NOM Still Trolling Canada, Contradicting Self For Anti-LGBT Horror Stories

The National Organization for Marriage continues their Canadian hunt for LGBT-related horror stories by focusing on the tale of a Vancouver public school district anti-bullying program that listed CheckHimOut.ca as a student resource. CheckHimOut.ca has info on sexual, mental and social gay health and also a sexually-explicitly HIV PSA (NSFW) of two dudes boning in the shower and dining room. But while NOM continues pushing their “anti-bullying programs will expose our kids to buttsecks” meme, they also disingenuously act as if linking to a website equals an implicit promotion of all its content—something Maggie Gallagher herself denied just two days ago in a post entitled “A Link Is Not An Endorsement.”

      I really think Ms. Woo’s light touch brought something to this, making the PSA a little bearable.

      It figures that NOM got the lightest Asian it could possibly find. Racist organizations like NOM are all about image-making.

      @Malwyn: what’s more sadder is that she doesn’t realize she’s just a pawn for NOM

      Sophia Woo is a homophobe. Sophia Woo is notoriously homophobic.

      Sophia Woo just got elected to a three year term, as a Vancouver School Trustee on November 19th. She is one of three NPA party members, a minority on the nine-member school board.

      I see right-wing extremists are helping fund Canadian elections as well.

      @alison: There’s no such thing as a right-wing extremist. All right-wingers are extremist.
