Stephen Colbert on the Threat of Straight Men Committing Gay Marriage Fraud: VIDEO


Stephen Colbert highlights Georgia GOP Chairwoman Sue Everhart's recent remarks that gay marriage is not right because same-sex couples "do not have the equipment" for a sexual relationship and that the whole thing is a set-up for heterosexuals who lie about their sexuality to pretend to get gay-married and collect the benefits.

Says Colbert:

"Yes. A free ride. This entire battle about marriage equality has really been about straight men trying to get free health care. Because if there's one thing I know about straight guys - it's that they will jump at any chance for their peers to think they might be gay... Of course two straight guys getting married for benefits isn't a new scheme. It was blown wide open in the explosive documentary I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry..."

    I mean, come on. Anti-gay prejudice is still so alive here in North America that we have millions of grown adults who are terrified of Coming Out and having people know that they're gay. So yeah, straight people are TOTALLY gonna be jumping at the opportunity to get a taste of the prejudice and hate that keeps untold millions from ever enjoying their lives. Yeah. Totally gonna happen.

  2. I love when people say something like "I know I'm going to get in trouble for this", but they go ahead and get in trouble for "this" anyways. As I've mentioned elsewhere, people like Sue Everhart project their desires on others and they are so troubled by the amount of boundaries they have to apply to themselves, that they just Freudingly let little toads out like "I know I'm going to get in trouble for this".

  4. And a heterosexual "couple" would never ever ever do something like that...

  5. It must be true, actor Jeremy Irons said so.

  6. I think you might want to correct the "AFTER THE JUMP" link.

  7. Let me understand this. So two straight dudes could pretend to get married for free benefits. Using this logic a gay foreigner guy could marry a woman just to get a green card, for example. And this happens all the time. I've been witness of many gays who have done that just for a green card. At the end of the day they do this because current gay Americans don't have the right to sponsor their partners with a green card.

    So this isn't about straights getting a free ride on the system, this is about gays not having recognized the civil rights that they deserve and need.

  8. People do marry to get US citizenship. I don't think two men would go the fudgesicle route just for marriage benefits. And leave Jeremy Irons alone. You're no one Mike.

  10. This woman is just one more nut, it is sad. Colbert is at his best with satire and frank honesty. Ask a real straight man if he could for some financial benefit preform a sexual act that he finds awful.
    Over and over again for the rest of his life. Men don't work like that. Trust me I have some experience.
    It is just sex and because I like it does not mean he should.
