Gaysian = Fun

Gay marriage is legal in Vermont!

Vermont joins Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Iowa–which legalized gay marriage last week–in recognizing same-sex unions. New Hampshire and Maine are apparently considering similar moves, and Washington D.C.’s City Council voted unanimously Tuesday to recognize same-sex marriages performed outside the district. Even though equal marriage rights in our state of California are in bad shape right now, this is progress, people.

Of course, not everyone thinks so.

Over the weekend, we received an email from a reader–I should probably say “ex”-reader–who expressed his displeasure over our support of gay marriage.


Now, I could go into how gay marriage rights are civil rights, and banning gay marriage is discrimination, and how civil rights and discrimination affect us all, but most especially minorities and people of color, and, therefore, gay marriage has everything to do with Asian-American “perspectives,” but y’all, I’m just really hung up on one detail.

This poor soul clearly doesn’t know any Gaysians. Like Sulu. Or our hero Margaret Cho. Or the only funny character on Entourage (played by the openly gay Rex Lee). Or the always quietly divine B.D. Wong. Or Esera Tuaolo, who’s only the third former NFL player to come out and is working to defeat homophobia in professional sports. Or any of our countless friends who, orientasian aside, want what everyone else wants in life–to love and be loved.

And a life without Gaysians?

It’s so small. So sad. So pitiable.

I was trying to give Andrew bunny ears, but I ended up throwing an Asian peace sign instead. Yo, I think that's racist.
