David Letterman Lets His Anger About Anti-Gay Discrimination Rip in Discussion with Rachel Maddow: VIDEO

Letterman_maddow

David Letterman had a sit down with Rachel Maddow last night and let his opinion about marriage equality and frustration over anti-gay discrimination rip:

"I'm just sick and tired, and I think it has really crossed the line of being nonsense. This ongoing, politically nuanced, religiously nuanced discussion of gay marriage, gay rights. It is absolute stupidity....Humans have the right to do what humans do, that’s it. End of  story. There’s no argument. There’s no exceptions. Humans have rights and they get to do what humans get to do. Case closed. Good night."

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

I'll try to find a longer segment to post.

  1. @Joanne:

    What are you doing here trolling a gay blog? And who is against straight marriage? No one is trying to ban straight marriage, you stupid goose. When the US lifted the ban on interracial marriage, was anyone suggesting to ban marriage between two people of the same race? The point here is equal rights.

    Not even going to comment on your spectacularly stupid comment on homosexuality being "unnatural". XD

    And yeah, in some states most people think interracial marriage is still wrong and that black people are lesser human beings. Thankfully the state protects minorities from bigots like you and them.

  2. Time to play the Gish Galluping Game.

    "I am dissapointed that David has these Liberal views"

    Where have you been the last few decades?

    "I think gay marriage is so wrong"

    Your "thought" process is duly noted.

    "gayness is unnatural"

    Wrong. Google "homosexuality in nature." Is this an example of your previously noted "thoughts?"

    "the gays need therapy"

    I agree that some gays need therapy. Just like some straights need therapy. Have you looked into it?

    "not marriage"

    Equal treatment under the law is a right, even if it's not a "necessity."

    "This is what most people really think but they won't say it!"

    Wrong. Most reputable polling shows a growing majority accepting marriage equality.

    "Since when has it been wrong to believe in marriage between a man and a woman."

    Nobody is making that argument. we're looking for an expansion to marriage, not it's elimination. You're looking to limit it.

    "It's only the way our bodies are designed."

    My lovely, lovely, prostate gland was designed to be best stimulated from the inside. Another argument failure.

    "Get real people."

    I would say the same to you since you have an apparently skewed view of reality. Again, have you considered therapy? It can help.

    Thanks for playing the Gish Galluping Game. But nobody goes away a loser. You've won a nice reality check. Spend it wisely.

  3. We have to remember that for many heterosexuals being born straight was the only thing they had going for them in the world. Now with society changing insecure straights are bound to feel somewhat diminished in the same way that poor whites felt when racial segregation ended in the South.

  4. @Joanne...I bet that my cock would slip right inside your husband's ass, as designed.

  5. @Jake: Given those comments, you might like the following political cartoon - http://www.trbimg.com/img-515a7569/turbine/la-na-tt-las-vegas-wedding-20130401-001/600 . It is a real classic - too bad that "Joanne" most likely would not get it.

  6. I'd have more respect for Rachel if she told us what exactly she does with another woman. Then I'd feel better about what we are "supporting" Otherwise she should stick to Field Hockey and grooming horses.

  7. Letterman doesn't care about gays. He's just venting about getting caught with one of his staff years ago. Sexual shame is his game.

  8. @Goal,

    I can tell you fairly closely what Rachel Maddow does with the woman she loves.

    She shares her life, love, dreams, aspirations, frustrations,tribulations, vacations, family, stories from work,stories from her commute TO work, and just about aspect her daily life.

    She also argues with, cries with and over, and gets angry at the person she loves.

    And I've little doubt her partner does the same with her.

    You know, exactly like a "traditional" marriage.

    You're welcome.

  9. Poor Joanne! Acronym Jim is really wiping the floor with her. Now wait till Kiwi starts in......!

    Joanne, let me tell you from experience that if you plan to stay on Towleroad your views on gay rights will become more liberal. Either that or you'll be hounded off the board with insults. I don't envy you since I've been where you are. Try to warm up to the idea of gay rights. It's happening.

  10. Thanks Mary?

    But to be clear, I wasn't wiping the floor with her. I was just cleaning up her detritus.

  11. @Jim But if she didn't do the "one thing" or "those things" they wouldn't be together would they?

  12. Sharp, are you responding to my reply to "Goal?"

    If so, read it again. The crux is that gay relationships are no different than straight relationships when it comes to the things that really matter.

    Unless, of course, if the thing that really matters to you is the cheap thrill of the fantasy that doesn't really apply to you...

  13. Joanne did it ever occur to you that we find straight relationships unnatural? Think about it. We relate best to members of our own sex because we are familiar with their reactions, their bodies, their attitudes, etc...
    To stray off course to a whole other sex is just plain odd to us, but we put up with it because they are our parents and siblings some times....
