Anti-gay columnist and president of The Council for Marriage Policy, or CMP, David R. Usher issued a warning on Friday that if same-sex marriage becomes legal across the country, lesbians will trick gay and straight men into having sex with them so that they can conceive children, and then they will turn those men into economic slaves. He predicted that straight, single mothers will also begin marrying women in order to “double-up” on child support and further enslave men.
Usher’s column, titled “Our last chance to save traditional marriage,” claims the Supreme Court created three classes of marriage when it struck down the Defense of Marriage Act.
The first is the “mother-mother” marriage between two women.
“Most women will bear children by men outside the marriage – often by pretending they are using birth control when they are not," Usher wrote. "Entrapped men become economically conscripted third parties to these marriages, but get nothing in return.”
He said their children will become the responsibility of “taxpayers.” Furthermore, same-sex marriage will be a viable path for straight, single mothers.
“This is a significant advantage compelling women who would otherwise become [or are] single mothers to choose to marry a woman instead of a man,” Usher wrote. “They can combine incomes, double-up on tax-free child support and welfare benefits, decrease costs and double the human resources available to raise children and run their household. They are sexually liberated with boyfriends often cohabiting with them to provide additional undeclared income and human resources without worrying about what happens when they break up with their boyfriends.”
The second class, Usher posited, is heterosexual marriage. He said opposite sex partners almost always support their marriage “without governmental involvement,” such as food stamps or welfare, but they will be at a disavantage next to the tax-evading Class 1 marriage.
“Traditional marriages will be economically disadvantaged compared to mother-mother marriages because they cannot draw large incomes from the welfare state and they will be taxed to support other marriages,” he said.
But no one has it worse, Usher said, than the third class, male-male marriages.
“Marriages between two men are destined to be the marital underclass," he wrote. "In most cases, these men will become unconsenting ‘fathers’ by reproductive entrapment. Men in male-male marriages who become fathers by deceptive means will be forced to pay child support to women in bi-maternal marriages and become economically enslaved to Class-1 marriages.”
Usher believes the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community is highly promiscuous, spreads HIV and is causing a “national health crisis.”
“Medical science has documented the fact that homosexual behavior is a great health and social risk to everyone,” Usher wrote. “There is no evidence that gay marriage reduces the extremely high rates of promiscuity commonly practiced by homosexuals and bisexuals.”
