Today Wedding Contest Open to Gays, So Long As You Choose Who’s the Bride and Groom

On the application website for the Today show’s wedding contest, where the program will pay for (and videotape for air, natch) a dream ceremony for a lucky couple, there are only forms for to fill in the names of the “bride” and “groom.” In prior wedding contests, producers have made clear same-sex couples are eligible, so this isn’t really evidence that Today is trying to discriminate against the gays. Just that the network with a freakin’ peacock for a mascot also thinks one of us is always “the man” or “the woman.”

UPDATE: Today now says the contest is for heteros only.

      Exactly. Spare us your antiquated notions, Today. And, btw, Queerty… Don’t type the word “natch” ever again. It has to be one of the biggest douchebag terms this side of ginormous. End rant.

      This is bullshit!! What is it with these freaks that must pair us off as “Who’s the man and who’s the woman.” It is completely offensive!

      Yeah, it IS stupid and offensive. I am a feminine lesbian whereas my spouse is a lot more butch but never have either of us thought that one of is a woman and the other a man–and that is exactly what I tell anyone who asks.
