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

I bleieve he would be doing her a great favor to dump her as I also believe he is probably a bi-sexual.
She should dump him, and PRONTO!
What an arrogant @$$!!!
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!
Good for the Girl! She is the one who needs to be dumping this Lib guy! Run Girl! Run!
Upper Class Twit of the Year.
Dear God! please let him dump her so that she can find a real man!!
By all means, dump the girlfriend, and spare her from having to live with your idiocy.
He isn’t straight. Not a chance. I have never met someone for homosexuals to destroy marriage that didn’t have major liberal issues.
That second paragraph is a real gem.
Because it’s the guardian, I had to do a double take to realize it was sarcastic.
If you’ve got 10 total liberal family members, count on at least 1 being gay and 2 more “confused”.
Yeah, she would be much better off with someone who has testosterone.
Yeah, he does sound like an AIDS risk.
God judges societies that normalize perversion. History shows this to be the truth.
I wonder if she can get kicked out of Oxford for this yet?
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.
Is he from the Smith-Smythe-Smith family? Or is he related to the Incubator-Joneses?
A- taking the wrong side of a slam-dunk issue
B- asking somebody else what he should think or do
Sweetheart, you need to dump this limp-wristed, spineless, dishrag of a man before the day is out.
(Not being gross, stupid or otherwise crass[heh,heh]) Grasshopper says” Plunk him in the butt with 24” dildo and see if he changes his tune(AIEEEEEE).
