From a Daily Show clip where they attempted to find out which state was the most aggressively anti-gay between Alabama and Mississippi. They paid a couple of actors to pretend to be a gay couple, dressed them up in typical redneck clothes, and put them in a few scenarios where they would put their “homosexual relationship” on display for the general public.
As it turned out, the general public doesn’t give a shit, and some members are actually incredibly supportive, despite the representing politicans from those states being absolutely sure gay people would never be accepted in their states, comparing them to other groups like “coloreds” that only recently became accepted.
this is absolutely disgusting and not okay in any way. anorexia is a disorder. not a costume. and definitely not something to be sexualized. to sign a petition to get the costume removed from the site, click here
plz reblog to signal boost
only 600 more signatures to go
100 more. thank you so much to everyone who reblogged and signed.
hi everyone. this still needs attention. im not really sure how petitions work and this isnt my petition but 10,000 was just a goal and apperently there are more signatures to be signed for the petiton. currently 5000 more. which is a lot i know, but i feel that if we spread this enough we can do it.
This costume is stupid!
Please spread the word. This costume is so dangerous.
Bisexuals find themselves erased in history. Many famous people―such as Marlene Dietrich, June Jordan, Freddie Mercury, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Walt Whitman―have been labeled as lesbian or gay for their same-sex relationships, yet their long-term relationships with different-sex partners are ignored or their importance minimized. This disrespects the truth of their lives for the sake of a binary conception of sexual orientation. It also makes it more difficult for bisexuals just coming out to find role models.
