Howard Stern: Anti-Gay Marriage Advocates Lead the ‘Most Empty Fucking Life’

VIEWPOINTS — Howard Stern may be many things — skeevy, crass, obsessed with breasts — but at least the guy knows right from wrong. Stern: “Gay people in our society are responsible for some of the most creatives arts … they’re contributors, they’re people who want to thrive … and so we have a responsibility to make this acceptable … so some gay kid going to high school doesn’t get the shit kicked out of him.”

And then Stern & Co. start denouncing the idea that being gay is a choice, because why would anyone choose “to be downtrodden” and “get the shit kicked out of you.” Well, it’s not a choice, but for many of us, we’re perfectly happy with the way the universe made us.
