Straight Men, Take Heed: Gay Guys Are Going to Marry Your Girlfriends (VIDEO)

As the saying goes, when it comes to men, “All the good ones are either married or gay.”

Now, any reasonable woman knows this isn’t true. But at some point in our lives, haven’t we all turned to our gay male friends in an inebriated state and slurred, “You’d make suuuch a good boyfrieennnnn…”?

No? Just me?

Anyway.

We may soon live in a world in which, instead of saying, “Go home, Charlotte, you’re drunk,” our gay friends will actually take us up on our rum-fueled offers. Or at least, that’s what they’re threatening to do.

In this (NSFW) CollegeHumor video, a group of gay men present straight men everywhere with an ultimatum: if you won’t use your voting power to help them marry each other, they’re going to “take one for the team” and marry your girlfriends. Don’t think they can? Think again.

The dudes present a very strong case for why they’d make better husbands than straight guys.

They’ll take your girlfriend to a dance class. They’ll listen to her talk about her problems for hours (in fact, they already do). Instead of the burnt scrambled eggs you hastily throw together for breakfast, these guys will make your girlfriend a quiche. I love quiche. Sold!

While this video may rely on tired stereotypes of gay men to make its point, it does so in a fun, lighthearted way. And the point is this: vote for marriage equality – if not because you believe in equal rights, then because you’re afraid of the alternative. Either that, or you’d better learn how to make a mean quiche.
