    Object Sexuality

    In the new age of SJWs, tolerance and anything goes, here's the newest trend:

    Woman Becomes ‘Engaged’ to Chandelier

    A woman has become “engaged” to her favorite chandelier, according to a report.
    33-year-old Amanda Liberty from Leeds, England, reportedly proposed to the chandelier on Valentine’s Day, however she will be “continuing an open relationship with the rest of her collection of 25 chandeliers,” according to Inside Edition.

    “You can’t control who you fall in love with and things just went from there,” explained Liberty, who added that she saw her “fiancée” Lumiere on eBay last year.

    Inside Edition reported, “The nearly 30-inch wide chandelier is an antique and had to be shipped over from Germany,” and, “Although Lumiere is the only chandelier that wears a ring,” Liberty “loves all the light fixtures in her collection.”

    “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,” she proclaimed. “Although I knew it would be tricky to get her home, I knew I needed to find a way to make her mine.”

    “None of my chandeliers are jealous of each other, they understand that I love them all for all of their different personalities,” Liberty concluded. “For example, I love kissing and cuddling Lumiere, but I sleep with Jewel every night, as she is portable and very nice to cuddle.”

    Liberty, who reportedly identifies as “objectum sexual,” first fell in love with a drum set at 14-years-old, and was previously in a relationship with the Statue of Liberty, “for which she legally changed her name in 2010.”

    Despite her love for the statue, Liberty claimed that the distance “took its toll” on their relationship after visiting just six times.

    In 2014, a British woman “married” her dog following a failed marriage, and in April, a Chinese man “married” his self-created robot girlfriend.

    The man decided to marry the robot after he reportedly became frustrated over “failing to find a girlfriend,” and despite the robot’s limitations, he plans to upgrade the robot wife over time.

    Other bizarre marriages have included a woman who married a roller coaster and a woman who married the Eiffel Tower.

    Object sexuality or objectophilia is a form of sexuality focused on particular inanimate objects. Those individuals with this expressed preference may feel strong feelings of attraction, love, and commitment to certain items or structures of their fixation. For some, sexual or even close emotional relationships with humans are incomprehensible. Some object-sexual individuals also often believe in animism, and sense reciprocation based on the belief that objects have souls, intelligence, and feelings, and are able to communicate.

    In 2009 Amy Marsh, a clinical sexologist, surveyed the twenty-one English-speaking members of Erika Eiffel's 40-strong OS Internationale about their experiences. About half reported autism spectrum disorders: six had been diagnosed, four were affected but not diagnosed, and three of the remaining nine reported having "some traits." According to Marsh, "The emotions and experiences reported by OS people correspond to general definitions of sexual orientation," such as that in an APA article "on sexual orientation and homosexuality ... [which] refers to sexual orientation as involving 'feelings and self concept.'"

    In 2009, Erika Eiffel appeared on Good Morning America and the Tyra Banks Show[citation needed] with Amy Marsh to discuss her marriage to the Eiffel Tower and how her object love helped her become a world champion archer. Marsh shared the results of her survey and her belief that OS could be a genuine sexual orientation, and reasoned that if childhood trauma were a factor, that there would be more OS individuals. Eiffel, who had adopted her surname after a 2007 "marriage" to the Eiffel Tower, founded OS Internationale, an educational website and international online community for those identifying or researching the condition to love objects.

    Amanda Liberty told the Daily Mail in March 2012 that the Statue of Liberty "is my long-distance lover and I am blown away by how stunning she is. Other people might be shocked to think I can have romantic feelings for an object, but I am not the same as them." Three weeks later Reighner Deleighnie declared her love for a short marble statue of Adonis that she'd named "Hans".

    Marsh sees OS-like behavior in classic literature. In Victor Hugo’s The Hunchback of Notre Dame,

    [Quasimodo] loved [the bells], caressed them, talked to them, understood them. From the carillon in the steeple of the transept to the great bell over the doorway, they all shared his love.

    Claude Frollo had made him the bell ringer of Notre-Dame, and to give the great bell in marriage to Quasimodo was to give Juliet to Romeo.

    Meet Amy, who is sexually attracted to a roller coaster.

    Erika La Tour Eiffel, 37, a former soldier who lives in San Francisco, has been in love with objects before. Her first infatuation was with Lance, a bow that helped her to become a world-class archer, she is fond of the Berlin Wall and she claims to have a physical relationship with a piece of fence she keeps in her bedroom.

    But it is the Eiffel Tower she has pledged to love, honor and obey in an intimate ceremony attended by a handful of friends.

    Not going to watch it either, all I can say is these people have a mental illness.
    Life is like a fire hydrant- sometimes you help people put out their fires, but most of the time you just get peed on by every dog in the neighborhood.

    Woman dating a chandelier has discrimination case thrown out

    A woman who claims to be in a relationship with a 92-year-old chandelier has lost a discrimination case against The Sun. Amanda Liberty says her sexual orientation is an attraction to inanimate objects, which has been described in one academic paper as ‘objectum sexual’. She has spoken out about her unusual love story in the media previously, saying she planned to have a commitment ceremony to Lumiere to show ‘that my love is going to last’. Ms Liberty, from Leeds, was featured in the Sun when columnist Jane Moore wrote an annual ‘awards’ column for 2019. She awarded her the ‘Dagenham Award (Two Stops Past Barking)’, saying she had married a chandelier-style light fitting and asked whether she was ‘Dim & Dimmer?’ She complained to the Independent Press Standards Organisation (Ipso) that the Sun had breached Clause 12 of its Editors’ Code of Practice, relating to discrimination, in the article published in December. She said that, by awarding her the ‘Dagenham Award’ and asking whether she was ‘Dim & Dimmer’, the article was ‘pejorative to her sexual orientation’. As well, she said she was not married to the chandelier but merely in a relationship with it. The Sun opposed Ms Liberty’s complaint, arguing that ‘sexual orientation in the context of Clause 12 covered people who were attracted to people of the same sex, the opposite sex, or both’, not people who were attracted to objects.

    The newspaper also said it ‘was not aware of any reputable definition of sexual orientation which included objectum sexual’. Dismissing Ms Liberty’s complaint, Ipso ruled: ‘Clause 12 provides protection to individuals in relation to their sexual orientation towards other persons and not to objects. ‘As such, the complainant’s attraction to an object did not fall within the definition of sexual orientation as provided by Clause 12 and the terms of Clause 12 were not engaged.’ The regulator said it ‘recognised that the complainant found the article to be offensive and upsetting’, but added that the Ipso code ‘does not cover issues of taste and offence – newspapers are free to publish information as they see fit as long as the Editors’ Code is not otherwise breached’.

    These kinds of stories truly reveal the lengths the mainstream media will go to find bizarre stories that create clicks/views/advertising dollars etc. The weirder they are, the more people will just have to click and find out. Of course, masses of people apparently want to see such stories so I guess you get the media you want.

    People should stop watching this nonsense and do something useful like go for a hike in the woods or by the ocean. But most of them would probably be staring at their damned phones the whole time.

    Hmmm, I suppose going in the woods or ocean is not allowed in some cases these days ... they want you to be stuck at home to watch their pathetic propaganda like "Hunters" or whatever.

    What's that channel "TLC"? The Learning Channel? Really? A whole Universe of interesting things and these idiotic channels pump of drivel. I guess I shouldn't be surprised.
