Seeing as discussion has turned to film and TV and the extent to which they represent or misrepresent various cultural or anthropological issues, I thought that “this fictional piece”:http://swiftreport.blogs.com/news/2005/06/gay_coloring_as.html on the proposed limitation of colours with which kids could draw to be quite interesting. What is fascinating is the near-believability of the article and the ensuing comments. What does it say about USAnian (or even North American) society that to some, the article is quite plausible in that it could actually happen but that to others, it is so ludicrous that the satire is obvious?
Now . . .are the comments for real? I’m not sure. Given that some of them refer to a coming war against those who carry a “homosexual agenda and others actually wish death upon all queers, part of me really hopes that they are not.
UPDATE: I forgot to mention that I found the link to this article “here”:http://liliane.keenspace.com/.
