Over the last few decades, there has been an influx of homosexual couples adopting children together. While the liberal agenda wants to paint this as the perfect example of the “modern” family, the children raised in those same-sex households do not always see the positive in the arrangement. Now one Australian woman, who was conceived by a sperm donor, speaks out about being raised by two lesbian mothers.
And she told reporters how she was deeply saddened not to have a father in her life. And now this woman, Millie Fontana, is calling for a plebiscite – or a direct vote by the people – on same-sex marriage. Because she believes the people of Australia will view the issue differently than the politicians in charge.
Back in 2015, Fontana came onto an episode of You Can’t Ask That and revealed her deep, dark secret about the negative aspect of children getting raised in same-sex households.
Ever since she was a child, she has desperately searched for a father figure. And because she didn’t have a dad, she had no way to “affirm a stable identity.” Being raised by her two lesbian mothers confused her and made her struggle to understand herself and her sexuality.
Because both of her mothers were feminine, Fontana yearned for someone that would do “dad things” with her like play “sports” or grill on the “barbeque.”
For the first decade of her life, Millie Fontana floundered with her identity. She wasn’t happy, and this vital connection was missing with her two lesbian mothers.
But on the day she met her father when she was 11, Millie finally felt a sense of happiness and stability. She realized she had been missing her father all along.
Below, you’ll hear Fontana deliver her 13-minute speech about the negatives of being raised by same-sex parents, in her case lesbians.
She claims her problem is “unheard of because nobody wants to hear about the other side of the rainbow.”
She goes on to reveal more darkness about her childhood.
“The side that is not catered for, that don’t grow up happy and grow up with a dissenting idea of what a family structure should be.
Her childhood yearning was simple, she “wanted a father.” But having two mothers didn’t allow her to “even articulate what a father was.”
She was deprived.
“I knew that I loved both of my parents but I could not place my finger on what it is I was missing inside myself. When I hit school I started to realise through observing other children and their loving bonds with their fathers that I really was missing out on something special.”
She told the host of You Can’t Ask That, “Having that understanding of who my father was would have benefited me to go into things like school…more confidently.”
Millie Fontana, a woman raised by two lesbian mothers, is against same-sex marriage in Australia.
“We [children of same-sex couples] want our mothers and fathers. I don’t understand why society is so fiercely rejecting such a natural concept that is acceptable in every other family structure.”
What do you make of her testimony?
