Anti-Gay Protest In France Included Interpretive Bird Dance: VIDEO


Kissing lesbians weren't the most amusing thing at an anti-gay marriage and parenting protest in France this week. That prize goes to the interpretive dance a man dressed as baby bird or maybe stork performed to symbolize the importance of a two-family heterosexual family.

Only a loving mother and father can make a baby bird fly, the performer and his very involved audience appear to be saying.

Watch the anti-gay interpretive bird dance in its surreal glory AFTER THE JUMP.

  1. This looks like something from SNL.

  2. That's the single most ridiculous thing I've ever seen in my life.

  3. That's super gay.

  4. does that mean that children in single-parent families (due to divorce or death) should be transferred to foster parents because the balance would otherwise be off?

    Creatively, I liked that artistic approach better, though, than the red-caped loons that stand at corners and yell at you to honk at them because that will somehow save 'traditional marriage' or something.

  5. What the hell happened to France? It used to be the gayest country on earth.

  6. WOW thats so um.... wow. I think that goes beyond labeling it gay and catapults itself into unicorn's farting glitter status.

  7. Just when you thought it couldn't get any more stupid than American anti-gay nutjobs

  8. i think that is the point Hugo.

    these people keep talking about "mother and father", which has nothing to do with the MARRIAGE argument.

    banning gay couples from marrying doesn't stop gay couples from having children, nor does it mean that single mothers or single fathers magically get an opposite-sex partner with which to co-parent their children.

    it just means that gay couples with children have THEIR CHILDREN put at a disadvantage, under law.

  9. Realité: There's a lot more to parenting than combining sperm and egg.Not everyone who can create a child can parent a child. And as my adoptive parents proved, you don't have to be able to creat a child to parent a child well.

    The lunacy in the video is brought to you courtesy of the putrifying catholic church in France, which even if largely irrelevant, isn't dead yet. Unfortunately.

  10. @Littlekiwi
    Actually in France lesbians don't have access to artificial reproduction technology precisely because they can't get married. There are still other means of course - traveling to Belgium for example, or doing the insemination yourself - but it's a lot harder than in the US there.

  11. Well, on the upside, at least it wasn't a f*cking MIME!

  12. Andrew, you should have paid attention to Rouquinricain on the previous posting. He noted that the two women were STRAIGHT. (He posted a link to the interview with them in Tetu.) He also noted that the principal problem people have with this issue is same-sex adoption by both parents. In fact, the text on top begins "Les opposants a l'adoption...".

    That being said, I find this display bizarre.

  13. They *say* they are only against gay adoption (or whatever other issue), but when you dig deeper you nearly always find out that they are against gay people existing.

  14. Wow...

  15. From France : please excuse us for these, hum, people :(

  16. wooooooow... so surreal, so dreamy, so smart, so.... french :S (see the irony here?)

  17. France is very liberal when it comes to sex, they do not care if gays f**k each other. But they have never been liberal about things like gay marriage and gays having families. They don't mind if the pervs have sex, after all they too are screwing everything that moves, but they are very conservative when it comes to their heterosexual privilege...They do not want to share things like marriage and children with homosexuals. France is still at it's core a Catholic country with all the prejudices and hypocrisy which that implies.

  18. Hmm, that was hard to watch but I do suddenly feel like having chicken tonight

  19. This is so gay. are you sure this is not a satire?

    Posted by: Tom Townsend | Oct 25, 2012 3:53:59 PM

  20. You know, there's a reason why we have an old saying in America:

    "He's either European, or gay."


    I've lived in Europe [France] and traveled pretty extensively, and it's a fairly accurate statement. A metro-sexual's paradise. Most dudes over there were wearing skinny clothes and narrow shoes/sneakers long before it actually became hipster fashion. Though I understand the Japanese take the top spot for being metro-sexual.

  21. PS:

    I LOVE France and the French, so I wasn't trying to be snarky

    Posted by: ratbastard | Oct 25, 2012 4:20:12 PM

  22. though I think it would have been just as well balanced if both said Mama or both said Papa (no offense to single parents - it was not my dance)

  23. What is a "two-family heterosexual family"? Is that a typo and meant to be a two-parent heterosexual family? LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

    Posted by: Tim NC | Oct 25, 2012 4:59:24 PM

  24. @TIM NC: Yes, it is a typo. Everyone else noticed it, but no one else felt it was such a big deal that they should write about it...

    Posted by: Quest | Oct 25, 2012 5:14:36 PM

  25. That was bizarre, hysterical and truly French- Viva le bigots!
