Neil Patrick Harris And Tons of Other Awesome People Are Allowed to Get Married Now!

As I’m sure you’ve heard by now, last night New York legalized gay marriage.  As if this news wasn’t beautiful enough, the word is that this wonderful decision is making other states reconsider their own stances on the issue.  Do you know how glorious it would be if all the states got it together long enough to make marriage legal for everyone?  It would be more glorious than dry humping Justin Timberlake. It would even be more glorious than Katy Perry’s boobs. And are you ready for this? The complete legalization of gay marriage would be EVEN MORE GLORIOUS than The Rock at Splash Mountain.  And that’s almost unbearably phenomenal.

Just to tie this all in to the celebrity gossip world, do you know what this decision means?  It means that beautiful Neil Patrick Harris will finally be able to marry his longtime boyfriend and fellow father, David Burtka, which is obviously fantastic.  Here’s Neil’s celebratory Tweet:

I know there’s still a ways to go (to directly quote a friend on the Facebook, “New York, New York. They embrace being gay while my state tries to make the word illegal! 6 down, 44 to go.”), but I’m a big believer in celebrating the victories.  So you all celebrate your asses off tonight, and I’ll see you in the morning!

  • Ugh.. gross…

    But… like it, hate it, be for it, be agin’ it, it is a complete and utter misplacement of our priorities. That you can take to the bank.

    If the people who want to marry someone of the same sex are contributing materially to restoring the U.S. to a manufacturing giant, I say grant those licenses..

    …. otherwise, go back to school, figure out HOW, and when you DO, go do that gay marriage thing.


    • I hate to break it to you Muttley but there are plenty of people who can get married NOW in hetero relationships who do nothing to contribute to “restoring the U.S.”. Should people have to pass a certain level in school in order to get married? Should they have to pass a test in order to have children? All kidding aside, not every person who can marry now brings anything to table of the world. And there are plenty of people who aren’t married who bring great things. And if this is your theory where does it begin? Where does it end for that matter? Do we make people who aren’t contributing to society get divorced? To we take children away from people who haven’t finished school? What’s the time limit on contributing and what qualifies as contributing. I’m sorry, but your statement is absurd.
