No, I joke, but often in lesbian duo, there are a "masculine" girl and a "feminine" boy...
You follow me ?
It makes sense that a gay couple would have a masculine and a feminine partner. 2 feminine women or men would be a very catty combination, and 2
masculine women or men would never get anywhere, because neither of them would ever stop for directions.
I was actually wondering, since the only gay people I've known have been in monogamous relationships, how you felt about the claim that, "gay people
getting married threatens the whole institution of marriage." I've read all the reasons why people believe this, and some gay people have even
claimed it to be true, but it doesn't make any sense to me. Do you have anyone that you wish you could or could've married? I think that the state
has no business selling licenses for marriage in the first place, gay or straight. I feel horrible for people who want nothing more than to make a
vow of their commitment and love to each other, only to be told no by a government that has no business making that decision in the first place.
I am straight, and while I want to have a wedding ceremony for my Love and I, We will not pay the state to give us permission for something that is
our inherent right. Most people, my mother-in-law for one, don't understand our objection to getting a state marriage license. I just don't see
it's importance, other than the legalities.
Anyways, I realize this is off topic but I wanted to hear other gay/lesbian thoughts about this, hopefully without the bigoted nonsense that usually
accompanies this question. Sorry, I hope you don't mind.
