Two Moms, a Father, A Quppie, and a Court Jester

TORONTO (Reuters) - A five-year-old Canadian boy can have two mothers and a father, an Ontario court ruled this week in a landmark case that redefines the meaning of family and examines the rights of parents in same-sex relationships.

In a ruling released on Tuesday, the Ontario Court of Appeal said the female partner of the child's biological mother could be legally recognized as the boy's third parent.

Wow, how about that! HT Drudge.

Pretty soon courts will be telling children they can have a father, dozens of mothers, and none of them have to be human.

There is only one mother and one father. There was an Arabic insult I recall from my days in the Middle East. I didn't see it or hear it used but what you do is to take the thumb & pointer finger of one hand and form a circle. Take all of your fingers & thumb from the other hand and start moving them in & out of the circle formed by your other hand. It was saying You have five fathers and obvious mother insult.

I will say the courts can adopt that "insult" to simplify their rulings.
