  4. I'm all for love and equality, but we are aware that marriage is truly a state, not an act, right? In my family, the only couple that has lasted is the one whose marriage was not "licensed." Before we go running after Prince Charming, ask all the heteros with only fairytales in their eyes how that's worked out for them.

    That said, marry whoever you want. Everyone else is.

    Which at the end of the day, is sorta the point.

  5. Oh dear. Who left the door open & let these sourpusses in? My partner & I have been together twenty one years - the last three of them legally married. Something wrong with us? Who cares?

  9. England sure has a lot of bisexuals. Not that many gays...of those willing to call themselves gay or homosexual. The Brit government recently published an allegedly exhaustive survey which including sexuality questions. 1.5% of Brits admitted to homosexuality. A comparable recent U.S. survey showed a MUCH higher number of gays, and almost 20% of U.S. males admitting to having same sex experiences. Why the differences?

  10. Rat, Stonewall refuted those statistics. Biggest load of tosh. The guys in my boarding school...well, we will leave it at that!

    Patrick was in a relationship with a women for years.

  14. @Ophu, maybe you need to get over your defensiveness. No one said anything remotely critical of bisexuals.

  15. God, I hope the proposal wasn't a tweet.

  16. Loved the song. As another poster said - very 80's. Hope he and his mate have many happy years together.

  17. Not being defensive, Paul. Just hammering a point home. Again and again and again.

  18. His last two albums were amazing...and his music should be far more recognized than it is.

    Congrats to Patrick and his man!

  19. What's up with GetEQUAL commenting everywhere and claiming that if we all give them money they'll do something?
