    Yeah, you read the subject line correctly. A nutty Republican from Georgia, the state chair no less, claims that marriage equality will encourage straight people of the same gender to marry in order to defraud the government.

    Yes, you have entered the Homophobic Twilight Zone.

    Oh, and she also says that gays must not be allowed to marry because they don't have the necessary sexual equipment. Somebody, please send her some really hot porn.

    The homophobes are getting more and more desperate. They don't know how to stop the Homo Express.

    Well, it could happen but that is already being done with fake marriages set up for citizenship. I'm a gay man who doesn't care about gay marriage. I have no plans to marry anyone, ever! One of the things I have enjoyed most about being gay is the freedom it allows in not being bound down to the pressure of marriage like my straight brother. My experience has been gay men can barely handle dating the same person, monogamy especially. Women tend to be anchoring forces in relationship in the man/woman thing. Maybe that's because they can bare children? I don't know enough lesbians to form an opinion. I've just never been a militant gay male. I am sure there are a lot of gay men who feel like I do but are going along with the cause because it's popular and they feel they should because they are gay. I think it is important to stand up for a cause you believe in but I have never been the type of person to make a lot of noise about a cause unless I REALLY believe in it, I don't care about gay marriage either way. The sky isn't going to fall in if gay are allowed to marry. I do see how church going America might feel differently. Gay people tend to make there lives look very decadent with sex, drugs and drag queens. That scares straight America. I can understand that. Seeing gay men portrayed acting like ladies as in the TV sitcom "Modern family" is good for laughs but not truthful in how a majority of gay men act. Many do in the gay ghettos but in the professional world being gay isn't so obvious. I prefer masculine men who when they talk don't remind me of women. That's just me though.

    I totally called this when they started talking about making "gay" an "affirmative action" class. Your straight friends would be begging to trick with you to get that job.


    Actually, I'm sure there was a black & white movie from the 60's with this plot. (Kind of like "Three's Company", but without the bimbos.) Almost sure it was called "The Gay Blades" but I can't find it on-line.

    Oops. Nope, it was this: They were pretending to be gay to dodge the draft.

    It's comforting to see that we've come to a point where a Republican politician is willing to protect the sanctity of gay marriage from fraudulent straights (albeit it by preventing gay marriage).


    Who knows, maybe she came to this conclusion after being educated on the matter by that award winning Dennis Dugan documentary.

    Reading this woman's quote, I'm having a tough time believing grown adults can possibly be this ignorant, and I'm starting to think these "bigots" are plants sent by GLAAD or the HRC to infiltrate the Republican Party and make ridiculously stupid comments that garner sympathy for gays while generating more and more disdain for movement conservatives.

    If that is the case, it's working because before reading this I was convinced the anti-equality movement could not possibly sound more dumb. Whoopsy-daisy.

    Yeah, because straights don't already 'fraudulently' marry each other already.

    Some straight dude: "I'm not gonna wed some pretty chick for the annual tax benefits... Nah, I think I'll get on one knee for Bob from Accounting instead. I hear he's got a trust fund. Surely, he won't mind sharing!"

    And, yeah, because gay men can't already marry lesbian women just for the benefits, too. #bachmanns

    It's one thing when it's a random commenter on Free Republic that illustrates a complete lack of logical, cogent thought. It's on a whole other plane when it's the chair of a state's political party.

    I think the "Odd Couple" is based on a demographic. There are straight men who do not want to live with women.

    In New York, I knew a man who lived with his girlfriend for more than four years and would not marry her. He just didn't want heterosexual marriage and I don't think he wanted children.

    So, if he needed marriage benefits, he'd probably choose marrying a man over marrying a woman.

    I had a boss who was affluent. He would not have children with his wife.

    So, there are married no kids and there are the shack-ups, no kids.

    There are a lot of U.S. citizens who loose their financial standings in their late 40s, 50s, and 60s. That's when the need kicks in. To live with your brother in marriage in the needy late 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s IS a viable option.

    "A nutty Republican from Georgia, the state chair no less, claims that marriage equality will encourage straight people of the same gender to marry in order to defraud the government. "

    I wonder if he realizes straights already do that with man+woman marriages...perhaps he should start with straight marriage bans first, in that light.

    In a sick sort of way the Republican lady's comments are a blessing in disguise. The more stupid they look, the more reasonable we appear.

    Yup. Me too. As others have stated, it already happens in the citizenship context. You even see it in the military a bit too with opposite-sex servicemembers getting married to receive dependent benefits, pay, favorable stationing, etc. I don't find that to be a convincing reason to ban gay marriage though.

    And a Georgia city is also requiring all heads of households to own a gun.

    Actually, Nelson is at least the second. Kennesaw has had its "citizens must own a gun" ordinance since 1982. Arguments that crime rates have been lowered due in Kennessaw to the ordinance have been scientifically sketchy, at best.

    Similar 'arguments' were made when civil partnerships were introduced in the UK in 2003. In the armed forces, dependant benefits were extended to the civil partners of armed forces personnel. The bigots argued that straight soldiers might contract a civil partnership with one another, just so that they could enjoy living in service family accommodation (i.e. a house) instead of having to live in single accommodation. Of course, it never happened.

    Why can all these people have abortions, get STD's through premarital sex, yet still have the right to get married? Don't these "sins" go against marriage too, according to the bible? But oooh no, that's not fair or logical. Gays will disappear some day, their numbers won't grow more and more or anything...

    Atheist can get married in this country. Buddhist can get married.
    Marriage doesn't revolve around that stupid fucking book. It's about love and BENEFITS. These backward ass conservative prudes in office need to just RETIRE or DIE.
