In a decade there will be more “Gay” Marriages than Real ones—I predict (%-wise)

(CNN) — Many New Yorkers and thousands of visitors this weekend may make last month’s Gay Pride celebrations seem tepid. Beginning Sunday, New York‘s same-sex couples will become eligible for marriage licenses. Tens of thousands of those couples are expected to marry over the next few years, and their vows will resonate across America.

New York is the sixth state (plus Washington) to offer marriage equality for same-sex couples. To me, after two decades of consulting with business leaders, this moment truly feels personal. It not only arrives packed with emotion, it is a real game-changer for the American work force.

New York’s mayor, Michael Bloomberg, and city leaders must be cheering the economic shot in the arm as hotels, restaurants, caterers, florists and legions of vendors welcome the wedding and honeymoon brigades. Some estimate nearly $400 million in revenues for the state over the next three years.

Understand that I mean that percentage-wise there will be more gay marriages than real ones.  We know gays have more money than straight people and probably more sex too.  But the gay marriage rollout will start to roll across the country and when it’s done there will be more gay/homosexual marriages than marriage between heterosexuals.  Should we just let them have the country? They seem to know better than everybody else.  Why can’t it just be civil marriage and rights for those who live together, like common law straight people?  Too late now can’t but the genitals back in the bottle.

  1. I am a natural born heterosexual American citizen and before I make this comment, let me make it perfectly clear that I would die to defend your, mine, everybody’s freedom of speech – ok, maybe not die in the literal, physical way but definitively in terms of my principles – as my best friend’s blog comments on this and many other issues, makes yours seem lukewarm.

    As to your rhetorical question, “Should we just let them have the country”….This is not your country! This is not my country!

    This is our country, the land of the free, the home of the brave, and the “our” includes the heterosexual, as well as the homosexual and by definition of the dynamics of “losing our country”, we cannot “lose” our country to ourselves because it’s OURS – always was, always will be.

    I do respect your own personal rights to choose “civil marriage” and pick “shacking up” with some man instead, and I most certainly respect your own rights to keep your genitals in the bottle. But on the same hand I respect a homosexual’s right to pick the opposite, in the “pursuit of happiness”, one of but many concepts our nation was founded.

    It’s a sad time because American may not just be teaching how to kill, but worse, it may be teaching how to hate – our freedoms of speech need to be used to fester peace and love, not hate and fear.

    • personally, I am celibate and don’t shack up with anybody, never have. You confuse pronouns. I, we, ours is all first person. So it does not matter if I say my country it means the same as our country, you are splitting semantic hairs there. If I said their country then that is a different person and a different meaning.

      Our freedom of speech is just that a freedom.

  2. The truth just set you free – pissed you off first – and being free, you can go on and use that freedom to spread hate and free if you choose do, but at least you’ll be aware…very aware, and no one will accuse you of hypocrisy. I rest my case.
