Children of a lesser God .....
Posted March 16th, 2015
Dear Domenico Dolce,
I am a Mother of two "synthetic children" born with the help of science, those children who, in your opinion, don't have the right to exist in this world, at least in the "natural" world decribed by yourself as ideal, with the ostentatious complacency of someone convinced, looking down at others with his extravagance and unwavering (sigh), to broadcast lessons of morality, socialogy and even psychology.
There are thousands of famous Mothers, (Celine Dion, Mariah Carey, Nicole Kidman, Sarah Jessica Parker, Brooke Shields, Emma Thompson, Christie Brinkley, Jennifer Lopez, not to mention, the "inspirational muse" of your collections) and not, who, are thankful to MODERN SCIENCE to be able to have their wishes granted by becoming Mothers and bestow their "Motherly Love".
Not a single one of them "convinces" you?
You see, my dear Domenico, my life has never been down a "natural route", but on the contrary, it has been a clear example of out of ordinary, exceptional and non-traditional.
I lived without a Father untill I was 28 years old. My sister has a different Father and I have four children by three different men. Not exactly a "traditional" family and certainly not a "Sacred Family".
Family is a fundamental institution in each and every human society. However, despite its universality or just for this reason, it takes and it always has taken, an extraordinary variety of forms, as in different social, cultural and historical contexts.
To repeat in your words, but in a totally opposite way of how you feel, the meaning of family CAN "change" from time to time.
Even the composition of "family" can be different.
In the history of humanity as well as in the history of more than 1,500 other animal species in our world, there are plenty of examples of parental behaviour within homosexual couples. They aren't better or worse than heterosexual couples. They are different colours upon the same rainbow.
Families aren't a question of "nature", but a social installment, as in any other institution.
There is no such thing as "chemical children" or children of a lesser God .... There are only CHILDREN.
