Something guaranteed to piss you off - The sequel

Months ago, I wrote a post bringing attention to a repulsive anti-gay comic book that masqueraded as correct information regarding the lgbt community.

It was a 1986 comic was created by a man named Dick Hafer.

Well the site which featured the comic book has found yet another one by Hafer and it's just as nasty, probably more repulsive. It was created just as AIDS came on the scene. Notice how the work of discredited researcher Paul Cameron is cited:







The webpage featuring this comic is not anti-gay. It's a site that looks at "problem-based comics" from the past.

But it is still an excellent look at the past of anti-gay activism and we must ask ourselves (yet again) are the messages we get from the religious right today really any different from the ones Hafer threw out?

Wow.
Just...I'm speechless.
I'm glad I managed to NOT see that in 1986, when I was still in a haze clinical depression that tended to be heightened whenever read or heard crap like that. I thought that Chick tract on pre-marital sex was bad enough. (It was called "That Crazy Guy!" I found it lying in a kitchen drawer when I was 17. I have no idea how it got their-my family weren't batshit fundies.)
This thing-it's almost surreal. I mean, the most rabid homophobic FICTIONAL characters I've seen in movies and on tv don't come close to the real thing.

Dick Hafer, or Paul Cameron? Geesh that stuff is awful.

Did you notice that they mentioned Marion Barry as a "friend to the sodomites"? Suddenly I have a new found respect for the man.

Ugh. Based on his recent behavior, you might want to rethink that. LOL

And that's not even half the comic. They left out a bunch of pages about so-called "gay cures", the "history of homosexuality", pro-gay churches, etc.
