fucked up, but true. I barely people feel like the people on the left satirized in this article are allies.
>“We are looking at these Arab countries with a very ethnocentric world view. There is a cultural shift taking place in that region and they are far more progressive than the average American thinks. This story is a testament to that forward thinking. This same sex couple had no trouble procuring a wedding cake in Syria. Now look at America, where gay couples are made to jump through hoops even in the wake of the supreme court decision that made gay marriage legal. It really makes you think, and if it doesn’t, well it should.”
>The couple who received the cake was unable to be reached for comment due to death by stoning.
It's a satire. The cake was made for a gay couple in Syria. All the liberal characters in the article are propping it up as a huge victory for progressiveness, but in the end you realize how shallow it is compared to the actual atrocities committed against LGBT people there.
It is satirizing the regressive left's tendency to condemn the West for relatively trivial shit, but ignore the awful things Arab countries are doing
