MUST READ – Takes On The American Family Association Anti-Gay Hate Group

The American Family Association aren’t just a recognized hate group, they’re cartoon villains that escaped into the real world. They’re driven by hate, choose actual comics characters as their enemies and still fail humiliatingly and publicly. They think of themselves as righteous crusaders, because they’re exactly the sort of assholes who still use the word “crusade,” but they’re really Gargamel from the Smurfs: fighting ridiculously soft fictional targets just because they’re the same gender and happy together, and still managing to lose……
The AFA’s entire strategy is whining louder than everyone else. This has worked for many groups for decades, because before now you needed something seriously wrong with your life to write letters to corporations as a hobby. A group of lonely, hateful people who could be relied upon to say what they thought was actually a valuable resource. But modern technology is destroying that advantage. Now everybody can say what they think, and they do. It turns out that all the people who used to be too busy to get involved in letter-writing campaigns were too busy not being assholes.
