Experience is supposed to be top card over any and all facts. But what happens when experience blows holes in the activist narrative?
It doesn’t matter who you click with. That was what the airline put in their ads.
Homosexuals should be able to raise children. We’ve been told this for as long as same-sex relationships have been socially acceptable.
But did anybody ask what the CHILDREN thought about it?
One has finally spoken up. The keepers of the narrative will not like it.
We can probably expect her to be given the same rough treatment that other heretics against the cause — like Milo — are given.
So, while she still has a voice, let’s let hers be heard:
It’s her own personal story, after all. By the rules of the game as the Left has been playing it, ‘who can judge her for her own story’?
[Heather]Barwick, who is 31 now, married, and has four children, said that “same-sex marriage and parenting withholds either a mother or father from a child while telling him or her that it doesn’t matter. That it’s all the same. But it’s not.”
“A lot of us, a lot of your kids, are hurting,” wrote Barwick in her essay for The Federalist website. “My father’s absence created a huge hole in me, and I ached every day for a dad. I loved my mom’s partner, but another mom could never have replaced the father I lost.”
“I grew up surrounded by women who said they didn’t need or want a man,” said Barwick. “Yet, as a little girl, I so desperately wanted a daddy. It is a strange and confusing thing to walk around with this deep-down unquenchable ache for a father, for a man, in a community that says that men are unnecessary.”
She used to be an advocate of same-sex marriage. So she isn’t motivated by disdain for same-sex relationships. She’s backing a different cause now.
“Gay marriage doesn’t just redefine marriage, but also parenting,” she says. “It promotes and normalizes a family structure that necessarily denies us something precious and foundational. It denies us something we need and long for, while at the same time tells us that we don’t need what we naturally crave. That we will be okay. But we’re not. We’re hurting.”
…”It’s not just me,” said Barwick. “There are so many of us. Many of us are too scared to speak up and tell you about our hurt and pain, because for whatever reason it feels like you’re not listening. That you don’t want to hear.”
“If we say we are hurting because we were raised by same-sex parents, we are either ignored or labeled a hater,” she wrote.
Now she’s an advocate of Children’s rights. She’s also married and a mother of four.
Buckle up, Heather. It looks like you’ll be in for a rough ride.

Your story is one worth sharing.
ClashDaily.com’s, Editor-In-Chief, Doug Giles how-to book:
In ‘Raising Righteous and Rowdy Girls’, Doug Giles reinforces the notion that little women don’t need to be pampered by their fathers to turn out right. And having met his beautiful daughters, I know his philosophy works. As a strong-willed woman who thinks her daddy is the greatest guy in the world, I can tell you this is a must-read for every man who hopes to earn the same title. —-S.E.
