Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

That photo was a sensational, spontaneous, opportunistic piece of propaganda. It generated a considerable buzz.

The back story : the two young women, who aren't even gay (sorry to disappoint, twankie) just happened on an anti-marriage demonstration :

(organised by conservative catholics)
The slogan is "One daddy, one mummy. Don't lie to children". (Yeah. Complete non-sequitur.)

and were offended by it, and decided to freak them out a bit.

Look at the expressions on the guys in the lower left-hand corner of the picture ... they're lovin' it.

Actually, they first tried to talk to the demonstrators, and found them so bigoted that they decided talk was useless. Then they heard homophobic remarks and decided to make their point visually.

Good on them. Nice to see teenagers with the right attitude. I find it even better that they weren't gay themselves -it makes their stand more altruistic.
