Well if anyone should be having Fairy tale weddings, it should be the gays.

cdr_storvik: But what if they're drunk and horny when they masturbate?

Good point, I don't know. More research is needed. I am willing to listen to the girls (my pref.) describe their fantasies while drunk, horny and normal. I'll place my findings in a newsletter.

Of course some gay men want to get married at Disneyland. Check out the Radical Faeries!

Note that not all gay men are going to run out and do this - 1, they don't want to get married; and 2, some gay men are not into fairies or fairy like behavior.

"The Lavish Wedding Option also includes a ride to the ceremony in the Cinderella coach, costumed trumpeters heralding the couple's arrival, and attendance by Mickey and Minnie Mouse characters dressed in formal attire."

First I saw imagined adults actually wanting this and then i imagined to starry-eyed men in the Cinderella Coach and cracked up.

Please tell me that adults don't actuallty do this. I don't care if they are gay, I don't believe a man would stoop to this. A man might be whipped into this by his bride, but two men couldn't possibly.

Mugato: "Guys in assless chaps and feathered boas making out with each other in open sight, ass pirates of the Caribbean as far as the eye can see, just daring us to make some comment and when my friend made an innocent comment about getting teh hiv on the monorail, all hell broke loose."

When I took my cousin to Disneyland around 1995, she was wearing a bikini top. Park officials told her to put on a jacket as the dress code was to uphold a family atmosphere. Assless chaps huh? It sounds like it's less about "No discrimination" and more about special rights.

Actually is sounds less about special rights and more about making up shiat on the internets.

Catracks,

Correct, they wouldn't let someone just wearing chaps into the park. Not to mention that all chaps, by definition, are assless. I would be willing to bet they had pants on under them.

And god forbid gay people kiss in public. Because straight people never do this.

Good for Disney! Yeah, I know it's a business strategy and all, but still... yay on them.

I am now eagerly awaiting an email from the evil AFA demanding a boycott of Disney for their support of the homosexual agenda.

/I use their emails to send notes to whoever they want me to complain to, expressing my support of their decision.
 
2007-04-06 11:09:40 AM  
Doesn't Disney consider the ramifications? Now that they allow Fairy Tale weddings for gays those unions will have to be recognized by all other amusement park venues. Did they consult with Six Flags? Will it affect smaller road-side attractions?

Did they miss the obvious "Fairy Tail" pun?

reidsb: "Correct, they wouldn't let someone just wearing chaps into the park. Not to mention that all chaps, by definition, are assless. I would be willing to bet they had pants on under them."

He was probably talking about those leather pants with the ass cut out ... or making it up. I've seen pics of gay pride parades with much worse.

"And god forbid gay people kiss in public. Because straight people never do this."

I give my husband a quick kiss, but I think over the top PDAs are tacky with gay or straight people.

TFA: Disney's Fairy Tale Wedding packages start at $8000 US ($9791)...

Disney is not stupid, people. That's nearly $10k for something that probably costs them next to nothing.

I've seen people get married there and it's really freaky with those bride-and-groom mouse ears they wear afterwards. You have to be a real Disney nut to get hitched there.
 
2007-04-06 11:34:01 AM  
I can't really imagine why anyone would WANT to get married or have their commitment ceremony there - but it's nice that Disney is being non-exclusionary with their packages.

That really didn't sound right.
 
2007-04-06 11:40:15 AM  
Disney is finally treating couples in a non-discriminatory manner?

Oh, the horror!

I think it's great that they want to allow gay marriages, but getting married at Disneyland is totally gay.

When I worked at Disney World over the summer of Katrina for an "internship" one of the days I had to work was, well, "Gay Day." About half the employees didn't show up for work that day. I almost wish I hadn't; it really was quite... scary. But then it did occur to me that this happens to them all the time, so I shrugged it off until one of them called me cute.

hetheeme: I'm not a supporter of Gay marriage

As a voter and a citizen, it does in a small way, but my voice is no more or less important than yours. Supposedly we live in a democratic society, one where the people are sovereign and orders don't come from on high. If it doesn't require my approval (at least at the level of my vote or anyone else's vote) then it is coming from on high and there is something wrong with our country.

I'm just one vote, but I want to be able to participate in the process. If the choice of if the state allows gay marriage or not, and it's the state I live in (disregarding for the moment the "full faith and credit clause" that really does make the issue one on the national level)then I want to be able to put my 2 cents in. Since when did it become the case that if you have an opinion that is not politically correct then you should be silenced? If it's the case that people that don't believe in gay marriage should be silenced for the common good, then freedom of speech and freedom of expression are dead.

I don't make the final decision, and my approval doesn't matter any more than anyone else's, but it does count for something.

The full faith and credit clause was never relevant to the issue of gay marriage, and it is particularly irrelevant in light of the law that specifically says one State doesn't have to honor a gay marriage recognized in another state. Get a new talking point.

I love how you completely ignored the possibility that the person really wasnt a heterosexual in the first place. They could have just been suppressing it you know

In 1972, a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles San Francisco underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you're in the closet, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire...the Gay-Team.

Of course Disney is wholly motivated by money on this one, but what makes me crazy is the idea that there's a "gay agenda" out there that wants "marriage". I've been in the gay community for 30+ years and although I've heard people say they want civil unions to attain the same rights as married couples (which we should have), I've never heard anyone say the word "marriage." The entire "war on marriage" b.s. was just a political ploy to win back Bush's Christian base when Iraq started farking up. "Look, those gays want to destroy the institution of marriage!" This never happened.

tweekster: "I love how you completely ignored the possibility that the person really wasnt a heterosexual in the first place. They could have just been suppressing it you know"

So if it can be suppressed, then it is possible to change? And I notice you ignored that I said I've seen it go both ways ... were the others not homosexuals, but just suppressing their heterosexuality?

Momzilla59: "I can't be the only person here humming "Someday my Prince will come"."

One would hope, after the marriage, that he'll come more often than that.

cdr_storvik:

Suppressing is not the same as changing, it just means you are denying what is true.

I suppose that situation you proposed could happen but would be MUCH less frequent just because there are less homosexuals for that to occur with

tweekster: "I suppose that situation you proposed could happen but would be MUCH less frequent just because there are less homosexuals for that to occur with"

I merely point out the double standard for assuming that sexuality is changeable only in one direction. The reasons why or why not, or the probabilities, are not relevant.

MollyHell: "Why in the world does this get a "Weird" tag?"

Because there's no "farking Goofy" tag.

However, a gay relationship is not the same as a straight one, not saying it is worse or better, but it is different

UltimaCS - As the article states, Disney was just pointed out over their own hypocrisy

It's not that hypocritical to require a valid license to perform a wedding. I'm not sure how "generic non-binding wedding ceremony" would differ from "vows renewal."

Basic human rights aside, legalizing gay marriage (with whatever name you want) would make things way, way simpler as far as many legal arrangements (i.e. health insurance) are concerned. No imaginary reason the fundies can dream up trumps that.

cdr_storvik: I love the fact that the same people who insist that homosexuality is immutable love to brag about how easy it is to change heterosexuals.

there is a huge difference between a long term love and a one night fark.

you have the right to your opinion and i have the right to mine, i also have the right to gather up as many go go boys in tight speedos as i can find and form a picket line outside your office or church with large signs saying that you are a bigot. freedom of speech is a great thing.
