Are you confused about gender roles? Join the club! Here all this time, we thought it was about orientation, but it ended up being more about disorientation!
Today we are honored to have Patrick Henry College professor, Stephen Baskerville. Stephen Baskerville is currently the Director of the International Politics & Policy program at Patrick Henry College, is an American scholar of political science, and is a leading authority on divorce, child custody and the family court system. Stephen comes to us today to discuss his newest book, The New Politics of Sex: The Sexual Revolution, Civil Liberties, and the Growth of Governmental Power.
This story turned out to be the perfect way to give some unwanted publicity to the gamete selling industry. In case you missed the story, two women, living a aberrant lifestyle tried to prove they could bear children and made an offer to purchase genetic material from the same anonymous donor. Due to an error in reading the handwriting, they were sold material from Donor # 330 instead of Donor # 380. The results proved that it’s not a good idea to try to fool mother nature. The mother is now trying to sue the vendor for the hardship she has incurred from the fact that her child has some of her father’s features.
One goal of feminism is to prove the interchangeability of the genders. If women are trying to make a point that there is no difference between men and women, they run into a few difficulties.
The idea that gender is interchangeable fails abruptly when it comes to bringing children into the world. Women cannot reproduce without men and men cannot reproduce without women. That’s a biological fact.
This presents a problem for those who want to normalize perversion. Some want to pretend to be married and exert themselves attempting to mimic a natural family. To make up for the obvious biological roadblock, these people have turned to fertility clinics to buy the missing parts from strangers.
People in America seem more confused today about marriage than ever before in history.
What is a family? On today’s episode of Home Front we discuss some of the most basic human needs, feminism, shacking up, even how prisoners of war are treated. It all comes out in our conversation with one of America’s formost experts on the family.
