2012 election results legalized gay marriage in Maine, Maryland, Washington and Minnesota, but plenty of states still don't allow same-sex couples to wed.

For those states, the gay men of College Humor have an ultimatum: Legalize it, or they will have no choice but to marry the crap out of your girlfriends instead.

Look at them. You know they could pull it off.

Aziz Ansari went off on an epic rant this week during a Jimmy Kimmel Live appearance.

The Parks and Recreation star first expressed his support for gay marriage ("Why is anyone against gay marriage? You know you're on the wrong side of things..."); then went off about how he thinks of civil rights progress during pumps of interracial sex; and concluded by delving into the Chick-fil-A controversy.

His main takeaway from that scandal? There's a lot of "inequality in the quality of the chicken sandwiches" around the nation - and no one would care if this were Long John Silver's...
