What straight man cares if gays get married or not? True Blood actor Mehcad Brooks told Honey magazine in a recent interview that he is putting off his own nuptials until all gays can be married as well.

I want a wife, I want kids. The whole thing. But I’m also not even concerned with marrying somebody until it’s legal for everybody to get married. And what I mean by that is the whole Prop 8 thing. I find it really offensive. I just find it really problematic when you start throwing people’s rights away. Until we get our gay brothers and sisters back into a realm of consciousness that everyone else is in, it’s just not right. A woman who’s getting married — it’s probably going to be a gay man who made her dress, and a gay man who’s doing her hair and makeup, but he can’t get married. How messed up is that?"

He sounds very suspect to me. Especially in that article on Honeymag.com. The writer is obviously from Atlanta because she sounds so desperate. He deflects all of her questions about sex and women (except for famous ones of course). Everything about Mehcad screams GAY!

My personal opinion on gay marriage is if you're gay and you want to get married, do it. But we shouldn't force our lifestyle on heterosexuals. My 80-year-old mom does not want to see men marrying men or women marrying women in her church. It's a matter of respecting the rights and religion of others.

Furthermore, priests should not be forced to perform gay marriages if it is against their religion. Civil unions makes more sense in this case. That's my personal opinion and I'm entitled to it.


    Ok, Brad Pitt said the same thing, so do you think he's gay too???

    mechad aint gay! just cuz he wants equal rights makes him gay? psssh

  • masonmom

    why is it gay for him to express his opinion on prop 8? maybe he has close relatives who are gay and reppin for them! nobody is safe from your gay-dar! speakin of gay, i seen tyler perry's movie and givin brian white the side eye...

  • Daisy

    Brad Pitt
    Charlize Theron (LUVS her)

    Can be added to the list of folks who are "gay" cause they have said the same thing along with others in hollyweird lol

    I feel gays should be allowed to get married thats between them and their God. I wouldnt want anybody telling me what I could and couldnt do.

  • http://twitter.com/LaydeeJustice LadyJustice

    speaking of tyler perry, i read somewhere that someone is writing a tell all book on him. im sure he will have it SHUT DOWN though. he supposedly had a relationship with tyra banks?? hmmm. sandra u should do some digging.

    personally im not for gay marriage per se...... however, im no hater, if they had my state vote for it, id be for it, who am i to try to STOP it from happening its not that serious to me

  • iscream

    That's just another excuse not to get married.

    As far as prop 8... some pastors are gay.. (In or out) so what's the big deal. You can take gay people offerings (cause they do go to church as well) but you can't marry them? Nor do I understand why a church member would have to see who gets married in the church. The church is just the place like a hall don't you have to be invited to attend anyway? :shrug:

    I'm for gay rights. I'm for anyone who loves each other to get married. The rate of divorce is so high among hetro people I don't see why its a big deal. Just another reason for people to find a way to try and control someone else life because they have no control over their own.

    Attrymom I'm waiting on your reply. :lol:

  • pointhimout

    LOL. Sandra, stop it. imagine that; a tell all book on tyler perry. should I yawn now, or at least wait for its release?

    I haven't seen him in action. sorry i dont watch true blood, so me haven't a clue about our suspect. has anyone else seen the Academy Award winning film, Milk, starring Academy Award nominee, Sean Penn?

  • masonmom

    im not interested in nothin wit sean penn on screen! who's doin a "tell all" book on tyler? is it that norwood dude? these tell all's are so tacky, hoooowever, im all ears!

    i JUST got into true blood this season and i need to watch the first to catch up. pretty good show!

  • KaraZ

    Mehcad might not be gay but he said one stupid azz thing in this interview. Most wedding dress designers are NOT gay males & how stereotypical for him to think the same about hair stylists and makeup artists, both fields are also overwhelmingly dominated by women!

  • aqtpie

    The writer is obviously from Atlanta because she sounds so desperate.
    You are right about it being your opinion though! Why would priests that are against gay marriages perform the ceremony? There are people who are for it that can perform the ceremony!

  • mizzdallas

    Sandra, you need more people he is NOT gay

  • http://myspace.com/latituded400 Shannon

    Sandra, how does your 80 year old mom feel about you being a Lesbian?

  • ELove

    Something TELLS ME that you got the goods on this dude ...

    And to the married ladies (Who say he ain't GAY) -- If your husband had told you THE SAME THING before y'all got married WHAT WOULD YOU THINK or DO to your man ???

  • Daisy

    Ice I think he would get married when the right lady came along regardless of what was going on with Prop 8 if I had to guess. He knows a sista will be singing single ladies to him sooner than later lol

  • Shauny

    o.k I had to read the article. He isn't even in a relationship so what wedding is he putting off? He was just saying he isn't going to get married until EVERYONE could get married so it's not like he was engaged then told his fiance were putting it off until everyone can marry...SMDH another cut and past topic of an interview.

    Everyone is NOT gay.

  • Dhoward1913

    This is soooo stupid. I have agree with Sandra, his butt is gay.

  • Daisy

    @Shauny thank you and if he is gay and stupid so is Brad, Charlize and other ppl who have made the same or simialar comments.

  • PAHairston

    Hello All, I'm 55 yrs old and can count on ONE HAND the number of happily married couples I know and I'm sure most of you can do the same. Many straight folks don't hold marriage sacred so why should we not let gay folks get married? Just doesn't make sense. AND I'M A CHRISTIAN!

  • ELove

    Somebody said -- A Comedian I think:
    GAYS should be allowed to be AS MISERABLE AS Straight People in regards to being MARRIED in the U.S.

    And I AGREE 100% :lol:

  • miamore73

    I don't think he's gay because of his statement I think he just doesn't want to get married.

    I hate that they killed poor eggs!!! I think they just had to figure out a way to get rid of him cause that whole thing with him going crazy was just stupid.

  • Krysi J

    shyt I didn't think he was cute anyway....more power to him...its definitely not a loss for the female gender

  • http://charactercorner.blogspot.com attorneymom

    Who gives a rat azz?? Next.

  • terika83


  • terika83

    I have to agree with Sandra...if you want to express your opinion...fine...but to hold off your OWN marriage cause of that???....gay. Sounds VERY suspect.

  • terika83


  • Anti-believer

    Elove that was Chris Rock.

    Vaaladay... Brad Pit goes both ways.

    Mechad... I think he is bi-sexual too.

  • vipatlstyle

    The whole word is gay! Btw, Sandra when I come down to Atlanta I'm going to turn you out! ;)

  • Shauny

    what a world we live in these days...SMDH

    @PA - I know newlyweds (good luck), I'm married and VERY happy myself) and friends of both mine and my hubby that are and have been married and are doing fine. Now don't get me wrong, there are some that are having problems but are fighting to work them out. I agree however, with who are we to tell 2 men or 2 women they don't have the same option as a man and woman.

  • miamore73

    I'm married and actually happy (most of the time) :heart:

  • JustSayin

    What straight man cares if gays get married or not?"

    So if someone supports or cares about an issue that doesn’t directly affect them..They are lying and are actually a part of the group that is affected?Hummm.. So does that mean white people who were against slavery and Jim Crow are actually black?.

    "We shouldn’t force our lifestyle on heterosexuals."

    I don’t think homosexuals are forcing..imposing..or even asking for acceptance of their lifestyle. It’s an issue of rights. Everyone is created equal and is supposedly guaranteed the same rights…

    You got me to thinking. If yt felt that way and not stood behind and supported black folks durning slavery & segregation, we wouldn't be here reading this topic right now.
