Washington Post Accidentally Mistakes Argentinian Gays For Their Rich, Educated American Counterparts


In discussing the 140 gay weddings that have taken place so far in Argentina since the country legalized marriage equality, the Washington Post‘s Juan Forero unleashed this doozy: “Gay couples, she said, have spent as much as $25,000 on the big day, far outspending their heterosexual counterparts. As in the United States, gays in Argentina are relatively well-educated and upwardly mobile.” Score one for generalizations! GLAAD is so upset they’ve found a reason to use the word “hackeneyed”; we’re told via email the group is “reaching out to the Washington Post to discuss this article and the false and hackneyed content.”
