Wisc. Marriage Ban Ad Makes Us Sick


Our friends over at Good As You just sent us this advert urging voters to vote yes on the proposed anti-gay nuptial amendment.

It’s gross not only because it’s fueled by homo-hated, but it exploits children to spread a political message and then it portrays said children as easily confounded ninnies. Sure, children may not be as in tune as adults, but they’re hardly idiots. Sadly, such tactics definitely grab voter attention.

Maybe Fair Wisconsin can use some of Elton John‘s loot to make their own commercial.

      Ohh this is crazyness!! I saw where GoodAsYou covered this also…. and created the responses to these questions…. def had the opportunity to be EXTREMELY funny…. but definitely made some interesting points.
      this just makes me think of Ms. Phelps-Roper and her children wearing their “God Hates Fags” t-shirts…. I love how the religious wrong uses kids to demonize us. I uess I don’t need to invest in a costume for this halloween… I can just go as a fag…. that’ll scare the pants off of these kids…. grrrrr

      That’s horrible!

      I really hope that pro-gay rights groups fire back showing just how normal, healthy and common gay-parented families are… there should be ads showing gay couples together, them doing normal activities, etc. etc. etc. And yes, even with kids, just not exploitative like that crap – distorting reality without a shred of facts or statistics.

      What the fuck was that? Notice how the little blonde haired boy kept looking at the people behind the camera to make sure he was saying the right thing. They fed these little kids bullshit to try to make us look bad. WHAT THE FUCK!!! We should fight back saying “Look everybody straight homophobic people bullshit their children to lie for them on television to make people look bad” and then have a real gay family come in and even straight parents of gay children come in and say stuff too. That’s bullshit im sorry but if you use children to make your theory “look better” you should be shot. Family used to die off back then where it would just be mom and aunts raising the kids or fathers and uncles raising the kids. I want to slap the shit out of the parents who used their kids in that video.

      I did hear about that straight kid! That is pretty messed-up. Also, you guys may recall the straight Iraqi soldiers who tortured, raped, and photographed prisoners at Abu Graib a while back? Truth be told, straight people are to be blamed for the sickest, cruelest, and most bizarre crimes in the history of the world, and yet I am respectful enough not to yell “straight!” or “hetero!” when I see some fat chick holding some loser paralegal with a bad haircut walking down Bleeker St on a Friday night.

      These hetero’s make me so sick sometimes, fortunatly, they are not all bad.

      If they’d done their research, they would know that children have a much easier time embracing the notion of same sex marriage because they haven’t been taught to hate and fear it yet. The tragic thing is we get to watch on camera the indoctrination of hate fueled bigotry to innocent young children. You can see they are being fed these lines word for word off camera. They are being corrupted before our very eyes. This commercial really creeps me out. It’s sick.

      Fear not friend “Awful”, we don’t hate you in the slightest. We do on the other hand don’t feel great about being the target of en masse smear campaigns that play on the so called “family values” of our otherwise rational fellow citizens. Of course, this issue is more complicated than the above comments are indicating. But they’ve just been invalidated by pre-schoolers on their parent’s say so. You can understand at the very least hurt feelings.

      Nobody seems to have a problem when gay people trot children out to prove what great parents they are. Remember the White House Easter egg hunt? We are also told that children don’t need a mother or a father, and that a positive role model does just as well (i.e. teacher, postman, the checkout guy at the local grocery).

      Does anyone really believe that if gay marriage became legal that nothing else will change? Look at Massachusetts before you answer that question. Schools now feel justified in reading same-sex fairy tales to grade-schoolers. Who can blame little Mark and Jimmy if, after hearing about two kings in love, they began to view their buddy as a play boyfriend? This is the nightmare scenario that millions of families will face.

      We are continuously told that gay marriage will in no way affect religion. One might consider Catholic Charities. Unless they agreed to hand children over to gay couples they faced the revocation of their license to place at risk kids. No one seemed to concerned about protecting religious liberties in that case.

      We are facing an untried social experiment that involves the most vulnerable amongst us….our children. Without some definitive prove that gay marriage indeed does not harm society, why are we so hellbent on enacting it?

      Chakra – are you kidding me with this? Gays have always existed and always will – it is how God made us :) Just because we are more visible now does not mean this is a new phenomenon…it is not! What hurts the children is when they are made to feel less than other children or when they don’t have someone to love and nurture them. When they spend years in a government institution because gays are not allowed to adopt so they are denyed a loving nurturing home. What does it matter what gender the parents are? Denying rights to gay couples because of the children is just more rhetoric from fundamentalist who have not read every reliable study that shows that recognizing our relationship will only help our children feel more secure and safe. Your example about children’s books is ridiculous…if your kid reads Harry Potter is he going to magically become a wizard? Exposing children to gay literature at their level will NOT make them homosexual…just look at all of us “Gays” that were exposed to heterosexual literature of boys and girls kissing as children…we didn’t become straight now did we? What it does do though is teach them is that families and love come in all different forms. As a gay father raising two beautiful daughters I speak from experience on this issue. What basis do you have for your ideology besides the fundametalist dogma you have been fed?

      Do you know who is behind all of this? Adults that have not come to terms with the fact that they are gay themselves. They are usually raised in a tight nit family whom is extremly conservative. They were not allowed to speak out about things they believed in but what the parents told them it was good to believe in. Just like the parents of those intelligent children, that might grow up, come out of the closet and ask their parents what they were thinking when they had them audition for this hateful commercial! nough said my mouth is tired…come here wifey lets get to bed!

      Actually, I’m an agnostic and, in most cases, a liberal Democrat. Do you really think that only ‘rabid right wind fundamentalist’ disapprove of the the gay agenda? Why do you think that most of those marriage amendments pass by such large margins?

      We have no idea WHAT causes homosexuality. Many believe that they are born that way, but that is not entirely obvious, especially amongst lesbians. Still, I really don’t care if it genetic or not. What concerns me is when homosexuality if promoted in schools. While reading a gay fairy-tale might not make a child gay, it could certainly cause them to experiment. While that might be fine for your children, it’s not okay for mine!

      You people who are so fond of calling heterosexuals ‘breeders’ need to keep in mind that they are referring to their own parents as well. Until gay couples can produce children within the confines of their own relationships don’ expect ‘breeders’ tot ake their word on how best to raise their children

      I would just like to know how Children and schools became involved in a debate on this amendment? If you are really concerned that the “Gay Agenda” is going to infiltrate your child’s school, I would suggest home schooling. While you are at it you might at well get rid of your television, any media outlet, computer and any number of classic children’s stories which are said to have a gay undertone.

      You are obviously paranoid, and again where in this amendment does it suggest homosexual teachings be brought into the schools. No where, and for that matter there is nothing in place to stop a teacher from reading a gay fairytail in our schools now.

      I come from a very religious family. My mother and father do not necessarily understand and accept homosexuality, but they do understand and accept their two gay sons and our committments to our partners. With or without this amendment, Gay and Lesbian people will continue to live, work and worship in your community. By voting yes all you are accomplishing is denying good people to be recognized in their personal relationships. You twit!!

      Voting yes will not make the homosexual or your scary “Gay Agenda” go away. You will just remove my right to have a valid relationship recognized for it’s true value and love.

      Face up to facts: Most Americans do NOT want “gay marriage” per say to be legalized. It gets more iffy when you talk about “civil unions.” In fact, polls of homosexuals show that most of them aren’t asking for “Gay Marriage” under those terms. Being against gay marriage isn’t homophobic. Get over yourselves.

      What I have noticed more than anything while going through the postings on this site is the chip on the shoulders of gay people.

      Homosexual people are adament that they are born that way (or so quaintly put it, “God made us this way”), then seem to be in denial that homosexuality is a deviant genetic trait in humans. The “norm” for humans is heterosexuality, not homosexuality. Heterosexuality is a defining characteristic of our species and ensures that the species will be able to reproduce. It is the natural order of things. Like blindness, deafness, malformations, etc or other deviant genetic traits, homosexuality is not “bad” or “evil”. The difference seems to be you don’t see blind people calling sighted people “lookers” or deaf people calling those with hearing “listeners”. Gay people do have an agenda and they do attempt to advance that agenda through political action, just like other businesses and group seeking to advance their cause. To deny that is the truth is just stupid. Those gay people who have such a chip on their shoulder that they would call heterosexual people breeders are more in denial of their condition than they want to accept. The simple truth is that heterosexuals are the natural order of the humans species and homosexuals are the deviants, genetically speaking. All people are capable of terrible behaviour, both heterosexual and homosexual, but saying that a rapist is an example of all heteros or homos is just ignorant. A rapist is a rapist whether hetero or homo…deviant behavior is entirely different than deviant genetics.

      Gay people are trying to soften the discrimination by introducint gay friendly text books, etc into schools. Gay people realize that children are susceptible to indoctrination. When gay people try to indoctrinate children to believe that homosexuality is normal and acceptable everything is ok, but if a parent teaches that same child that homosexuality is deviant than the parent is so very terrible. Which is worse? Both are trying to teach a child their beliefs. The difference is that the gays are being subversive in their efforts to indoctrinate children. And the reason is they can’t manufacture children of their own to indoctrinate so they try to indoctrinate other’s children. It’s a kind of intellectual molestation. If you want to indoctrinate children, produce your own and teach them your values…leave my kids alone. The problem is gays have a serious problem propagating…so they cannabalize. It’s a parasitic attack on heterosexuals by a genetically deviant group who cannot reproduce naturally and seek to strengthen acceptance through any means possible.

      When gay people post to things like this, it seems that it is more style over substance. Quips, name calling and banter are the order of the day rather than real arguments or philosophical debates. Heterosexuals ARE the norm for our species and like it or not, that will never change. There will always be homosexuals, just like there will always be blind people and deaf people, but that doesn’t make them normal or “equal”. As a heterosexual person, I do not think homosexuals are “bad” or “evil” or even inferior…but they are not the same. And I, for one, am sick of hearing how bad heteros are and how homosexuality brings with it some sort of enlightenment that heteros just couldn’t possibly understand. It’s a sad self defense mechanism and shows that gay people have a much harder time accepting themselves than they really want to admit. I am not ashamed to be hetero and won’t be conned into thinking somehow I am missing out on something by not being gay. And, I am not secretly gay and afraid of my sexuality either as one of the posters mentions…another myth promoted by homosexuals to secretly cope and find acceptence.

      One of my favorite movies is the Bird Cage. While the whole movie seems to center around a gay couple trying to impress the neocon father of their son’s fiancee, the real message of the movie is that they accept who and what they are and quit trying to make others accept them. A truly intellingent gay person would understand that you can make people smile and be nice by pressuring them with laws and political correctness, but you will never really change their minds or how they think by doing so. Just be a person that another would want to be a friend and you will find friends, both gay and straight…and don’t worry about the ones that don’t want you as a friend…you wouldn’t want them either.
