Elton John: “Being Married Isn’t About Whether You’re Straight Or Gay”

I know a lot of people, and perhaps especially religious people, will say that David and I should count ourselves lucky for living in a country that allows civil partnerships, and call it quits there…Well, I don’t accept this. I don’t accept it because there is a world of difference between calling someone your ‘partner’ and calling them your ‘husband’. ‘Partner’ is a word that should be preserved for people you play tennis with, or work alongside in business. It doesn’t come close to describing the love that I have for David, and he for me. In contrast, ‘husband’ does. A ‘husband’ is somebody that you cherish forever, that you would give up everything for, that you love in sickness and in health. Until the law recognises David Furnish is my husband, and not merely my partner, the law won’t describe the man I know and adore….Wouldn’t it be a huge source of national pride if we led, rather than just followed, the currents of history, and became one of the first countries in the world to say being married isn’t about whether you’re straight or gay, but about whether you’re human?”

Sir Elton John writes in The Independent, supporting its petition forĀ  marriage equality in England.

      Eloquent and to the point. See, Elton, you can still do it when you’re not being a bitchy queen for no reason.

      After taking a million dollars from Limbaugh to sing at his FOURTH wedding, who gives flying monkey crap what Elton, the nasty, fat, pus-filled pimple-covered old queen has to say about anything?!?!?

      @hf2hvit: Evidently the media do, given that they conducted the interview.

      I like the snark though, it’s almost like you had a point, but then didn’t.

      He looks like a turnip and his relationship is worthless to society.

      Fat ugly rich and creepy. Oh baby I am just so flaccid right now. He could never get laid otherwise. We homos have standards. You have to be hot or rich period. I hooked up with my man 23 years ago when I was hot. Now we are old and no one gay would have us. But I got mine bi@#hes. You all can suck it!!!
