Natalie & Scarlett's queer love

by Jeremy Hooper

natalie-portman-scarlett-johanssonFrom the latest issue of W magazine come these fantastic pro-equality quotes, courtesy of actresses Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson:

I’m into monogamy,” says Portman. “But I’m not really into marriage right now. I sort of hate the legal aspect of it. What does the state have to do with it? Why are they making rules that say my lover can stay in the United States if they’re foreign or share my health care benefits because I’m straight”—here her eyes flash with horror—“but if you’re gay, you can’t have that?

It’s so archaic,” Johansson agrees. “It’s just, like, bizarre to me. I feel like in 10 or 15 years’ time our children are going to look back and say, ‘What? You were around when gay people weren’t allowed to get married?"

In response, the gay community said:

"Wow, that's refreshing. Thanks, ladies!"

The anti-gay community replied:

"Hollywood is filled with sinners. Only Christian DVDs for us, harlots!"

And hetero meatheads everywhere yelled:

"MAKE OUT!!!!!!! TAKE YOUR TOPS OFF!!! WOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!"
