Genderless Marriage a Step Backwards for Gender Equality


Tuesday,  8 March marks International Women's Day - a day to "celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women."

What many Genderless Marriage advocates refuse to acknowledge, is that their version of marriage is a giant leap backwards for Gender Equality. They are claiming that women are not important in the life of a family; that two men can easily replace a child's biological mother and in fact, that mothers are redundant.

Quite simply, you cannot be pro-“Marriage Equality” and pro-Gender Equality. The two concepts are mutually exclusive.

The International Women's Day website calls for ''gender-balanced leadership'' and so are we. Every family should have gender-balanced leadership from both a mother and a father. By engineering motherless families, as a society, we are denying equality for women at the very core of our society - the family unit.

So on this International Women's Day, we want to take a moment to acknowledge the unique and vital contribution that mothers make in the family and in particular, in the lives of their children. Mothers, we salute you!
