HomoQuotable – Rupert Everett

“For me, being gay was about wanting to do the opposite of the
straight world, so I think that’s where my problems in this particular
area come from. For me, personally, the last thing I would like in the
entire world would be to go through cocktailing my sperm with my
boyfriend and finding some grim couple in Ohio who are gluten-free and
who you pay $75,000 to have your baby. To me it feels absolutely
hideous. But that’s me, just me. I’m not having a go at gay couples who
do. I think if Elton and David want to have babies, that’s wonderful. I
think we should all do what we want. Isn’t there a middle way,
where you can just say, ‘Not for me, but it doesn’t matter’? But no,
everything’s sort of turned into al-Qaida. I’m sure I’m going to be
nail-bombed. David Furnish is probably going to send Patrick Cox with a
bomb and blow up the theatre.” – Rupert Everett, speaking to the Guardian about his widely-criticized denouncement of gay parenting.
