Yes, life is short. So while you all are off having your affairs, let us f***ing marry!

by Jeremy Hooper

We listen to the Howard Stern show, and so are quite aware of AshleyMadison.com (a frequent Stern advertiser). However, it wasn't until our pal Joe Jervis at Joe.My.God mentioned it that we realized: Yes, we gay folk totally Picture 4-204should tell all of the "pro-family" types who accuse gays of destroying the sanctity of marriage about this, a site where married HETERO people go for the sole purpose of finding someone with which to have affair. Around 3.3 million of them go there, in fact.

This from Joe:

Hey, did you know there's a dating website with over 3 million members that's just for heterosexuals looking to redefine the definition of marriage? AshleyMadison.com's slogan: "Life is short. Have an affair." The company tried to run an ad during the Super Bowl, but were turned down by NBC and the NFL. However a local station in Texas (which is apparently a seething sweaty hotbed of infidelity) was happy to run the commercial, which was not received very well by some.
*KEEP READING: Sanctity Of Marriage, Vol. XLIII [J.M.G.]

Now, of course the religious right would never gun for these proud cheaters in the same way that they go after committed homos, because there's no money or political capital for them to mine in the reality that is heterosexual infidelity. But we know it's out there. Perhaps it's time that we make a concerted effort to make sure that all of our "pro-family" buddies do as well.

**Watch the commercial they tried to air:

Classy.

Well Clicky, since everyone involved is consenting, it would probably be unconstitutional to criminalize it.

Hmm... I wonder how long after we get marriage recognition will it take for someone to make a gay version of this.

This is a KEEPER! It will be useful....somehow.

Here's JMG final recommendation:

Gay activists should email a link to AshleyMadison.com to every wingnut that uses the expression "sanctity of marriage". If they want to use every bizarre little instance of a gay person acting badly against us, let's throw THREE MILLION CHEATERS in their face.
