Phrases like, “Public restrooms can often be a hangout for the homosexual,” may be jokes today, but they were once widely regarded as fact.
This is an actual video that was shown in classrooms in the 1950’s. With brainwashing like this, it’s pretty easy to understand how an entire generation could become homophobic.
There’s nothing really gay in this entire 10 minute video, but there are quite a lot of innuendos and homophobic comments. In fact, it’s more of a PSA against pedophiles and strangers than anything else. “Riding in the shadow of death,” is a pretty laughable description.
I started watching this video because I thought it might be hilarious in hindsight. However, after a few chuckles I came to sick realization- millions of boys grew up with this hateful PSA in mind and regarded it as the truth.
