Elton John Says "F–k You" To Gay Marriage Opponents

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayLove LineElton JohnLGBT


Seems like Elton John has had a change of heart.

With the passing of Prop 8 back in 2008, Elton John said he wasn't a big fan of the word "marriage,' and that he and longtime partner David Furnish are "very happy with a a civil partnership" and "if gay people want to get married, or get together, they should have a civil partnership."

Now Sir Elton has changed his mind and had some harsh words for gay marriage opponents at the $3 million fundraiser for the American Foundation for Equal Rights earlier this week in Los Angeles.

Elton told the crowd, "It seems so ridiculous I could be with my partner for 17 years and we have a son, and my partner and I can't get married," then yelled out a "f–k you" to those responsible from keep him from getting married.

Glad you've changed your tune, Elton.

    David is Canadian, and he knows damn well he could get married in Canada and it would be legal. He can talk the talk, but He can't walk the walk.

    **** ..!.,

    Man, ….


    …ol' Reggie Dwight's look like some washed-up, played-out, jowly drag queen.


    Maybe it's his dive mean-spirited nastiness that's showing up on his face like the painting of Dorian Grey reflected its owner's own horrid personality back to him.


    Oh well, maybe he and Rush Limbaugh can go to some tropical island and share a gaggle of fey twinkie Rent-Boys together.

    What a gas bag. He is privileged because of his early fame. Who the hell cares if he's "married" or not? It's his $$ that has allowed him to adopt. He sold out his integrity when he made a million by performing at Rush Limpball's wedding. Before that, I had no opinion; I only knew I liked his early music.

    Quite a role model for that new son of his. Beautiful, articulate language :)

    Marriage is between and man and a woman, so fuck you Elton

    F U to all the Republicans who hate America and are trying to turn this country into a fascist state run by corporations NOT by the people.

    i completely agree! theyve been together 17 yrs and marriage is NOT between a man and a woman where does it say that? in fact the definition of marriage is a union between two ppl who LOVE EACH OTHER. so i say someone getting married to someone in vegas they met two hours ago is more of an abomination than gay marriage! fuck all the ppl that are telling these ppl that they are second class citizens!
    congratulations on ur beautiful baby boy, btw!

    I went to school with Dave (David now, as he prefers) Furnish from Kindergarten to high school. We were in the same Creative Writing class and he lived near me. He is one of the nicest people, (one who did not pick on me in grade 1-5 because I was half Jewish. I think I had a 2-day crush on him when I was 13 (I saw it in my diary).We didn't hang out in the same group but I always though highly of him.

    I wish him & Elton lots of happiness with their new baby. I think Dave can wallk the walk just fine - he's done pretty good so far.He was doing very well on his own in England before he melt Elton John.

    I don't know why so many here are so negative and judgemental, and I agree with Elton John that it's ridiculous that they can't get married in England. Why they don't do it in Toronto - guess that's their business, but I for one am glad I live in a country that is accepting of other people's differences.

    I just want to say that his son is so adorable! awww

    Re: ithinkpigsarecool – thank you!!! thats words out of my mouth, i couldnt agree more!

    Re: mistyluv7 – Sorry I've offended you with my misinformation. I was thinking mostly of the age and life-style of these rich and famous people. It strikes me more of vanity than parentage and marriage. "Sorry" is the hardest word on this site.

    Golly, Elton sure looks like a 50+ yr old post menapausal woman. Actually I believe he and Susan Boyle are really the same person.

    Imagine growing up with these two creepy dudes as you mom dad?

  14. 14

    go girl!! :)

    I had the same thought as many others- he played Rush's wedding for money so it seems a bit hypocritical.

    beautiful i love elton and that is so true
    they are effed in the head for trying to stop people having the same rights as other citizens they pay taxes and do alot of things for the country so why cant they have equal rights its insane

    elton is king of rock

    Good that's how I feel too. I think all those anti gay activists basically just found a fancy way to waive their middle fingers at gay people. And after years of watching people debate on my lifestyle, I'm sick of it. F–k them. I say find another problem in the world and focus on that.

    you censor this but you posted multiple times about pink's new song and dont censor it

  19. 19

    and I say FUCK YOU back Elton, you and your partner didn't have a son. Why didn't you? Because it is against nature for two men to have children. There is a reason after all for marriage and it is called procreation. You can screw who you want I don't care that is between you and God, but when it comes to marriage it should only be for men and women.

    As a complete intellectual not believing in the big man in the sky or any other form or religion designed from lies to keep people in line I realized that love in any form is a good thing. On a side note and I know I am reaching here and you may not understand this but making fun of others as I see below here will not make you better. It only serves to show you lack education or breeding ah the little people working hard every day like sheepeople. Come on now its 2011 is it not time for us to evolve above our parents and stop believing in fairly tales like Jesus and Allah

    Why do we want to control everyone? Government free marriage is the only way to fix this issue. Time to change the argument. Why are we asking the government to control our lives? Why do we want the government to recognize anything? For or against should not be the argument, government free marriage NOW!

    Re: cookie555 – you're an Idiot…Faith is all what keeps us insane..i can see in your comment that you're just another bully to tell me the imaginary guy in the sky doesn't do me any good..but guess what ,my believes and prayers have helped me more than so called friend or family , whenever I need it.

    Re: lala44 – You shouldn't have gay friends. Cut ties with them. They aren't your dogs, they aren't your hairstylists they want to marry the people they fall in love with, not horses. This is the old, I'm not homophobic I just don't want to see gay people bit… cut ties with your gay friends and quit using them, they diserve genuine friends.

    Re: mankymonkey – I could ramble and make a very eloquent point about what you said. But in the interest of the post, I'll keep it simple. F–k you.

  27. 27

    He said civil…….. read it!

  28. 28

    I love when people say they "could" do something and then don't. Well…..it is obviously because you can't.

  29. 29

    Re: mankymonkey – Ok first off you start by saying "elton, you and your partner didn't have a son". how ominous, he in fact did have a son. you're right, it's against nature for two men to have a child. if one of them carried the child, something would definitely be a-miss. and lastly, I feel your anger with gays is between you and God. you have no idea who i do and don't sleep with, and you certainly don't have a say between me and God. I know where I stand and don't need your input… like I said earlier it's 2011 and there are millions of problems on this planet, spend a day finding something else to criticize, because you probably have no idea what it might be like to be physically attracted to men instead of women.
