Billboard: "Gay Marriage = Gay Clutter"


"It's funny cause it's true," says my pal Jason Tester who posted the photo to his Instagram feed @guerrillafutures.


  1. Surely the greater level of duplication within a given set of homoclutter allows more efficient compression than can be achieved with the more entropic heteroclutter?

    1. Some might view that as a tad stereotypical. Homo- or heteroclutter can never be determined by sexuality alone.

      1. True, yet comparatively, clothing and toiletries are less likely to overlap in hetero-unions, providing the homo-unioned some space savings and a less cluttered feel.

  2. Personally, I’m looking forward to Gayrage sales.  The go-to places to buy trendy gay clutter.

  3. There’s something wonderful about the fact that, just below the article, I’m seeing an advertisement with a guy in a tux and a woman in a wedding dress that says, “Do you support TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE? Vote now!”

    As much as I hate to stereotype something tells me the people who paid for that advertisement aren’t going to get the answer they’re looking for from most BoingBoing readers.

    1. Given that people pay to run ads(either per impression, or per click, depending), there is a warm, soft, spot in my heart for situations where dubious machine-intelligence attempts at keyword matching end up allocating ads from people I dislike to places they would dislike…

        1. It should be noted that boingboing’s ads are served by Federated Media, which has deep connections to BB and related companies like Make. While it’s nice to think that anti-gay people are wasting their anti-gay money by advertising on bb, I’m disappointed that Federated, and by extension bb, would take their money at all.

          1. Many of the ads come through remnant networks. It isn’t that we sell those ads directly. When ads like this one slip through, we do our best to block them. I didn’t even see it on the page, so thanks for letting us know!

  4. I must have misunderstood what they meant when they said they wanted to “keep things straight.”

  5. I used to help with an annual LGBT garage-sale fundraiser, particularly in picking up donations and as the cashier.  I observed, year after year, couples donating stuff that they had bought the previous year, and buying “new” (nothing cost very much).  Clutter didn’t occur.

  6. I spend a lot of time over by the west side 20’s (lots of u-sotore-its there), and Manhattan Mini Storage has really good ads. The tumblrs have examples:
