Democrats Think in Stereotypes

Imagine if an Obamacare Advocacy Group (i.e., liberal Democrats) put out an ad promoting Obamacare to blacks that featured black men and women eating fried chicken and watermelon while singing a hymn to Obamacare set to the tune of “Camptown Races.”

Imagine if an Obamacare Advocacy Group put out an ad promoting Obamacare to Hispanics that featured Hispanic men and women driving around in low-riders and picking lettuce while singing a hymn to Obamacare set to the tune of “La Cucaracha.”

Now, with those thoughts in mind, ponder this ad put together by an Obamacare advocacy group to promote Obamacare to Teh Gheys.

  1. You can tell they’re gays of the “gym bunny” flavor. How, you ask? Look at their torsos in relation to their legs: the pecs, lats, and biceps are disproportionately more developed than the thighs, which are more toned than muscled, and the calves are basically nonexistent. The overall effect is that the man seems rather spindly and top-heavy. Consistent with the stereotype that gay men hate doing squats in the gym. The fact that something so “homophobic” is being produced by a pro-Obama group is amusing to no end.

    You know, for a group that surely considers themselves “gay-friendly,” they sure seem to be playing the “vapid sex-crazed muscle twink” stereotype to the hilt. Are the liberal gays really this desperate for approval?

    “They like us! They really really like us!” The perpetual cry since Obama “evolved.” They can’t all be this shallow and stupid, can they?

  2. Sean….yes they can. And this ad proves it. All of the Obamacare ads pander to the lowest common denominator in whatever audience they are targeting. College students? Keg stands. Women? Hot men and free contraceptives. Blacks? Rap. It simply demonstrates the contempt Obamakins has for his supporters. After all, he is the smartest man in the room, right?

  3. With apologies to Bruce – talk about Don of Gay Apparel!

    PS – I’ll take the two in the middle to go, please. ;-)

  4. You’re welcome to them, Peter. Me, I’m looking for a model that’s a little less fey, with a bit more substance. These are nice for a joy ride, but nothing you could rely on for day-to-day use.

  5. The use of this particular stereotype is spot-on: gym rats, fag hag doing the singing (rather badly), sexualizing a Christmas standard (I thought fisting the stocking was a bit over-the-top, so to speak). Typical. As for whether the ad will be successful, well, gays will swallow pretty much anything.

    From my brushes with Gay Inc., Christmas seems to bring out the innuendo in them. Maybe it’s because I was raised Catholic, but I’ve always found it hypocritical (not to mention blasphemous) for self-professed “Christian” gays to engage in such behavior.

    Same goes for Easter, especially the “sexy Jesus” contest in San Francisco. Mocking people you demand respect and acceptance from. Hypocrisy, thy name is queen.

  7. Heya just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading correctly.
    I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
    I’ve tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same results.

    I can understand gay kollidge stoonts engaging in that sort of thing, on the assumption that Challenging Your Parents’ Values And Beliefs In A Tacky Way can be a normal and healthy rite-of-passage for young adults.

    Plus, you’ve got the “zeal of a new convert” factor in the case of kids who’ve just transitioned from a strict “fundie” religious upbringing to some flavor of Secular Freethought.

    But at some point, as you mature, you need to draw the line between finding a new identity for yourself, and just parroting other people’s anti-religious bigotry.

  9. @ Throbert McGee

    The Sexy Jesus is run by the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, the infamous club of drag queens who wear extravagant parodies of Catholic nun habits. And while many of the Jesus’ are younger fellows, the attendants run the gamut of ages.

    Of course, the Sisters would never dare to hold a “Sexy Muhammad” contest at Ramadan. Cowards.

  10. It’s called multiculturalism.

    It states that each separate identity group is entitled to political recognition by the state, and holds that each identity group is equal.

    Got that? It’s ‘Separate But Equal’. Democrats haven’t changed the policy they created 100 years ago. They’ve just found a better way to market it.

    The purpose is to establish government as the ‘Social Authority’ of the American culture. It’s an idea that flies in the face of the First Amendment. (Free people have no social superiors.)

  11. How pathetic because I would bet most gays who watch this will accept this as ‘cute’, ‘how fun’ and ‘I just love it!’….This is nothing more than a pandering and condescending ad if I ever saw one. We all know the gay ‘community’ is not at all represented by these prancing ‘men’ but the perpetrators of this stereotype ad and the “I just love it” crowd are too stupid to accept the fact when the world sees us as all one type we all lose.

  12. Benji… The crowd that loves this type of stereotyping seek acceptance at all costs. The define themselves through their sexuality first, everything else is secondary. Straight liberals love this type of stereotyping because it makes them feel comfortable. They don’t like minority people to be outside the box.

  13. ‘Gay’ is a political moment made up of people who are not necessarily all gay. That’s what’s causing all the confusion.

    Maneuvering for political position turns the gay community first into a cliche, then into a full blown stereotype.

    Comment by gastorgrab — December 24, 2013 @ 11:05 am - December 24, 2013

  14. So let me guess, this is not stereotyping per se, because it’s promoting a Democratic policy (LongLeggedMackDaddyCare)? Put these same guys in a news segment criticizing gay pride parades, and watch out for the outrage.

  15. Stereotyping isn’t necessarily unjustified; it’s one efficient way of organizing information according to observed pattern. The harm isn’t the existence of the stereotype but its application to every individual who supposedly fits within its (usually broad) confines.

    Straight liberals love this type of stereotyping because it makes them feel comfortable. They don’t like minority people to be outside the box.

    I agree. By viewing for example ‘gay men’ as a constituency rather than an aggregate of individuals (and the individual is the smallest, yet most important minority of them all), it allows those who would use such a group to be blissfully unaware (i.e. willfully ignorant) of the diversity of thought found within, thus enabling them to project what they like onto the group. It allows for relationships based upon the very thinnest of connective tissue (political agenda) w/out any responsibility or effort, all while feeling comfortably ‘open-minded’. Of course, there are gay men who will gladly seek out and take comfort in this kind of lazy, false sense of belonging — any sense of belonging — and will rush into the open arms of any who will claim to accept them, not caring that they’re merely being used.

  16. ..”They don’t like minority people to be outside the box.”

    Yes, the box they build to put us all inside. Imagine an ad showing most anyone posting on this site, professionally doing their job as a physician, a banker, a scientist, an attorney, a professor, a reporter, etc., and heaven forbid, not prancing around half naked in tights. Oh the horror!!!

  17. While I don’t generally like how homosexuals are portrayed in media, there are exceptions. I recently saw the movie Weekend starring Tom Cullen and Chris New and I recommend it.

    Comment by Ignatius — December 24, 2013 @ 12:51 pm - December 24, 2013

  18. This is how gay media presents gays, too. Roll through all the gay-made gay films of the last…25 years…or watch, if you have the stomach, LOGO TV, and you’ll find (9+ times out of ten) the same box of cartoon characters. At least this ad didn’t have drag queens.
