Surrogacy conference cancelled
Sadly because of the coronavirus lockdown OBJECT’s Surrogacy Conference is postponed till the autumn. We will be in touch with ticket-holders via email and will of course refund ticket money.
What when something goes wrong? How often does this happen? What about the rights of the child? Or when a child is disabled in some way, or is a twin – common after taking fertility drugs. What are the effects of ‘egg donation’? Most surrogacy is poor women in poor countries helping rich women in rich countries. Should we be concerned? Is it just outsourcing? Another form of sexual exploitation?
How much money is made by the ‘surrogacy agencies’? What do the contracts say? For whose benefit are they written? Who gets legal advice? Usually last but not least, what about the rights of the child? What when the mother dies in childbirth?
Drag Queen Story Time: Child Grooming In Plain Sight?
Sonia Poulton’s ground-breaking film shows how Drag Queen Story Time grooms children for abuse. The kids learn terminology very similar to adult sexual behaviour, learn to deny the evidence of their own eyes and ears (‘I’m a man, no a woman’). This is grooming for abuse. The children also unconsciously learn to accept exaggerated stereotypes of femininity and learn to laugh at women for their appearance.
If Drag Queens have a place, it is in adult entertainment, it’s certainly not for children.’
