It’s always fun when we rediscover the smart ones are the pro-equality ones.
The National Organization “for” Marriage (NOM) posted a cartoon by Zach Weiner today on their blog. The cartoon was hotlinked from a site called Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal. This is his cartoon:
What happened next is brilliant. Zach Weiner, who posted the comic, realized his work was completely misinterpreted as an anti-gay advertisement by the Hate Group. So he changed the direction of the link that NOM was using…so NOM’s blog now has this up in the comic’s place (it’s been screen-capped, as once they figure out what’s happened, they will undoubtedly fix it):
Check out Zach’s account of how it all happened here. It’s moments like this that it makes me glad to know so many nerds.
“There seems to be this idea out there that action through the Internet has no important effect. Even people I really respect, like Jon Stewart, promote this idea. Well, today, I probably got a message of equality to over 100,000 people, among them members of the other side. This generation fights in a new way, but we fight just as hard.”
Great work Zach! Thanks for Talking About Equality in one of the most creative ways we can imagine!
