Your country recently passed a law to make gay marriage legal, but you're vehemently opposed. Politically it's out of your hands now, and socially you're becoming more and more the minority with your opinion on the issue, but you still feel that you need to do something to show your opposition to the decision. Do you...
- Write a strongly worded letter to your member of parliament, priest, and editor of the local newspaper?
- Threaten to boycott any organisation that seems to be in support of gay marriage? or
- Get together a group of your buff, good looking friends, hike up to a mountain top somewhere with a distinct "Sound Of Music" feel to it, strip down until all you're wearing is a teeny weeny little pair of pink shorts, and then climb all over each other in an attempt to hang an anti gay marriage flag from a rather phallic wooden pole?
That's right, a group of young French men were so outraged at the marriage equality law being passed back in May that they decided the best way to protest this grievous miscarriage of justice was to re-enact Brokeback Mountain ... if Brokeback Mountain was set in France and had a bunch of pink short-short clad extras frolicking around in the background.
Oh homophobic ideals and irrational fear, I wish I knew how to quit you.
Sorry dudes, but I think you might have missed your mark on this one.
