Ontario PC Party Distributes Misleading Homophobic Flyer
The Ontario Progressive Conservative Party has put for a flyer that can only be discribed as homophobic and misrepresentative just days before the provincial election. Please share the truth with as many people as possible.
Want to know the truth behind this Flyer rather than the lies/misrepresentation the Progressive Conservatives have put forth?… See below.
1) The quote at the top of the attack ad is from a September 23, 2011 CTV article entitled “McGuinty accused of keeping parents in dark on sex-ed” (see link below). The (non-verbatim) quote in the ad in unattributed to its speaker - Tim Hudak.
2) The attack ad says that on page 19, there is a section on “Cross-dressing for six year-olds”. Page 19 in the document is actually a list of “Significant International LGBTQ Individuals” (see link at end of post for full “Challenging Homophobia and Heterosexism” document)
3) The attack is misleading and disingenuous when it refers to the “kissing booth” on page 143. The flyer misleads you into a) thinking this is for children, and b) thinking this is an actual “kissing booth”. The program is actually for highschool students, and the “kisses” referred to in the document are stamps and chocolate kisses.
4) The attack ad is once again misleading and disingenuous, this time when it references the “gender-bending” on page 44. The line the attack ad quotes is from a section entitled “Pink Versus Blue” – Challenging Gender Stereotypes” and discusses typical gender defined roles and breaking gender barriers. The very next line of the document give examples of “gender-bending” as being a female hockey player or a male teacher who likes to cook or sew.
For Hudak to defend this is deplorable.
