Progress!

It's coming! Whether you like it or not!

For the first time EVER, more than half of Americans think that it should be legal for gays and lesbians get married!

According to recent survey, support for gay marriage in the United States is at 53%, a HUGE jump from the 32% of support that it received in 2004!

While opposition has risen to more than 2-1 among Republicans and conservatives and 3-1 among evangelical white Protestants, support has grown dramatically among Catholics, political moderates, adults in their 30s and 40s, and in men!

AMAZING! As proud as we are, however, we still have a LONG way to go!

Keep fighting the good fight, everyone! EQUALITY IS COMING.

    A poll is only as good as the pollsters conducting it and the area(s) in which it was conducted. If it was done in areas more liberal than conservative, then you're going to get the opposite result then you'd get if it was done in more conservative areas. I don't believe that 53% of all Americans are in favor of gay marriage. You need to stop putting your own interpretation on things and you need to stop posting your gay crap on here. This is supposed to be a celebrity gossip site. You've been asked by many readers to stop this, and you refuse, yet you wonder why you get the negative feedback that you do and declining numbers. If the gay agenda is so popular and widely accepted, do a "Gay Perez" site and leave your gossip readers in peace. You won't convince or convert us by bombarding us with your relentless and misleading propaganda. I'm trying to give you some good, constructive advice here, Mario.

    "Opposition rises" is figurative language. It does not mean that more Republicans and Protestants oppose it than BEFORE, but that more oppose it than the general public.



  3. 3

    And you say the opposition has increased for Republicans and conservatives… well, if the people in favor of it has risen that means more and more Republicans support it now than before because the left has always been in favor of it… And like the previous poster, polls can be manipulated to say whatever that side wants it to say..



  4. 4

    What queer bar was that pole taken at.



  5. 5

    Really? and where were this people when gay marriage was on the ballot in their respective states??



  6. 6

    liberals only make up approx 20% of this country. i call a big fat BULLSHIT on this one!! perez, you try so hard to mainstream gay marriage when all you need to do it STFU



  7. 7

    perez. i dont know why you campaign so hard. nobody wants to marry your disgusting ass.



  8. 8

    Not in Maryland. You gave that state 3 queer cheers 2 weeks ago, They already killed it.



  9. 9

    Great news! I never understood why people don't accept gay marriage.



  10. 10

    Good! This should be a non-issue anyway. Legalize it so we can move on. It is ridiculous that anyone opposes gay marriage. Who the fuck are you and shut your GD mouth. Equality is needed here in the US bc in reality, we aren't the "free" nation we claim to be. Religion controls way too many laws here! Gays have much more rights in other more progressive countries.



  11. 11

    Over 307 Million people in the USA. What do you think the odds are that half of our population was polled? I'd be willing to bet that more people are for the legalization of marijuana than gay marriage… just sayin.



  12. 12

    Re: La Garse – well said



  13. 13

    I think that most people would agree with allowing gay couples to have the same legal rights as a married couple (civil unions) but are against calling it a marriage. I doubt this poll is correct.



  14. 14

    AMEN to La Garse. Not everyone that reads your blog is gay or liberal Perez. I read this site for CELEBRITY GOSSIP because that is what it is supposed to be. I know you are a raging homo but seriously. Enough is enough.



  15. 15

    "It's coming! Whether you like it or not!" I wouldn't be so quick to make that statement Perez! If you have a state like CA that can't even get it passed, that says A LOT! I am all for civil unions, just not "marriage".



  16. 16

    I for one hope that it eventually becomes law everywhere. I could care less if two men or two women who love eachother want to get married. It has no effect on my marriage. I'm not God and will never pass judgement on anyone else. There isn't blood flowing in the streets where this is already law. If people are so worried about the sanctity of marriage, then make divorce illegal.



  17. 17

    You've been known to make stuff up in the past, Mario. Castro is out of power, Michael Jackson is faking being sick, etc. Who conducted the study? How many people were polled? What is the margin of error? Or is this something you just pulled out of your a$$?



  18. 18

    that. is. AWESOME!!!!!!! EQUALITY FOR ALL!



  19. 19

    I'm a gay man, and I believe in marriage between TWO people regardless of gender, however, most gay men are very promiscuous and unable to be faithfull and bringing several people into their ”relationship”, that I don't consider a stable or committed relationship. This happens often in gay (male) relationships so therefore, I don't care for marriage. I realize this happens in straight couples as well, but not as often. Maybe you should cool down your jets with your gay agenda for a bit, frankly it gets annoying.



  20. 20

    Cool!



  21. 21

    Mormons
    Catholics
    Jews

    We don't support you! More than half is BULLSHIT. Prop 8 died for a reason fool.



  22. 22

    Re: La Garse – That is because most gays have a hidden agenda. Perez is using this site to push his agenda for gay marriage, etc…..

    really sad isn't it. but don't worry…most of us don't like him either.



  23. 23

    perez, this is one of the only things we will ever agree with.
    all though im not gay,
    i know whats that like to have people be against you for such a shady reason.
    it angers me how much people have to deal w. prejudices to be with the one they love. and makes me more mad when they say they will go to hell or pull the bible out. im a christian, and we are taught in church to love everyone. and that god loves everyone.
    you do not choose who goes to hell and who doesnt, and not everyone is Christian.
    and the gays arent harming anyone, AT ALL! The prejudices are causing all the harm and you see that a lot in american history
    you live your life, and they live theirs, you dont have to like it, but you have no right to cause harm to people and take their rights away and threaten them
    like gaga said, its not equal if its only sometimes, and this country is not equal despite what other ppl think. its not equal if its only for some people, or under some circumstances. if its against the law to marry the one your in love with, than thats not equality, that is hardcore discrimination. the banning of gay marriage is against what america is supposed to stand for and is simply unconstitutional



  24. 24

    hard to take you seriously when just a few posts above this you've got hearts and "yum" written on a picture of usher. and your tendency to tag posts as "icky icky poo" doesn't lend much credibility to your cause either. just go back to playing hop scotch and reading "tiger beat" magazine. fucking baby.



  25. 25

    I love that you arn't afraid to speak out about gay marriage. While most polls are incredably wrong, made up or just plain non-sense, Im glad that you are active in the community and with more people like you, gay marriage just might be a real possibilty one day. I would love to see equality spread nationwide to the gay community. I don't see a reason to fight this. Gay marriage will not affect my life, my childrens lives or my religious views. I will continue to live my life as I have been doing, and so will all of you. If you are really worried about the religious aspect of all of this, all I have to say is that it's still not your problem, everyone has their own personal relationship with God, if they believe, and they will be judged accordingly, based on both personal choices and commitment to the lord. Did any of you stop to think that maybe your slate wont be so clean when that time comes? Fix yourself, make yourself perfect before going after others.
    For everyone on here attacking this web-site because of the constant gay awareness updates and post, grow up and get over yourselves! Im almost 100% positive you ALL knew this kind of thing would be here, if you don't like the way he runs HIS website, or you feel the intense need to bash him because of the content he runs on HIS website, feel free to leave and not come back. Im sure there are other celebrity gossip sites to suit your homophobic needs.

    Re: La Garse – Couldn't have said it better!



  27. 27

    Seriously ass jockey, I wasn't polled and it's my guess that EVERY American wasn't polled either and if that's the case. Well said La Garse!!!!



  28. 28

    Re: AshleyMarie415 – I would have to agree with you…I don't give a shit what these people do just don't call it marriage.



  29. 29

    Re: JmHickernell – you must be related…lol. pfft. get over YOURself. blah blah blah



  30. 30

    Re: JmHickernell – He makes HIS money from HIS site because people like ME visit it, you moron. WE have the right, considering that WE help fund Perez's useless ASS, to protest his whole gay fixation. You are an IDIOT and should be supervised at all times. You should be prevented from posting until you learn to think first.
    .
    Re: YRUFATT – I'm relieved to know that, because I'm tired of his gay agenda.



  31. 31

    Re: La Garse
    Bitch, please! You are really twisted. Gossip sites are a dime a dozen. You can get your fill of gossip anywhere. You KNOW this is a pro-gay site and you KNOW Perez will not back down, so it's your own stupidity that keeps you coming back here despite the "declining numbers" of readers who are allegedly fed up with it. What makes you think you're so grand or important that Perez should heed your advice?



  32. 32

    Re: Sissy Burden – Likewise? Lmfao



  33. 33

    I dont believe these stats for one second! Primarily because every single time gay marriage has been put on a ballot so the people could vote…its failed..in every single state its been done in. Most people have no problem with the way people live their lives. But until 2 people of the same sex can procreate.. It will never be equal to a heterosexual union ..ever. And most people understand that.



  34. 34

    that's disgusting. love should be between a man and a woman. if your gay then your going to hell when you die. you bunch of sick fucks.



  35. 35

    Re: Glyzinie
    That's your best response?



  36. 36

    Re: white_is_ugly
    Well, keep a seat warm for them, since your own ignorance is sending you to hell as well.



  37. 37

    i am all for equality, what I hate is how theones being treated unfairly make such a big deal out of it. Try working a minimum wage job and see how many people feel your complaints when you cant smoke for 2 hours.



  38. 38

    Mario you never know what you're talking about do you?



  39. 39

    Re: Shelah – you must be 12, lol… Try that again when you learn to crawl out of the playpen.

    Re: La Garse – maybe you should create your own blog?

    [re=5645183]Re: La Garse[/re

    You are right, he does make his money off unrelenting assholes such as yourself. To me it would seem that you are the IDIOT here, seeing how you keep coming back to help him makes his money. Good Job. I was simply stating that if people didn't like the way the site was ran, there are other sites out there, but if your hellbent on sticking to this website then by all means, please do, help him keep this website alive so that he can keep pissing you off and not care about your opinion, but you better lube the fuck up hunny, cause this website is chalk full of gays, gay supporters, and dicks like you who actually think their opinions matter, and we don't need you getting butt hurt the next time another gay subject comes up on a website that was created by a gay man. Grow the hell up and stop acting like someone killed your retarded puppy! Better yet, just go play in traffic.



  43. 43

    HAHAHAHHAHAHAHA Same-sex marriage in US?!?!? Yeah, sure… I forgot it was the land of freedom!
    If people are against free health care for everybody (HEALTH… LIVES) they will vote for gays to get married.
    I'm sorry… but as I take care of my own stupid and crappy society of Argentina (we gays can actually get married here since last year nationwide), u people in the US have to admit that urs reigned by cavemen in disguise.



  44. 44

    This is fantastic. Support is only going to increase :)



  45. 45

    Yay! That's amazing!



  46. 46

    It's important for the Democratic party to win the 2012 elections. Otherwise, it will be 4 years of hell for the American population and the same sex rights will stall again. You must not let that happen. Vote Obama!!!



  47. 47

    You know what's disgusting? People who DON'T support gay marriage. Are still stuck in the god damn middle ages? Horrible horrible people. If there is a hell, you'll be in it you stupid disgusting trolls.



  48. 48

    so many of you idiotic, homophobic, conservative, ect, ect……fools are such pawns in Perez's little game. of course he will never stop with his, oh god i can't even believe i'm going to write this laughable phrase, "gay agenda", LOL!!!! look at how many comments he gets when he mentions anything about gay rights. boo-hoo-hoo, this is suppose to be a celebrity gossip site. yeah right. HaHaHa!!!!

    Re: La Garse
    this is who did the polling if you would have bother to look it up.
    *
    Gary Langer’s been writing “The Numbers” blog at ABCNews.com since 2006, drawing a substantial audience to his ongoing evaluation of recent polls, historical and contextual observations and commentary on survey limitations.

    A single entry posted the night of the 2008 New Hampshire presidential primary attracted more than 350,000 readers to Langer’s comments on the problematic pre-election polls in that contest. Other material has ranged widely – discussions of measurement and methodology, presentation of groundbreaking academic work and the latest insights on policy, politics and social trends, often drawn from detailed secondary evaluation of existing data.

    In the crowded field of polling commentary in 2008, ‘The Numbers” was selected as winner of The Iowa-Gallup Award for Excellent Journalism Using Polls from the University of Iowa School of Journalism and Mass Communication and the Gallup Organization.

    "ABC News' 'The Numbers' provided an exemplary public service with its illuminating reports on polling results," Jim Clifton, Gallup’s chairman and CEO, said in making the award. "Important issues throughout the historic election year were meticulously investigated and clearly explained to their broad audience in articles that highlighted the value of polling when it was well executed and chastised practitioners when it was not."

    Re: diamondheart – wow if you really are a gay man you should feel so proud of yourself for stereotyping other gay men when it comes to monogamy. i have known lots of gay male couple who have been completely faithful to each other and i have known lots of straight couples who have cheated on each other. just because you are a promiscuous gay man who obviously can't keep his dick in his pants please don't assume all gay men are whores like you. you should be ashamed of yourself for perpetrating myths about entire groups of people.



  51. 51

    Times are changing. Let people love who they want. If you don't like then just don't look. Equal rights for all.



  52. 52

    In the Bible there is only a few verses you can use to "support" gay marriage ban…but it right out tells you that you cannot divorce unless adultery is involved. Yet the divorce rate in this God fearing nation is over 50% and rising… I can't understand the hypocrisy sometimes.

    We talk about the GAY AGENDA…but the religious agenda is to turn gays AWAY from God and heaven. Don't let them win. Love your God, love your partner, just love.



  53. 53

    When saying that Hawaii passed the civil unions law is incorrect, the credit is to those in office who voted for it. The people of Hawaii votes was not respected, thank you Reps who voted against it…



  54. 54

    and what survey is that? maybe if that question was asked while voting i'd be shocked. i can't really believe the majority in Texas and all these midwest and southern states play a huge part. i'm all for gay rights but hard to believe a random "survey" says much. a lot of people create surveys~



  55. 55

    Re: La Garse – amen to what "La Garse" said. Perez, that logo of yours is so stupid. you talk shit and kiss ass to everyone. i think you like getting beat and feeling like shit.



  56. 56

    you keep deleting my comments cause they hurt. oink



  57. 57

    Re: BITCHyoulostyourmind – Yeah, and 53% of statistics are made up.



  58. 58

    Re: Dutchie2010 – Not everyone has to agree with you. If you are entitled to your opinion that gays should be able to get married, them I am entitled to my opinion that they should not be able to get married. Tolerance goes both ways and gays are some of the least tolerant people around these days.



  59. 59

    Re: La Garse – you have got to be kidding me. that it the most prejudiced thing i've ever heard. shut up. seriously.



  60. 60

    Im only 16, but I can't wait to tell my kids and future generations about this fight for equality. I'm straight, but have gay/lesbian friends, and my sister is a lesbian, and I'm excited for the day when being prejudiced against gays will hold the same stigma being prejudiced against blacks has.
