Bunnies and chicks are our Peeps?
This weekend's New York Times Magazine cover story will be on the topic of gay animals, with a cover that looks like this:
These Easter Bunnies Are Gay [Towle]
Which is great. Just great. I mean the last thing we need to be doing is putting in the minds of the American public the idea of a furry queer thing that sneaks into Christian children's rooms at night and lures them with rainbow-hued candy! [::le sigh::]
Though actually, come to think of it, we probably shouldn't worry so much about a "Homosexual Easter Bunny Out To Recruit Your Kids!" meme. After all, the number of social conservatives who'd admit there could be any science behind this whole gay thing is surely much smaller than those who believe a particularly prolific hopper could hop the globe in one night so as to stuff Cadbury-branded products into a Target-bought basket. So yea: Carry on, NYT!
