Will Older Gay Men Who Choose Not To Be Married Be Discriminated Against, Wonders John Waters
A series of questions posed by John Waters in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter seems to run parallel with the screams emitted by homophobes immediately after the Supreme Court ruled in favor of marriage equality. "NOW WE ALL HAVE TO GET GAY MARRIED," too many a bigot cried last week.
John is concerned that with full federal marriage rights now afforded to same-sex couples in 13 states and D.C. he'll be an outcast and discriminated against for not wanting to get married.
“Now what will they call gay men like myself who choose not to be married?" John asks. "There’s no name for us. Will we be discriminated against in our old age? Ah, a new chapter in the gay struggle.”
I think John's machinating drama out of fear over the death of gay culture. Fret not, John, the inclusive community will always have a place for its aging bachelors. But if John's still worried about his reluctance to marry in a post-DOMA world, maybe he should move to one of the 37 states that still discriminate against LGBT couples?
What do you think of John Waters' concerns, Instincters?
