GLAAD Responds To Kirk Cameron's NOM Video

Kirk2012

Calling Kirk Cameron's anti-gay politics "outdated and irrelevant," GLAAD president Herndon Graddick admonished the actor for teaming up with the National Organization for Marriage and claiming that children can only thrive — "incubate" was the word he used — when raised by heterosexual parents.

"Kirk Cameron and the anti-gay activists at NOM are making a claim that Americans know to be false," said Graddick. "This rhetoric won't work anymore. Communities across this country love and cherish their LGBT neighbors, friends and family members. This includes people in families headed by LGBT people. Their implication that LGBT couples can’t create loving and stable homes is not only outdated and irrelevant; it’s designed specifically to hurt those families.”

And, as we learned today, almost all the major American medical associations agree with GLAAD's assessment.

  1. I have no idea who this actor is so I looked on Wikipedia and discovered he is a former child actor and his career is now in the toilet. I should have known. He is using this platform to cause controversy to raise his profile.

    It's time to stop these idiots using us for free publicity. Stop reporting stories by these D list "celebrities" - let them fade back into obscurity.

  2. Here's what happened. Cameron made a mildly anti-gay statement a few months ago. It made the news, and the big gay organizations jumped all over him, claiming he was homophobic.

    He was taken aback by this, and tried to back pedal, but still held fast to his homophobia. This got him more news coverage.

    Blogs liked Towleroad and others kept the story alive. So he became rather visibly anti-gay.

    NOM sees that he's something of a celebrity, so they contact him and offer to pay him for a this speech. Having no other gigs, he accepts.

    We now give him MORE publicity, which means he is becoming even more valuable to NOM and the other anti-gay groups.

    When will we learn! When a washed has been like Cameron or Victoria Jackson says stupid things, we should just ignore it. Otherwise, we just help revive their career on anti-gay hysteria.

    You are severely misinformed. Kirk has been a vocal homophobe for many, many years. Do some more research.

    Here's on of his classic wrong-headed ideals about religion:

  9. i for one am tired of the bible beaters claiming that gays getting married is the fall of american society when heterosexuals continue getting married, having cildren, getting divorced, getting remarried, having children, etc. children are being raised in multi blended families with different last names. there are no full blooded siblings, half brothers and sisters with step families are now the norm. why arent the protesters storming divorce lawyers and churches for allowing people to remarry?

  11. oh man, jason's comment made me laugh so hard i had to respond. anybody remember tiger beat and all of its clones? (does tiger beat still exist? there's probably a 2012 version in checkout lines somewhere.) i'm pretty sure queers don't have the market cornered on pre-teen/teen celebrity crushes.
