MassResistance launches anti-HRC campaign

The Massachusetts anti-LGBT group MassResistance recently launched a campaign selling anti-HRC stickers in an attempt to play on the traditional HRC logo containing two parallel lines (the symbol for equal)

The sticker is a crudely rendered version of the HRC equality logo in lavender with a black, diagonal bar through it.

The blue and yellow HRC logo is a ubiquitous symbol synonymous with the fight for equality for LGBT Americans. It first debuted in 1995, and has since become one of the most recognizable symbols for the LGBT community. In March 2013, HRC’s red version of the logo went viral, after millions of people shared the logo and countless memes to show their support for equality.

A headline on the MassResistance website states;

Tired of having the homosexual "equal" sign always thrown in your face? Stick it back at them -- and counter the gay agenda -- with MassResistance's stickers!

Have some fun countering the "gay" agenda

And a post on the site goes on to say “like the "equal" sticker, the "not equal" sticker is suitable for all kinds of creative uses. If they can do it, we certainly can! Good people need to be willing to tell it like it is.

It fits perfectly on your car between your "Impeach Obama" and "NRA" stickers!
