    I'm not sure how to take this. Is GLAAD a group who have too much time on their hands? Is this an over reaction? Or is this something that deserves attention?

    My sister-in-law is a lesbian and she was at my house watching the Super Bowl. She decided to count all of the "anti-gay" things she saw during the game. She was thankfully out of the room when this one came on. I know she would have flipped out. She was pissed off about the one with Sheryl Crow because it showed her hair dresser as a gay man. Nobody seems to be complaining about the fact that it uses stereotypes against men, and makes it seem like men are dumb insecure brutes that constantly need to defend their manliness. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for equal rights for ALL people. Some people are just more sensitive about these kinds of things.

    I would have thrown her out of my house. I dont care what your sexual preference is, but dont run your mouth about it all night long during the holiest of sundays.

    Haha. Naw, she's cool. If I would have kicked her out of my house it would have been because she was rooting for the Bears! Haha.

    I thought Cheesey and Zero were very good in that commercial and it's a crime they are taking it off.

    Did you guys get paid in Snickers?

    Now.....with the joke out of the way..........maybe it's just me, but two guys kissing is just GROSS! I know, some people like that kind of thing, but i can't understand WHY a guy would want another guy when there are SO many beautiful women out there.
    It was meant to be, and was funny.
    To me, there are WAY too many commercials out there showing men as stupid, or thoughtless people then anti **** commercials.
    Why do you think the Geico "So easy, a caveman could do it" commercial was so good? The very first one they did had me laughing like crazy! Now it's getting a little overdone, but the very first one had me laughing! They HAD to use something (a caveman) that would offend no one, cause there are no cavemen around to whine how stereotypical it was.
    People need to get a life, and go after REAL things that are wrong, not some commercial. Some people just LOOK for things to offend them. I guess it gives their life some purpose.

    I loved this commercial, it was the one I laughed the hardest at. It wasnt as though they were kissing they were eating a candy bar and touched lips so what...

    I have nothing against gays or lesbians they are good people to. Just not my lifestyle is all...

    Because you're not gay maybe?

    Because white males have the upper hand in this country and don't need to fear persecution. I'm not an angry white male.
    That said, I thought the commercial was pretty funny and didn't gross me out, I have dozens of gay friends, male and female. I'm with Heather.

    No....i'm definitly NOT "gay". Why they even call it that is beyond me. I have had some "gay" friends, and i can honestly say not ONE of them was "gay", (happy). Two of my lesbian friends are 2 of the most "un-gay" people i have ever met. They are physically and emotionally abusive to each other. So is another one of my friends. I don't know her lover, but they got so bad i pulled away from her because of fear for my own life. One of my wife's gay friends (male) was shot dead by his lover.
    In this thread, the one person said how his lesbian friend was gonna watch for and count all the anti-gay stuff during the super bowl. Well, if you LOOK for those things, you WILL find it, even when it's not really there. If you looked at any commercial, you can find negative things to complain about if you look at everything looking for trouble. Same goes for TV shows or movies. I'm a Christian, and can't count how many times i have seen anti-christian stuff on TV shows and movies. They usually paint all Christians as Bible thumping lunatics. I don't go looking for it, but sometimes it's so obvious it's rediculous.
    The Snickers commercial was NOT an "anti-gay" commercial. It was two obviously hetro men, that got caught up cause they LOVE that Snickers. Then had to prove to each other they were in fact straight. They didn't show 2 men flittering around like tinker bell in tutu's.
    Like i said, if you go around looking for trouble. you WILL find it.
    You said "white males have the upper hand in this country and don't need to fear persecution." So that means it's open season on us, and they can do whatever they want to make men look dumber then women and children, right? That makes it ok to portray us as dumb idiots.
    Maybe SOME white males have the upper hand in this country, but i have been turned down for jobs BECAUSE i am a white male. I was more qualified, but shut out because of my skin color. I could walk around eternally p.o.'ed because of this, but what does that accomplish?

    I too, have been passed over for jobs because of quotas, age, and simply because I have a beard. F@#$ 'em, I don't want to work for someone like that anyhow. I have no problem with commercials portraying men as Neanderthals, as I don't put myself in that group.
    What I find humorous about the Snickers flap, is that both the gays and the homophobes found it repulsive. That is damn near impossible to script.
    And no, Cheesey, I'm not calling you a homophobe.

    LOL! No problem Hammer! When i run into people that do things i don't agree with, i don't just hate them because they don't agree with me. I have had some good conversations and i think made some good points with gay people. In my years, i have learned that people won't listen to you if they know you really don't care about them. I have been judged so many times in my life, it's rediculous. When i was in my early 20's, i was a counselor at a Bible camp. I got in as much trouble as some of the kids! For example, we stayed with the teen boys in a big barracks. As soon as the lights went out, we started throwing jelly beans around the place, hitting everyone, including one counselor who had NO sense of humor. He turned the lights back on, and i started chewing out the boys.....lights out, i start throwing again! The boys all knew it, and you know what? They NEVER disrespected me, and would come to ME if they had any real problems. On the other hand, other counselors and parents thought i was a bad influence. I always told the kids to obey their parents and not be disrespectful. 25 years later i had a man contact me out of the blue. He was one of the boys that i counseled. He told me how much it meant to him back then. He needed help, and i was there. Yet I was the bad influence.
    Now i get judged cause i have long hair. Can't win it seems!
    I wanted to be a cop........there was an add in the Milwaukee Journal. I was gonna apply. Then i read the last sentence...."If you are black, female, or other minority please apply." Needless to say, i never became a cop.

    For real! What do they expect......everyone to get up and clap?
    It's funny..........they preach "tolerance", but they can't and will not tollerate anyone that disagrees with them.
