Updated: I'm reversing my stance on this issue 100% in light of the fact that it has now reached the scale of physical assault. The media and Obama campaign had no problem producing faux outrage over the as-of-yet still unconfirmed "Kill him" comment at a McCain rally.... This story has gone unnoticed for over a month. McCain has repudiated those comments, to the point where he has almost come across as though he's only a few back in the cue waiting to fellate The One himself.
On Saturday, Republican vice-presidential candidate Gov. Sarah Palin came to Philadelphia. ACT-UP/Philly, among many other groups, called for an organized protest. I showed up and took some pictures. I even made a video of the protest of which I'm quite proud.
In wanting to represent the breadth of the protest, however, I took some pictures of people wearing shirts that attacked Sarah Palin using language demeaning to women.
You can see an image of these shirts here, but be aware the language used could be triggering.
I then uploaded these images to Flickr, without comment. Apparently my images were noticed quite quickly, because they started getting blogged about and the comments on this image in particular were quite extensive (the image is no longer on that page, but I left it up for the sake of recording the comments).
I made a mistake in propagating this language.
