Topic: Media Research Center
It wouldn't be the Media Research Center if it wasn't denigrating anything that's even remotely non-heterosexual, so of course the MRC is having a fit over WNBA star Brittney Griner.
Lauren Enk whines in a June 18 MRC Culture & Media Institute item: "If you’re looking for a new role model for your daughter, USA Today has a suggestion: heavily-tattooed, androgynous lesbian Brittney Griner." Enk huffed that "USA Today’s Scott Gleeson lauded her as both 'the face of WNBA' and as a 'role model.' He simpered over her sense of humor as she picked out new tattoo ink with her current girlfriend, and hailed the moment of an example of how Griner is 'finally free to be herself' after coming out last April."
Enk's disgust for Griner becomes even more thinly veiled as the piece concludes:
We already know the media will gush over any athlete who comes out of the closet, and even blame discrimination when teams cut underperforming athletes who happen to support the gay agenda. And the sports world certainly has pushed the sexual image of its stars in the past. But, seriously? A tattoo-splattered androgynous lesbian rebel with road rage who dresses like a guy is the new role model for our daughters?
Maybe she should just stick to being a model for men’s clothing instead.
This is the kind of anti-gay agenda we've come to expect from the MRC, and Enk is certain doing what she's being paid to do.
