shadow?

What are they going to say, that those are weird or gross?

I know guy who’s quite the lefty. He has a son, and the mother of that son divorced him and went lesbian. The month raised the son for much of the time until fairly recently when custody was given to the father. He’s married with a second wife.

Everyone in that household is a die-hard leftist.

They also clearly know it, without ever admitting it, that the lesbians raising the son was very bad for him. In fact that son can’t stand his real mother at all these days.

I’m also willing to bet every deluded member of that household would be in favor of gay marriage and adoption.

Funny how ideology can drive out even the evidence in front of your face.

Firstly, “sows” is more descriptive than “heifers”.

Secondly, only the garbage is doomed.

Thirdly, the spawn of the garbage is likely doomed.

Lastly, reality is about descend on such sows when their freebie culture ends and they have to live the reality of “Root hog, or die.”

The heavy emphasis on pride is a DEVICE:

I think gay men become more and more impressed with the transiency of their relationships. This fills them with a gnawing awareness that that might not be ultimately healthy, good, or what they’re actually looking for.

This causes growing awareness generates uneasiness, leading to a counter-reaction, thus the emphasis on not just DOING those gay things, but doing then, and then also later being really PROUD OF IT, thereby diminishing the unease.

So it’s a coping mechanism to stay gay and doing gay things.

Greetings dragonbuster:

with gay men, there's usually a dysfunctional relationship with their mothers.

Interesting, I was thinking 180 degrees from that assessment.

Last week, we purchased an used vehicle from an Illinois homosexual union couple. Right. Both men had their names on the title. Anyway, we finished business over coffee in their living room. Each "partner" directed our attention to a beautiful portrait of their mother upon the wall. Nothing father openly displayed in the home.

Nice people. Clean. Probably would be great neighbors. Watch my grandchildren? No way.

Cheers,
OLA

It's tempting to think that there is still a real America someplace else, someplace where this could not happen. (The Midwest? The South?) But thanks to modern communication conrolled by a relatively small elite, we have an increasingly homogeneous (no pun intended) culture now in which every schoolchild knows that (s)he must respond to scenes like this with the mantra, "Who are we to judge?"
