"You all may know that I've recently teamed up with J.C. Penney. Very excited about that, not only because I think it's a great store but because I get a great employee discount, and I could use some new T-shirts. So, I'm happy about it, and J.C. Penney is happy about it, but there is a group called One Million Moms that is not happy about it… This organization does not think I should be the spokesperson because I'm gay. So for those of you who are just tuning in for the first time, it's true. I'm gay. I hope you were sitting down. I hate to break it to you this way."—Ellen DeGeneres, on her show, Feb. 7.

"The reason we're not rushing to get married is because I don't feel appropriate taking advantage of a right that's denied to my best friends. That's why we've been so hesitant. Dax and I have talked about it a lot, and this issue is very important to both of us. We're just standing up for what we believe in. Period.

Listen, we're on your side. I recently tweeted about this embarrassing poster that shows how many states where you can marry your same-sex significant other and how many more states where you can marry your cousin. It's fucking ridiculous."—Actress Kristen Bell to Queerty.com, Feb. 20.

"Many parents are abandoning the Girl Scouts because they promote homosexual lifestyles. In fact, the Girl Scouts education seminar girls are directed to study the example of role models. Of the fifty role models listed, only three have a briefly-mentioned religious background — all the rest are feminists, lesbians, or Communists."—Indiana State Rep. Bob Morris in a letter to fellow lawmakers, published in the South Bend Tribune, Feb. 21.

"I've been saving my clothes for her since before she was born. I was like, I'll bet you anything I'll have a daughter, and she'll be a really cool butch lesbian and be so above clothes, and I got a very clothes-obsessed child. So if she's a lesbian, she's a lipstick lesbian. She doesn't like anything avant-garde at all. She likes anything that's pretty, pretty, pretty or has a bow or a ruffle or is pink."—Actress Gwyneth Paltrow on her daughter Apple to Harper's Bazaar, March issue.

"Whenever someone opposes [marriage equality], I always counsel: you never know. You never know when it will be your child or your grandchild. And you will eat your words."—Former Washington state Rep. Betty Sue Morris, to The New York Times, Feb. 6.
