Gay Marriage, Gay Weddings and Gay Spinsters
Well, our GIRLS WHO LIKE BOYS WHO LIKE BOYS sure have their opinions on the whole marriage thing. We all want to find love. And for most of us, that means a partner we can rely on to stand by us, challenge us, and (maybe) cuddle with us. If we didn’t care about that stuff so much, romantic comedies would just be Jennifer Aniston clipping coupons in her bedroom for two hours. We want the happy ending–to settle down on the porch with a bottle of wine and a life of love to gaze back on.
Gays are no different. Let me repeat: Gays are no different. Got that, Congress, Michelle Bachmann and all those narrow minded folks with ill-fitting pants and ill-fitting morals? As the Nashville cast points out, homosexuality is coming out of the closet as…totally normal. As state after state legalizes marriage equality (not that it’s happening quickly enough), the question for many homos is no longer “will I ever be allowed to get married,” but rather “when will I get married” or “when will people stop bugging me to get married?”
Yes, now that the dream is becoming a real possibility, same-sex couples are having a much harder time denying their moms those wedding cakes and grandkids. If that’s your thing, mazel tov! If not, get used to years of annoying Thanksgiving dinners with the family.
On the other hand, becoming a gay spinster is now a potential reality. Always the groomsman, never the groom? Well, at least now you’ll be able to commiserate with that best girl friend a little bit more. Eat your heart out, Bridget Jones. Brad Jones is the future.
An all new season of GIRLS WHO LIKE BOYS WHO LIKE BOYS is just around the corner. Tune into Sundance Channel on for the Season 2 premiere Friday, November 18th at 9 PM et/pt.
