      @DShucking: I was thinking the exact same thing! And you know which ones will do it too.

      Gay marriage is humanizing at the personal level but the way it was presented at the Grammys was de-humanizing. The participants were also exploited by Madonna and Macklemore.

      @jimbryant: I’m sure that the couple in picture above would completely disagree.

      It was a ground breaking moment and I am happy for all the lucky couples gay and straight…I cannot understand the bitter peanut gallery here.

      For what it’s worth, I though the whole thing was great. Is it something I would want to do? No. But at the end of the day, the only opinions that truly matter are those of the couples who participated. If they’re happy with it, good for them and nothing but best wishes for all of them and thanks for sharing your special day with the rest of us.

      @DShucking: I don’t necessarily WANT to be negative, it’s just the thought of someone going “I know what I want to do, instead of having a private moment I should be sharing with friends and family, I want to have it ON TELEVISION” is kind of a gross, psychopathic thought process.

      To me at least.

      Anyone who has that much of an urge to be on television is guaranteed to have some sort of personality disorder.

      @boring: Excuse me. I think it may behoove you to refresh your memory on the definition of psychopathy. I don’t necessarily want to kvetch, but your comment IS a bit extreme. Unless of course you are a qualified psychoanalyst, then I would just call you a quack.

      @boring: You’ve definitely gone off the rails with your dramatic slurs against these people. But I’m sure you are just as emotionally invested in railing against straight couples who kiss when the jumbotron camera focuses on them at a sports game, or when a man proposes to a woman in public via skywriter, or all the marriages filmed for reality TV.

      @DShucking: Jumbotron’s creepy in the forced aspect of it all and not on the people themselves kissing. Everything else though? Ranges from kinda sick to super gross, regardless of gender.

      @boring: So you’re okay with couples being physically intimate in public but getting married in public is psychopathic. Whoosh.

      @DShucking: Specifically to be broadcasted on network television on the Grammys during a staged photo-op publicity stunt? Yes.

      If you can’t tell the difference between the two… Woosh, I guess.

      To put it more bluntly: the desire to be seen on television in almost ANY capacity is a sure-fire sign of mental illness regardless of race, gender, sexuality, et al. and the entertainment industry, as a whole, is ultimately reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally grody.

      @DShucking:
      How many of these persistently negative trolls do you think are one & the same?
      Similar phrases, language, illogical reasoning…

      @alanj: I know. I wondered the same but it’s still possible that you can have a number of trolls on the same site. We seem to be outnumbered here.

      @alanj: So you don’t find the need for a spotlight to be just a little disconcerting? A little sad, a little weird, a little desperate? Nothing wrong with celebrity culture and its overall effect on society?

      And I’m not jimbryant if that’s what you’re thinking. I have a sense of humor.

      For example: the fact that these guys met on match.com in 2011 is the funniest thing I’ve read all day.

      I can’t wait to hear the story about the couple Jim and Dave, who met through Friendster last year.

      @boring: Pardon me dear,judging from your posts I really do not think that you are qualified to determine mental illness.You sound as if you are fixated on the entire event and also have an unhealthy obsession with celebrities and public ceremonies, this was after all in Los Angeles and weddings have historically been public and are by nature a show or display involving large numbers of people, an often public declaration of union and fidelity.

      @boring: I suppose you would also consider Vegas weddings to be the product of an unstable mind if done by an Elvis impersonator or the wedding announcements made by wealthy people or a Jewish wedding.I myself have been to many weddings and most of them are painfully boring.I am sure at this point we can both agree to disagree.

      I’m amazed by the number of psychoanalysts who comment on this site. Personally, I’ll trust people to know and express their own feelings. I’m not an advocate for gay marriage, but if someone tells me it makes him feel empowered, whole, accepted, equal, liberated or whatever, I’ll take him at his word.
