Elton John To Marriage Opponents: ‘F**k You’


According to Huffington Post:

The legendary musician and gay icon performed at a $3 million fundraiser for the American Foundation for Equal Rights in support of marriage rights, and issued some harsh words for opponents of equality.

“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,” he told the crowd (via AP), before issuing a “f*ck you,’ to those responsible for keeping him from marriage.

It was a different sentiment than what he said two years ago, when Proposition 8 was passed in California.

“We have a civil partnership,” he said, talking about he and longtime partner, David Furnish. “What is wrong with Proposition 8 is that they went for marriage. Marriage is going to put a lot of people off, the word marriage,” he said to USA Today at a gala for his Elton John AIDS Foundation in 2008. “I don’t want to be married. I’m very happy with a civil partnership. If gay people want to get married, or get together, they should have a civil partnership. The word ‘marriage,’ I think, puts a lot of people off.”
