WHY I AM AGAINST SAME SEX ‘MARRIAGE’ PART 3   Leave a comment

(THE LATE ALBYN–IN FRONT–AND JOE–IN CENTER–CELEBRATING THEIR 50TH ANNIVERSARY–THEY HAD BEEN TOGETHER 56 YEARS WHEN JOE DIED FIRST–THAT IS ME IN THE REAR.)

Marriage as practiced by opposite sexes is a failure. Even before people’s lives were extended 2-3 lifetimes marriage became a disposable part of modern day life. There is no more ‘for better or worse’, people are experiencing more than one marriage.

Something I have always liked about most, not all, gay people, well males at least, was their promiscuity. It was a major difference between gay and nongay males and defined, to me, what gay meant. Okay that’s for another discussion.

By law all people getting married have to have a license issued by the State but after that where does it say you have to have a wedding cake? Why not a candy bush? Why do you have to walk down the aisle? Can’t each walk around the room and meet at a certain wall? Why can’t the ‘best man’ be the one with the biggest penis and displays it? Come on, these are gay men and for many penis defines gay because without it would they be a gay man? How about ‘forever’ be for 10 years and every decade they have to get ‘remarried‘?

Yes I can see some of you behind the monitors shaking your head but does it make a difference what you do after you get that State license?

Shouldn’t we be doing everything to prevent the 50.02% divorce rate that nongays have? Obviously they are doing something wrong and if gays want to have a successful life, partnership, forever after together, they have to break the rules, which gays have always been good at.

Why aren’t we setting our own traditions? Say the couple give the guests gifts instead of the way it has always been? Why are we using the words such as husband and wife when we have imagination to come up with words that are special to the gay couple?

Let’s stand “marriage” on its head and revise what it has meant for years and had lead to failures for centuries.

Where is that gay couple strong enough, imaginative enough, trend setters, style and fashion setters, that can stand up and say that he is not my husband or wife but my—-? Who can come up with traditions that nongays haven’t owned, that gays can say we started them and, of course, now the nongays are copying us again?

Where are the smart, sharp, FAB-U-LOUS gays who can set the world on their heads by making legal coupling last and not end in divorce in 8.8 years? Come on out and tell us your suggestions!

Or are all stereotypes, clichés about gays just a myth?

By the way, it might take a month or two but it is on my list to write about and that is seeing a whole new conception of two people making their lives together successfully yet giving the nongay people their idea of marriage and gay people complete equality and status.

Last but not least, I have been basically talking about the laws and rules regarding ‘marriage’ in the USA–what are the advantages and disadvantages of getting ‘married’ in your country?

AJ & RAY FIRST SAME SEX MARRIAGE IN RHODE ISLAND   Leave a comment

AJ AKA AS LUNARHUNK AKA AARON AND HIS PARTNER OF 10+ YEARS WERE THE FIRST SAME SEX TO BE CIVIL UNION PARTNERS IN RHODE ISLAND AND TODAY THEY BECAME THE FIRST SAME SEX COUPLE TO MARRY IN RHODE ISLAND,

I believe Aaron was the first blogger I met and exchanged comments with and we have been talking ever since. Though I have never met or talked to Ray I know he and Aaron are a good match. I promised them I would be at their 50th anniversary!

The other good news I got was that my oldest friend—not in age but in time we have known each other–Chuck and his partner Terry, both living in Memphis, will be going up to Washington D.C. at the end of the month, for the softball games, and, marriage being legal in D.C., will be getting married there. I am so glad they decided not to live in sin!!!

It being Thursday Allen and I went to the Cafe Vico–he had garlic shrimp with angel hair and I had eggplant parmigiana. The chef seems to outdo himself every week. There hasn’t been a dish less than excellent at this place.

As always there is something to rock the boat and though nothing major it annoys me. I went to the dentist for my new ‘flip’ but it seems it was just a fitting and I have to go back in two weeks. I am use to my old dentist doing the work in his office but this one has to send it out. Oh well I AM managing to eat! LOL

I, also, was approved, for the MRI and MRA to be done in the hospital and I have to be there at 8 AM–OMG! 8 AM–on Tuesday August 20th which means I have to get up at 6 AM to go to the hospital only to go to sleep! LOL

Last, but not least, it being summertime I am taking a little vacation. I will still do blogs on new restaurants and new movies and once in awhile other topics but in most cases I am going to repost some old blogs. I came across a series I did a couple of years ago called “Summer in Fort Lauderdale” plus a few from 6-7 years ago that I hope all the people that haven’t read them will enjoy them and others rereading them will remember them fondly though looking at the names most have left blogging!!
