The Great Debate - It's Raining Men or How I've Learned to Accept My Inner Gayness
The Indigo Girls
They all want to get married legally. So what's all the hubbub? Why can't they and should they? Ahh the great debate of ghey marraige. John-O broke his silence(finally)and spoke his peace while reviewing bat shit insano's (Penn's) new movie Milk. I guaranfuckingtee you this will win best picture and best actor (ugh!). I refuse to see the movie, no, not because I hate gays. I just hate Penn with a passion because he's a total fucking, hypocritical a-hole and mentally unstable to boot. So I decided to read up on the actual person Harvey Milk. To tell you the truth, I was bored. Inspirational? Sure (especially coming out during those times) but really lost on me because I'm not gay, that and I'm totally fucking jaded. Now before I delve into the hot topic of Adam and Steve (or Eve and ahhh Carol?) tying the knot I would like to show this little ditty.
Kind of funny, though I think Jack Black and Margeret Cho are complete wastes of space. I take offense of it a little because they insinuate that all practicing Christians are against gay marriage. I love liberals, not all Muslims are terrorists but all Christians are homophobes and dumber than hell. Fuck you douches, I got a 510 total on my SATs, that is not dumb. Besides, Muslims are not exactly tolerant of gays. I've read many articles of gay men and women reciting how homophobic Muslims are, Chris Crain can tell you that first hand.
Why they should Marry: It's pretty much a fundamental right, isn't it? You can argue and argue but in the end (pun intended) it's pretty stupid that they shouldn't have the right to marry. It's the old joke, all gays should have the right to get half of their shit taken away. In the immortal words of Otto from A Fish Called Wanda, "Pork away pal, fuck her blue." That made no sense, but if and when gays do have the right do not, I repeat, do not come crying back to me when you realize how hard it is to be married, and how much of a commitment it really is because I don't want to hear it. Why you would come crying back to me, I don't know, but you get my point. You buttered you bread and now you got to lay in it. As one comedian said, where there's gay marriage, there's gay divorce. Just think of the billable hours the attorneys will collect settling gay divorces. But I've also seen first hand how gay couple's rights are taken away when their partner is sick in the hospital. Next of kin only, their partner, who they love and cherish and have taken care of all these years are out of the picture in place of family members who couldn't give a shit about them. That's wrong IMHO.
Think of the money spent on lavish weddings by the guys from Queer Eye. That helps the economy! Ok, I don't know how 10% of the U.S. population getting married will actually help the economy but you get my point.....again. Christ I'm rambling.
Why They Shouldn't: Cannot think of a good reason. Maybe someone else can. BUT, I do think it's someones right to be against gay marriage. Call it homophobia call it what you will but someone can object to someones lifestyle as long as they are not intruding on their rights. See? I just talked myself out of this because not allowing them to marry is against their rights.
Obama: It wouldn't be me without ragging on John-O for his ultra liberal views (channeling my inner Rush Limbaugh to his inner Olbermann) but Barack's stance on gay marriage is a little surprising. He's against gay "marriage", but he's for Civil Unions. Alright, not exactly surprising but seriously, old Democrats and Clinton people? That's our "change"? Plus he's backing away from almost all his campaign promises and he's NOT EVEN IN FUCKING OFFICE YET!! Except for the environmental one, which I think is hilarious. 1.4 Billion to turn blue collar jobs into green collar jobs, without an explanation of how or explaining how he will come up with the money to pay for it. Love it.
Anyways, this was a shitty post but you get my point. I'm personally against prohibiting gays to marry, shocker since I'm a half assed Republican and a Christian. What about you smucks? What do you think?
