As of midnight tonight, gay people in England and Wales can get married without the authorities coming down on their lily-white asses. Or lily-black asses. Or lily-brown asses. You get where we’re comin’.
But in a poll of 1,007 people (count ’em!) for BBC Radio 5, which when we last checked could’ve been anything, a whole fifth of respondents said they’d turn down an invitation to a gay wedding. Which is pretty presumptuous if you ask us.
And of those, men were twice as likely to turn down the invitation as women, lest they get bummed during psalm 73.
59% – that’s almost 60%! – also believe that those opposing equal marriage should not be considered homophobic. It is not known whether this same 59% consider those who oppose mixed-race marriages as racist.
In conclusion, one fifth of Radio Five listeners (Jeeze Louise, even TENA can rope in more respondents) would only insist on a young child – high on Fanta, pigtails just so, sucking up all the attention in the room – dancing on their feet during the reception anyway.
'Fifth of Britons would turn down invitation to gay wedding'. Who'd want those cunts there anyway?,
