How would you feel if your spouse said, “I only got married in an act of defiance against the president.” Even worse, how would you feel if your spouse was Rosie O’Donnell?
Recently Rosie O’Donnell said she got married just to spite George W. Bush:
George Bush, in the middle of a war, had an all-station news conference to announce how horrible it was for the safety of America that gay people were getting married in San Francisco, which pissed me off enough to get on a plane and go get married.
It was like an act of â€¦ defiance â€¦ If youâ€™re gonna count up everybody who you think is not of value and round â€˜em all up and slap a pink triangle on â€˜em.
I just felt like I wanted to be counted amongst the people who [some] were saying were unworthy and not allowed to have the same rights as everyone else.
And Rosie’s spouse marrying her was a direct act of defiance against the “Coalition to Ban Beer Goggles.”
Doesn’t cheapening the institution of marriage in such a way sort of help validate Bush’s point? Just asking.
