Fabulous former Golden Girl, Mrs Betty White, has come out in support of equal rights, saying to those who oppose gay marriage, “Mind your own business, take care of your affairs, and don’t worry about other people so much.” She opened up and opined for US celeb/gossip mag Parade’s Life’s a Scream interview, saying that, “there are gay relationships that are more solid than some heterosexual ones.”
And, for those of you long appreciative of the older gentleman in our youth-obsessed culture, “I’ve always liked older men. They’re just more attractive to me.“, adding with the characteristic wit that’s seen her through her eighty-eight years, “Of course, at my age there aren’t that many left!”
While labelling herself a “technological spaz”, she then goes on to show she’s much more savy than most News Networks these days by adding that she is “…leery of the Internet, especially of the way it can spread baseless rumors.” Well said Mrs White! Now over to the virtual country Glennbeckistan and Faux News for a discussion of Prez Obama’s 200-million-dollar-a-day trip to Asia. Now if we could just get Barry to stop faffing about and actually deliver more than just platitudes for gay rights.
The Golden Girls always did have great gay sensibilities, but great to see that the stars really did just get it. Especially hot on the heels of co-star Bea Arthur, who sadly died back in 2009, but left $300,000 to a shelter for gay homeless teenagers. Now these are true stars!
