#TBT - 'Homosexuality: DEATHSTYLE'

In keeping with the spirit of "Throwback Thursday," I thought I would post about something from way back in the day which is not necessarily a picture of myself per se, but a picture of myself and other lgbts as some folks see us. I've posted it before I figure why not post it again.

It's an ugly thing but very very necessary.

This 1986 comic was created by a man named Dick Hafer and it is a vile representation of some of the most evil anti-gay lies out there.

This is for the many young folks who don't remember what it was like in the 1980s when the AIDS crisis was in full bloom, ignorance was all around and Paul Cameron was a credible name.

It is a representation of how far we have come and how far we have to go. You will recognize how some of the same arguments are still being used, although not as explicitly.

You can click on the pictures to get a better view of the pages - more are at the bottom (even though I don't think it's work safe). And if you want to see the entire comic (God help you) go here. The webpage featuring this comic is not anti-gay. It's a site that looks at "problem-based comics" from the past.

"Imagine for a moment you've only met one black person. His name is Chris. One day you spend three straight hours asking him questions about his sex life. Later, after Chris has punched you, you write down what he said and call it, 'The Black Truths About All Black' People. That book would be more accurate and less offensive than 'Homosexuality: Legitimate, Alternate Deathstyle.'" - Seanbaby
