A woman who ‘had a long-distance relationship with the Statue of Liberty’ is now engaged to a chandelier.

Amanda Liberty, 35, from London, describes herself an an “objectophile”.

An objectophile is somebody who has strong feeling of love, commitment or lust to items or structures.

The woman has been dating the 100-year old light fixture since 2017 said on Facebook that her love for the chandelier “just happened”.

Except, in this case, how could this possibly bother or hurt anyone?  If she's happy and her chandelier is happy, who cares?  Now if she starts having romantic trysts with it in the middle of a public park, well, that's probably when some intervention is needed, but for now... <shrug> meh.

IMO these seemingly harmless affectations can hide deeper psychological issues and they'll never be addressed because people say "it's not hurting anyone"....maybe it's hurting her.

And when she asks for help or there is some external evidence that this is in someway disabling her from living life, then, fine, she should get help. But, until then, why not just keep personal judgement to ourselves and let her be happy in her beliefs?  Not everyone has to marry according to our own personal beliefs nor live a life we deem appropriate.  If she's getting along, paying her bills, working a job, not making plans to blow up the Statue of Liberty, etc., then leave her alone. There are such WORSE things going on than someone who wants an inanimate object for a spouse. 

Frankly, I had a live one and she may be onto something.

I had a friend who worked in an outpatient mental health facility for years and while I don't want to go into specific cases,there were several instance where people with seemingly harmless issues ended up in tragic circumstances. We keep saying that mental health issues are being ignored and not taken seriously when they result in shooting situations but shouldn't we address indicators like these too...before they become something else?

And so how do you solve this?  Does anyone who doesn't like something get to point and yell "MENTAL ILLNESS" and have someone locked up?  What if I don't like my neighbor who doesn't like to garden and I, as an avid gardener, think that's an abomination?  WHERE'S THE LINE?  Don't make me invoke Godwin's Law.

We've essentially wrapped people up in cotton wool.  The question is, how do we unwrap them now? :huh: 

Sometimes, I don't think we should be so scared to be direct with people and straight up tell them what we think could be happening, instead of all of this holding back due to our fear of political correctness or the overly abundant amount of repercussions that go along with speaking our mind today.  :yes:

Of course we don't know if this woman hasn't been told a million times she's fruitcake. I don't think people hold back at all.  Seems to me that today everyone is shooting their mouths off about any little thought that crosses their minds. I doubt very much that she's gone her whole life without someone mentioning she needs help. I just don't think she's the worst nutball out there. I'd like to get the violent ones off the streets first.

Since nonliving objects are unable to consent, I count this as rape :angry:

All in all, just another brick in the wall.

Umm, Laptops are taken, probably the tv, LCD tv's are pretty sexy, and they have a large, glass surface,....hmmm, enough said.

 

Maybe tieing this nutter up, and putting his car through the crusher, might make him snap out of it, but maybe, not he will probably go for a similar colored toaster next.

it is a brave new liberal world,  wait till it starts gaining momentum, they will allow marriages with animals, and objects, and it will be dead serious. and we'll have to treat it as normal or you will be jailed for a hate crime.  sounds a lot like sodom and gamorah of our times

Seems to me I recall stories of people marrying animals in other countries but I can't be bothered to look that up.  I still don't think marrying an inanimate object is the problem that's going to bring the world to an end. It all seems so trite when mad little white boys with guns are mowing people down en masse.

Was that a serious reply? Are you not aware of back channel chat boards and a president who stokes their hatred constantly?  I will exit here since this is not the place to get political but "don't make them mad" is just really p***ing on the graves of a lot of innocent people who aren't even in their graves yet.

not really, it was a jab at your wise a$$ reply, but something did made him mad to that point, you need to figure what it was before you make someone else flip out. as i see gun surrender is not really a hit with your residents, what is the compliance rate, 10% at best?

back channel boards?? nope never heard of such,  but i'll take your word for it, since you obviously familiar with them, 

as far as president, nope, i am aware of liberal msm industry trying to make it look like he does, but it is nothing but  a lie,  if black people come to his rallies with a banner president is not racist, i'll take their word for it over anyone on the internet, or any msm outrage articles,

So you had a Light-bulb moment?

I always like a Glowing testimonial.

And that your understanding is now Crystal Clear.

So as usual....a simple comment gets turned I to a big drama.....all I said is that people should first stop celebrating them and being PC when there is an obvious disconnect.. Using gardening as an example is obviously far off the mark. Rather than encouraging people who think they are mermaids trapped in a human body we should recommend they talk to a professional.

And why do you assume that hasn't been recommended to her dozens of times? It's hard to get an adult, who's not a danger to themselves or others, to seek -- or be forced to take -- medical help.
