eBay Will Not Let Jamie Frevele Auction Off Her Right to Marry

jamief

Well that was to be expected. eBay has removed Jamie Frevele’s “Right to Marry” auction listing, which Queerty first told you about. Before the Internet giant pulled the listing, Frevele’s bids had topped $300 — all looking to “buy” the heterosexual gal’s right to get married in New York. The auction item was in spirit only (with proceeds benefiting the Point Foundation) but it still ran afoul of eBay’s rules, which bar any items that “include personal opinions, political views, or offensive comments about eBay members” and require auction listings “physically exist.” Well, isn’t that a metaphor for gay marriage?
