GLAAD Wants To Erase NY Post’s “Anti-Gay Stereotypes”

mcgmsj1.jpg
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.

    Yeah, GLAAD, good luck witchaself.

    GLAAD is a fucking joke. The cartoon is funny. That’s all there is to it. Why make a big deal out of it? We have to be able to laugh at ourselves. I think most of our community understands that. When will GLAAD realize that too? GLAAD does not represent me nor any of my gay friends. They just need to knock that shit off because it makes us all look bad.

    ahhh… once again GLAAD is being completely counterproductive.

    i thought the cartoon was funny, considering how BOTH McGreevys have been acting… they BOTH seem like spoiled beauty queen pageant bitches out for the title of “worst victim ever, 2006-2007”.

    i thought the cartoon was well thought out…….. ALTHOUGH, give it a couple of days and see if beauty contestants protest the stereotypical portrayal of beauty queens in cartoons.

    Thanx GLAAD. “Gratuitous Vulgar Anti-Gay Cartoon” is the perfect description of this.

    First it’s “funny” cartoons and next it’s the gas chamber. Wake up foollios and smell the hate. Fuck that shit rag and Rupert Murdoch!!!! All gay people buy guns NOW!

    I think a gay New Jerseyan was “marrying” a sheep, too. Thing is, if they were both sheep (as opposed to rams) it was interspecial heterosex, so it wasn’t homophobic.

    Point is, trying to parse out a Delonas cartoon is ridiculous because the cartoons are ridiculous, like the Post itself. Can’t GLAAD find any worthier opponents? I honestly don’t thin anyone looking at something this stupid on its face is going to be influenced one way or another on gay rights issues.

    I’m still waiting for GLAAD to come up with something genuinely useful to do with itself. Of course, I could die from all that waiting.

    Remind me why i am supposed to get upset about a gay politician in love with an ovine. i’m from pennsyltucky myself, and i say if its consensual and mutually satisfying, who am i to judge??

    hoping it’s a boy sheep though, otherwise EWE!

  • UndercoverPants

    No, it’s not the horrifically offensive awful tragedy GLAAD makes it out to be, but to call it funny? I don’t think Sean Delonas deserves any credit for “funny”. He’s actually sort of a hack. Which brings us back to: The Post. Hel-LO?

  • jenfickle

    Considering GLAAD has had zero success getting the Post to do anything in the past, you’d think that they’d try to mix it up a bit. But no. Same old approach, same non-existent results. Way to (not) change hearts and minds, GLAAD!
