Ambiguous graffiti


I saw this graffiti and was struck with questions:

“Fuck Gay’s!!!”

Is this pro gay or anti gay? Or just pro fucking?

Why the apostrophe? What does the writer want to fuck- or want to encourage others to fuck- that belongs to gays? If body parts, it indicates that it is pro gay. Or at least pro fucking.

But if rights or property, that would be anti gay.

Now, if it is just a grammatical error, that would also indicate anti gay, because the ability to spell and correctly construct grammatical structures seems to be lost on people scrawling hate on walls.

As to the exclamation points, I’m just going to quote from Eric, a book by Terry Pratchett: “Multiple exclamation marks are a sure sign of a diseased mind.”

What do you think?
