    That’s hilarious. The battle is still going on and they’re claiming they wanted this all along!! :-D

    Saying that I’m all for it providing it gets US LGBTs equal rights. I don’t care if they try to rewrite history afterwards. In the days of the Internet the facts don’t disappear as easily as they used to.

  2. Well Mr Rightwing Conservative, why weren’t you making that argument two days ago?

  3. “…Makes gay less slutty”?!?! EXCUSE ME?!?!?! Like the heteros have had some kind of “golden standard” of “proper” sexual behavior?! Give me a freakin’ break here!!!! What a ridiculous arse this guy is!

    1. Gutfeld has never been anti-gay, he’s a libertarian right-winger, but he is also a joker and that comment would have been made in a tongue in cheek way. Similarly the part about wanting to impose traditional values because that’s what right-wingers do. Gutfeld is no enemy of equal marriage, Pink News has not contextualised his comments.

    What a horrible man.

  5. “LGBT people need to be more sensitive to the needs of religious conservatives”

    Yeah they need preferential treatment now? They need us to be nice to them or they will cry. Boo F****** Hoo!!!!!!!!!!

    They need to come to terms with what nasty bigots they are.

  6. Our habitual visiting Skip Rat squeaks and defecates the usual crap and the world ignores it as it is flushed back to the sewer. F-ck Off Keith.

      He’s that much of a coward, he can’t even use the same alias. His current one is very apt because that’s just what he is.

    And did you know that 50% of heterosexual marriages end in divorce, primarily because of promiscuous behaviour called adultery and its been in decline for more than 30 years.

    In sub-sahara Africa and other emerging nations, HIV transmission is overwhelming contracted by heterosexuals. So much for hetero-normativity.

    1. Fu-ck off Skip Rat back to the sewer where you belong.

  8. Marriage is likely to reduce promiscuity in any group, no matter the orientation. Perhaps that was one of the reasons that David Cameron said from the outset that he supported marriage equality not despite being a conservative but because he is a conservative.

  9. Even if promiscuity is disproportionate amongst homosexuals (I’m talking homosexual men here) in comparison with heterosexual people, it’s not because they are gay: it is because they are men.

    Think about it: man ( a person usually up for sex) meets woman ( a person who usually likes a bit of romance by way of preamble). Sex is delayed.

    Man ( a person usually up for sex) mets another man who fancies him and he fancies. Well, you get the picture.

    Please don’t be holier than thou about this; gay men only do what heterosexual men would do given the chance.

    Don’t make out their monsters, even IF you’re right, they’re no different from any heterosexual men.

    1. I imagine you were there to verify this? In delicious anticipation?

    Argggh!!
    we dont need to make gays less slutty, but we do need something to make bigots like this one less stupid.

    1. Joe – he’s not a bigot, he’s a satirist, and a libertarian one at that. The language, taken out of context by Pink News, would not have been intended to offend, but to make an audience laugh as anyone familiar with Gutfeld on both Red Eye and The Five would know. Look for our enemies elsewhere (as he suggests) because Gutfeld isn’t one of them.

  11. “I want to impose that value on others, because that’s what rightwingers do.”

    Wow! We all knew it was true, but it’s nice to see them admit it. Brilliant.

  12. Remember, Gutfeld is probably more likened to a court jester than actually anyone who could be considered a power broker on that network. Everything he says comes across as sarcastic/snarky, and from the inflection, sounds like it could stand alone as an above-the-fold headline.

    This goes back to his days on “Red Eye,” as well (yes, I watch[ed] it, mainly because I’m a night-owl ^_^). He might be/usually is insensitive, but I doubt that he’s really the one we need to be focusing our lasers on. Go after the ones who are actually saying things to rile up their base, instead of people who are playing the part of the fool just for the comedic relief.

      “Fox News” successfully defended itself in a court case by claiming it was .entertainment not news.

      Go figure that out!

    2. Exactly, Cody. Gutfeld is not anti-gay, that comment wasn’t anti-gay.

  13. PeterinSydney 27 Jun 2013, 9:32pm

    Who owns Fox again? A bastion of high morality OR just a feral alley cat?

  14. >Promiscuity is a bad thing

    F-ck off American.

  15. Oh, bless his clumsy, semi-flattering, semi-offensive heart. :P You know what’s sad about this? From the sounds of the comment, I honestly think he really is trying to build a bridge. But sanctimony tends to give bridges a poor foundation, no matter how otherwise faithfully built.

  16. Troll alert.

  17. Funny, I thought it was the heterosexual married men who were promiscuous and slutty. I don’t remember having ever met and talked online on erotic chatrooms around the Internet with a man that was not an openly-heterosexual married man.

  18. You know what. I really hope more conservatives would be like this.
    LGBT marriage promotes stable, commmited relationships. If they would use this argument more rather than “Adam and Steve…blah blah blah” it would be better for all of us.

  19. The iron law of populist right wing guff –
    1 – the public hates group X for no very rational reason but we will promote and amplify their hatred and tell them their hatred is virtuous. Gratified, they will read/listen to/ watch us.
    2 – We start to pick up that hatred of group X is declining, and that among the young is being replaced by indifference or even positive regard. We stop demonising group X and start saying we have never really seen what the fuss is about. We keep an eye on the viewing/ reading/listening figures.
    3 – Clear majorities begin to believe that Group X should have the same rights as everyone else and should even be respected socially. We hail our readers’/ viewers’/listeners’ endorsement of values which we have, of course, always espoused.
    Dead predictable, folks. Convenient amnesia, cynicism and audience share.

    Why do others want us all to be the same and think it’s there right to tell us how to live.

    I want a diverse world with many ways of living where people can express themselves but in a way that adds to all of our communities.

    Is this too much to ask for?

    Why does he even get written about – his opinion is just as relevant as mine. He’s a news reader and thats it.
