The gorgeous, sensitive and sensible Charlize Theron (NO sarcasm this time, don’t pass out), the girl I would totally go ghey for, the object of my adoration and my avatar has said before that she would never get married until gays can. Me: CHARLIZE I AM SO ON BOARD, WAIT FOR ME BABY!!! Anyway, in September 2009, she said “I do have a problem with the fact that our government has not stepped up enough to make [marriage equality] federal…I really understand marriage and I respect marriage. I just feel that we should all have equal rights.”
I have to say that in my experience, I think marriage is a huge stinking steaming pile of bullshit (jaded much?) but like Charlize, I totally support other people to make the biggest mistake of their lives no matter what their sexual orientation is. No, really, marriage CAN be a beautiful thing. I’ve seen it work and we all want to grow old with someone who loves us enough to smear Ben Gay where our bathing suit covers.
In a recent interview on CNN, which you can watch here on Towleroad, she reiterates her stance, adding that marriage is not important for her (SUHWOOOON AGAIN) but that she understands its importance to other people. She ends the interview by saying “We should all have equal rights. Love is such a divine thing, it’s a gift, and who are we to say?”
It’s a sensitive subject, but I’m with Charlize (I fucking wish). I mean, if two adults love each other enough to make that leap, and only fuck on each other till they die, and put up with each other’s morning breaf and shitty moods for the rest of their lives, I think they should be able to. Marry me Charlize!! *licks monitor*
