“Help keep straight couples from getting divorced and hating their children.”

The look on the little girls eyes while she gets hugged is pure gold!

Once we overturn DOMA and my husband and I are forced to divorce and become gay, I hope Melissa Harris Perry will fall madly in love with me. I figure she’ll have to divorce and become a lesbian too, right?

This is kinda dumb. It’s not funny or clever–rather pretty thunderingly obvious–and it’s not going to convince anyone on any side of the argument. Why this video has gotten ay traction today is a mystery to me. More Macklemore, less inane stuff like this.

At first watching it I thought it was real, then I started laughing towards the end.

How dumb do these people think we are.
Even most of the straight people don’t
agree with these anti-gay nuts.

Edwin, I think you’re wrong about that. The 48% of heterosexuals who would vote against us don’t have any particular reasons for it, frequently. That’s why the phrase “defense of marriage” has power.

I think this video will reach some people.

This video was thunderously dumb and dull, as obvious as a pimple on the forehead, as clunky as an old car. It got shared on numerous gay blogs, and it’s a complete mystery to me why.

There are those for whom parody will always be a mystery.


March 6th, 2013

I love parody. But parody is subtle and seductive–it should leave you wondering for a moment: “Are they serious?

This is no Jon Swift (RIP, Al Weisel) or Christwire. ” (cf: ; ).

When the performances are this over-the-top to begin with, it’s just mockery: parody is impossible.

Compare, for example, this classic from 2007:

Lighten up Chimaxx.

Why? How we deploy humor is as important as how we deploy our reasoned arguments.

Lighten up because there’s no harm in this humour. You think you can do better no one is stopping you.

Slouching Towards Kampala: Uganda’s Deadly Embrace of Hate

Paul Cameron’s World

In 2005, the Southern Poverty Law Center wrote that “[Paul] Cameron’s ‘science’ echoes Nazi Germany.” What the SPLC didn”t know was Cameron doesn’t just “echo” Nazi Germany. He quoted extensively from one of the Final Solution’s architects. This puts his fascination with quarantines, mandatory tattoos, and extermination being a “plausible idea” in a whole new and deeply disturbing light.
