Melissa Denton, a 42-year-old British woman with two failed marriages and two children from broken homes, decided to marry herself recently and is encouraging other women to participate in similar ceremonies.
She even wrote an op/ed in The Guardian celebrating her narcissistic display of self-indulgence as a showing of female empowerment.
“The idea to marry myself came to me in January last year, when I was at work one day,” Denton wrote.
Of course, her decision came after her boyfriend dumped her via text message saying: “I can’t do this any more, it’s over.” Her distraught nature caused her to cope with this stunt.
“It was devastating and left me in a funk, unable to eat, sleep or smile,” she wrote. “My ex used to say to me: ‘You can get married, darling, but it won’t be to me.’ It suddenly struck me that he was right. I could get married – to myself.”
Denton noted that, although it is technically illegal to marry herself, she became interested in a non-official ceremony after hearing about so-called ‘sologamy’ on a TV program. She believes her narcissistic display will help her self-growth.
“For years, I had poured myself into relationship after relationship, losing myself in the process. It was time to put ‘me’ first – a way to affirm that I can be happy on my own and to move on from the relationship,” she wrote.
She talked about her history of engaging in impulsive behavior, demonstrating a possible mental illness.
“My colleagues, sitting next to me, were the first to know of my plans,” Denton wrote of when she made the self-marriage announcement. “They, like most people, thought I was a bit mad, but they also know me for being impulsive and committing to an idea when I have one.”
“A few years ago, for example, I shaved my head to raise money for a cancer charity because a friend had ovarian cancer. More recently, I dyed my hair pink and got a nose ring,” she added.
The wedding ultimately cost £4,000 and an astounding 130 individuals showed up to help Denton manifest her delusion.
“It was the best day of my life.” she wrote.
Denton is encouraging other people to participate in their own celebration of narcissism and extols to the world what an incredible decision she made.
“Being Mrs Denton has taught me to be happy in my own company and skin, to not put pressure on myself to look or act in a certain way. Confidence is the most attractive thing a person can have and the marriage has given me that,” she wrote.
“My marriage to myself might not have come with a wedding night or honeymoon, but the plans for the future are far more exciting,” Denton added.
Chinese Communist Party Media is Rooting for Black Lives Matter
According to a piece by Paul Joseph Watson at Summit News, the Chinese state media outlet Xinhua is rooting for leftist insurrectionist group Black Lives Matter.
The outlet went so far as to draw a cartoon with police officers equipped with pitchforks and torches pursuing a black man.
“Statistics show, time and again, that some are disproportionately prejudiced against in the U.S. #FightRacism,” the official Xinhua News account Tweeted.

The image depicts three white police officers and a dog chasing a black male. While in pursuit, the officers exclaimed, “hunt that blackie!
The Chinese Communist Party has taken advantage of the BLM movement to try to gain international clout and stir up unrest within the U.S. The CCP wants nothing more than a weakened U.S. that is tearing itself apart. From there, it can position itself as a more “stable” alternative to the U.S. and continue projecting its soft power.
Similarly, by accepting the American Left’s narrative on police brutality, the CCP can draw attention away from its brutal human rights track record against ethnic minorities such as the Uyghurs.
Several Twitter users caught on to this and pointed out the irony in the CCP’s attacks against the U.S.
“So how are the Uighurs doing up in Xinjiang?” inquired one user.
Another user called attention to how China takes down black people from promotional material for Hollywood movies.

China has a very strong ethnocentric ethos and is not very friendly towards minority outgroups. After all, China views itself as “Zhong Guo” (the Middle Kingdom).
Watson pointed to a Spectator article detailing how Chinese people with a darker complexion receive harsh treatment. Some children get called “monkeys” if their complexion is perceived to be too dark.
In her Spectator piece, Carola Binney observed that racism in China is “so commonplace it can seem almost cheerful” and she noted that racism is a “standard undercurrent of public debate.”
All in all, China has no business lecturing the U.S. about racism.
Nevertheless, the U.S. should get its domestic house in order and tighten its migration and trade policies with China.
China will seek to exploit any vulnerabilities the U.S. has, and policymakers should do everything possible to shore up any weakness the U.S. has and keep China at bay.
