mcdonalds makes a "gay freindly" ad and people go nuts
Posted 6/1/10
I really, really do hate people at times. It is not that ad I am mad about it's the neo Conservative bull shit that is pissing me off. There are people really wanting to boycott McDonald's now because they had "gay" friendly ad, but lets see if this was an hetero ad there wouldn't be any discussion or problem with it at all or would there?? I mean come on, I guess I am setting myself up for rage material but shit, here is a link for info and just note the colorful comments in the discussion section >_>

Sorry but thats pathetic,who cares if he's gay or not?It's a fucking commercial and people need to realize that being gay doesn't matter at all,I'm pretty damn sure they wouldn't care if they saw some "Hot chicks" in mcdonalds.

People should be comfortable with their sexuality, and they should have the respect for it. I guess straight people would be scare that their children could be gay, and they are not use to this concept. Even though gay people probably have been existed for a while, they do not speak of it much. A while ago, in the News, there were two penguins, and they were both male. They love each other, and they could have a baby together, so one of them would sit on a rock, and hope it would hatch. The zoo keepers have noticed that, so they have given them a real egg. The penguins have a family.

pretty much this, people are so afraid that their kids will catch the "gay" disease or wind up gay that they would do anything to see make sure it doesn't happen.

^haha thats charming about the penguins. But on topic there's nothing wrong with the commercial unless mcdonalds is just making a cheap appeal ad. I find the cheap appeal thing wrong but then again teenagers, rappers, and just anything a bit more hip hop like has been spammed advertised so this a little out of the box which in my opinion resulted in nothing bad. There's nothing much to say about it unless you're just a douche who can't accept people as they are cause apparently you all feel that everyone has to have same sexual preferences and if they don't then they shouldn't be allowed up into the pearly gates cause your god doesn't like them. That's stupid. This ad is fine, the ignorant people are not.

I agree with you, and I think if some one is gay/straight, then they would know. I rarely go to the gay community around where I live, and there was a free animation film, so I went there. I walked around there, and the streets are very clean. I brought rock and roll roll (is eel fish, rice, seaweed, and avocado), and it was really tasty. ^ o ^

Back to the topic, well I got said that this is McDonald's slightly more creative ads.

This is becoming tiring. It’s 2010, yet Americans are still as bigoted and ignorant as ever, and seemingly dumber as the years progress.

So the commercial is French, huh? Here come the Americans sticking there noes in another countries business, while at the same time trying to oppress their views and morals, unable to accept the reality that not all people think like them.

-sigh- More close-minded prejudiced idiots looking for something to complain about. It really breaks my heart when shit like this happens. I mean all those people protesting something as trivial as a "gay friendly" ad could be doing something productive instead of putting others down because they don't have the same sexual preferences.

what gay people can't eat fast food? what does one's sexually preference have to do with eating at Mc Donalds? I find the ad itself a bit strange but a nice way to to show that they won't treat you any differently even if your gay, and it could have been his teacher he had on the phone who knows.

Oh for crying out loud, it's not like they were being blatant in that ad or anything. Was pretty damn subtle, if you ask me.
