Does political correctness have a peak? Is there a summit to absurdity? A day barely goes by without some sort of bastardization of the language, or an assault on our institutions. Many are flabbergasted at this Cat in the Hat culture that has turned common sense into a Dr. Seuss caricature.
There is a glimmer of light peeking through the clouds. A feminist icon has taken a stand on the definition of motherhood. Here is an excerpt from Brietbart.com:
Feminist commentator Germaine Greer has criticised Elton John for calling his partner David Furnish “mother” of their two sons.
Speaking at the Hay Literary Festival, Greer accused the men of “deconstructing motherhood”, criticising them for the fact that Furnish was listed as mother on their children’s birth certificates.
“Sometimes I think that really the problem is the concept of motherhood, which we can’t give any real structure to,” she said.
“Sir Elton John and his ‘wife’ David Furnish have entered on the birth certificate of their two sons that David Furnish is the mother. I’m sorry. That will give you an idea of how the concept of motherhood has emptied out. It’s gone, it’s been deconstructed.”
the couple’s children were born with the help of IVF treatment and share the same surrogate mother, who John and Furnish claim they “love like a sister”.
Progressives created this mess. They need to sweep up this nonsense and put everything back in its proper place.
