LONDON, England, August 3, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — An American organization that promotes smaller families is publicly urging Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton, to stop having children.
Having Kids, based in San Francisco, wants the royal couple to serve as “role models” for the public in order to stave off future environmental cataclysm in the United Kingdom.
The organization’s letter asserts, “Large families are not sustainable” and “family planning has the most potential for mitigating climate change and its impacts.”
The letter goes on to warn that these “impacts” include: “More severe flooding — both from heavier rains and coastal flooding; deadlier heatwaves; increases in diseases such as malaria; and wildlife extinctions.
So far, there has been no official response from Prince William or Kate Middleton, who recently expressed her desire to have more kids. Ideally, according to reports, she would like four.
This isn’t the only time that Prince William and his young family have been objects of unusual comments and criticism.
Prince George, a “gay icon” at age four
A few weeks ago, the gay twitterverse lit up with tweets hailing the royal couple’s oldest child, Prince George, as a “gay icon.” The cause of the Twitter activity was a picture of the four year old boy caught in what some have identified as an awkward feminine pose.
The Gay news site, PinkNews, headlined an article, “People think Prince George looks fabulous in this new photo.”
There was immediate backlash from within the LGBT community, as many asserted that the “gay icon” comments their fellow gays and transgenders were making were serving to reinforce age-old damaging stereotypes. One Twitter user said, “Insinuating that Prince George is gay or camp is just the kind of homophobia you’d be outraged by if it was (sic) aimed at you.”
Urged to deprive royal babies of gender
After the birth of their second child, Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, two years ago, one viral tweet said, “Please stop calling the #RoyalBaby a girl. We don’t know what the baby’s gender is until it is old enough to decide for itself.”
A Reddit user posted, “Remember to stop gendering and speciating the Royal baby. Xe may be a girl, but could also be a boy. For all we know, xe is a demiboy … It is up to xe to decide this, not us.”
A writer at the New York Post asked, “How do you spoil the royal baby announcement that the entire world was waiting for with baited breath?”
“Answer: By turning it into an opportunity to advance a radical agenda that opposes gender realities.”
The young royal family seems to be a lightning rod for the advancement of such agendas and ideologies.
