What the hell is going on in ADF's confusing new attempt at a meme?

by Jeremy Hooper

Check out this new Alliance Defending Freedom social media graphic, which I found on the National Organization For Marriage's Facebook page:

Can someone please explain to me what they're trying to say? At first glance, it looks like the gay men win, since they are on the weighted side. But I guess they're trying to say that our "win" in this supposed game is "false"? Or something?

And what's with the little stick figure looking up at the opposite sex couple? Why'd the pants and the dress wearer kick the little munchkin from their perch? The gay dudes seem happy, content, and minding their own business over on their side of the scale, so the image doesn't make it seem like the kid's longing look is on them. It just looks like the pink and blue stick figures didn't have room for the little guy? Or maybe he just fell? Or perhaps he went down to hunt for the logic that is missing from this graphic?

The whole thing is a mess. But then again, so are all of the ADF's arguments against us, which is why they keep losing in court. In that regard, I guess this is actually the perfect graphic for this organization.
