Quotable: Sarah Silverman Finds Marriage “Gross”

“I’m not against marriage, but it’s just not for me. I’m a vegetarian, but I don’t have a problem if you want a hamburger. Marriage to me is like eating meat. I think it’s gross and f**king crazy.”

–Sarah Silverman gives her not-so-subtle thoughts on matrimony in the new issue of Playboy. She also told the magazine that since gay people can’t wed in most states, “If you’re getting married today, it’s the equivalent of joining a country club that doesn’t allow blacks or Jews.” What do you guys think of this argument? I’m inclined to agree, but then again, I’m single and slightly bitter about the whole marriage thing. [Page Six] Keep reading »

Gays Get Their Flash Of Wedding Mag Fever In “Equally Wed”

Gays should be allowed to marry because it is their civil right to do so. But also because they, too, should have to deal with the dreaded wedding magazine onslaught that comes each spring. (Trim your tummy before the big day!, 10 ways to get him involved! Kill me now, please?) Introducing Equally Wed, a same-sex wedding mag for both gay and lesbian couples. There are articles about gay-friendly honeymoon destinations, how to buy a masculine or feminine tux, and, of course, tons of gown/bridesmaid/ring stuff. There’s even a state-by-state guide to places where same-sex marriage is legally recognized! Not only are we psyched gays now have to suffer the same bridesmaid dress foolishness that we have to, we’re psyched so many vendors in the wedding biz are embracing our lesbian and gay loved ones, too. Maybe where retail goes the law will follow? [Equally Wed] Keep reading »

Maryland To Recognize Same-Sex Marriages Performed in Other States

I have a friend who came to the United States from Israel to sing opera. He’s kind and funny, and when he sings, the air fills and tingles with his music. But too often, I’ve seen him looking sadly distant. He married his boyfriend last year in Connecticut, but then had to put him on the plane back home. At the moment they see each other once every few months, meeting up in Germany or Greece, but then each returning to a different country, oceans apart. Because our federal government doesn’t yet have an allowance for the partners in gay couples to immigrate on marriage visas, they’re being kept apart. And it sucks. Hopefully, more legislation rolls in like what’s happening in Maryland now.

New (Fake) Law Would Ban Marriages Between People Who Don’t Love Each Other


You know what has never made sense to me? That gay people who love each other can’t get married, but two straight people who detest each other can. I mean, if anything should be banned, it’s marriage between two dolts who can’t stand each other, right? This news spoof from The Onion hilariously imagines how people would react if such a law were proposed. Keep reading »

Awesome: Amsterdam’s Gay Bride Wedding Fair

The United States could really learn a few lessons from Holland. For starters, they’re all about being eco-conscious—everyone rides a bike, and no one even thinks about going to the grocery store without their reusable totes. Health care. Legalized drugs. And clogs are totally coming back in style. Of course, the Netherlands was also the first country to legalize same-sex marriage. As a result, its citizens have the opportunity to attend awesome events like the Amsterdam Gay Bride Wedding Fair (appropriately happening on Valentine’s Day), where tons of vendors will come to exhibit their wedding wares. It gets better: The event opens with a number by the cast of “Mamma Mia” and attendees get to walk away with a “Gay Bride goodie bag.” So … can we go? [I amsterdam] Keep reading »
