That gender spectrum continues to expand:
A British woman plans to marry a chandelier she bought online — and admits she’s hooked on “kisses and cuddles” with the dusty antique.
Amanda Liberty, 33, isn’t fazed by the whopping 57 year age gap between her and the tarnished light fitting, who she has dubbed “Lumiere.”
Speaking of her wife-to-be, who she spent over $500 shipping over from Europe in 2016, she said: “As soon as I saw Lumiere on eBay, I knew immediately that she was the one for me and it was love at first sight.”
“I couldn’t stop thinking about her and how beautiful she was — she has such a beautiful shape and I could feel really amazing energy coming from her.”
As an Objectum Sexual, someone who is sexually attracted to inanimate objects, all sorts of bits and bobs have caught her eye.
My first instinct is that this is some type of attention-seeking hoax. But if not, and this person truly has romantic feelings for a chandelier, then I would have to conclude she is mentally ill. This doesn’t mean she should be forced to seek out treatment. But it does mean I am under no rational obligation to treat her illness as something that is normal.
Is someone like Amanda Liberty supposed to be evidence of the “gender spectrum?” If so, that’s the type of evidence that would call the reality of the whole “gender spectrum” into question.
