Hollywood TV host Ellen DeGeneres has urged people to support the fight to keep the U.S. state's gay marriage laws active. DeGeneres, who married Hollywood actress Portia De Rossi in August after gay marriages were legalised in May 2008, has raised her voice against the Proposition 8 bill - a high-level state vote in the upcoming November elections to make same-sex marriages constitutionally illegal in California, reports Contactmusic. The 'ED TV' actress has stated in her official blog that Proposition 8 is confusing and should be ignored. She says: "There's a California Proposition on the ballot that's a little confusing. It's Proposition 8. It's called, "The California Marriage Protection Act" - but don't let the name fool you. It's not protecting anyone's marriage. Not yours. Not mine. "The wording of Prop 8 is tricky. It's like if someone asked you, "You don't want dessert, right?" But you do want dessert so you say, "Yes," which really means you don't want dessert. And if you say, "No," which means you do want dessert - it sounds like you don't. Either way, you don't get what you want. See - confusing. Just like Prop. 8. "So, in case I haven't made myself clear, I'm FOR gay marriage. And in order to protect that right - please VOTE NO on Proposition 8. And now that you're informed, spread the word. I'm begging you. I can't return the wedding gifts - I love my new toaster."Source: ANISPH << The Seven Worst Habits of Workaholics Busted!
