    Seriously, how bad can intolerance reach that even one of the greatest inventions of this modern world has to be tainted? And so what if the guy was gay? He made one of the best things ever.

    On a side note, the British government formally 'apologized' for his murder. Although I think it was more or a formality than a real apology.

    As$ holes like this make the world a horrible place.

    Maybe, if we tell them, that the inventors of the the hand placard and sandwich board were gay people protesting the government for marriage rights, they'll be forced to shut the hell up?

    If you take a look at a higher resolution version of the picture you can see a web address on the placard.

    How are you supposed to visit their web site if you've destroyed the computer?

    Stupid! :rolleyes:

    Use your iPhone, n00b! I mean, God! :rolleyes: Oh, wait, what do you mean, it's sort of a computer, too? Phones weren't invented by gays, innit?

    That sign screams sarcasm. I highly doubt it's serious.

    In this age of idiocy and intolerance, it really would not surprise me that stuff like that and worse is real. And yes, it's real.

    It looks to me like a pseudo-nutbag plant, trying to cast aspersions of even greater nuttiness upon the crowd.

    And what is that url? "www.myage.us"? Does that load?

    Unless you have some kind of proof, I don't believe it. If you were on a redneck wingnut forum full of the people in the crowd that guy's in, and you saw some random person post this:

    would you really think it wasn't sarcasm? It just seems extremely obvious to me. Plus if that person was being serious there would probably be more spelling/grammar mistakes and they'd use "queer" or something instead of "homosexual."

    Understandable. I saw the picture in a thread in /g/. Same discussion was raging on how idiotic it looks. However, it is very plausible that he wrote homosexual. After all, we have seen pictures with the words in a Placard that read:

    "Homosexuals are Gay"

    Really now? If I see people with placards like that one, I can surely see this guy.

    I agree it's sarcasm. And it's a chick not a guy.

    Without any context I would say it is hard to draw any real conclusions

    But my initial reaction is that it is one nutcase using satire to make fun of other nutcases

    In a bigger image of it, she seems to be holding a rainbow flag. I'm thinking she is poking fun at anti-homosexuals.

    Since we're all confused on the gender of the person holding the sign in question, I would reckon a guess it's satire as well. ;)
