Kristen Bell, who back in August proclaimed that it would be tacky for she and fiance Dax Shepard to get married when her gay and lesbian friends could not, took to twitter today to propose to Shepard, inspired no doubt by the historic rulings issued forth on DOMA and Prop 8:

Shepard seemed to accept:

    Now that looks anatomically correct. Like to be a fly on the wall where Mr. Towle is today. I’m sure the line is too long. He’s dedicated his life to queers.

    I like our allies — and compared to the ugly faces of hate-filled bigotry that oppose us, I’ll take Bell and Shepard.

    CONGRATS!

    @YouLikeMe — don’t you have a bridge you should be under?

    I can’t help but feel this a hollow victory in that all our brothers and sisters still don’t have equality in every state.

    You are not equal until everyone is equal.

    Keep up the fight EVERYBODY.

    We shall overcome!

    Er have these two not been paying attention ? We only have gay marriage in a handful of states. The majority of gay people still cannot get married in their home state. The weak, spineless Supreme Court declined to rule on one part of the DOMA case which challenged the constitutionality of gay marriage bans in the individual states.

    “The weak, spineless Supreme Court declined to rule on one part of the DOMA case which challenged the constitutionality of gay marriage bans in the individual states.”

    In no shape or form was the constitutionality of individual state bans before the court in either case. The DOMA case only covered the definition of marriage for Federal purposes.

    Section 2 of DOMA which says that states are not required to recognize marriages from other states is still very much alive and kicking. This part was never up from debate. For that to happen the Supremes will probably have to hear a case brought by a same sex couple that is legally married in one state, and then resides in a state that does not recognize that marriage.

    Ugh, just ugh.

    I just can’t with these attention whores who want to piggy back on such a cause. Not only that, this is a big step toward marriage equality, but there is no EQUALITY until everyone can get married. I wonder if these two Hollywood idiots even know that.

  7. Gabe R L says

    I’m not sure if I like these ‘straight’ allies who say that they won’t marry until everyone can. If a law passes that says that everyone can marry, people marry, and then a new law revokes the previous law, will these ‘straight’ allies get divorced?
