OK, if you’re a naïve rube like me you might ask yourself what is a “throuple?” It turns out it’s a relatively new word formed by the blending of “three” and “couple” and it means “a long-term sexual relationship between three people” per a new entry into the Macmillan Dictionary. They must be ahead of the cultural curve from Webster’s.
You would think that the culture couldn’t sink any lower. Every day this absurdity of changing one’s gender identity takes deeper root. Today we were informed that a biological male (is there really any other kind?) will be competing against women in the Olympic trials.
A biologically male marathon runner who identifies as a transgender woman is set to compete in the USA Olympic trials later in February.
Megan Youngren “is set to make history on Feb. 29 as the first openly transgender athlete to compete at the U.S. Olympic marathon trials,” Sports Illustrated reported. Youngren qualified for the trials after a strong performance on Dec. 8, 2019 in the California International Marathon.
This after two men—supposedly spouses—kissed on stage after one was participating in a presidential debate for the United States Presidency. No matter what is written on paper or declared legal Petey and Chasten do not form a marriage. But the culture has decided they do.
As if all this wasn’t spinning a conservative’s head around faster than a demonic possession in a movie, we now have throuples being endorsed on television.
The HGTV show House Hunters featured its first “Throuple”, or polyamorous couple, on its show Wednesday night.
A “Throuple” is a relationship made up of three people. In this case, two women and a man named Lori, Geli, and Brian. The couple has two children, who are biologically related to Brian and Lori.
In the episode, the trio describes their ideal home as one that has a three-car garage, a master bedroom that fits three people, and room for the two children. While looking at a house’s kitchen, Lori remarked on its size as a “couple’s kitchen, not a throuple’s kitchen.”
The episode describes to viewers how the couple met. Brian and Lori were legally married and met Geli at a bar, where they fell in love with her. Brian and Lori subsequently exchanged vows in a commitment ceremony, which their children attended.
The episode was titled “Three’s Not A Crowd In Colorado Springs,” and received mixed reviews. Some viewers disapproved of the show featuring a polyamorous couple, while others lauded it for being progressive.
Oh, how quaint. Love knows no bounds, especially on St. Valentine’s Day. They even invited their children to the ceremony. A ceremony of what and by whom?
HGTV ought to be ashamed of themselves but I’m sure they feel pride. From the absurdity of gay marriage to the absurdity of transgenderism to the absurdity of throuples, we conservatives can’t keep up. Progressives are moving faster than a lump of crap falling off the Empire State Building. And making the same splat.Published in
