Miley Cyrus Writes Gay Marriage Column for Glamour Magazine

She's just being Miley.
Miley Cyrus’ op-ed column in the March issue of Glamour Magazine explains why for her, gay marriage is a no-brainer. Sure, it reads like it was written by someone who spent her formative years in a blonde wig and pleather everything instead of in a classroom, but her earnest support for our personal liberties is of course appreciated.

Miley writes:

Imagine finding someone you love more than anything in the world, who you would risk your life for but couldn’t marry. And you couldn’t have that special day the way your friends do—you know, wear the ring on your finger and have it mean the same thing as everybody else. Just put yourself in that person’s shoes. It makes me feel sick to my stomach.

When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, “All LOVE is equal,” a lot of people mocked me—they said, “What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!” And I said, “Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.” The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, “Dude, everyone lay off.” Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?

I believe every American should be allowed the same rights and civil liberties. Without legalized same-sex marriage, most of the time you cannot share the same health benefits, you are not considered next of kin and you are not granted the same securities as a heterosexual couple. How is this different than having someone sit in the back of the bus because of their skin color?
She goes on and on. You can read the column in full at or just pick up the March issue when it hits newstands.

 Activism looks good on you, girl. Let’s see some more of it.

What do you think of Miley’s marriage memo?
