Same-Sex Unions in Maryland “for the Kids”

  THIS maudlin Washington Post story, more editorial than balanced reporting, argues that the same sex “marriage” law on the Maryland ballot is in the interest of children, echoing the slogan used by Gov. Martin O’Malley, who says people should vote for homosexual unions “for the kids.” That’s right. The governor of Maryland believes that […]

Lesbian Chic

  AT Camera Lucida, Kidist Paulos Asrat explores the manly style of Jenna Lyons, president and creative director of the clothing retailer J. Crew. Lyons received widespread criticism for appearing in an ad earlier this year that showed her painting her young son’s toenails pink. She recently left her husband for a woman.

The Mother as Kidnapper

  WHAT CAN one say about a society in which a “family” court seriously entertains a child custody dispute between two women and then grants sole custody of the child to the non-mother, thus inciting the mother to flee with her daughter to a foreign country, risking arrest for kidnapping her own child and causing the Christian missionary who arranged […]

More on Lesbianism

  Dearest Wife, I am lesbian and conservative, (rather like Florence King, I suppose). I have spent some time pondering your thoughtful post titled “Why Lesbianism?” and have come to think that there is much truth in what you say. While once a man would be obliged by societal expectations to stay with his wife […]

Why Lesbianism?

  The growth in lesbianism is one of the least-discussed cultural changes of recent years. No society on earth has seen lesbians become more comfortably open with their way of life as ours. Why? Why are there more lesbians and why are their numbers almost certain to grow? The celebration of individual desire, the loss […]
