If you were on Twitter last week, you probably saw the hashtags #72days and #ThingsLongerThanKimsMarriage trending in the wake of Kim Kardashian's announcement that she filed for divorce from her husband of 72 days, Kris Humphries. While the news sparked many negative reactions, no one was angrier than those from the LGBT community. 11 Things That Were Longer Than Kim Kardashian's 'Marriage'
Take this article from San Diego's LGBT weekly, which highlights other starlets who've also been married for a very short time (don't forget Britney Spears and her 55-hour marriage!). It begs the question: Why do gays and lesbians put the sanctity of marriage in danger when there are people like Kim and Britney out there who take it as a joke?
Here's the answer: They don't.
For me, this is just another reason to boycott the Kardashians forever (and here are even more reasons to do so). And based on these responses I saw on Twitter, I have a feeling some people from the LGBT community are boycotting the famous family, too:
@TheDrunkySingle: #ThingsLongerThanKimsMarriage - The LGBT community's fight to actually marry.
@AlanColmes: Kardashians much bigger threat to sanctity of marriage than anything the LGBT community does
@MrAndrewEdwards: What makes me even MORE angry is that @KimKardashian stupid divorce will get more national press then LTGB marriage equality #USA
@FCB1984: No, no, you're right. My right to marriage equality would definitely make a mockery of the institution #kimkardashian #72days
@mcdonaldcomedy: Kardashian marriage over after 72 days. And gay people still can't get married because it "ruins the concept of marriage?" Wow.
@Shoq: Why isn't Focus On The Family screaming about what @KimKardashian has done to the institution of marriage? Hypocrites! #p2 #LGBT
Tell us: What effect do you think Kim Kardashian's quickie divorce has had on the sanctity of marriage?
