Elton John? Marriage? With our reputation? No thanks.

Obviously the life and soul of the partyElton John off-of was once married to a lady many moons ago, has said that he doesn’t think the gayses should bother to get themselves all worked up into a flustered frenzy by fighting against Proposition 8. In case you forgot, that is California’s ban on cock-to-cock, vag-to-vag marriage.

The gap-toothed cock-sucker (literally speaking) said:

‘I don’t want to be married. I’m very happy with a civil partnership. If gay people want to get married, or get together, they should have a civil partnership. The word “marriage,” I think, puts a lot of people off. You get the same equal rights that we do when we have a civil partnership. Heterosexual people get married. We can have civil partnerships.’

Now, we’re not sure dolly really knows what he’s talking about. Yay civil unions and marriage are one and the same int’ UK (but one without all that God bothering nonsense) but in Californ.I.A. they’re not the same at all. In fact they are très très different, ya hear?

But all this fisticuffs gots our cogsies a-turnin’ and we want to know exactly how you feel about all this gay wedding business? Is it something we should be getting on our high heels about or are we better off without all the trappings of hetero hell? Do lerrusknow…

  1. Dame Elton, come on now. This is a matter of equal rights. I for one can think of nothing more heinous than being betrothed to someone – male, female or otherwise – but as a human being I sure as hell would like the option to give up my hard-earned dosh and liberty to someone just coz I’m a bit lonely come a Sunday evening in front of Little Dorrit on the Cathode Ray Tube.

  2. Elt misses the point. It’s the fact the gays are being denied the right to marry and what them straights have, so should us bents.

  3. ‘I don’t want to be married. I’m very happy with a civil partnership.’ so just because HE doesn’t want to, the rest of us should just lay back and take it. Oh, come to think of it…

  4. Agree. Elton’s just getting into the semantics of it. Sure, ‘marriage’ is a hetero construct based on religion, and I for one know many of my straight friends would prefer a ‘civil partnership’ as opposed to ‘marriage’ for just that reason – but the point here is that the gays in California are not allowed marriage OR civil partnership… they’ve had their right to be legally espoused to their partner taken away from them entirely.
    ps. Religion is evil by definition. Just in case anyone was unsure.

  5. If there is even a 0.0000001% chance I might one day end up married to Elton I’m dead against it.

  7. Letting gays get civil partnershipped instead of married is like letting black people use a water fountain but not the SAME water fountain.

  8. The Americans should be getting angry. Spitroasty has it about right, except that in Americaland – Prop 8 California – the CP laws do not equal the same as the marriage laws.

    If I was a gay Californian, (apart from probably being much more tanned and body-concious gorgeous than I currently am), I’d be wondering why as a tax payer I was being denied the same marriage rights as straight people. I guess I would be lloking at how I could get even with the Mormon Church – who avoid their taxes by being a religion that ‘doesn’t interfere in politics’ !!?? – who bankrolled to the tune of $20 mill, the campaign to ban gay marriage.

    I think I’d probably be doing what a lot of the yankee doodle gays are doing and petitioning the State of California to have a lickle closer looky at the involvement of the Mormon Church in this political campaign and decide whether perhaps they broke their ‘let’s not use our influence to meddle in state affairs’ rule. if by any bizarre twist if fate it is decided they went too far the whole thing could be overturned AND the Mormons could get a fabuloso he-yuge tax ill to boot.

    Who says God don’t love the gays? It’s the 21st century – course he does!
