Stephen Harper and the Gays: The Video
One of my straight friends asked me today why I am so worried about a Harper majority. And why I keep beating my battered drum for a united left.
When if I played the NDP against the Liberals or vice-versa, I'd have a lot more wicked fun, and be a lot more popular.
And my answer was I haven't the slightest shadow of a doubt that a centre-left united is the only sure way to save the country I love. Which isn't perfect. How could it be when stuff like this keeps happening again and again?
But I am equally sure that if if Stephen Harper ever got a majority it would be much much WORSE. For all decent Canadians...but especially for this country's gay people.
Because the religious fanatics in his evil government would make homophobia legal, strangle gay rights, terrorize gay kids by telling them God wants them killed. And although many Canadians don't realize it, Stephen Harper is the Homophobe in Chief.
I'd like to explain that by launching a campaign like this one.
Because it's such a brilliant idea. Such a good way to show support for our beautiful sisters. Such an awesome way to remind people of the twisted horror of Stephen Harper.
But unfortunately all I can sew is a sail or a button. And even if I made some t-shirts nobody would buy them.
Because that's what being marginalized means eh?
So I made a video instead....
I know it's not very good. But I'll get better.
And as for the t-shirt....
Oh well...I guess I'll just have to keep wearing this one....
Which may not be as classy as the women's one. But it is my message to Stephen Harper. And it's really easy to make eh?
It also comes with the promise that I will NEVER stop beating my drum for a united left to build a kinder, gentler, better Canada.
And that even if those filthy homophobic, anti-women, racist Cons do get a majority.
I am not afraid of them.
And I will fight them FOREVER...
