FOX Punks Self with Same-sex Couple

Oh, Fox News.

In a video about how nobody will be happy until we admit that the sexes are not equal, and “traditional” gender roles in marriage, Fox News went to the internet and nabbed a gorgeous photo of a gorgeous couple taking their traditional vows atop New York’s Empire State Building.

One problem. The happy couple just happens to be two women. Lela McArthur and Stephanie Figarelle from Anchorage, Alaska won a contest last year for their dream wedding, and got married last Valentine’s Day at the famous landmark, on the first day that gay marriage became legal in New York. The only thing that would have made this wedding better is if they were allowed to be married in their state of residence.

Traditional couples. I don’t think they look like what you think they look like, Fox.

    Hummm…isn’t on of Faux’s slogans “we report, you decide”? So, are we to decide that our eyes deceive us and that is a man and woman? Or that Marriage Equality is important to Faux Viewers? Or that Faux was just being Faux and posting the first pretty picture they could copy off the internets? I guess we’ll never know for sure. ;-)

  3. Oh, that is so perfect. And an early Happy Anniversary to the lovely couple.:-D

    Sorry I can’t quit laughing. At FOX of course.

    I recognized the couple immediately; obviously no one at FOX watches “Say Yes to the Dress” … ;-)

    Fake Noise-Far Right and Biased-Never right but never in doubt.

    TOO funny. For Fox to call itself “news” is, at this point, beyond ridiculous. Since Fox is also the sole perpetrator of the false meme “War on Christmas,” (which Wonkette has highjacked to brilliant effect), maybe they should read this too, after checking out their own blunder on BuzzFeed: http://www.buzzfeed.com/seancurry1/questions-atheists-are-sick-of-answering
