Pam Spaulding over at Pandagon recieved a must-read letter from Peter LaBarbera of the Illinois Family Institute. Peter has said in the past that he looks at gay porn for research purposes. Here is his defense from Pandagon:

The fact is, porn is a prominent part of the gay male world, and some magazines I collected had pornographic content (surprise!). (Most were simply gay publications like the Washington Blade.) On my side of the issue, we think porn use/addiction is a big problem; hopefully some gays will agree with us, but regardless, the endless effort to portray ME as a gay perv because I try to expose the wrongs of your movement makes about as much sense as saying GLAAD supports the Federal Marriage Amendment because they write about it a lot.

First of all… GLAAD very rarely talks about FMA because it is a media watchdog group, it is not part of its mission. You meant to say The Task Force or HRC talk about FMA, not GLAAD. Peter would know this if he spent a little more time researching LGBT organizations and a little less time researching gay porn, but I digress.

Peter goes on and on about viewing gay porn for research purposes… to help expose the horrible things men do to men and women do to women. I spend hours every day researching anti-gay organizations like Illinois Family Institute, American Family Association and Exodus, but I have never felt the need to watch straight people doing it in the bathroom to enhance my knowledge of the anti-gay movement. Does Peter think he will be able to better fight LGBT groups if he knows the best sex positions for same-sex couples?

I am not implying Peter is gay… I hope he isn’t gay… we don’t want him.

Sorry this post is a little short, but I suddenly feel the need to do some “research”.

Thanks for the Pandagon post Pam!
