Poverty Porn and Subliminal Messaging

The idea of FCKH8 is appealing at a cursory glance- gay, and straight people speaking out against hate. Hoever it becomes painfully obvious that poverty porn ( a picture of sexual imagery next to a picture of starvation/death) is designed to subliminally influence our perceptions of a message. Personally I have NO CARE at all who or what people do or do not sleep with, love, or marry as long as children are safe. I support human rights- I understand that elements of the LGBTQ community feel that fighting for marriage equality is the most important issue but I think that they are allowing a minority of fundamentalists to dictate how they feel about themselves. 

Anyway I never like the idea of a kid cussing and trying to act tough in a video to sell items, I am not a bully, and I support human rights for everyone. I am straight so I feel that I should not be so critical of this site but the offensive portrayals of African American women, gay men as sex objects ( no clothes on), and the mockery of trans people makes the message of FCKH8 confusing to me as there is no intellectual framework. http://www.fckh8.com/Videos_ep_49.html

I have often wondered what the anti bullying agenda is about? Does it mean that bullying is this rampant? Are christian fundies turning kids into defacto nihilists ( these kids have no CLUE what rational or thinking atheism means so I am of the opinion that they are most closely affiliated with moral nihilists in their ethical framework), is Macklemore an LGBTQ icon?  More on this when my ADHD self remembers
