While the deaths of DOMA and Prop. 8 are amazing enough on their own, the icing on the gay wedding cake is that all this other stupid bullshit gets to die, too.
I’m not sure if I really believe in the institution of marriage (maybe, like Obama, I’m still evolving), but I do believe in everyone having equal access to the same dumb things, so what the Supreme Court did yesterday was great. That said, isn’t it also great that we won’t have to be subjected to all the stupid bullshit designed to protest the now overturned laws?
Adam Bouska’s NOH8 Campaign
This stupid bullshit may have been well-intentioned in the beginning, but when photo shoots started popping up at the White Party and the Kardashians, Weird Al, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Tara Reid, and literally every other C, D, E, and F-list celebrity realized they could co-opt the campaign to promote their reality shows and their perfumes, it was time for this stupid bullshit to die.
People On Facebook Telling Me To Boycott Chick-fil-A
I go on Facebook to play Candy Crush Saga and to hate-read people’s status updates about how amazing their pathetic lives are, not to be inundated with stupid bullshit about how I must boycott fast food chains, Target, The Hyatt, See’s Candies, Gold’s Gym, and The Salvation Army (gross, like I would ever go to The Salvation Army anyway). How am I supposed to keep track? How am I supposed to know when a corporation has made amends? Isn’t every corporation worth boycotting for doing some stupid bullshit? I boycott anyone who tells me about something I need to boycott.
Ryan James Yezak’s “Second Class Citizens”
Ugh. This stupid bullshit documentary already raised $176,000 on Kickstarter, but then the director started charging people $25 to have their pictures taken in a bar with masking tape around their wrists (basically ripping off that other stupid bullshit from Adam Bouska’s “NOH8”) because he said he needed even more money. It’s been over 18 months since this project was funded, and this stupid bullshit is supposedly still in production.
Grindr For Equality
This stupid fucking bullshit was a stupid marketing tactic aimed at the .00000001% of Grindr users who believe they should have the right to marry the whores they meet on Grindr who bareback them. Mercifully, the Grindr Equality blog hasn’t been updated since May 17th, so this stupid bullshit looks to have already died over a month ago. Instead of “equality,” maybe Grindr can now focus on telling its users to wear condoms and stop spreading HIV?
Fuck this stupid bullshit. For every one of these videos I had to watch, I became a little less gay and a little more embarrassed to be alive than I already am. People who make stupid bullshit videos like this hurt their own cause and make me want to fight against their rights. I hope all their gay marriages end in gay divorce.
Of course, the fight for marriage equality still isn’t over in 36 states, so all this stupid bullshit probably isn’t actually completely dead quite yet. Shit.
