Not exactly sure why I am re-visiting this story about Mary Josephine Carter, an African-American, and her daughter Vertasha,who both profess to be Christians, but are involved in an incestuous affair.
In Mary’s words…
“Vertasha and I knew we were attracted to each other when she was sixteen. But we decided to wait to have sex until she was eighteen, legally of age. We are now going public with our relationship to help others who might be in gay mother/daughter relationship feel confident and okay about coming out. We want the world to know we love each other as mother and daughter and romantically.”
These words are not only disturbing but are truly from a disturbed woman. No child was born to have sexual feelings for his or her parent, except if that parent has been sexually molesting the child. A normal person does not profess this kind of sick love in public…totally not acceptable.
Mary even worsens the situation by saying,
“We’re women, so Vertasha and I obviously can’t make children. It’d be one thing if her daddy (he’s out of the picture) got her pregnant and a baby was born with deformities, but we’re not hurting anyone. We’re a new minority and just want acceptance.”
Now, which mother says stuff like this?!
Poor abused Vertasha, this is all she had to say on the matter,
“My mom is still my mom. She does normal mom stuff: buys me clothes, pays for food, tells me to make our bed. We just happen to enjoy sex with each other too.”
I understand Mary might have been in a bad place at one point in time, but she has no right to drag her child into her mess. To be involved in a divorce saga, is not a funny thing, it leaves the woman mentally and emotionally ‘raped’ and it’s only normal to have an offspring who has come of age to want to provide succour to the hurting parent. But it is totally not acceptable to exploit that child.
Every parent is obligated to protect their child, especially from sexual abuse, but when you have a parent who is the abuser, what do you do with such a parent? Like in the case of Vertasha, that child is caught between pleasing her mother or losing her love, so she has no choice but to give into the affair.
It is seriously sickening and should stop.
But it’s funny, why hasn’t her ex-husband said anything?
