Gay activist Masha Gessen speech for viral, ‘gay marriage is a lie’ and calls for end to ‘marriage’

A 2012 speech by Masha Gessen, activist for the gay community, is viral across the Internet, as she states the gay marriage agenda is a lie and calls for an end to the institution of marriage and redefining the “traditional family.”

Gay pride american flag“Gay marriage is a lie,” Gessen is heard saying in the video.

“Fighting for gay marriage generally involves lying about what we’re going to do with marriage when we get there,” she added.

“It’s a no-brainer that the institution of marriage should not exist,” she said to loud applause.

“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,” she said.

Gessen, a lesbian and a journalist, spoke frankly about this at a conference in Sydney, Australia, wrote: “It’s a no-brainer that we should have the right to marry,’ she said. ‘But I also think equally that it’s a no-brainer that the institution of marriage should not exist. … ‘Marriage equality’ becomes ‘marriage elasticity,’ with the ultimate goal of ‘marriage extinction.’ ”

Gessen is the editor of the Russian-language Snob magazine, a publication aimed at Russians living abroad, and has written several books, including “Perfect Rigour,” “Blood Matters” and “The Man Without a Face.”

  13. CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON says:

    RECENTLY, WHBQ-Fox 13 IN MEMPHIS REPORTED A lesbian couple IN SOUTHAVEN, MISSISSIPPI WANTS A DIVORCE. THIS COUPLE WAS MARRIED IN CALIFORNIA AND WANTS THE COURT SYSTEM IN MISSISSIPPI TO END A MARRIAGE WHICH WAS NEVER RECOGNIZED IN MISSISSIPPI. A FEW WEEKS EARLIER, Fox 13 REPORTED A gay-male couple IN MEMPHIS WENT TO THE SHELBY-COUNTY COURTHOUSE IN AN ATTEMPT TO OBTAIN A MARRIAGE LICENSE.

    MY POINT IS, THESE TWO CASES ILLUSTRATE THE SLICK TACTICS gay-rights activists USE FOR CREATION OF “TEST CASES.” The lesbian couple IN MISSISSIPPI WANTS TO SHOW A FINANCIAL HARDSHIP BY RETURNING TO CALIFORNIA FOR A DIVORCE; AND, the gay-male couple IN MEMPHIS WANTS TO CREATE THE “MIRAGE” THAT LARGE NUMBERS OF gay couples IN TENNESSEE ARE REFUSED MARRIAGE LICENSES. BUT, TENNESSEE STILL SAYS, “NO!”

    I JUST VIEWED TWO NATIONALLY KNOWN gay websites. I COULD NOT FIND AN ONLINE ARTICLE ABOUT THE Mississippi lesbians.
