The good people of Canada who produce oil products from tar sands are high on the list of the left’s top environmental criminals. So it is rather delicious of Canada’s Oil Sands Community to rig up this ad for their Facebook page:
Well, you can guess what happened next. All hell broke loose. From Canadian press account:
“That poster was disgusting, fetishizing queer women and reducing the existence of lesbians to something for men’s pleasure – for something for men to find “hot”. Queen relationships between women may be beautiful but they don’t exist for men,” Jessa wrote.
“There are so many ways to raise awareness to any issue without sexualizing or demoralizing human beings or a group of people who face adversity,” Catherine wrote.
I think this last part refers to “our friends, the Saudis,” who take a less than progressive view of lesbianism.
The Oil Sands Community has taken down the ad and apologized.
[Note to all commenters with the initials “JC”: Behave yourself.]
UPDATE: Turns out there’s a video version of this same geopolitical message.
