Human beings are the strangest species on the planet.
Seriously, think about it: What other animal on the planet sits down in dark rooms, watching other animals pretending to be things that they're not, on a screen, for entertainment?
Gorillas don't have the theater, elephants don't go to poetry recitals. Face it, humans are just plain weird.
In fact we're so unique, that some of us think it's perfectly normal to enter into holy matrimony with inanimate objects.
Known as "Object Sexuality," the practice is more common than you would think.
Even though this kind of stuff is prevalent among us humans, it never ceases to amaze me when I see a new person profess their love for something that isn't alive.
Like 33-year-old Amanda from Leeds, England who proposed to her favorite chandelier this past Valentine's day. She calls it Lumiere. Original, I know.
She purchased Lumiere on eBay and from the way Amanda tells the story to Inside Edition, it was love at first sight, err, listing.
"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. Although I knew it would be tricky to get her home, I knew I needed to find a way to make her mine."
In case you're concerned about Amanda being tied down or anything, don't worry, she's not. She's got 25 other chandeliers in her house and plans to keep an open relationship with Lumiere and her other light fixtures.
"None of my chandeliers are jealous of each other, they understand that I love them all for all of their different personalities. For example, I love kissing and cuddling Lumiere, but I sleep with Jewel every night, as she is portable and very nice to cuddle."
Amanda says she's been sexually attracted to objects for quite some time. Her first lover was a drum-set she met when she was 14-years-old.
The best thing to come out of this story is that Amanda revealed she was once in love with the Statue of Liberty. But her repeated trips to the U.S. to visit ended up costing her too much, and the long distance nature of their relationship ultimately forced Amanda to end it.
Twitter found her obsession pretty fascinating.
While others felt bad for her.
Well, stated. She publicly identifies as objectum sexual - I give her major props for sharing her story. I also give her props for cuddling with a lamp - seems MOST uncomfortable. I can't even spoon w/my hubby on a reg basis🙅— MARISSA TORRES PIX11 (@MarissaTorresTV) December 6, 2017
Mostly though, people just couldn't believe that someone professed their love for a light fixture.
Lindsey makes a pretty darn good point here, too.
The jokes hiding surprisingly sad truths kept rolling in.
While others were just happy for her.
Sounds like she found the light of her life.
