The Problem with Gay Marriage

When I was a sophomore in high school, a junior invited me to be his date at the junior/senior prom (no big whup). To my shock and horror, there was another girl wearing the exact same prom dress as me, and to be honest, she looked better than me. To add insult to injury, her date was this senior I had a huge crush on. But don't worry, this story has a romantic happy ending - two years later, when my crush dropped out of college and moved back in with his parents, he let me give him a handey in the front seat of his mom's Volvo station wagon. Ever heard of a thing called "romance"?

My point is: sure, I wholeheartedly support gay marriage in theory and law and concept. But when you see it in real life, I can't help but think how pissed I'd be if some bitch showed up wearing the same thing as me on my fucking wedding day.

FYI, in case this photo by itself doesn't clearly indicate it's a lesbian wedding rather than some fancy-dress event, please let their NY Times wedding announcement provide evidenence. Incidentally, I was reading the Styles section of the paper at the same time as browsing the most recently uploaded Flickr images, and I recognized them. How weird is that?

My mom loves the gay wedding announcements in the NYT. She'll call me and read some of the better ones, the guys who have lived together for 50 years and one's a hairdresser to the stars and the other's a lawyer.

We lately were sitting in a bar and at the same time there was a lesbian club meeting.

I swear non of the couples were hot.

And there was nearly, no in really every of those relationships one acting the man.

We did wonder..for what being in love with a woman as woman if the other acts masculin??

Strange..don´t you think?

Some straight women are attracted to girlie boys, and some are attracted to manly men and some to both. It doesn't seem strange that this would apply to gay women as well.

Dan Savage's podcast from about two or three weeks ago addressed your point Violette. Can't remember which one, but check it out if you're still dying to get some perspective.

Seems your english is not great, Violette, so maybe you're not trying to offend. But lesbians come in all shapes and sizes, just like straight ladies. Free your mind.

why would you label this "bicurious"? these women are clearly lesbians, not bicurious

Lesbians are rarely hot. They're never like they are in the pornos either, that's always such a disappointment I think.

And not all girls are insatiable whores like in pornos either! Welcome to the real world.

well in my personal opinion, neither hate gay people nor support gay wedding, in some cases some men have a complete box of viagra without prescription to avoid become gay, in my case I don't need this because my girlfriend keep me so "busy".
