If we're tossing out the sole "two people... one man, one woman" legal definition of parents... doesn't this mean that any number and combination of people can apply to be the "legal parents" of a child... and if not, why not?
-- TORONTO -— An Ontario boy can legally have two mothers and a father, the province's highest court ruled Tuesday.It's hard to imagine that the courts could now, similarly but reciprocally, rule against, say, Muslims in polygamous marriages... or even a group of people in a commune wanting to be collective parents of all the kids in their self-defined group.

Not that there's anything wrong with 7 dads and 15 moms...
