Skip to comments.'Poster couple' for gay rights in California is divorcing
Posted on 02/08/2012 7:37:21 AM PST by AT7Saluki
When gay couples first sought the right to legally wed in California, they argued that they were entitled to all of the benefits of marital bliss.
It was only a matter of time before that benefit extended to the right to split up.
Even as the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals found California's ban on gay marriage unconstitutional Tuesday, one of the state's first gay couples to tie the knot was calling it quits.
Robin Tyler filed for divorce from Diane Olson on Jan. 25. The pair were among 14 same-sex couples who originally challenged the ban in 2008.

What? During the heat of the propaganda battle, we were told that homosexuals mate for life and are the best “parents” you can find for kids!
And the Goodridge couple in the original homosexual marriage case in America, which led to Massachusetts homosexual marriage, has also divorced.
In Massachusetts, the “granddaddy” of all the homosexual marriage states, only about 20% of homosexuals in relationships are married.
Overall, in recent years, only about 4% of marriages in Massachusetts have been same-sex couples. Most of the same-sex couples have been woman/woman.
So, it seems that homosexuals are fighting hard for this constitutional “right” to get married to someone of the same sex, and then once they win this right, they choose not to exercise this right.
Lesbian “news” woman Rachel Maddow, who lives in both Massachusetts and New York, both states which allow same sex marriage, has not married her live-in woman partner. Marriage is not where she wants to be, or so she says. She’s a cheerleader for homosexual marriage on her show, yet, she doesn’t want to exercise this freedom to marry, her right to marry.
Will marriage fundamentally change if same sex couples just don’t want to get married once given the right to do so? It’s something to think about.
Homosexuality is just partner-assisted masturbation with all the great things that masturbation produces.
The one with the penis...wait, thst still doesn’t answer the question.
You hate to get personal, but, why is it that so many “lesbians” go out of their way to have a mannish appearance?
They want us to think that they are simply women who love another woman, rather than a man. They are supposedly proud to be women, yet they want to look like men.
“Let me be Frank ....”
Heaven’s Gates will not open to abomination. Homosexuals must give up their sinful ways and repent. Either that or spend eternity burning in hell along with those who support and defend any sort of gay unions, gay marriages, or gay rights. I pray for forgiveness of my sins as a heterosexual as well as those who sin as homosexuals.
Could that be why men are not interested? :-)
I was at a bar last St. Patty's Day. The place got crashed by a group of 20-30 lesbians. For the most part, the only way I could tell they were women, was by their height. They were all around 5'2"-5'4".
Otherwise, I'd need to look hard, and I didn't really want to do that.
Together 18 years. Knew each other 40 years. Fought to marry for 7 years. Got their wish in 2008 and could not stay married for 3 years? The more things that change, the more they stay the same. This is revolting. We will see more of these type of divorces as time goes on. After awhile, gays will have the same divorce percentage as straights. It is bound to happen. These dregs just wanted attention and when they got it couldn’t handle it. Kinda like a child.
Perhaps it isn’t about same sex rights as is about the general destruction of traditional Judean-Christian values. To bring down a society, the values of society must be destroyed. The Soviet Union was brought down but Communism is stronger than ever and it is step by step bringing down every traditional institution in this nation. Christianity may be growing but the Christian traditions and organizations are being destroyed. May God shine his light upon this nation and save us from ourselves. Every FReeper should hit their knees immediately and pray for the soul of our Republic.
Dear Lord and Savoir hear our prayers for we are deep in trouble.
Man, Edgar Winter has really let himself go...
It ain’t like in the movies.
Custody of the “penis” will be decided by the divorce court. I suspect visitation rights will be generous and a set aside for the costs of batteries to be shared...
Hopefully the gays will wake up and start suing each other for 'common-law' marriage and 1/2 of all assets accumulated during the 'marriage'. Then they'll have all the same 'rights' as the breeders.
Ms. Maddow wouldn't simply be protecting assets, would she? LOL!
Looks like they beat the average by 6 months.
Thank you! I nneded a good laugh!!!
Similarly, with the hard-fought legislative battle to repeal of DADT, has there been a rush of homosexuals to join the military?
well....I won’t hold this against them.
Part of the problem with this whole mess is that straights screwed up the institution of marriage first.
Once that happened the gays started their mantra...”marriage is sacred? really? so what’s with the divorce rate?”
And then it was downhill from there...
You posted, in part: You hate to get personal, but, why is it that so many lesbians go out of their way to have a mannish appearance?
That facet (among others) of homosexuality has always confused me. I am male and I can halfway understand women wanting to be with women. They are the more attractive sex— all the great artists agree. But lesbians do seem to appear more masculine (if the stereotype and headline photos are to be believed). It would seem that if you want someone masculine, men are the way to go, and they have the parts that have to be purchased when women do the job...
On the other side, male homosexuals say they desire men, but the men so often seem to act effeminate. It’s none of my business of course, but it just doesn’t seem logical.
I recall there were protests in liberal places such as Berkeley about the military having recruiting offices in their communities. They didn’t want the military recruiters because of don’t ask/don’t tell.
So now that DADT is gone, can the military open a recruiting office in The Castro? Will that be a busy office if they did so?
Interesting parallel about marriage and DADT. We are not seeing a flood of openly homosexual recruits into the military. They fought for that right to serve, then decide they don’t want to serve anyway. Go figure.
interesting post. Of course, as I watch my daughters age group begin their progression through their 20’s, are they getting married?
No. Some are. Most have begun the heartbreaking cycle of moving in, procreating, breaking up....repeat.
“Overall, in recent years, only about 4% of marriages in Massachusetts have been same-sex couples. Most of the same-sex couples have been woman/woman.”
One thing I wonder about is basic masculinity/femininity regardless of your “sexuality”
In other words...women are, by nature, drawn toward commitment and nesting. So it makes sense that lesbians would be more favorably disposed towards marriage than gay men.
When I observe gay couples of both sexes the pattern usually is....feminine/masculine.
Even as they reject natural sexuality, there appears to be an attempt to recreate that basic male/female dimension.
So who pays alimony to whom?
...or the ad for Key West
You hate to get personal, but, why is it that so many lesbians go out of their way to have a mannish appearance?
1) Rejection by politicized lesbians of “social construct” femininity - i.e. make-up, leg-shaving, pretty clothing, enhancing lingerie.
2) Masculinzing hormonal imbalances - i.e. polycystic ovarian syndrome.
3) Virulent, cruel, loathing rejection by men of women with a mannish appearance - i.e. thick waist, broad face, big chin. It’s common on FR. If most men seem hateful and chances of a relationship with a man are low, a woman might turn to another woman who has been through the same.
And then, synergy. Peer pressure.
“..I’d need to look hard,...”
Hard to tell which one was the man.
MEN don’t do gay only freaks do.
>”Let me be Frank”<
Let me get the Frankfurter. (fixed it)
You were Frank last week!
Phew...for a minute there I thought I was reading a post from Mr. Spock! News flash, when emotions are involved, logic flies out the window. A wise man knows this and always has the last words when arguing with a woman, "yes dear...".
Everyone knows that legalized gay marriage is just a cash grab for attorneys. You could practically HEAR the champagne corks pop from attorneys offices far and wide across this once great state of NY.
FINE! Let them have all the benefits I say--divorce, custody fights, child support hearings, spousal support.
Proves that they don’t really want equal rights,
they just want to upset the apple cart and take away something that someone else has. (10th commandment)
Reminds me of the joke about the genie and the Arab.
The Arab complained to the genie that his cousin Abdul had a beatiful flock of goats and he himself had none.
The genie said “do you want me to give you twice as large a flock of goats?”
The Arab said “No, you idiot! I want you to kill all of Abdul’s goats.”
You’ll fry your brain trying to figure it out.
Let me guess: they were loud and obnoxious,right? (And not just because it was a bar)?
A blonde-haired John Goodman?
It’s because “marriage” to homosexual activists is merely a political statement, not what most normal people think of as marriage - the intended lifelong bond which produces a family. They do this to flaunt their power, without any intent at monogamy, and then try to “divorce” in states that don’t recognize their “marriage” in order to sow political confusion and imposition. It’s happened at least twice here in Texas, and once in Oklahoma.
Even Rosie O’Donnell said as much. It’s purely a political statement; the most disparaging thing you can say about marriage.
Oh jeez, one of them looks like Hal Linden (TV’s Barney Miller) in a wig and the blond has a face like a craggy mountain.
Mission impossible: Find a real life non-porn star lesbian ‘married’ couple where both are good looking.
I think I have a better chance at find gold coins buried in my front yard.
“Mission impossible: Find a real life non-porn star lesbian married couple where both are good looking.”
You’re right, I can’t. Break out the metal detector...
Barney Miller...u bad!
I love the “Jersey Shore” gold chain on the brunette...white trash.
Totally. This was a low-key neighborhood bar. So, any loud, rude bunch would stand out.
The girl who tended bar was mad because they kept stiffing her on the tips. I thought that was interesting; she's pretty cute and flirty. Figured that they'd tip her more because of that.
I know that I do, just don't tell Mrs WBill. ;-)
Ya got that right.
You’re welcome SunkenCiv.
I figured it out: The blonde looks like Gregg Allman, sans beard!
I don’t want to look at the picture again, I’m afraid I might turn to stone.
That’s a distinct possibility.
