Audio: AZ anti-gays' unbelievably anti-intellectual ad

by Jeremy Hooper

Gay people get engaged. Gay people have cute little romantic moments. Gay people dine with their families. Gay people sing songs to the one they love. Gay people get stains on their shirt.

We really thought all these points went without saying. However, after hearing how the anti-gays in Arizona are running a radio ad with a sole focus on joyous moments in heterosexual courtship...

...we realize that some people need to be reminded of the collective nature of milestones. Non of us hold ownership to joyous celebration. We all live, we all love, we all toast to happiness. And if the anti-gays won't to put roadblocks along gay people's paths, then they are going to have to do far more than simply gloat over the ease with which heterosexuals can hold their non-controversial proposal parties!

Please, Arizona: Do not support the side of arrogance. Support the side of freedom:

Your thoughts

To steal a bit from Paula Poundstone, someone wrote that down on a piece of paper. Probably a couple of times. This was the best version of that ad. Many actresses tried out for that role and were bummed out when they didn't get the part.

I just...

I mean, thank God that woman's gay brother was out banging some guy in leather chaps with a riding crop in a truck stop restroom stall while somebody else watched through the glory hole. If he'd been there at the restaurant while the heterosexual boyfriend (who is not fucking heterosexual girlfriend until their wedding night, of course) was singing on a chair, that would have ruined the whole story.

Now I get it. If gays get married, there won't be any more sappy engagement stunts.

Is that really true?

And if it were true, would it really be a bad thing.

Wow, and apparently Robert Stack is back from the dead and anti-gay.

Wow! Beyond belief.

Do people listening to this really believe that gays getting married is somehow going to ruin *their* special romantic proposal??
