Portrait of Santorum Made Out of Gay Porn

March 5, 2012

I’m not the most political person on the block, and I’m Canadian, so I don’t have a complete grasp of the U.S. political system, but you’d have to be living under a rock to not have the slightest inkling that the current presidential candidates (the republicans anyhow) all kind of blow. I’m gonna go on a limb here with a broad general statement that might be false (educate me if I am), but it seems to me there’s a good chance the next American president, whoever he turns out to be, will create a shit storm when it comes to gay rights, reproductive rights, etc. It seems to me like there are a lot of really important issues on the line here.

One of the Republican hopefuls, Rick Santorum, has called contraception “dangerous,” he’s opposed to same-sex marriage, and he also stated that he doesn’t believe a “right to privacy” is part of the constitution. Here’s an excerpt from his Wikipedia page:

[Santorum] has been critical of the Supreme Court decision in Griswold v. Connecticut (1965), which held that the Constitution guaranteed that right and overturned a law prohibiting the sale of contraceptives to married couples.He has described contraception as “a license to do things in a sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be,”and said in 2003 that he favors having laws against polygamy, adultery, sodomy, and other actions “antithetical to a healthy, stable, traditional family”.

In 2003, Santorum became the subject of a controversy when he juxtaposed same-sex marriage with pedophilia and bestiality during an interview. The remarks drew a retaliatory response from gay rights activist Dan Savage, who launched a contest to coin a “santorum” neologism among his blog’s readers. The outcome was a description pertaining to anal sex, and since 2004, the website Savage set up for the campaign has regularly been among the top search results for Santorum’s surname, leading to what commentators have dubbed “Santorum’s Google problem”.Santorum has characterized the campaign as a “type of vulgarity” that was spread on the Internet.In September 2011, Santorum unsuccessfully requested that Google remove the content from its search engine index.

And that’s just scratching the surface. This guy is dangerous. I think I would cry if he were elected president. Thankfully, I’m not the only one. The brilliant people over at Unicorn Booty decided to make a portrait of Rick Santorum made entirely out of gay porn stills. Fucking awesome! It really speaks for itself.

    Great post. I’m in Australia, so most of our information about the front runners are in the form of jokes. They do keep us laughing, too ridiculous to be true, but this is a very real fear. Quite horrifying.

    I just adore the irony of the picture. Thanks for sharing.

    @Subtlekate: True, the coverage we get in Canada, or at least the coverage I pay attention to, usually comes in the form of jokes, but it seems to me like the front runners for this particular election are way crazier than usual. Kind of scary that there are no better alternatives.

    @Gillian: Me too!
