There's a storm gathering.
And my second husband has spoken about it.
He has parodied it.
Because that is how he does things.
Apparently some people don't get that he is a satirist. A really good one. Or maybe I just have my liberal goggles on when I look at him. Rrowr! He looks very good to moi.
There are lots of other people who've done parodies of the storm ad.
Like this, I really love it, don't you? or this, or even this!
And a bunch who've commented on the whole deal.
Human Rights Campaign has a great website that talks about this. It also has material here which uncovers the lies of NOM.
Rachel Maddow did a couple of pieces on the ad; they are combined in one clip at youtube. But it looks like youtube is pulling a lot of these videos at NOM's request, so you might need to go to Maddow's site. It's kind of tough to search, though, so check the one clip link I provide above first.
Huffington Post has a ton of stuff about the issue and Stephen's parody here. There are links to blogs, comments, and - yes! - another parody, entitled A Shitstorm of Intolerance.
Come back tomorrow and I'll talk about why it really bothers me that groups like NOM exist.
Meanwhile, I'll bet you're thinking "FF, this is a total ripoff. I clicked on this post from someone's blogroll because I thought I'd get to see Lena Horne singing Stormy Weather."
I hate to disappoint you, my darlings. Here's Lena.
I'm going to scroll back up and look at Stephen some more. He is particularly adorable in that shot.
