Traditional Values Coalition
Well, this comic isn't directed at queers at all. I think it's one of the few comics out there specifically created for het-folk to scare them into voting GOP/anti-gay/anti-trans. But I did want to include it here because I know that there are lots of progressively-minded hets who read this site who might not be aware of just how crazy the Religious Right really is.
This comic was created by the Traditional Values Coalition, one of the largest anti-gay, anti-abortion, anti-everything groups out there to rally folks against the ENDA (Employment NonDiscrimination Act), of course, with lies and epithets. Besides the facts that the ENDA doesn't require new bathrooms to be made and doesn't even apply to small businesses, it's really a piece of legislation with a good intent - to stop large businesses from firing gays, lesbians, bisexuals, and transgender people for no reason but their sexuality or gender.
But this comic makes it so obvious that their lobbying has nothing to do with values and everything to do with hate and fear.
So whenever you hear someone on TV talking about the "homosexual agenda" and the "vast homosexual conspiracy", remember that they also draw stupid comics like this one and think that it makes them morally superior.
