Good show, Bob! I agree completely. Did something recent inspire you to write this one?
-------------------------------
Carrie - 2004-02-05 09:03:08
Have to agree with ya, get it done and over with, we aren't a bunch of prudes anymore. Gay people do exist.
-------------------------------
Anyabeth - 2004-02-05 09:04:12
WORD. Seriously, WORD.
-------------------------------
helderheid - 2004-02-05 09:05:44
You said it!! It's a civil rights issue, plain and simple.
-------------------------------
Jess - 2004-02-05 09:09:37
amen
-------------------------------
Heather - 2004-02-05 09:10:43
Thank you, Uncle Bob. I couldn't have said it better.
-------------------------------
Craig - 2004-02-05 09:18:14
I second that Amen.
-------------------------------
Julia - 2004-02-05 09:20:08
I agree with you 100% I can't stand the ignorance that surrounds this issue and I hope I can see the day when everyone is treated equally and given the same rights.

I love that show. That show kicks ass. You kick ass for mentioning that show. Jerri Blank is my idol. I'm on academic probation. I nailed my dorm room door shut because of that show. It inspires me so. I know every word to every show. I want to major in it but they're trying to evict me Uncle Bob. P.S. I'm not really crazy.

April Ann - 2004-02-05 09:26:05
Not only just what you said, but let them deal with paying for divorce proceedings as well. All kidding aside, though, hooah and stuff. People are people, no matter what they prefer in bed.
-------------------------------
Stevie - 2004-02-05 09:29:24
Better yet, eliminate all of the tax consequences, etc., that go along with ALL marraiges. Leave it up to companies to decide the criteria for benefit coverages for partners and/or dependents (same sex or otherwise.)
-------------------------------
Kyara - 2004-02-05 09:31:32
Couldn't agree more. What's the big damn deal anyway? Let 'em get married!
-------------------------------
a girl - 2004-02-05 09:37:26
bob. you are so right. glad to see that so many people agree.
-------------------------------
Jane - 2004-02-05 09:43:45
I've always liked you, Uncle Bob. Now I love you! One of my best friends is a gay woman who is in love with her partner and plans to spend her life with her, and I'm sick of people telling her that "domestic partnership" laws are basically the same as marriage and that she should be content with that. As the Mass. Justices so eloquently wrote in their opinion, "The history of our nation has demonstrated that separate is seldom, if ever, equal."
-------------------------------
Weetabix - 2004-02-05 09:53:09

Well said, Uncle Bob!

Revi - 2004-02-05 10:23:00
Rock on, Uncle bob!! Seriously now.
-------------------------------
Ruth - 2004-02-05 10:39:01
Word up. I was just getting equally pissed off about this today. How can leaders even call a country "egalitarian" when such blatant hypocracy abounds?
-------------------------------
Lyzz - 2004-02-05 10:44:44
Dude, you rock. But then, I'm from San Francisco and we've been saying this shit for years.
-------------------------------
Amanda - 2004-02-05 10:56:11
Thanks for speaking out. It's kind of frustrating after a while that a handful of people are holding an entire part of the country behind. My aunts are actually two of the people that filed against the state of Indiana for this... so hopefully whomever is in office next gets a clue.
-------------------------------
Craig Zwicker - 2004-02-05 11:05:39
I would second the motion carried out by bob. Unclebob is right, after all, gay folks should have the right to be as miserable (Or happy) as other married couples. After all, if this gets legalized, then divorce lawyers can have more work, and let's face it ppl, it's all about the lawyers in a marriage! :P Either that, or more guys can be happy. Just as long as I don't get some dude proposing to me, it's all good in the world. *Grinning with thumbs up, and waiting for that special 6 foot 2 greek woman to come along*
-------------------------------
Lorrie the attorney - 2004-02-05 11:06:38
I agree, but hey, gay people listen up--your taxes will actually INCREASE if you are allowed to legally marry. This year it's for any income over 58K I think. Google "marriage penalty" and see if I ain't right. To protect yourself, until you can marry, just visit a lawyer and have a Living Will and Power of Attorney drawn up. Oh and a will. Your partner will be able to inherit, visit you in the hospital, and decide if it's time to pull the plug. They are quite inexpensive and absolutely vital.
-------------------------------
kim - 2004-02-05 11:07:36
wait a minute. if every single person who commented on your diary entry agreed with you then what of the purported 60% of americans polled that said they would support a consitutional ban on gay marriages? huh? whuh? incidentally, i'm queer and, not surprisingly, in favor of gay marriage. are the polls wrong or maybe the internet is just non-representational?
-------------------------------
babydove - 2004-02-05 11:13:43
Woa! Finally! I'm getting so sick of this, it's revolting. Why treat them differently?! They love, feel, eat, sleep, walk, breath and most importantly... bleed... like the rest of us. Their blood and brains are no different than ours, so why all this commotion? Let them be happy! For some people, only the sanctity of marriage finalizes their union... let them have their measly piece of paper so that they can proudly proclaim they're married! Rawk on, Bobbers!!!!!!
-------------------------------
Adam LMNOP - 2004-02-05 11:20:02
I'll add to this pile of positivity. Bob, you are the man for saying something important and reasonable. Congratulations to everyone else on this list as well for kicking 10% of the ass that Bob does. We all rock.

UncleBob, I heart you. I find it so interesting that online journalists are so overwhelmingly liberal, however. Where the fuck are the republicans?

Well said UB I agree too.
-------------------------------
patty - 2004-02-05 12:16:40
Dear Uncle, thank you so much for agreeing with most of us - my son is gay and is very much in love. He has become quite an activist on the subject of equal rights for all couples and I constantly applaud him for his efforts. The world would be such a better place if we could all see past the ignorance of separatism. Hopefully that makes sense.
-------------------------------
Gerry - 2004-02-05 12:19:42
The Republicans are over here. At least that's how I'm registered. And no, I don't think that Uncle Bob readers are representative of the population in general. Uncle Bob readers have an advanced sense of humor. Rock on, Uncle Bob.

As a true Republican and not one of those bible-thumping hypocrites that garner all of the media attention, I could not care less who sleeps with whom. And none of my conservative friends care, either. In fact, the only friend I have that is offended by homosexuality is an ulta-liberal graduate of UNC Chapel Hill. Go figure...

Pisser - 2004-02-05 12:46:58
Kim, you are right. The Internet is non-representational - I think because most people on it have at least a quarter of a brain. Love is love. I think the only people who are offended by that aren't getting enough. Thanks, Unc!

Bob! You the MAN! Tell it like it IS! Woo hoo!
-------------------------------
carolyn - 2004-02-05 13:43:13
I couldn't agree more. What I love is how Bush keeps using the term "impose". The MA judges have "imposed" this, etc. Allowing gay marriages won't hurt any straight people nor will it somehow lessen the "sanctity" of their straight marriages. Christ! Live and let live.
-------------------------------
Nancy - 2004-02-05 13:57:47
Thanks Uncle Bob. I live in Massachusetts and I am so very proud that this might start in this cold, but wonderful state. May all states follow suit soon. Bye the way, I have been using the "in 30 years we will be embarrassed by the blantant bigotry we displayed like we did back in the 50's" argument for years now. I think it is a great theory, and it works for me. Keep on with your good self.
-------------------------------
kimberly - 2004-02-05 14:12:47
totally agree with everything you said. i could care less if gay people get married and have the same rights as straight people. it's simply none of my business what they do and it doesn't even affect me. if only more people would feel the same way! i live in ohio and our state just adopted the ban on gay marriages. BOOOO!!!!
-------------------------------
Mark P - 2004-02-05 14:37:16

Hear hear!! I want to ask those married people who say they want to keep marriage "safe" by making sure same-sex unions cannot be made legal, just what the heck is scaring them. In what way is THEIR marriage going to be affected by ANYONE else's, gay or not?

The internet is representational. It has its conservatives, its fucktards, its bigots, and everything else. Uncle Bob's diary, however, isn't. Diaryland is, as we all know, meant for twelve year old girls to babble about their boyfriends and the school dance and how oh my god their parents totally don't understand them. ;) Uncle Bob, I agree with you whole heartedly. Whether or not someone gets the jibblies thinking about what you do in the bedroom doesn't give them the right to try to downgrade you to a second class citizen and prevent you fundamental rights given to everyone else despite what *they* do to give you jibbles in the bedroom.
-------------------------------
Tara - 2004-02-05 17:45:52
I agree to everything everyone has already said. There's not much else to say about you, Uncle Bob. I just love you. ::muah:: You're the greatest.

Seattle Suz - 2004-02-05 17:47:20
Right on, UB! Add another big, wet, juicy Thank You for speaking out on this issue that’s not really as controversial as “they’d” have us believe. I do care very much if others are marginalized and oppressed. Remember the eloquent and timeless words of Rev. Martin Niemoeller. States rights and smaller Gov’t hypocrisy aside, what I’d really like to say to the nasty mole in the White House in my glorious little girl voice is, “Mind your own fuckin’ beeswax, ass.” (Yeah, lots of soap in my past: obviously didn’t work.)

Wow. Cool. Uncle Bob, Gay Icon. Has a ring to it, don't it? In all seriousness though, huzzah to you, you fine gentleman, for your sterling work in proving that the country that brought us spray-on cheese can also bring us some damn rational people. Although don't stop putting the irrational ones on Jerry Sprnger, because we all laugh our arses off at that.

I'm proud of you, Uncle Bob. I don't believe everything I read on the internet but if you are who you say you are--defending his gay brethren, giving up respect for his female co-workers, putting the wife and kid first--then you really are some kind of 21st century he-man! And even if you aren't this was a nice post.

I believe the folks in Chelsea would be behind you 110%. I'm definitely with you when you say, "The days of discrimination against anyone, be it by color, sexual preference or handicap should be over." Amen, sir, you certainly said it. Question is, is anyone with clout listening?

You GO Uncle Bob!!! I couldn't agree more. I was raised by lesbians (not quite as cool as being raised by wolves, and there was probably alot more hair involved...but that's another post. We are supposed to be allowed the "pursuit of happiness" and that means all of us. People should not be judged on what other people assume goes on in their bedroom! Not to mention, just how is gay marriage going to jeaopordize the sanctity of straight marriage when obviously paying people a million dollars to hook up and get married on national television does not? Let them get married. Let them get divorced. Just let them be...
-------------------------------
Tricia - 2004-02-06 00:42:32
UB-- I'm from Massachusetts, and am (shocking) a liberal Democrat. I, of course, am behind gay marriage. What is shocking is how many conservative Republicans in this state actually agree with me. P.S. When I saw the report on TV this morning that Bush had scorned Massachusetts for infringing on the "sanctity of marriage" I almost threw up. UB for Pres ... down with GB!!!
-------------------------------
Rudy - 2004-02-06 08:48:03
Uncle Bob, you're my favoritest uncle ever. As a gay man who longs for the day when he can have full civil rights, I thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for saying this. Susie has a wonderful husband and Andrew has a wonderful father. You rock my casbah!
-------------------------------
Courtney - 2004-02-06 08:55:14
I also live in MA and while the Mass SCJ made it clear that full marriage rights were all they would accept, the legislature is still looking for any way it can find to get out of it. We're almost there, but we're gonna have to fight every step of the way until May, and probably beyond. If you want to help, visit: www.massequality.org or www.ftmmass.org

Your Canadian cousin checking in from the Great White North. Same sex marraige has been allowed by law... or rather the law disallowing it was struck down (and has yet to be replaced),since last spring. The Feds. are talking about introducing some sort of watered down bill that would reconize Gay unions with out calling it marriage. The genie is out of the bottle, thousands have already tied the knot. Many have traveled from near by American states. The right wing got a little crazy about it at first but after a bit,most everyone calmed down. Now the attitude in "Amsterdam North" is -- What makes Gays so damn special?? They should have to live in loveless, sexless marriages like the rest of us.

-------------------------------
Scone - 2004-02-06 21:21:34
I agree with you Uncle Bob, but I frankly don't see why more people don't see this situation as descrimiating against a person and denying them equal rights. It seems pretty clear cut to me. I think that people who are apposed to gay marraiges need to logically examine their belifs to really find out the truth and hopefully break down the intolerant barriers that they have. In a previous post one person mentioned that 60% of all Americans were against gay marraige, and while I might be stereotyping myself here I think that today's youth is more tolerant than the older generations of people, but that they are not yet "counted" in polls and elections that affect this country. And that the twenty somethings who don't vote are doing a disservice to themselves and to this country. OK that was a bit longer than expected. I hope that i didn't bore you with my ramblings
-------------------------------
Ronjoe - 2004-02-06 21:57:34
I'm baffled by the whole idea that gay marriage will have any effect at all on straight marriage. I've had one terrible marriage and now one that fills me with joy on a daily basis. I don't see how either one was affected by anyone elses sexuality. Let them have the rights everyone else has. Why is this even an issue?
-------------------------------
MegBlum - 2004-02-07 10:51:44

Dally - 2004-02-10 06:06:21
If we all feel this strongly then why can't we do something about it...? the reason these laws haven't been passed is because the wrong ppl are being voted in... and those ppl are being voted in because they spout the crap about homosexuals being evil and unnatural... THEY get the voters to go out and vote because they are so pathetically blinded to the truth.. and the uneducated masses fall for it... so if we really all believe in this then stand up for it! not just in a feedback forum but in EVERY forum you can.. not just online but in real life as well!!! UnkyBob has only said what all of us are thinking!!! (all power to ya unkybob we ALL love you) BTW miss 2k is just a wack job who can be put into the "uneducated masses" category :D Love ya's!!
-------------------------------
Miss-2k - 2004-02-11 19:31:11
Wack job? why I otta... Miss Dally best be thanking her lucky stars they haven't figured out a device that lets you stab people in the face over the internet. That's all I'm saying.

Maggie - 2004-02-15 17:14:43
Uncle Bob, I'm going to have to be the minority here, and disagree. As soon as gays are allowed to get married, the next step, and the crucial one is that they are going to want to have kids. It's hard enough being a kid with a mom and a dad, or just one or the other. It will be even harder to be a kid with gay parents. Kids are just cruel. It's inherent, they just are! It's tough to be the kid with glasses, or the big nose, or the one with the zit in the middle of their forehead. Try being one of those kids and having gay parents on top of it. How about some of the old childhood lines? For instance - "My Dad will beat up your Dad.". That will become - "My Mom will beat up your Dad", and who wants to be the Dad who got beat up by a chick wearing a strap on? How masculine is that? How about - "That's my Dad"! said with pride and joy! That will now be - "That's the one that 'plays' the Dad....yep, that butch looking one over there..." Or how about the old saying "Opposites attract"? Last time I checked, the sexes were still opposite....two different sexes. Being homosexual is not opposite...it's the same. How with this effect traditional families? I've got an answer for that one, too! Again, it goes back to the kids....do you want to explain WHY Fred is kissing George, or Suzie is kissing Mary? Like my daughter told me when I posed the question to her about gays being allowed to marry - "That's just icky, Mom!" Eventually, with having it living right next door to you and having gays in your kid's faces all the time, the innocents ARE going to ask those heavy questions. How do we as parents handle those questions? Are we to sit back and explain in the third person, scientifically, and make it seem as thought all is right with the world that being gay is acceptable? If we allow gays to marry, what is next? Is bestiality ok? Should pedophilia be ok? Oops! Wait, the Catholic Church has already condoned that one. Isn't this world screwed up enough without condoning one more thing? When will it stop....when everything is acceptable, and nothing is considered "wrong"?
-------------------------------
Dally - 2004-02-24 01:42:30
Miss2k... and maggie... my gosh... how small minded and discriminative do you want to be? 50 years ago ppl were saying the same thing about having *gasp* black *gasp* men living next door... and *gasp* mixed *gasp* marriages between black/white/yellow/red whichever... i say all power to the san fransicans!! how can you turn around and say that two ppl who love each other and yes their kids as well is "wrong"? I have an 11 yo sister who i am responsible for for the majority of the time and i am bi sexual.. and she has known about my sexuality her entire life and is fine with it she knows that dally likes girls and boys and thats alright with her.. she also knows that sexuality is a personal thing and what is right for me may not be right for her... I would be just as proud of my little girl if she was gay/straight/bi/whatever because it is the person that matters not the sexuality... How would YOU feel if you were told you couldn't marry your husband because you were straight? or that your child (who you are obviously raising to be just as discriminative and biggoted as yourself) shouldn't be allwed to be with you because your *gasp* straight? i would rather have a couple who loved each other loved their child and had a loving fmaily and home.. than a couple who fight all time the husband beats the wife and the kids and isn't stable at all... it isn't a matter of what sex or sexuality the person is it's the amount of love they have inside of them that matters... and miss 2k.. your a homophobic biggot.. so yeah i think your a whack job.. so bring it on ;)
