Gay Rights Group Supports Brangelina Marriage Even Though They Said They Would Wait To Do So Until Everyone Can

They may have once said that they wouldn't tie the knot until everyone in this country could, but now Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have FINALLY announced their engagement, gay rights group Equality California has no problem that they didn't choose to wait!

Communications Director Rebekah Orr explains:

"Marriage is something that says ‘we're a family’ in a way that nothing else can … No one has to deny that for themselves or their family to prove they are an ally and supporter of equality."


Although the sentiment is lovely and much appreciated from them, their first priority is to themselves and their children, and we couldn't be more thrilled that they've finally taken this step!

Congratulations again, you two!

    i love love and hate hate i think god does too.

  2. 2

    What respect do either one of these people have for marriage?

  3. 3

    Re: Deja Vu – I wonder that too. They have already demonstrated that they are committed to each other, they are not religious, so why the need for a ceremony? But, each to their own, if it makes them happy, why not?

  4. 4

    So now the Gay's think they need to give permission for them to marry.

    Couple of freaks.

    why would they care what equity california thinks? it's none of their business. and if they didn't approve were they not supposed to marry ? what a fuckin' joke.

  8. 8

    Re: Deja Vu – None at all, since Brad strayed outside of his and Angie has had many affairs with married men.

  9. 9

    love him!!!

    Re: rosebud99 – I don't subscribe to the theory "if it makes you happy do it". Sorry. Brad hurt his "WIFE" when he began an affair with Angelina. If a man and a woman choose not to marry, that's fine, but under the law they are strangers. I personally feel it's a rejection of society.

    Re: Deja Vu – I feel that marriage is the archaic transfer of the possession of a woman from her father to her husband. I see changing attitudes of marriage not so much as a rejection of society, but of a changing society.

    I think he's a spineless idiot and I think she's a filthy whore who has mental issues. Both are cheaters, and both are addicted to attention. I think they're both wastes of oxygen who are paid way too much for what little they do. And who cares if the pro-gay groups approve of them getting married? Someone needs to silence that small, militant special interest group pronto. Get back in the closet and STFU!!

  13. 13

    Why would anyone marry a whore?

  14. 14

    Re: rosebud99 – You obviously feel very confident in the culture in which you live. Many parts of the world respect marriage, and it's commitment, because of the rights it affords women. Don't underestimate the support you receive from your government, and don't overestimate the misogyny that many cultures have towards women who are "single".

    amazing the way the 'news' (oxymoron) or should I say people with the power to publish, are flocking to this 'grand' announcement. I have seen some sites, stories, declaring their marriage will be bigger then the royal wedding last year. PLEASE!!!!! I decided to stay away from most 'celebrity' gossip sites, shows, rags… since around January. Visit the 'net sites every few weeks…. These people who 'live and breathe hollywood gossip' (PEREZ) should know-the only time I heard ANYTHING about them was around the academy awards. Both of them-their movies are far and few- most are low rated, and disappear within a few weeks. But, I have no doubt they will be on EVERYTHING when their wedding comes up-AND I will watch HBO

  16. 16

    Why is she standing like that? she looks like she wants to do a shit standing up

  17. 17

    What's the big deal considering marriage vows means absolutely to these two very sick people….

  18. 18

    Why these two are not committed to insane asylums is beyond any reasoning….

  19. 19

    WHY does everyone feel the need to ass-kiss these two cheaters? Not only did they use support for gay marriage as publicity for themselves, but then they blatantly said "Fuck you, gays, we're doing what you can't do even though we said we'd wait for you." They're not the only two human beings in the world getting married, either. And after they've each shitted on the concept and sanctity of marriage, why do it???? I'm ready for them to disappear. Brad, feed your betrothed or you'll be going to her funeral and not your wedding.

  20. 20

    They couldn't have waited until gay marriage was legal nationwide because it never will be. Right thinking states are starting to amend their constitutions to define marriage as between one man and one woman. Sorry gays.

  21. 21

    Wasn't it Jason Mraz and Tristan Prettyman who said that?

  22. 22

    Why so much hate? When I see these two with their beautiful family all I can feel is Love♥♥♥ Congratulations Brad and Angie and family! P.S. Can't wait to see that bling ring made with ♥!

    @Deja Vu: In societies where a woman has to marry to have rights, she doesn't actually have rights. She is an extension of her husband and under his protection. That isn't having rights. What you said actually supports the prior poster's assertion that marriage is based upon the antiquated idea of a woman as chattel.

  24. be strong says – reply to this


    In this country when a man proposes marriage, a woman feels she is loved so much that he makes a commitment for life. If they don't want marriage then they aren"t looking long term. You can debate this all you want, but this is still the bottom line and everyone knows it.

  25. 25

    Did they asked for their for permission or something? You find nothing but a collective yawning around the net over this underwellming news, they are has beens and not pretty anymore, so who cares! lol

    I wrote this elsewhere but can't be bothered to rewrite:
    If these folks are so damned evolved, with fantastic "values," then why are they demonstrating the ages-old behaviour associated with "buying yourself a wife" ?
    In other words, The Engagement Ring.
    Seriously, most folks consider the "ring" to be the most lovely part of an engagement, but if one were to do some research, they would find out the history behind the action.
    "Put a ring on it" means "own it."
    Historically, the ring demonstrated to other men who would "encroach" on the bride, that she was "taken." The bigger the ring, the more wealth and power of the "owner-to-be."
    Perhaps our romantic notions have slightly dimmed the meaning behind this practise over the years, but that doesn't change its original purpose on a psychological and financial level. It puts undue pressure on the "man" to demonstrate the lifestyle he's willing to "keep" his wife in, and the woman who greedily needs to have "the ring" - in my own humble opinion - is not only grossly uninformed, but unwittingly disturbing the power balance in their relationship and thereby contributing negatively to the future of feminine equality.

    Before gays drive themselves crazy trying to get "marriage" legal, perhaps they should look at the underlying chauvinistic reasons behind the ceremony in the first place.

    Re: be strong
    Re your comment: "If they don't want marriage then they aren"t looking long term."

    Hell yeah, I'm gonna debate this statement. It's absolute bullshit.
    Your response is naive and uneducated. Not to mention bloody ridiculous. That was a pretty broad stroke of judgment you just used to paint everyone who chooses not to marry. You are either under 20 years old, or completely brainwashed by religion and/or homophobic paranoia.
    If someone doesn't want marriage, it DOES NOT NECESSARILY MEAN they aren't prepared for a long-term committment.
    It could mean that they are refusing to bow to religious and government dictates that pressure them into signing their name on a registry.
    Marriage was created, (along with the "name change" of the woman) so that governments and churches could "keep track" of everyone. It was designed to give a man undue control over his "property." If a woman took his name, it meant that she was his. And if there were any children, it meant that the government and churches could keep track of bloodlines, DNA, and "which woman & child" (who weren't even considered "people" at the time) BELONGED to which man.

    If someone chooses not to marry, it could simply mean they're not interested in following SOMEONE ELSE's rules about LOVE.
    I pity your dim view of long-term committments.
    I pity your dim view of the power of the love and respect which can exist WITHOUT A PIECE OF PAPER.

    i assume there is a prenup for the impending divorce

  30. 30

    they are rocks for one another to hide under and behind the innocent kids whos lives may be eternally effed up by all the drama who knows

  31. 31

    And their opinion matters on this marriage decision why…

  32. Al Brown says – reply to this


    that is

  33. 33

    the only sin against love..is denying it.
    i also think theyre getting married because the kids are questioning them about it.

    Re: Brainiac – I knew this would strike a nerve. I am so waaaaay past twenty, so no, I am not naive or brain-washed. I have been around a long enough time to have heard every line and every excuse to why someone doesn't want to officially marry, that's all. The most ridiculous excuse is the one most people recite about marriage being just a piece of paper. Yes, well most still want that little piece of paper. I agree, not all, but most.

  35. be strong says – reply to this


    Re: be strong – Also, Brainiac, when I was nineteen, my husband bought me my engagement ring with what was left over from his student loan. Years later we are in a financial position where I could have a much larger stone. I wouldn't trade my ring for Elizabeth Taylor's 10 carat. Most women would feel the same way. It was insulting to be called greedy.

    Re: be strong
    I stand by my comments.
    If you are insulted by my calling women who need "the ring" greedy, then I obviously struck a nerve with you, and that's your problem.
    Enjoy your ring. Brag about it, even.
    I still believe it's an archaic and unenlightened practise.
    And I'VE certainly been around long enough to know I'm not the only one who thinks so.

    And about "hearing all the excuses," do you honestly believe that EVERYONE in a long-term committment HAS to marry, and if they don't, they're just using an "excuse" ?
    You ARE naive and uneducated. People DO NOT need a piece of paper, unless they need the whole freakin' world to "acknowledge" it as "valid."
    And committing oneself to a relationship without marriage doesn't make it any LESS important, or "valid."
    Having been in one for 20+ years myself, I ain't making any EXCUSES for refusing to marry. I love my partner and intend to continue to do so without a piece of paper.

    And that's not an "excuse." It is my choice. Governments and churches have had their messy hands all over romantic relationships since they realized they could control people that way. I don't care, and my partner doesn't care, whether the GOVERNMENT or THE CHURCH thinks we are "valid."
    I know in my heart that we are.

    Re: Brainiac – Well say what you want but Shannon cried like a baby when Gene Simmons FINALLY proposed to her after 20 years and I bet your common-law wife would too. Of course she says she's fine with it, what else can she say?
