Why do gay people get a pass? I demand equal rights for straight men. Let’s let Ana & Cenk tell the story first:Let’s examine some of these arguments verbatim:

Five WivesAt the top of the clip, Ana says: “For some people it’s easy to recognize what their sexuality is early on in life, but for others they don’t realize it until after they’re married.” ….So what if a man discovers that he’s polygynist in orientation and would much rather prefer a polygamist lifestyle? It’s acceptable for him to blow up his monogamous marriage to pursue his true self then, I must say.

At 0:30 we hear from Lauren Morelli, the writer at the center of the story. Let’s take her words and apply them to a man in a monogamous situation. “I realized I didn’t want to live a monogamous lifestyle in fall 2012, one of my first days on the set. It wasn’t so much one thing, but the sum of many details: how uncomfortable I’d feel around all of those hot actresses or how I considered myself a ‘not very sexual person.’ When considered alone, these seemed like little quirks that made me me. Wanting to have threesomes or more instead of having sex with just your wife is a perfectly reasonable preference to have, right? I was finally forced to consider a question that had never, ever occurred to me before: Holy sh*t, am I non-monogamous?”

At 2:17 Ana says the following: “I think the scariest thing is, I think that she probably thought, or had suspicions about her sexuality, right? But maybe she was afraid of it, fat_wife2maybe she didn’t want to address it or confront it, and imagine how scary that is to be in a relationship that you know you’re not happy in but you feel kinda trapped.” Let’s apply that to a man that has a 400 pound wife, and doesn’t have sex with her anymore because he gets nauseated just looking at her; the man realizes that he’s only attracted to thinner women. Or again, a man that realizes, after his nuptials, that the monogamous lifestyle is not for him. If he feels trapped, he most certainly shouldn’t have to stay, clearly.

At 2:53 Cenk says that “I think that she started writing for a show about lesbians in order to work out what she was feeling inside, and couldn’t quite put it into words until she put in the words of her character.” So….let’s say a straight male writer starts writing about a guy in high school, who’s surrounded by barely legal girls…he realizes that, even though he’s 40 and married to a 40 year old woman, he can’t seem to keep his mind off of 18 & 19 year old females. He discovers that he wants to only be with girls right 18 and 57out of high school through his cathartic writing.

Then Cenk makes this statement at 3:18: “To me the most amazing part of the story, putting all our goofy kidding aside, is that, how much societal pressure could shut down a person’s natural instincts, right? I mean, she was obviously attracted to women all along, but because of all the expectations and pressure, she so assumed that she must’ve been straight that she didn’t even consider being gay as an option, even though she had already made out with women….isn’t that amazing???” So, a straight non-monogamous guy, even though he’s juggled plates before, after he gets married, because of all the societal pressure and expectation was just assuming that manning up and getting married was who he was, and he didn’t even consider being polygamous as an option, even though he had already had multiple women before….isn’t that amazing???

And, at 4:01, Ana puts the cherry on top of the sundae: “And a lot of people are upset with her, because they feel like she broke up her marriage, and she didn’t work hard enough, and once you take your vows it’s supposed to be as serious as possible which I, look, when you get married, Non-monogamousyou should take your vows seriously, I’m not trying to belittle that, right, but at the same time, what did you want her to do? Remain married to a man she wasn’t in love with, and who she had absolutely no interest in having sex with?” A straight man who’s repulsed by his wife, does he get that same understanding/freedom? If she’s 400 lbs or just if he’s done with monogamy and ready to move on….he has those some options, correct?

There’s more gems in there, but I want to restate: I demand equal rights for straight men who realize after they’re married they do not want fatties, they only like 19 year olds, or they are just simply non-monogamous. In the video they said repeatedly, “This is different! She’s attracted to a whole other gender!” It’s different, really?

So, I’ll ask again: Why do Gay people get a pass? Archie
