All Of Today‘s ‘Modern Love’ Couples Are Beautiful + Smiling. None Of Them Gay

So much for all the fracas surrounding the Today show banning gay couples from its “Modern Love” contest, then reversing its decision: No same-sexers made the final four, announced today.

      None of these contestants appear to be interracial and the men appear to be taller than the women.

      And they’re all rather telephotogenic.

      So. The. Fuck. What.

      Get over yourselves, Queerty. Being gay isn’t the be-all, end-all of existence. There are days when our not being chosen for a contest just boils down to the luck of the draw and not some sinister, mass-distributed new-media plan to marginalize us from society.

      Grow up.

      @Andrew: What does skin color have to do with the article?

      Jus looking at the four couples and you can pretty much guess the judges were a bunch of hetrosexual males. All the women are about ten notches higher on the hotness scale than the guys. Only one of the guys can be considered somewhat hot………

      what self-respecting gay couple would want to go on a vapid, lame program like the Today Show anyhow? (their marriage episode is one notch above dreck like The Bachelorette)

      I don’t see any Asians in the final four either. THE TODAY SHOW HATES ASIAN PEOPLE

      Should we be surprised?

      Now, has this contest been on GMA, at least one queer couple would be in the mix.

      Meh, whatever. My friend’s sister made it, voted for her. This isn’t something we need to be up in arms over, it’s freaking petty.

      I don’t even know what this contest is, but I doubt that they made the conscious decision to exclude gay couples from the final four. It’s likely that the straight couples won fairly, which isn’t a big deal…

      Well, this was certainly a giant travesty of justice and a colossal slap in the face of human rights, what, two months ago? Perhaps if you can somehow link Target, this thing can grow new legs.

      I don’t even consider these couples as modern straight couples. When i think of modern couples i think of interracial couples and couples that are not the norm. Get it together Today Show.
