Jeremy Irons Fears Same Sex Marriage For Tax Purposes; What The F**k

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitik

What… the f*ck.

We loved him in The Man In The Iron Mask (sup Leo), but c'mon!

Using a hypothetical argument that's imposed on a few hypothetical bad apples to justify why same sex marriage could potentially be hazardous is absurd!!

But unfortunately, Jeremy Irons has unleashed his concern of the legalization of same sex marriage, because HE worries that fathers will then marry their sons to avoid certain taxes.

In a recent interview, he theorized:

"Tax wise, it' s an interesting [question]. Could a father not marry his son?"

When then reminded of the laws against incest, he replied:

"It's not incest between men. Incest is there to protect us from having …uh…inbreeding. But men don't breed. But men don't breed so incest wouldn't cover that. But if that was so, if I wanted to pass on my estate without estate duties, I could marry my son and pass on my estate to him."

Uh.. we hate to burst his bubble, but the definition of incest is broader than breeding grounds, defined as the "sexual intercourse between family members and close relatives." Nothing specific about men and women there, Jeremy!

Regardless, he went on to clarify that taxes are the only concern he has, and that he wishes the best for everyone:

"Everybody who's living with one other person the best of luck in the world, because it's fantastic. Living with another animal, whether it be a husband or a dog, is great. It's lovely to have someone to love. I don't think sex matters at all. What it's called doesn't matter at all."

Um, thanks?

We realize Jeremy was just over-thinking the situation and possibly plays devil's advocate about everything, but dude… way to add fuel to the wrong side!

It really just sucks because there ARE laws against incest, and we're betting every same sex couple wishing to be married would happily welcome the same rule against family-on-family sex.

Because really, all we're wanting is equality.

    A remarkably stupid thing to say, since all canon and civil law governing marriage, whether same-sex marriage is allowed or not, prohibits marriage between those too closely related, such as parent and child. Presumably, then, this is what prevents heterosexual men from marrying their daughters to gain whatever advantage Irons refers to. His assertion is, nevertheless, typical of those by opponents of same-sex marriage, who prefer hysteria and foolishness to reality.

    Jeremy Irons is not homophobic, so let's make sure we aren't trying to imply that he is. He simply is stating that things could get trickier down the road once gay marriage is legalized, with other people claiming marriage rights. It won't happen on a large scale, but it will happen.

    Nowhere in the interview does Jeremy Irons say that he "fears" same-sex marriage. Same old Perez, same old lies. Oh, and if you care so much about same-sex marriage, why are you pimping out "Ender's Game" - a movie written by a member of the anti-gay marriage league? Perez the Hypocrite!

    Anyone trying to imply that Jeremy Irons is homophobic has no idea what they are talking about. At the 1991 Tony Awards, Jeremy Irons was one of the few celebrities to wear the recently created "red ribbon" to support the fight against AIDS, and he was the *first* celebrity to ever wear the red ribbon onscreen.

    I always thought Jeremy Irons was gay? Anyways, he's giving his opinion on the domino effect of creating new laws.

    Can someone remind Jeremy that opposite-sex marriage is nearly always used for tax breaks. Why is same-sex marriage different. As for…er…. this bringing with it a rush of fathers and sons looking to get married….eh….. Jeremy should probably stop smoking whatever it is he has up his arse.

    This kind of an argument is insane. Men and women could do the same thing then! Marry to pretend so they get certain tax benefits. What about a man marrying his daughter to avoid the same tax? WTH? Talk about a S….T…..R….E….T….C….H to try to make a case for hate.

    Re: Gem – He is HOMOPHOBIC there is no reason other than that to make such asinine statements.

    Eww. He has a fucking weird mind,

    Re: Zodac – Thank you, I did not know that, but have always loved him as an actor.

    Do mothers marry their sons now? Do brothers marry sisters? People in love get married and it will continue to be this way.

    Marriage will no longer have value if the ban gets lifted. The ONLY thing gays will do is screw others out of a tax break. Americana government isnt going to give any additional tax breaks. Not without it hurting the middle class again

    Re: Gem – Then what the other poster said holds - how many men have married their daughters to gain this advantage? I'd guess NONE! It's not a valid point if you're educated and intelligent enough to see this.
