The Supreme Court takes up gay marriage this week. Utterly incapable of understanding or relaying nuance, mainstream media continue with their myopic portrayal of all this as a battle between the goodies and the baddies. Here, sweet, sad gays who just want to express their love are pitted against evil meanie Rightwing fundamentalists skewering gays and their children for breakfast.
This picture erases the complicated matter of what will happen if the gays win or lose. We're screwed either way, no matter the outcome.
