Dolly Parton Thinks Gay Couples Should Be Able To Marry And Suffer Just Like Straights

dolly-parton-main_thumbI think everyone should be with who they love. don’t want to be controversial or stir up a bunch of trouble but people are going to love who they are going to love. I think gay couples should be allowed to marry. They should suffer just like us heterosexuals.”

      Right on, Dolly. You don’t even have to marry them, to experience the Hell that some relationships can be. Not that I’m bitter or anything…

      Nice sentiment but I sure am tired of straight people expressing support for gay marriage by disparaging marriage all together.. Why? My marriage has been one of the most grounding, supportive, loving experiences of my life..

      I have yet to meet a happily married person. Whenever you ask a married man how its going, they grumble. Is it worth it?

      @SpunkyBunks:
      I’ve met one happily married couple (straight) in almost 60 years of living. They have a son, he and his wife are expecting their first and they seem happy. They also have a lesbian daughter who married her partner a year ago, they seem happy. Maybe you learn how to be married from your parents.

      I have to agree with truckproductions.

      When straight people say the gays should be able to get married so they can suffer like the rest of them it comes across, to me at least, like trying to convince a gay couple not to get married. I see the situation like convincing someone not to eat the last piece of pizza, “Yes eat it, you’ll get fat” – thus making them not want to eat it.

      Plus why is Dolly Parton’s opinion on Gay Marriage relevant?

      Dolly Parton has been speaking out for gay rights for 30 years ! She has always said that if she was to be reincarnated she would want to come back as a drag queen.
      She has been very vocal over the years about her support for gay rights even when it has been detrimental to her career and way before it was considered cool.

      I’m rather sure Dolly’s comment was tongue-in-cheek. Years ago, in a TV ducumentary about Big Hair, wigs, etc., Dolly said, paraphrasing, “I always thought that if I hadn’t been a real girl, I’d have been a dragqueen!”

      Yeah, Dolly’s no doubt being a bit tongue-in-cheek, but there is truth in her words. I’m not sure it’s so much marriages that are unhappy, but rather long-term relationships in general. It seems that most (not all) have a shelf life, and I can honestly say that the majority of the relationships I’ve observed up close, and that have lasted more than, say, five years, seem to be more grounded in mutual hatred, resentment and dependence than love. No doubt there are exceptions, but this is probably a natural byproduct of a culture that tells people that a “successful relationship” is one of the prerequisites to being a well-adjusted, contributing member of society.

      she was teasing- Dolly’s always joking- she’s one of our few allies in the country world, let’s not run her off!

      @truckproductions: Agreed, not sure how she thinks putting a negative spin on such a significant civil right helps. Maybe she needs to take of that wig and let some blood flow into her brain.

      True story. I can’t think of one happy married couple lol Every married person I know seems miserable and I try to have as little contact with them as possible.

      @Spike: That is Dolly’s brand of humor, your taking it way too seriously. She is an ally not an enemy.
