The “Partnerization” of American Marriage

doj-pride

I remember being thrown for a loop the first time I saw UK husbands and wives referring and being referred to as “partners”. Now the asexualization of marriage is headed to the States.

Our sources have provided Liberty Counsel an internal DOJ document titled: “LGBT Inclusion at Work: The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Managers.” It was emailed to DOJ managers in advance of the left’s so-called “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Pride Month.”

The document is chilling. It’s riddled with directives that grossly violate – prima facie –employees’ First Amendment liberties.

“DO use inclusive words like ‘partner,’ ‘significant other’ or ‘spouse’ rather than gender-specific terms like ‘husband’ and ‘wife’.

Partner is only inclusive in bureaucratese. It excludes the relationships of most people and reduces them to the vaguest least defined possible entity.

But that is the whole point. Gay marriage isn’t about marriage. It’s another way that the left is upending and destroying social norms in order to be able to replace every aspect of human life with its own values and priorities.

The idea that gay marriage was ever going to exist on its own without interfering with normal human marriage was never anything more than a scam. The whole point of the gay marriage scam is to disrupt marriage, to attack it and then to eliminate it from the language.

    In order to argue for traditional marriage as opposed to same-sex marriage, we have to shift the argument from the (equality) needs of adult gays to the (parenting) needs of children. Children need both a mother and a father, and this is something a gay union can never give them.

    If the issue was only about joining two individuals contractually, nobody would have a problem with gay marriage. But when it comes to the issue of raising (adopted or donor-created) children by two same-sex parents do we have a true cultural shift, and its one that is already creating psychological issues for children raised in that kind of union. Men and women are undeniably different, and fathers and mothers provide different things to their children. On this issue, the gay marriage argument falls apart. Love is not all you need.

    By shifting the argument from the adults to the children, we have a winning argument for maintaining a cultural standard that has served humanity for thousands of years.

      There was a huge march in France against gay marriage and their main argument was the needs of children.

    Like many people I have zero problem with gay marriage.
    What I do have a problem with however is the abuse of the language–the idea that I can’t call my spouse “my wife” or my wife calling me her “husband” without running afoul of some directive is chilling.

    “Partners” was and is commonly used here to describe common law couples (heterosexual) who did not wish to enter into the contract of marriage.
