gays are still evil

i live in CT and surround myself with intelligent people so i often forget that the world is still full of homophobes, remembering only every so often when some backward up-continent country makes the news by jailing homosexuals (i'm talking to you uganda).

and then i saw this on Dlisted:

Turns out a Harps in Arkansas needed to cover an Us mag headlining elton, his partner and their new baby with a 'family shield' to protect the cheeeldren from the obscenity that is same-gendered love. or whatever that is. cos it's different to the love shared by those bastions of heteronormativity, bragelina or tom-kat.

here's what was on the cover:

i typed in 'satan evil blood death murder' for this. i was disappointed with the selection.

ha ha ha, no only kidding. it was way worse:

a happy, healthy, well-dressed couple holding a CUTE, SLEEPING BABY!!!!! these two embodiments of evil have been together since 1993.

'scared scream fear run cry'

read what michael k has to say about it and a statement by Harps here or look at some more pictures of vile bliss here.

if you read my blog i'm going to assume that you're a human of Some Brain. So let's pause together for a moment and pat ourselves on the backs for not being stupid people.

What is really pornographic is that they are censoring love.

the ridiculousness of it made me snigger a bit and then i read about that ugandan that got between to death this week for his sexual orientation. no laughing matter this homophobia.
