Joshua as a Wheel of Fortune contestant, from San Diego, announced to the audience and national TV that he had been married to his husband for two years. How could one be offended by such openness in America where same sex marriages are legal? Josh appeared to feel quite comfortable revealing details about his private life on America’s Game freely disclosing he enjoyed camping and hiking with his male spouse during the always brief, but witty, Pat Sajak welcoming of contestants. Sajak appeared to be faintly uncomfortable/nervous, but that is why his salary is $12,000,000 per year. He has to be ready for people from all walks of life and sexual orientations.
If somebody declared they were gay on a game show in the 90’s, as unlikely as such an event would be, it would have been quite the controversial, news making occurrence. These days, the United States has much more of the live and let live ethos.
Couples who cannot procreate are a good thing given overpopulation and the prevalence of famine. It sort of balances all the heterosexual couples who procreate like rabbits, but do not have the means to feed the hungry mouths of their progeny. Gay couples adopting kids from this type of poverty sounds like some help to a difficult problem. Castrating indigent males is a more radical, but 100% effective way to stunt incidence of hungry children.
I am happy to see gay couples living happily and without fear in state like California which actually had programs and policies to “cure being gay” not too long ago.
