That’s what a gay man’s mom tells the NY Times about what she has in store for his gay wedding, now that he can get gay married in New York. Do all gay people want to get gay married though? No, they don’t.
Some are opposed to the idea of gay marriage, which stands in stark contrast to what you read on the gay blogs or see on the gay MSNBC about gay people loving gay marriage so much. One of these gay people (from the photo on the left) isn’t just opposed to gay marriage, he doesn’t “understand” gay marriage:
Mr. Breslow, who calls himself queer rather than gay, philosophically opposes marriage. “I don’t understand the concept of legalized monogamy and normalcy,” said Mr. Breslow, who has a brother, Jacob, also gay. “My brother and I both studied queer theory.”
While I have no desire to get gay married, gay people who need to go on record saying that they oppose gay marriage on “philosophical” grounds are the worst. Do you really not “understand” the “concept” of monogamy and normalcy or do you just think it makes you sound interesting to say something like that? I don’t understand (or give a shit about) “queer theory,” but you don’t see me saying so. Well, except for just now.
But the mom (his stepmom, actually) is even worse:
His stepmother, Lorraine Gray, won’t take no for an answer. “I don’t have any girls,” said Ms. Gray, 52, a psychotherapist in Oakland, Calif. Never mind that she also has two other sons, 18 and 22, who are straight. “My gay kids are more fun than my straight ones,” she said.
Comparing your gay son to a girl and then saying your other straight sons are boring!
Jesus fucking Christ:
To appease her, Mr. Breslow is willing to entertain the notion of a wedding-like celebration, which he sees as a party to celebrate his relationship.
“But I don’t want a proper wedding,” he added. “I want it to be really queer and outrageous and angry, with a punk-rock drag queen playing hardcore music and people being naked.”
Ms. Gray has a slightly different vision: “It would be very sophisticated and urban. And I would do the food, which would be very foodie California: maybe a mix of Jewish, which we are, and Dominican, which Dan is. Everything would be lovely and sophisticated and not tacky.”
