Canadian throuples and the future of parenting
Canada is the forefront of this drive for the mass customization of reality. Recently, for example, a Canadian judge ruled that all three adults in a polyamorous relationship should be registered legally as the 'parents' of a two-year-old boy they are raising as a 'throuple'. And last month, Vancouver postman Rob Hoogland was jailed for calling his natal female child 'she' - because his estranged wife, and the school his child attends, have been supporting the child in "socially transitioning" to a male identity. It's one of the defining political battlefields of our time - and surreal legal rulings now emanating from Canada provide some clue as to where we might be heading.
