What happened to Fake Gay News?
February 6, 2008 Comments Off on What happened to Fake Gay News?
Fake Gay News used to be an entertaining blog which I had in my feed reader for those moments one needs a bit of a laugh. I had already been thinking that it’s been a while since I read an article on that blog.
So today I had a look in my feedreader and saw that the blog had last been updated in May last year. Hoping that the RSS feed was broken, I went to the site hoping to re-subscribe, but to my surprise fakegaynews.com points to 365gay.com which isn’t funny! It’s boring and serious, full of articles on HIV, gay rights violations around the world… nah!
But for those who love/loved Fake Gay News… on article that I’ve found back in some archives:
“A group of conservative Christian meteorologists today announced plans to eliminate rainbows from the earth’s atmosphere. At a press conference following a White House luncheon with President Bush, lead scientist Bret Banger told reporters that his organization, Climatologists For Christ, had declared open season on the multi-coloured spectrums of light as part of their commitment to eradicating “the homosexual lifestyle and all weather patterns that reflect it.”
“The rainbow flag was adopted by gay rights activists to represent diversity in the gay community during the early 1980s, when gays and lesbians were too busy battling the Reagan Administration’s homophobia and discriminatory AIDS policies to come with a better idea.
“Because rainbows are composed of curved spectrums of light that become visible only when the sun’s light passes through prism-like raindrops during a rain shower, Climatologists for Christ are focusing their efforts on ending all forms of rain.
“When reporters questioned how the earth would survive without rainfall, Banger fired back, “The love of God will keep us moist!”
“In a show of support, President Bush has introduced the Heterosexual Hemispheres Act, which would ban the use of rainbow flags, the chasing of rainbows, as well as the possibility of it ever raining men.
“The Weather Girls could not be reached for comment.”
I’ll miss this…
