Sophia Petrillo Addresses Marriage Equality

Thank you for being a friend, Sophia Petrillo (I couldn’t resist). Jezebel dug up this Golden Girls clip wherein Estelle Getty, the brazen, spicy Italian sausage of an elderly mother proves wise beyond her years in the late ’80s and early ’90s, when the show was on-air.

When Blanche’s gay brother announces his intention to marry his partner, Blanche objects:

Sophia then asks Blanche why she married her (late) husband, George.

PREACH. Let’s just hope the Golden Gavels on the Supreme Court manage to speak half as reasonably on the issue.
