No you don’t want to see them prove it! ;^)
They’d better find a “gay gene”, because without it a lot of America’s young “hetero” bachelors are going to start getting “gay married” just for their room-mate/fraternity brother’s benefits. There is nothing to dissuade 2 70 year-old men to “marry” just in time for one of them to get the other’s Social Security survivor benefits when one goes to meet his maker...
