It Could Happen
As in the duel absence-presence of Indian culture, there is also that sense for gay and lesbian culture. There is no great voice or unifying figure for gay culture as there isn't for Indians. Until recently gays were not portrayed in mass media. Indians still don't really have any representation, voice, or figure. In the absence of a gay example or representation, other groups have been able to misconstrue what gay people support or want in greater society. This parody of a republican ad is an extreme of that misrepresentation. Although outrageous, after watching the "Fox attacks" series, I can see it happening. The unfortunate thing is that people would worry about it.
