Gay Marriage Between Men and Women

Nicola Davison at Slate:
I'm at a fake-marriage market, where Chinese lesbians and gay men meet to find a potential husband or wife. In China, the pressure to form a heterosexual marriage is so acute that 80 percent of China's gay population marries straight people, according to sexologist Li Yinhe, a professor at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences. To avoid such unions, six months ago, Shanghai's biggest gay Web site, inlemon.cn, started to hold marriage markets once a month.
Shampagne all around.

"...and real pain for my sham friends!"

THAT's the great line, but I didn't think it really fit.

Substance McGravitas said...

Because, you know, I sure don't wish those folks pain. Looks like they're already getting it.

I cannot think of ANYDAMNTHING hotter than a chinese lesbian.

I'm willing to become gay if one would marry me and let me hang around with her friends...

Poor mikey, not in Vancouver to be rejected by Chinese lesbians.

well, it is really a good thing that such sham marriages would never happen in America, due to the Freedom Fries and the Wolverines and the Mitch McConnels and such like.
