Singer Melissa Etheridge ends ten year relationship with actress Tammy Lynn Michaels
(London) Daily Mail ^ | July 3, 2010

Posted on 07/03/2010 8:47:05 PM PDT by Zakeet

American singer-songwriter Melissa Etheridge has separated from her partner of ten years, actress Tammy Lynn Michaels.

The 49-year old rock musician filed a document called a Petition for Dissolution of Domestic Partnership with the Los Angeles County Superior Court which will officially end the partnership.

Etheridge and Michaels, 35, both iconic gay rights activists in the US, had a commitment ceremony back in 2003 and registered as legal domestic partners in the state of California.

Etheridge is asking for joint custody of the couple's twins who were born in 2006, after Tammy was artificially inseminated by an anonymous donor.

I could care less about the article, but I was literally thinking about how much I hate the overuse of the word "iconic" as I clicked on here, and there it is!

Romantic partners separating--wow, that never happens...

The Daily Mail is slow. Etheridge announced this weeks ago. And there were rumors of this going back months earlier.

>>> I thought the homosexual dogma was that gays never break up like heteros do?

Really? Where did you see that ? I thought the dogma was they wanted the right to succeed or fail that heterosexuals do. And since most heterosexual marriages fail, I doubt the gays will have a much better average. Melissa certainly doesn’t, but then again ten years is longer then many last.

Etheridge singing “Born to Run” for the 9/11 New York Heroes Concert. Superb.

I believe that one of the (supposed) legitimizing factors presented by homosexuals is that their marriages would run the same numbers (statistically) as heterosexual marriages. I guess they were right, at least about the divorce thing.

I'm surprised you haven't. That was a common claim a while ago...that gay relationships were stronger and lasted longer than hetero. It was one main argument for gay marriage.

From Wiki:

Famous for being one half of one of the first publicly lesbian celebrity couples, Cypher advocated for gay rights. She has also been involved in promotions for PETA. From her partnership with Melissa Etheridge, she gave birth to two children, a daughter, Bailey Jean, born in February 1997, and a son, Beckett, born November 1998. Although originally reticent, the couple eventually revealed that the father of both children was friend and rock star David Crosby.[1] In September 2000, she and Etheridge separated. It soon came to light that Cypher had begun to question her sexuality,[1].
Cypher married Matthew Hale in 2004. She has an older sister, Melanie. She is the youngest of the two daughters of Dick and Betty Cypher.

ok, maybe it didn’t come between them but
then again if they both have physical evidence..

Great points. I see no reason to demonize gays as long as they don't want to force their positions on the rest of us. (Of course, a lot of 'em do.)

Gays are always going on about how we have to learn abuot them, but maybe they're slowly starting to learn that this "marriage" thing is fun for driving some straights crazy, but maybe it's not for everybody.

There was nothing demonizing in my statement. There is/was a vocal and active segment of the homosexual community that is actually trying to elevate that type of relationship above (as in superior to) a heterosexual one. I can't imagine anyone who gets out in the world not being aware of that. My comment was tongue-in-cheek and referring to those in that segment.

No, I was clearly talking in general, not about any post in particular, which is clear in context if one's not looking for offense. As for the rest of your statement, if you actually read what I posted I said some gays indeed are trying to force their position on the rest of us, so I don't see the point of your post.
