French anti-gay marriage movement “La Manif Pour Tous“ just released two very controversial posters for the next march against same-sex marriage, to be held in Paris on 2 February 2014.

“Gender theory at school… STOP”

La Manif Pour Tous

Hermaphrodite, the snail symbolizes the absence of gender definition helped – according to gay marriage opponents – by the French government. With this poster, anti-gay marriage protest against “ les ABCD de l’égalité ”, a teaching program launched in January 2014 to fight inequalities between girls and boys in French primary schools.


“Don’t affect our gender stereotypes”

La Manif Pour Tous

For “La Manif Pour Tous“, boys don’t cry and play manly games while girls play Barbies.

Reactions

Reactions have not been slow in coming on social medias to denounce those retrograde statements. A couple of illustrators modified the posters to demonstrate the danger in supporting gender stereotypes:

Comments about Anti-gay marriage posters supporting gender stereotypes in France

This poster has nothing to do on this this. It clearly promotes a homophobic message. The advertiser is - rightfully - held responsible for skyrocketing rise of homophobic violences (+27% in France) between 2011 and 2012.
