South Park episode 111, “Tom’s Rhinoplasty,” Shows Lesbian in Leather with Silver Cross

Lots of characters on South Park adorn themselves with crosses. Of course, clergy are obvious examples, like in “Hell on Earth” when the various bishops and priests all have big crosses around their necks – and around the necks of the little naked boys accompanying them are leashes.

Also, the goth kids – think about “Raisins” when Wendy breaks up with Stan – have crosses in their rooms. Similarly is Ms. Ellen, who one day decides to dress in all black leather and has a little silver cross around her neck. And she’s a lesbian.

What do you think the association is between goth and a goth attitude and the symbol of Christianity, the crucifix?
