Jeremy Irons Compared Gay Marriage To Incest

jeremy irons gay marriage

My longstanding crush Jeremy Irons seems to have decided to ruin Jeremy Irons for me by comparing gay marriage to incest. Why did he have to do that? Why? Why did have to do this to me?

Jeremy Irons – do you know what you need to do to make me keep liking you? Fucking nothing. You do not need to do anything. You don’t need to talk at all! Play a sexual weirdo in a movie once a decade and we’re good. You’re still doing The Borgias! You’re doing that right now! You’re playing a Pope who sleeps with literally everyone onscreen! TV shows count! We’re already good!

Please, please just stop saying stuff like this regarding gay marriage:

“Could a father not marry his son?” Irons asked HuffPost Live host Josh Zepps. Irons argued that “it’s not incest between men” because “incest is there to protect us from inbreeding, but men don’t breed,” and wondered whether same-sex marriage might allow fathers to pass on their estates to their sons without being taxed.

 

“It seems to me that now they’re fighting for the name,” Irons said of advocates for same-sex marriage as opposed to civil unions. “I worry that it means somehow we debase, or we change, what marriage is. I just worry about that.”

No, Jeremy Irons. No, gay marriage would not allow for incest. That is crazy person logic. Look, it is already weird for me to be attracted to you, and it’s mostly because of the way you played Charles Ryder in Brideshead Revisited. It’s a little bit because of the crazy exhibited when you played Claus von Bulow in Reversal of Fortune. But I think you’re approaching the Dead Ringers kind of crazy, so just tone that down, just a little bit.

    Ugh, it blows my mind that anyone could compare two adults in a loving relationship with something so depraved as a parent & their child in a sexual relationship.

    he kind of has a point…whats the difference if its two consenting adults? watch this space…incest will be the new gay marriage in a few years…
