Oh, Jesus. Now gay couples are attention whoring it up with the proposals? I was hoping that they'd be better than that.

I suppose Sulu was busy.

Eh.  "None shall pass" guy?  I mean, Patrick Stewart killed it with "Engage, Numbah One."  Much more fitting.

I think having Dumbledore help with this proposal was sweet

Why? After all, gay or straight or inbetween we are all just people.

Beat me to it, gay couples have proportionally equal potential in "attention whoring" as anyone else.

What wrong with that?  They're likely to be just as sappy and schlocky as anyone else.

There was a time when someone could make a remark like "gay couples are attention whoring" without attracting the condemnations of the entire room......I read Lando's remarks with a hint of sarcasm while you and the rest had to stand up and show the world that you are on the side of truth and righteousness.....so much like armchair activists.

And there was a time when you could use the words "colored" and "n*gger" casually as well.  Guess what?  Times change.  It's not ok to leave it be as normal behavior anymore.

It's not about the "side of truth and righteousness", it's about not being a fossilized bigot.

Do you ever think that you might be part of the problem?

Maybe we should bad certain words....make it illegal to even speak them in public.

Words hurt but silence kills.

I don't advocate banning those words at all.  But shaming you for using them, making an example of why it's inappropriate to do so?  Absolutely.

It's the wonderful other edge to the first amendment.  You can say what you want, and I can call you an ass for doing it and revel in your public shaming.  Consequences are a biatch.

It is getting rather boring and repetitive these days isn't it.

It will just take one turning into a snuff film to end the craze... unfortunately.

Yes, but the guy apparently likes Patrick Stewart.  So why wouldn't he use the Trek theme WITH Patrick Stewart's voice?

Just sayin'

...Kirk's intro was the one that said "where no MAN has gone before", as opposed to Picard's "no ONE"?

They can't suck the joy out of anyone else's life - only their own.
And, as with their little, short dicks - there ain't much there to suck.

For some reason I interpreted this as proposals for prom dates instead of like, you know, marriage proposals, and I had a visual of some random HS prom being crashed by a 30-something year old dude and an aloof, slightly confused Ryan Reynolds as his celebrity prom date.

Fark it, that should be a thing.

Aren't proposals pretty much inherently attention whoring at the most basic level anyhow?

Actually, I was hoping that they were lying and actually took marriage more seriously than hetero couples. Proposing shouldn't be about trying to get as many hits on YouTube as possible. But okay, fine, gay couples, go ahead and fark it all up just like hetero couples do. See if I give a shiat. You're all a bunch of idiots anyway. I meant married couples, not just gay married couples.

They don't have to be. Take your loved one to a beautiful, meaningful spot and pop the question. Nobody else has to be around.

One of my co-workers got proposed to at my workplace, right in the middle of the office. I felt so incredibly bad for her until I found out that's how she wanted to be proposed to. No, the guy wasn't a part of our office or anything. He never really visited the office until that day. She just really loved the idea of having everybody in the office stop what they were doing and watch the proposal and then have the women come to her side to look at the ring. Yes, they were divorced a couple of years later.

I wasn't aware we'd held a vote on who was in charge of telling people how they should propose to each other.
 
2014-08-14 10:36:54 AM  
That was pretty gay!

Was cool of Sir Ian to take the time to take part in it. I have always liked him.

Those two guys though are the type of gay guys that turn me off, because they have too much female mannerisms in their behavior. If I am going to be with a guy I want him to act like a guy just like I want my women to do.
