    It's not a "gay wedding". It's a "wedding".

    Nah, it's a gay wedding. If it were penguins getting married we'd all call it a penguin wedding. Quit being a PC dope, gays getting married are having a good old gay wedding. Jesus some of you are so obtuse.

    On many sites, they prefer when you link a story from another site, you do not change the headline of the story but copy exactly as is. Apparently here you need to sanitize your thread title from whatever the headline was for the sensitivities of Real Jock readers.

    What is even worse is that if those here that are objecting to the headline had bothered to read the story they would have seen that there was a specific reason for including the phrase "gay wedding" in the headline.


    In this case, at the end of the story, the heterosexual author had an epiphany. The first sentence of the last paragraph:

    "It turns out my wife and I didn't go to a "gay wedding"; we went to a wedding."
