Village of the NOMmed: B/c why shouldn't a 'values' group liken tolerant children to damned zombies?

by Jeremy Hooper

Is teaching basic LGBT tolerance/acceptance/respect to children akin to some "Village of the Damned"-like scenario? It is if you believe the National Organization For Marriage's latest fundraising email.

Playing off a of a snarky Queerty post that attempted to make a point about common far-right fears by admitting that we on the side of non-discrimination would in fact like children to know about LGBT people's benign placement in this world (duh!), the NOM crew is running this descriptive graphic to detail the gay community's supposed wants:

In case you're not familiar with the Damned movies (which are based on the novel The Midwich Cuckoos by John Wyndham): The plot revolves around women of a certain village who all get mysteriously pregnant at the same time, before eventually giving birth on the same day to a crop of less-than-human children. Conscience-less children with freaky powers that they proceed to use to wreak all kinds of havoc and even death on their village. Children who are eventually destroyed with a bomb, since that is seen as the only way to stop their evil ways.

That's how NOM sees us and our supportive children? That's what NOM thinks we want to cultivate? That's the image that comes to their mind? Or worse still: It's seriously the image they hope will stick in other people's noggins?

What next, NOM: Gonna suggest Don't Ask Don't Tell repeal is really just a stealthy way for us to stitch together a Human Centipede out of U.S. soldiers?
