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.

La Manif Pour Tous
