What Sucks News…1st Same Sex Marriage Offers Stark Reminder: Not All Lesbians Hot


Perhaps lost in all the hoopla of the legalization of same sex marriage in California is that not all lesbians are hot. Never was this so true as when longtime lesbian activists Phyllis Lyon, 84 and her partner Del Martin, 87 were the first to be married at San Francisco’s City Hall Monday.

The ceremony, which was a beautiful public acknowledgement of a loving relationship that has spanned 50 years, was noticeably without gentle, stress relieving backrubs and glasses of wine. Neither of the participants whispered “We really shouldn’t be doing this...” and neither came upon a country lake, wanted to swim, realized they had no bathing suit and then playfully skinny-dipped with each other.

Said one male witness looking at his watch, “Yeah, this is no big deal at all…” before realizing he had to “…get back to work.”

The short service left many men wondering- were there really lesbians there as the phrase “Whoo!” was scarcely heard.

As for the couple, each woman pledged to love the other for the rest of their life, or until late next month, whichever came first.
