Whoa. FCKH8 Actually Made An Educational Video About MN’s 2012 Marriage Ban??

The FCKH8 campaign made a name for itself by getting kids to drop F-bombs in an attempt to sell t-shirts and raise awareness about anti-gay politics. This time, they’ve shamelessly pimped out straight guys in briefs and spastic MTV aesthetics to educate folks about how to respond to typical anti-marriage equality arguments you will hear in the Minnesota marriage battle over religion, “real” marriage, and the “unnaturalness” of gay sex. Are you listening, NOM and David Tyree?

    Love it! Should give Maggie a kidney stone.

  • Kamuriie

    This video was really annoying. The music, editing and dialogue clash, and damage the message.

  • greenmusic23f

    I love it!

  • jon

    wow pretty colors

  • Chris

    @Kamuriie: I second that. More like ADD than equality.

  • McGullen

    Great video!

  • Armand

    Embarrassing.

    The demographics this video is directed at are the following:

    1) ADHD people
    2) Age 15-21 (or until one grows up and puts childish things away)
    3) Foul mouthed hipsters
    4) Faux LGBT “activists”
    5) Pedophiles (SEE: end of video)

    @Armand: Here we go again with people hating those who support us -.-

  • AFruit4Thought

    Who doesn’t love 90’s colors?! Makes me think of Power Rangers, color-changing t-shirts, and equal rights.

  • Armand

    @Sebizzar: Your straw man is pathetic.

    I’m offering constructive criticism and practicing free speech.

    Try to be more open minded next time, will you?

  • Sebizzar

    @Armand: Uh, i am open minded. And i don’t have a straw :P

  • Sebizzar

    @AFruit4Thought: LoL it’s supposed to be 80s!

  • 12345deviant

    i love those FUCKING love her gloves

  • Roman

    Awesome! If you’re against this video, well, then stop watching it.

  • Daez

    @Armand: Three words: GET OVER YOURSELF! Jesus, if you are an example of what it is to be a gay conformist I’m really glad I’m not one.

  • AedanRoberts

    I was initially like “ugh this is hard to watch”. Then it got really good and I started enjoying it.

    Then they had those two under-age boys kiss. And once again I was like “oh dear”. Honestly? They only needed to say “if we grow up to be gay we want the ability to get married” while looking like two buddies. The kiss was inappropriate. Sorry.

  • McGullen

    @Sebizzar: Yeah, seriously. Those are not 90s clothes!

  • AFruit4Thought

    @Sebizzar: Haha. Oops. I was born at the tail-end of the 80’s. The early 90’s and the late 80’s get all mixed up in my mind. Probably because I was wearing hand-me-downs from the 80’s.

  • Armand

    @Daez: Girl! Get a grip over your censorship glitter baton.

    And don’t forget to breath.

    Lets see, as national polls clearly indicate, younger sets of Americans overwhelmingly support gay rights including marriage rights. And dying off at a faster rate than the growing rate of young Americans eligible to vote, the “too old” to change won’t be voting in that many more elections.

    And here is a group that creates video promotions supporting gay civil and marriage rights targeting the growing numbers of newer first/second or soon to be first time voters.

    Good job FCKH8! I love your enthusiasm, the artistic nature, and the “in your face” FU to haters and bigots. BRAVO!!!

  • Mike in Asheville

    @Armand: I call bullshit Sebizarr!

    Constructive criticism, really?

    1) ADHD people : WRONG: that’s it, make fun a folks who suffer from ADHD. But ADHD folks are not the target for this video. Obviously, it is too obvious for you!

    2) Age 15-21 (or until one grows up and puts childish things away) : WRONG: You stay young by being young. Are you soooo old you have forgotten the fun of youth, full of revolt, full of ideas, full youthfully getting involved. Old people sure forget so easily the adventures of their youth; while the young-at-heart cheer youth on?

    3) Foul mouthed hipsters : WRONG: Its called entertainment. SNL regularly performs skits with the very same attitude (just beeps instead of fuck). But, more importantly, why shouldn’t these young activists show the anger in the face of the angry attacks of “foul mouthed” bigots. Rick Santorum calls us ALL child molesting dog fucking shit eaters. Well fuck him and fuck his H8.

    4) Faux LGBT “activists” : WRONG: how are they “faux”? There is nothing fake there: they see and hear hateful bigotry against themselves and their friends. This is grassroots at its finest.

    5) Pedophiles (SEE: end of video) : AND WRONG WRONG WRONG : So you are saying that because Catholic priests and others assault and molest/rape children, two teen boys can’t kiss?

    Sebizarr, be mad at those that have created the antisocial anti-American fascism of being forced to live our lives in closets for centuries; don’t go all ape-shit about those who stand up, out and loud, can call bullshit of hate, FCK H8!

  • Sebizzar

    @Mike in Asheville: You replied to Armand, but you’re saying me name? I wasn’t the one hating on this.

  • Sebizzar

    @AFruit4Thought: Haha yeah they’re pretty similar, i just pay too much attention to the fashion/trends from each decade lol
