H/T to Mollie Hemingway, who also offers these astute observations:
Believing — by science, religion or otherwise — that all humans are made male and female and that the regeneration of humans requires the joining together of male and female is — as we all know — grounds for being openly derided, called names and generally marginalized. If you think the foundational unit of society is defined in terms of this reality, you’re basically the Ku Klux Klan. You might protest that you have reason, logic, science, tradition, or any number of things to appeal to. But we all know you’re really a bigot.Meanwhile, from the newsroom of NBC (Surprise! Surprise! Surprise!) another example of the utter absurdity of this social novelty called gay "marriage."
Mostly the media and other cultural elites know this. And they’re not afraid to point out that believing marriage is an institution based on sexual orientation like they do — as opposed to sexual complementarity — makes you a good person who believes in civil rights and other things on the side of angels. Not like those bad folks whose arguments can be dismissed without even so much as looking them over (do you give bigots the time of day? No you do not! Ignore them already!). Journalists at CNN and the Washington Post and the New York Times and NPR have all agreed — or at least pondered the approach as legitimate — these monsters don’t deserve fair treatment, inclusion in stories, or airing for their warnings.
Error has no rights, you know. The genders are 100% interchangeable and we will make sure you agree! Are we getting tired of this media treatment yet?
It’s been a busy week for NBC’s Jenna Wolfe.
The correspondent and weekend anchor for the “Today” show announced during Wednesday’s show that she’s gay, as well as pregnant. Now she’s announcing plans to marry her partner, NBC News correspondent Stephanie Gosk.
And one more news flash: They’re expecting a girl.
“This is the most exciting thing that has ever happened to us,” Miss Wolfe said, according to People magazine. “But I don’t want to bring my daughter into a world where I’m not comfortable telling everyone who I am and who her mother is.”Anybody care to venture a guess as to how they were finally able to pull off "Operation Baby?" Three guesses, and the first two don't count -- especially if they don't involve the participation of, how shall I say it, a member of the opposite sex.
Miss Wolfe, 39, and Miss Gosk, 40, have been together for three years, People reports. They wanted to start a family last year, but had difficulty conceiving.
“We were constantly on the road, juggling a thousand balls at once,” Miss Wolfe said. “It’s a miracle we got it all together.”
But late last year, they prioritized family above career and “embarked on Operation Baby,” Miss Wolfe said. She is due to deliver at the end of August.
