Masha Gessen,

Russian American Journalist & Lesbian on Marriage:

"Gay marriage is a lie.

Fighting for gay marriage generally involves lying about what we’re

going to do with marriage when we get there.

It’s a no-brainer that the institution of marriage should not exist.

Marriage equality’ becomes ‘marriageelasticity,’ with the ultimate

goal of ‘marriage extinction'.

See video at:

I have three kids who have five parents, more or less, and I don’t

see why they shouldn’t have five parents legally… I met my new

partner, and she had just had a baby, and that baby’s biological

father is my brother, and my daughter’s biological father is a man

who lives in Russia, and my adopted son also considers him his

father. So the five parents break down into two groups of three…

And really, I would like to live in a legal system that is capable of

reflecting that reality, and I don’t think that’s compatible with the

institution of marriage."
