Herp Derp; Fox News Runs Same-Sex Kiss Above “Traditional Gender Roles” Op-Ed
You know it’s going to be a great op-ed when it starts with a Norman Vincent Peale quote, amirite? But before I get too gleeful, I should admit that Suzanne Venker’s atavistic Fox News piece on gender roles doesn’t explicitly say anything about same-sex relationships. The book she’s shilling is called “How to Choose a Husband and Make Peace with Marriage,” which maybe gives us a clue, but without actually reading it (I don’t love you all enough to do that sort of research), we can’t know what her opinion on same-sex marriage is.
So maybe it’s entirely okay that the FoxNews.com opinion page ran her op-ed, titled “To Be Happy, We Must Admit Women and Men Aren’t ‘Equal’,” alongside a photo of a same-sex marriage:
But if I had to go out on a limb, I’d guess that Ms. Venker isn’t a fan of the kiss. I mean, one of those ladies is wearing trousers.
I honestly don’t know why the image is there. It’s the thumbnail for a video clip of an interview with Ms. Venker, in which the image never appears (and I watched all excruciating four and a half minutes of it to be sure; you’re welcome).
Herpa-derpa-derp, Fox News is good at itz jobz.
UPDATE: Fox has pulled the image/preview down, and at least for now the whole interview video it was showing up as the preview for as well. There’s now just an empty space for the third “related video” or whatever beneath the headline. Too bad like half the internet screenshotted it first, huh?
