GLAAD‘s getting all frothy and shit over NY Post‘s latest crack at gay American Jim McGreevey, pictured above.
In their screaming action alert, “NY Post Publishes Yet Another Gratuitous Vulgar Anti-Gay Cartoon,” the gay watch dogs reminded enraged readers,
This not the first time that the New York Post has provided space for Sean Delonas to perpetuate dehumanizing anti-gay stereotypes. Two days after the New Jersey Supreme Court ruled in favor of same-sex civil unions in October 2006, Delonas depicted a man carrying a sheep and wearing a veil in front of a marriage license window. On October 5, in the wake of the Mark Foley scandal, Delonas illustrated Jim McGreevey comforting Foley while a sheep lay in bed in the background.
That one really was unfair. It should have been a 17-year old Congressional page.
Now GLAAD’s calling all queers to call the NY Post and take them to task for their “tasteless anti-gay bigotry”. Of course it’s tasteless – it’s Rupert Murdoch‘s NY Post! That’s why people read it. Tasteless goes great with morning coffee.
