Genderless Marriage was legalised in Canada in 2005. Soon, babies born in Ontario will no longer be able to look at their Birth Certificate as a statement of biological fact, but rather a record of the adults ‘hanging around’ at the time that they were born.
Ontario’s government is about to remove the terms “mother” and “father” from provincial laws, while also raising the number of legal parents to four.
Bill 28 doesn’t require any record of biological parents, leaving children with no right to know which combination of the adults around them they are biologically related to.
The repercussions for future generations are immense – medical history, genealogy and identity are all stripped away, with no rights for children to access this information.
Advocates of Bill 28 claim it’s the next logical step after legalising gay ‘marriage.’ After all, granting same-sex couples the right to ‘marry and found a family’ isn’t possible without involving at least one more person.
You can’t have genderless marriage without genderless parenting, genderless education and inevitably, the commodification of children and state control over individuals when biological parents are no longer required to take responsibility for their young.
This is the ‘brave new world’ that awaits Australia if genderless marriage is legalised here.Share
