Gay marriage never interested me personally.

    As a young boy growing up I remember seeing Time magazine with Anita Branyt saying pray for our son's. The insert photo was of two obviously gay men kissing. This was during her campaign against gay rights in Florida in the mid 70's. Maybe that was impactful to me because even now seeing to gay men together looks strange, two women also. Also, the couples they show on the news etc..... are not attractive. Always over weight and ugly. Definitely all types in the world huh? For me I don't care. Never say never though. If I met a old rich man who was near death and he wanted to marry I would probably do that. I like being single and one of the things I have enjoyed most about being gay is not being bond down to w=same standard of marriage as my straight brother with having kids etc..... Not all people are cut out for that type of thing. My experience has been gay men have a hard time dating the same man for any length of time. The conservative moment should look at the reality of this and that most of these unions with same sex couple will end badly and lawyers will be busier then ever. It will also help the economy with these gays spending $$$ on weddings that won't last. Ultimately they will be miserable, going to court etc.....

    Bless your heart... Yes, all us Gay peeps are cut from that same warped Anita Bryant Shaming cookie cutter mold you describe.
    What you describe is your version of all gay men, when the truth is there's a ton of guys that have been together for years and years.
    Marriage is not for everyone. Not even for the straights.
    They fail at it too. Marriage takes work and understanding.
    Some guys just don't have the patients or time to invest in a loving relationship. Then there are those of us that do.

    Just yesterday, our first married couple in Dallas was a gay couple that have been together 54 years. They were 82 and 85.
    I can count gay friends/couples that have hit the +10yr mark with both hands.

    Yes, it's true. Marriage is not for everyone. Yes, there will be divorces. My guess is that there will be MORE lasting marriages than divorces in the upcoming years.

    Wow, so you would marry some rich man near death? What a selfish, ugly thing to say. Judging by the low post count, I'd say that you are trolling, so whatever.

    Okay then, well, thanx for the warning.

    So 40 years later and you credit Anita for your self hate? I'm gonna guess you skipped a day or two of therapy between then and now.

    Someone should throw a banana cream pie at you. In fact you should throw one at yourself. Seriously. You should make yourself a lovely banana cream pie, sit it down in front of you and then just plop your face into it.

    In fact, get two hot guys to sit naked next to you. Hold onto their dicks while you plop your face down into the banana cream pie. I'm pretty sure that will break the spell.

    And then you need to kiss on them with pie on your face.

    I've looked through my magic bag of tricks but can't think of anything else that might cure you of your Anita Syndrome. Only here's the thing: it only works by the end of the weekend where we ever might finally gain rights to marriage.

    Oh look, you're in luck. Better hurry.

    I found a spell online for you. I've modified it a tad. You need to repeat this right before you plop your face into the banana cream pie:

    If Anita threaten in this place,
    Fight Water by Water and Fire by Fire,
    And Pie by Pie
    Banish Bryant into the crust of her own ass,
    and remove her vagina smell until the last trace.
    Let that evil bitch flee,
    Through time and space.

    Try that. See if it works for you. Get back to us when you decide to like being gay.

    I never met the right guy with whom I wanted to marry (yet) .... but everyone deserves the same rights.

    But just because gays and lesbians are now allowed to buy a marriage license to enter into a contractual relationship with their partners, just like strait people, does not mean we have equal rights. Just try holding your partners hand or hugging them as you walk down the street in public and see what happens.

    Just because you can doesn't mean you should. No worries, If you don't want doesn't mean you have to. But if you ever change your mind, the option is now legally there.

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidEveryone should be allowed the same rights.

    End of story.

    Yep! It's not like every gay men is dying to get married, but everyone should have the option. If you don't like gay marriage, don't get married to another gay.

    OP: fake bitter troll

    This must be written by a homophobic straight guy, or more likely a self hating gay guy.icon_sad.gif

    The kind of gay man who literally fucks around yet fails to acknowledge genuine love between same-sex relationships.

    The part about not being as comfortable seeing same sex together is understandable given a lifetime of hetero-hegemony, particularly formed or internalized initially without any of the supporting structures we've built over the past four or five decades. Even among those born into the construction of that, you'd have to be a machine for it to not have affected you at all, as much as anyone might want to flaunt their own self-acceptance which we're entitled to, more so towards them to open doors but maybe not so much a misdirected battering ram towards our own community, as fucked up as it might be in the interim. You don't wipe the dogs nose in it if you haven't been home in two days to walk him.

    And that might last many more generations. This work is not done. We older guys went through our shit, but growing up we didn't have news of our gay brothers beheadings and being left to die on fences. So today's generations aren't exactly living a life saturated in love, are you?

    As sad as it is that one of us might not have gathered yet their internal strengths at least enough to fight off the self-image superimposed by the hegemony of the heterosexual, it's cruel maybe to attack him for it, though for his own good it ought to be brought to--for I don't know how it escaped--his attention. He needs to know there's a way to ameliorate that pain, that perception. Even if you can't cut out a part of you, you can find a place to put it to sleep so that it won't so much damage you.

    What might appear as what might be accused of being self hate might simply be double consciousness. That the person has placed more importance over how he thinks he is perceived over and above how he'd rather or even actually does see himself. It might be indicative of a lack of love for himself, that if he loved himself more, he'd have the strength to fight how he perceives himself being seen. But even that, even if it is a lack of the strength that might come from loving himself does not by itself indicate that he hates himself, that he is self hating of himself. He might simply hate how he sees the world seeing him.

    We should not confuse the two.
