On Tuesday’s episode of his radio show, right-wing commentator Jesse Lee Peterson complained that married same-sex couples have hijacked the words “husband” and “wife” and forced straight couples to start referring to their spouses as their “partner.”
Peterson was upset that gay politicians like Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg and Chicago mayor Lori Lightfoot have appeared with and kissed their spouses in public.
“You have a homosexual—a radical homosexual—running for president, and no one seems to care, no one is rebuking him,” Peterson complained. “And he even flaunts his so-called husband with no shame, kissing him in public, and people applaud like its real. They call a man ‘husband’ like it’s real. It’s shocking.”
“Now they’re outwardly calling two men ‘husbands’ and two women ‘wives’ and the straight people are calling their relationships ‘partners,'” he continued. “The radical homosexuals started out calling their phony relationships ‘partners,’ and they convinced the straight people, ‘Don’t say girlfriend or boyfriend or fiance or husband or wife, say partner.’ And so the straight people—as weak as they can be—said, ‘OK.’ Now they’re called partners while the homosexuals have taken over terms ‘husbands’ and ‘wives.'”
“It’s mind-blowing,” Peterson concluded. “It’s just hard to believe.”
