Every Glitter-bombing From Now On Should Include A Ski-Lift

Ever since the failed glitter-bombing of rabidly homophobic GOP presidential candidate Michele Bachmann, Minnesota gay activists have been trying to pull off the perfect sparkle shower on a deserving anti-gay target. This weekend they finally succeeded.

While the more recent Minnesota glitter bombings have involved barbarians and a Marcus Bachmann look-alike, this weekend activists used the Minnesota State Fair skylift to shower unicorn sugar upon Minnesota for Marriage (M4M), an organizer behind the state’s proposed constitutional ban on marriage equality.

Apparently the (un)fair organizers allowed M4M to have a booth while denying the pro-LGBT Minnesotans United for All Families a booth as well. So while a judicious aerial glitter-bombing is always welcome, we hope the ground forces start pressuring the State Fair to allow equality supporters in the fairgrounds as well.

      OK, it’s official: I’m joining Marcus Bachmann’s clinic in the hope that I can rid myself of any and all homosexual tendencies, because I do NOT want to be associated with anyone who thinks it’s appropriate to make a total fool of themself by throwing sparkles onto unsuspecting bystanders. The irony is, knowing gay people as I do, if someone who is anti-gay marriage committed a similat act against you, you’d have the cops on their ass for comitting a “hate” crime. So, so fucking sad. Time to grow up, girls.

      I don’t think it’s very nice to throw stuff on people. Seriously.

      “Apparently the (un)fair organizers allowed M4M to have a booth while denying the pro-LGBT Minnesotans United for All Families a booth as well.”

      ^ But considering that LGBT supporters are not getting a level playing field to present our position on, I say throw anti gay-marriage folks to the glitter terrorists. There are worst things than having someone get sparkles on you.
