  1. Really? Big deal. Her Dad signed DOMA in to law and her Mum won’t say one way or the other because it would hurt her career.

    Yes, straight people can be as offended by bigotry and discrimination as GLBTQ people. Concepts like fairness and justice are not unique to particular subsets of people. But I just think I can take a Clinton seriously on the matter.

    So thanks for saying it (even if it stating the obvious) but I’m not sure anyone should hold their breath for marriage equality unless they are sure that they can hold it until elections are done in 2012.

  2. If someone with a face like Chelsea’s can get hitched then there’s hope for the rest of us, only kidding! Valksy give her a break, why judge her by her parents actions? Not very progressive of you, she could just as easily have said nowt, there are plenty of people in the public eye doing just that.

    Good for her.

  4. CMYB, Valksy grow up!

    1. Well that told us, labia breath.

        Erm… Ewwww!!

  5. I think Chelsea has true intentions but strongly distrust her parents bill signed doma and dadt then bragged about it and hillary recently said she supported civil union not marraige to garner political points if they had true intentions they would pull every favor and contact they can and I foolishly voted for hillary last primary altough obama has done more than any other president his motives are not there only doing what gets him political favor he has not done enough.
    That said I am still liberal but will vot for a republican next primary Fred Karger whom I believe will fight for the glbt community with full intent

      Curtis, if you are seriously considering voting republican then you are surely no liberal! What! With this crop of right-wing fundamentalist (except for the Mormon) wing-bats? Get real. Maybe you’re just a closet Log Cabin Republican.

  6. Chelsea is her own individual. Don’t pin the mistakes of her parents onto her. She’s young, she has gay friends, she supports gay marriage. If you have problems will Bill or Hillary, take it up with Bill or Hillary. Chelsea is an ally, and I appreciate it.

    1. Absolutely agreed. Do Valksy an Curtis expect Chelsea Clinton to somehow go back in time and make her parents atone for their choices? Sheesh, they’d be all over her, tearing her to bits if she voiced anti gay-marriage views and saying “like father like daughter” if she’d said the opposite of what she actually has said but still she’s getting grief.

      1. She is only reported here because she is a Clinton, because of who her parents are. Of course they are relevant because if THEY are not relevant then neither is she.

        Do straight people really need to be told that bigotry is bad? Do they need a “celebrity” to do it? Really?

        And her mother is STILL Secretary of State, still in power and could still say something even more positive. Instead, as quoted by Pink News, she was deliberately evasive.

        1. Do straight people really need to be told that bigotry is bad?

          Apparently they do.

  7. Thank you, Chelsea! Every straight ally counts. Why is it we have few straight UK celebrities declaring support in our own country? Where are they when we need them? We can’t win this alone, that’s for sure.

  8. She born retarded. She isa mistake of Nature

    1. And you of all people would know all about that, wouldn’t you?

      I see your English has gone back to its “bad” state. What’s that all about, I wonder?

      1. Ha! Well said Will. Rich’s typos are a reflection of the fact he has one hand on his knob w@nking furiously to the picture of Ricky Martin on the discussions panel while his other hand and the other side of his brain are bashing out anti-gay bile to compensate for his guilt.

  9. I don’t care what celebrities say.

    I’m interested in what elected representatives say. What Hilary or Bill say on this is important. Not the daughter.

    File under ‘showbizz’ please, not ‘politics’.

    1. Adrian, are you care what your iranian folks say?
      Salam!

      1. Why not go there Rich? But then you’d miss your smutty little thrills on a gay site, wouldn’t you, you dirty little closet case queer, you!

        1. Rich came to the UK to have access to a gay lifestyle whilst also being given freedom of speech to shout and rail against the same gay lifestyle he so wants to become part of.

          1. David Myers 7 May 2011, 12:11pm

            Rich is a proven troll – just likes to stir up skit. Please do not feed.

            So you could say wanting his cake AND eating it too6.
            Or
            Wanting his Rent Boy and having it too.

        2. Jock S. Trap 15 May 2011, 4:49pm

          So true Will but sure he’ll find somewhere.
          The love of cock just don’t stop!

      2. Jock S. Trap 15 May 2011, 4:48pm

        Rich, why not move to Iran?
        I’m sure they’ll welcome you with open arms.
        And I’m sure we’d be thrilled to finally get rid.

    2. Jock S. Trap 15 May 2011, 4:47pm

      Indeed Adrian, they are the ones to make the real difference however the support is always good because most times it’s the supporters that can influence those in charge.
