For object-sexuals—humans that pursue romantic and sexual relationships with inanimate objects like picket-fences and the Eiffel Tower—a soft-fleshed Seattle woman named after a fertile alluvial plain in Mesopotamia should sound familiar.

On Sunday, Babylonia Aivaz—protesting against gentrification in her beloved community— married an abandoned warehouse, an innocuous dead thing that’s been sitting among Seattle’s most densely populated and gay-friendly neighborhood, Capitol Hill, for the last 107 years.

'“Yes, I’m in love with a 107 year old building! Yes, ITS A GAY MARRIAGE! How is that possible? Well there must obviously be a deeper story,” Aivaz wrote on her Facebook invitation to the wedding,”' reports WCTI.

And beguiling and complicated as she is, Aivaz would love to make you believe two things: 1.) the abandoned warehouse is in fact a woman, and 2.) the abandoned warehouse is a lesbian, and on reflection, has neither inconvenienced or disturbed anyone aside from a bunch of greedy real estate developers who want nothing more in life than to tear her apart, brick by brick, and when she’s gone fill in the space her hard female body left behind with luxury apartments.

Could Babylonia possibly pull any more sense from the gay rights movement?
