Less than a week after the far-right group the Proud Boys were mentioned at the presidential debate, the group's name is being taken over on Twitter by gay men.

During the debate last Tuesday, President Donald Trump did not condemn the "western chauvinist" men's group that the Southern Poverty Law Center says is a hate group. But on social media, many men in the LGBTQ community began sharing photos of themselves and their partners to counter the group's rhetoric.

"What if gay guys took pictures of themselves making out with each other or doing very gay things, then tagged themselves with #ProudBoys," Star Trek actor George Takei, who is gay, tweeted Thursday.

Many have been posting the photos using the hashtag #ProudBoys and often sharing how long they have been with their partner.

Outrage is warranted. But outrage unaccompanied by analysis is a danger in itself.
