I ended up on Dan Savage’s youtube page. (You know Rick Santorum’s ‘Google Problem?’ In April 2003 Santorum made some now infamous comments equating bestiality and pedophilia to homosexuality and in response Savage, a prominent gay activist, writer, and sex columnist – oh my! – created the website and the campaign that gave Santorum that ‘Google Problem.’)
Obviously Dan Savage isn’t a shining example of dialed down rhetoric regarding Rick Santorum but I thought perhaps he would address his choice of tactics somehow. Or something. I don’t even know. It was late. I didn’t have a masterplan.
At any rate, I came across this really great clip about longterm relationships that doesn’t have anything to do with Google Problems. It’s from 2009 so it’s not exactly a trending topic but I found it insightful and all around awesome so I thought I’d share. (Warning: NSFWV.)
Watching it I was like, “OMG! Ozzy and Harriet would so agree with this! Yay timeless truths!” I mean, Ozzy and Harriet probably wouldn’t have explained it quite this way. They weren’t very big on the word “fuck” or the gay community. But they’d totally have been on board with the “don’t stress out about the little things and allow your relationship to help you and your partner strive to be the highlight reel version of yourselves” sentiment.
