Are tegan and sara dating each other

28 Oct

I absolutely believe that the average person out there doesn’t care. I mean when all the gay marriage heat came up in 2008 I think it was Rufus Wainwright who said, “Why do we want to get married? And they don’t care, they’re like, this whole thing of marriage.

People get married and divorced 10 times in their life. My parents were divorced, which—a lot of my friends’ parents were divorced—but then my mother was in a serious, long term relationship and never married him, so my idea of what love and commitment and relationship is, is very different from the average person’s.

And I remember sitting there watching the bears go by, and the naked people, and the Dykes on Bikes, and I just remember having this compulsion to turn to my mom and be like, “That’s not me! ” And just one float after another, of the young twinks in their underwear all spraying each other down. But as a 20-year-old, I absolutely just wanted to say, “I’m just like you, mom.

I just want to have a girlfriend and move in together and get a cat and play music and I don’t wanna get naked and ride around on a motorcycle!

Even though I am Canadian and I could move my partner here and we could legally get married, there is something that just makes me feel so sad.

I just don’t feel it’s fair, I don’t feel like I should benefit and also while I expect and will fight to have that right in America I absolutely do not feel I It just doesn’t feel right.

There’s not a lot of big trashy guitars or anything.

But I’m excited, God, we’ve been doing it for so long, we’re so old. I just feel like, how do you tour for two years, doing what you’ve already done? I guess so, but you know as far back as 2003 it’s seemed normal in Canada, when the courts approved it and most of the provinces.

You know, we were gonna be musicians and not go to university, and we were gay, and I think she just thought, “Oh Lord, what kind of life are you gonna have?So marriage isn’t even something I really thought about until a few years ago, and Prop 8.Even as a gay person, for a long time not much of my life was consumed by this.And then those people turn around and say, “well, we’ve got to protect marriage.”Oh my God, it’s like you’ve been eavesdropping on my life for the past month. And I absolutely do feel like there is now this pressure on gay people where we too now have to get married or else our relationships aren’t as significant or relevant.People say it to me all the time, gay and straight, “when are you gonna take it to the next level?” Although she had tons of gay friends and was a social worker, parts of it still scared her.But the first year that we were gay, she came to Vancouver and we went to the Pride parade.Like a lot of ‘em, were just like “Gay Pride, yuck, don’t care, don’t want to be part of that” and then others were like going to 500 different events. And it sort of feels like San Francisco in that it feels like a big portion of the city participates.Well, I gotta say, I remember my first Pride parade, when I first moved to Vancouver.So I think a true Tegan and Sara fan will absolutely still hear the essence of Tegan and Sara.But it’s just a little more slick and it’s definitely not as much of a rock band record, that’s for sure.
