The Canadian is not the first to express this point of view in recent weeks.
A Canadian woman who was raised by a gay father who had multiple partners is speaking against same-sex marriage.
In a commentary piece for The Daily Signal last week, Dawn Stefanowicz, based out of London, Ontario, said it took her “decades” to formulate her views on same-sex marriage – up until her 30s.
She said her dad, an executive recruiter, gave her a “strong business ethic.” Still, he had multiple partners and died of AIDS in 1991. None of his partners, she writes, are alive today.
I was exposed to a lot of expressed sexuality in the home and subcultures. I experienced uncountable losses. Gender was supposed to be boundless; yet, I did not see my father and his partners valuing, loving and affirming women.
My father’s preference for one gender (male) created an inner sense of inequality for me.
