“Barnardo’s drops Mother of the Year Award after 25 years“, link
Children’s charity Barnardo’s has axed its Mother of The Year award after 25 years because it does not celebrate other caregivers like same sex parents and grandparents.
“Mother” is indeed an awfully loaded and old fashioned term and Barnardo’s has correctly concluded that it hurtfully excludes what some might call ‘families’ of male perverts who adopt children, like these two, the “Australian” Peter Truong and the American Mark Newton:
Aussie Pete and Yank Mark bought this Russian boy as a baby and not only did they deny him having a mother figure in his life but began sexually abusing and whoring him out to other homosexuals at the age of two.
Cruelly and unjustifiably, under the old Barnardo’s system, neither of these men could have won the Mother of the Year award. Barnardo’s does not merely destroy, but it creates as well, and has plans to rectify this matter further:
….the organisation said it planned to launch another award which recognised the “diverse” group of caregivers
So Aussie Pete, who is very diverse, and currently serving a 30 year term in the US, will be in the running for the award after all.
