Just thought this was an interesting topic and a sign of the times for better or for worse.
s about to give birth to a baby.
Here is her background en.wikipedia.org...
It is not for man to judge, she is the first openly Gay Cabinet minister in Australia, and now she is about to be a Mother? Parent? to her partners
child(well the father known to them has donated his sperm to Wongs Partner...who will bear the child.
Apparently Wong will be granted Parental leave also....appplause for liberated thinking for about less than 1% of Australian workers, the reat get the
sack if they take time off because their wife has had a baby.
But I guess Wong is not a father? but a co mother?, or co parent?
If the father is known and gets involved does the child have three parents?
Or one Father and two mothers?
This Wong historic event may be right and it may be wrong but it sure is confusing.
I wonder if it would be allowed in her Birthplace of Malaysia?
Are we not glad we are such a liberated and tolerant society?
Go Penny Wong , you have made a first for Australia.
