Karen Rosewood and her infant daughter, Sequoia Rosewood, go for a stroll at Fall Creek in Felton in 1991, months after Sequoia's birth through artificial insemination.The print edition of the Santa Cruz Sentinel has this headline:
‘Sense of closure’Did you jump to the conclusion that Karen Rosewood is the mother, but the father got custody of the girl in a divorce?
Woman to adopt 21-year-old daughter who was ‘placed in the custody of the wrong parent’
Not even close. Rosewood was not the mom. The dad was a sperm donor, and is not in the picture. The daughter is now 21, and complains:
“I grew up in such a fragmented way that in some way, it does feel like I don’t have parents,” she said Tuesday.That's what happens when a girl is raised by lesbians. She never sees her dad, and always feels as if something is missing.
The article goes on to say that the girl is "being adopted by her mother" so that she can get an Obamacare health insurance policy. No, she is not being adopted by her mother. Her mother is already her mother and no adoption is needed. She is being adopted by a lesbian who never had any legal or biological connection.
The liberal news media is determined to normalize lesbianism. Astronaut Sally Ride's obituary had this hidden teaser:
Dr. Ride married a fellow astronaut, Steven Hawley, in 1982. They decorated their master bedroom with a large photograph of astronauts on the moon. They divorced in 1987. Dr. Ride is survived by her partner of 27 years, Tam O’Shaughnessy; her mother, Joyce; and her sister, Ms. Scott, who is known as Bear. (Dr. O’Shaughnessy is chief operating officer of Dr. Ride’s company.)That could mean that the women were just business partners, but Ride is now being hailed as the first lesbian in space. That logic is dubious, as she was married to a man during her two space flights in 1983 and 1984. (She wasn't the first woman in space, as a couple of Russians preceded her.) I don't think that we have any confirmation that Ride actually had sexual relations with O’Shaughnessy. Maybe the cosmic rays in outer space sapped her sex drive.
I don't care about Ride's private life, but it is wrong for newspapers to marginalize parents in this way. Obviously they are trying to promote lesbianism but that is no excuse to try to redefine common English words like "mother" and to ignore fathers.
