I Might Break up With my Girlfriend Because She's Against Gay Marriage
Guardian ^ | Mariella Frostrup

Posted on 04/23/2013 12:21:53 PM PDT by nickcarraway

The dilemma I've just started dating a girl at university. After the gay marriage bill went through, she revealed that she was against it. As a man with many gay friends, including members of my family, am I obliged to end the relationship? Her argument goes something along the lines of: "I'm not homophobic, but I don't think we should change an institution artificially and unnecessarily", then some other ridiculous propaganda. I don't feel she's a bad person, but perhaps misinformed due to her background. She is working class but, equally, is studying at Oxford.

Mariella replies Goodness me, working class, eh? And at Oxford! What is the world coming to? If we continue to encourage plebeians through the quadrant door this sort of rumpus will be unavoidable. Perhaps you should campaign for the doubling of tuition fees. Then you won't have to take responsibility for extracurricular social experiments along with your normal studies.

Raised among the underclass, she's bound to hold opinions that you and your friends will find offensive, but with exposure to the classics, and with a dazzling array of cutlery at every college meal to focus on, she should come round. It would be a miracle if she were immediately at home in such an alien environment, brimful of the liberal, benign and tolerant views that your social class naturally espouses. She probably thinks foreigners should be thrown out, too, which could cause problems if any of those Oxford-loving, democracy-eschewing Arabian princes are in your peer group.

She must be supermodel gorgeous to have you lavishing your broadminded, public-school-funded intellectual magnanimity on her. Whatever your attraction, I'm not sure that divergent beliefs in a relationship are grounds for separation. Labour-supporting Sally Bercow and her husband John, a Conservative and Speaker in parliament, are an example of

If he was really enlightened he'd dump her for a man, even if he's straight, to show support for them...

The guy sounds like a total douche, but the author Mariella serves up some grade-A snark, saving me the trouble.

He says that several members of his family are Gay? Wow, when they are 2% of the population, and his family contains several, you know he’s hit the jackpot! He needs to go out and buy some lottery tickets!

He isn’t straight. Not a chance. I have never met someone for homosexuals to destroy marriage that didn’t have major liberal issues.

This guy is the perfect Limousine Liberal. Upper class, sneers at “working class” conservative values but believes he’s being tolerant by assuming that the girl is salvagable if he can just get her to give up those values. If you disagree with a Lib on issues, they assume you are ignorant and just need to be taught better. If you resist the liberal “education,” then they get nasty with you or write you off.

I cannot imagine any man having gay “friends”, and multiple of them, and not being one himself. I call bs on this. NO MAN knowingly has “gay friends”, and considers dropping his woman due her dislike of homosexuals.

Real men take pride in their masculinity, their opposite sex.

“Gays” get high in comraderie of perversion. We will forever be confronted by in your face homo’s as long as we allow them to.

We start the fight to take us back to a moral, and sane society by getting Conservatives to power, and eliminating the Leftist strongholds in Government that feed Leftist perceptions, thus perversions.

Why is it that every oxygen thief who writes these pieces “has family members who are gay”? I cannot name one person in my immediate or extended family of about 75 (aunts, uncles, nieces/nephews, 1st cousins and their spouses/kids) who is a queer. I cannot speak for more distant kin.

Though this is appearing in the al-Guardian, the tone of the advice columnist reeks of sarcasm instead of p.c.

I suspect that his citing her class trumps her opposition to homosexual marriage. That is, British leftists really get their nose out of joint when one of the “upper classes” sneers at one of the “lower classes”, who are behaving “above their class”, in this case, attending Oxford, which leftists sneer at anyway because it is the domain of the upper classes.

While writing it, she was likely thinking that he is an “upper class twit”. And judging from his letter, he is.

yeah... in my 20s I cared what some chick’s political views were. Yeah, right.
Frankly, I didn’t care if she was a treehugging vegan witch. I was trying to... well you know.
I guess I wasn’t ‘enlightened’ enough. Or you could say, I guess I was a NORMAL horny 20something and not a sensitive girly man.
This dude should be with a guy. Then maybe they can sit around and listen to Barbara Striesand and go shopping for window treatments.

NO MAN knowingly has “gay friends"

Curious, I'd never thought of this. Mrs WBill has gay friends, and I have a fair number of gay people (wife's friends, a few co-workers) that I *tolerate* for short periods of time. They're nice enough folks, generally pleasant to speak with.

But, I'd not call any of them, "Friends". I've not one thing in common, with any of them.

I could not have done so either; I found out my youngest brother was homosexual AFTER he died at 42, in San Francisco. He kept it to himself.

my thoughts exactly. The quicker she dumps him, the better too.

She deserves much better than this twit. He deserves much less. Maybe he’ll even find someone confused about their own sexual identity and they can wallow in their misery together.
