Yet Another “Youth” Site Fights Gay Nups


A recent poll indicated that youth voters have been instrumental in the fight against California’s Proposition 8. Such a statement should lift progressive people’s spirits, but that’s just one side of the story.

Last month we passed along word about iProtect, a “hip,” youth-targeting website dedicated to regurgitating traditional anti-gay attacks. Well, iProtect’s not the only one working the barely legal angle.

A new group of guppies in the Sunshine State have launched What Is Prop 8, of which webmaster Kenny McNett says,

The reason why many people are not in favor of Proposition 8 is that they are not informed on how it may negatively impact their lives. We created whatisprop8.com to inform voters of the direct and indirect consequences of same-sex marriage.

Like iProtect, “What Is” relies primarily on tried-and-true half-truths and panic-ridden politics, i.e. “Children in public schools will have to be taught that same-sex marriage is just as good as traditional marriage.” Good heavens!
