Photographing Gay Pride Is The Radical-Right’s Prurient Pursuit
I had to laugh at today’s email from anti-LGBT Illinois Family Institute because it is so emblematic of the radical-right. Folks on the radical-right express disgust at gays and, especially, transgender and genderqueer people, yet they can’t resist posting whole photo albums of same. From IFI’s email, which is all about Chicago Pride:
There seems to be only one thing that the radical-right loves more than to be morally offended, and that is taking and posting pictures of people they find morally “offensive” or “disturbing”.
Two of the webpages that IFI links to above prominently post this message:
WARNING: Offensive Images Inappropriate for Children
Another webpage they recommend to their readers — this one about Boston Pride — states:
CAUTION: SOME OF THE PHOTOS BELOW MAY BE DISTURBING
Offensive! Inappropriate for children! Disturbing! But apparently too delicious for the radical-right not to look.
