I'm just relieved and happy that Kim Kardashian's right to a 72 day marriage remains fully granted and protected by law in all states

Making all kinds of money off of it and getting all kinds of gifts and freebies (even though you'll deny it) is so very sanctified too.

Don't forget the most holy and sacred part: ratings.

if she could marry women too
she would probably be divorced four or five times by now.

Maybe that will be next

I guess her marriage at age 19 lasted three years, so she did much better then. Maybe this whole divorce thing is a publicity stunt too. Who knows, but whatever way you slice it it makes a mockery of marriage. But she has every (legal) right to.

She says she's a hopeless romantic and falls in love hard. She's not the only one who does that, but maybe it's time to take some time to find out what truly knowing someone and still being "in love" is. What a relationship is completely apart from "romance".

And living real life outside of cameras-that might help too.

Kim Kardashian =
"No one is so useless as to not be able to serve as a bad example."


I hope this is another chink in the armor in the sacredness of marriage. Unfortunately, marriage is the very loose term we use for government-sanctioned, legal unions. There is no reason that gay marriage is not a simple case of equal protection under the law.

Conan O'Brien Officiates Late Night's First-Ever Gay Wedding, Makes Us A Little Weepy

The show, normally broadcast from Los Angeles, has been spending a week in our fair city. And as long as they're here in the state of New York, why not take care of some business? Specifically, Conan announced he had been ordained and would marry Scott Cronick, the show's costume designer and his longtime partner David Gorshein.

Dear Kim,

My mother brought me up to write my thank you notes on Crane's Informal Notes with good penmanship -- but in this case I'm hoping a blog post will suffice to extend to you my deep appreciation, profound thanks and tremendous gratitude.

I am not sure you can appreciate just what a gift it is to have the extraordinarily well-publicized news of the end of your hysterically hyped marriage come the very week our congressional leaders are set to begin debating the Respect for Marriage Act on Capitol Hill.

Seriously. As a marriage equality activist, I cannot thank you enough for your gift of the stunning example of how the gender of the couple saying "I do" clearly has absolutely nothing to do with respect for the institution of marriage. It is a gift -- I promise you -- that will keep on giving.

As we continue to work for family values that value all families and a protect-marriage movement that protects all marriages, we will have your example to add to Britney Spears' 55-hour marriage, Larry King's eight marriages and Newt Gingrich's three (just to name a few) as proof positive that marriage needs protection, all right -- but not from gay and lesbian couples who want to pledge to live together until death do them part.

We will have another great example to contrast to those couples building lives, families and a future without the 1,138 federally protected rights that you and Kris Humphries enjoyed for the 72 days you were married to each other, rights like social security, inheritance, taxation, hospital visitation and immigration status, just to name a few.

We will have another opportunity to talk about the values that make up a marriage; values that transcend the gender and sexual orientation of the couple; values like fidelity, monogamy, mutual affection and respect, careful, honest communication, and love; the values that we in the Episcopal Church have held up as the standards we hold for relationships blessed by our church.

And it will give me the chance to talk about the marriages I know about that actually embody all those traditional values that were so utterly lacking in your $10-million nuptial debacle, like Alec and Jamie, gay men who have been together for 10 years, married since 2008, new parents to a 5-year-old son adopted out of the foster care system, a son they are raising in a stable, loving home, bringing him to Sunday School every Sunday, and teaching him to write thank-you notes on Crane's Informal Notes with good penmanship.

So thank you again, Kim. As we work without ceasing to secure for Alec and Jamie and their family the rights you and Kris threw away after 72 days of marriage, I hope you will know how deeply grateful we are for the "on a silver platter" gift you gave us this week as we head into Senate judiciary hearings on the Respect for Marriage Act and look ahead to the repeal of DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act). Honestly, we just can't thank you enough.

Sincerely,

The Reverend Canon Susan Russell
All Saints Church, Pasadena

Uhoh, there's gonna be gay sex on Glee tonight. I guess they already had lesbian type sex before so maybe it won't be as big of a deal.


Chris Colfer talked to TVLine‘s Michael Ausiello about the upcoming Sex-With-Kurt-And-Blaine episode on Glee, but the Golden Globe winner insists that the subject was handled with great care.

“Prior to getting the script Ryan approached Darren and I and told us that they were doing a virginity episode, and Darren and I just kind of looked at each other with wide eyes like, “Huh? What?,’” Colfer explained. “And while we always have faith in the writers, we were a little skeptical. But then we got the script and shot it and everything was fine. What I thought could be raunchy and over-the-top was just very sweet and emotional"

Alas, Colfer was covered up for his big scene with Criss, since request to wear a tank top was denied: “I think having two gay guys having sex on television was enough. They didn’t want to [reveal] a bunch of skin on top of it. I was like, “I want to wear a tank! Let me wear a tank!” [Ultimately], I wore a T-shirt.”

it's weird -- while i am all for equal depictions of hetero and homo sex, i still find myself slightly uncomfortable with depictions of teenage sex.

Well, as long as the actors are over the age of 18, I don't see the problem. They are portraying what many minors do and that is, explore sexuality.

I do get uneasy about it too for a reason I can't explain. So...

it *is* the degenerate entertainment industry that shows deviant teenagers committing sodomy during the family hour.

so, um, i thought this was the best episode of Glee i've ever seen, aside from the Joss Whedon episode from the first season (and a Kristin Chenoweth solo here and there).

sensitive, emotional, thoughtful ... they all behaved like real people with real thoughts and real motivations, and the editing of the "sex scenes" absolutely reinforced the notion of emotional equality between the hetero and the homo couples.

job well done. i wish every high school show handled sex so sensitively as that episode.

also, it was nice to be reminded of how amazing West Side Story is.

I agree. I thought it was so sensitive and sweet. I was imagining all the people who were outraged when they heard there was going to be some sort of gay male sex scene. Haha, joke's on them. It was much more realistic than the other sex related stuff I've seen on that show.

I hope teens watched it with their parents.

And Brett Ratner is a..well I won't say but he fits every Hollywood male stereotype of a feminine hygiene product.
