Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts comes out, enlists in war on marriage
Man, have we mentioned what a fanfuckingtastic year it was to be gay in ‘Merica? It was! It still is! Hell, we even gayed up Utah. And now we’ve managed to force another high-profile celebrity to enlist on the front lines of the war on marriage. Step on up, Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts!
Roberts disclosed the relationship in a Facebook post in which she reflected on the past year. On Dec. 29, 2012, the news anchor celebrated 100 days post bone marrow transplant during her battle with myelodysplastic syndrome.
“At this moment I am at peace and filled with joy and gratitude,” Roberts wrote. “I am grateful to God, my doctors and nurses for my restored good health. I am grateful for my sister, Sally-Ann, for being my donor and giving me the gift of life. I am grateful for my entire family, my long time girlfriend, Amber, and friends as we prepare to celebrate a glorious new year together.”
America, she is busy kicking the ass of myelodysplastic syndrome, after previously murdering breast cancer, so wrecking your hetero marriages is going to be small potatoes after that. Also, how much stones does it take to just casually mention it on Facebook and then mic drop on out of there? Yes, yes, we know it was an open secret but that is different from telling god and everyone. Trust us on that one. This is probably extra special double true when “god and everyone” includes the millionty mainstream America viewers of GMA.
While we’re at it, let’s see how many celebrity notches we added to the old Big Gay Bedpost in 2013, shall we?
Now, in the interest of being all FoxNews stylee fair and balanced, let’s make sure we give equal time to the leading celebrity who stands athwart history yelling STOP THE GAYS right now, shall we?
Game, set, and match, homosexxicans. Better luck next year, bigots.
