“Kids, Watch Out For Homosexuals!” -North Carolina

This old 1950s PSA could in theory be ‘funny’ today in a ‘Reefer Madness’ sort of way. Because we now know that marijuana isn’t the diabolical drug it was portrayed to be back then (the 1930s). What makes this PSA not-so-funny is in 2016 North Carolina legislators just passed a 1950s anti-LGBT bill predicated on the [trans]phobia of LGBT people–i.e. “homosexuals”–in public restrooms. Which makes this PSA about as ‘funny’ as a scene from ‘The Birth of a Nation’ (1915). Not funny. #WeAreNotThis #HB2 #dontBSyourself
