Oprah Panel: How Does One Know if Someone is Gay?


Oprah and her panel of experts — Jenny McCarthy, Gayle King, Nate Berkus, and Hugh Jackman — on Friday pondered same-sex marriage and the question, how do you know if someone is gay? They also talk to a lesbian couple in Iowa.

Watch it, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. How is Jenny McCarthy considered an expert on *anything*? She probably thinks that vaccines cause homosexuality.

  2. Gays should be allowed to get married.WITHOUT ANY QUESTION.THAT IS THE TRUTH.THAT IS A CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT.You BIGOTS dont seem to get that marriage equality should be and should have been a right a LONG time ago.This is about basic humanity and has NOTHING to do with the opinions of a right winged anti-gay bigot.

    Yes absolutely,more than 50% of heterosexual marriages end in divorce.Some dont even last past 5 years.Some only stay together and use their children as an excuse to stay married and at some point the children get caught up in the middle of it (I know I was the child that got caught up in the middle of his parents divorce).There are heteros who get married 2-3 different times..Str8 people are well known for taking for granted their right to marry.Yet the bigots feel it necessary to take the right away from a gay or lesbian couple which has been together for 20 or more years.Oh how the mighty hypocrites have spoken.

    Also there are many str8 couples who shouldnt even be allowed to reproduce.Some heteros should have a permit to do so.Its so easy for heteros to pop out on child after another after another (Just ask the Palin family).

  3. I don't understand all the stories about closeted male celebrities sleeping with guys and making them sign "non-disclosure agreements" to keep them quiet. If someone had physical proof he'd slept with a star (which would be tricky but not impossible), and went public with it, then suing that person based on a non-disclosure agreement would simply prove he was telling the truth.

    Maybe if a celebrity paid a professional escort a lot of money to keep his silence, but the average gay guy is going to be hard-pressed to not spill the beans to his friends simply because of some legally dubious agreement. Non-disclosure applies to business and intellectual property...not sure how it would apply to sex.

  4. Hugh looked really uncomfortable during that conversation. I wonder if he knew Oprah was going to lead the conversation in that direction before he sat down.

  5. Is the young-looking TV/movie star who has plated gay and who bears a striking resemblance to a major star...Scott Wolf?

  6. NATE: I find him hot until he designs something hideous... Then I question how gay he REALLY is, lol.
    GALE: Shut up! Someone just interupt her already.
    JENNY: ZZZzzzzzZZZZzzzzzz...
    HUGH: Funny looking head, hot body.
    OPRAH: Give it up, bitch! We know not all of that is your real hair!! And yeah, I love you. Just a bit.

  7. So my 67 year old father and his 66 year old wife who are too old to have children should never have been able to marry?

    Wow, i better warn them that the marriage police are coming to break them up since they cannot have children.

    (How are people so intensely stupid??)

  8. Oprah is ridiculous, Hugh Jackman makes me yawn, and the other three I have *no* comment on. What a piece, alright ...

  9. Hey Sarah - when straight people start taking marriage seriously then maybe, just maybe, I'll feel as if they have the right to claim marriage as belonging only to them. So let's all opt for a REAL marriage amendment - One Man, One Woman, One Time - Outlaw Divorce. We need to truly honor and respect the "sanctity of marriage" - you marry'em you keep'em!
