frepnog: OMGWHOTHEHELLCARES.jpg

seriously.  who gives a shiat who an Italian pasta maker directs its ads to?  Is that 1-5 percent of the world's population seriously worth catering to?

Barilla's profits soared to $81 million in 2012.

I think they'll be fine.

I have no problem with gay people....  but seriously.  We don't all have to bend over backwards for you.


Of course not. Bending forwards is fine.

Corn_Fed: The only thing they can do to truly correct the situation is to the very thing the CEO claimed he would never do: put gay couples in their advertising.


Yes, but it can't be vague, like two metrosexual looking dudes who could possibly be mistaken as heterosexuals who dress well. It has to be unmistakably gay. I suggest a hairy shirtless bear, wearing black leather chaps, and holding a whip in one hand. He will be feeding pasta to a heavily tattooed skinny twink through the mouth hole of his eyeless leather head mask. Heavy electronic dance music will provide the beat. That would be unmistakably gay.

Yes you do.
YES YOU DO!

Admit it, dude, there's that one nasty little nerve ending tickling you like an itch in the middle of your back that you can never scratch.
You want to bend over backwards forwards and sideways, don't you you little minx.

I've decided to boycott products that show ads with gay couples. Mostly because if a modern gay couple can afford it, then it's too expensive for me.

Just remember how well the "Christian right" has done so well with attempting to shove their beliefs upon us.
Do you really think doing the same is going to give you a different outcome? No, it's not. It's just going to make people despise you more for it. Well hey, maybe, the two groups should join up and try to do the same thing. After all, it's seemed to work so far.

Oh wait..............

I honestly have no idea what you're getting at with this.

Sure you do. You're just too hardheaded to think beyond yourself.

Oh wait, are you...are you really one of those people who believe being gay is a choice?

Oh dear...

So how do I get straight pasta now?  I assume that Chik Fil-A serves only straight chicken, whereas other establishments may serve chickens of dubious moral standards.  But where's my straight pasta?  Barilla used to be my choice, but now they're caving to pressure.  DEFEND TRADITIONAL PASTA!!!

Hebalo: DarkVader: frepnog: menschenfresser: Right; I'm sure it actually increased business with the derp crowd. "Traditional values" my ass. Surely they could put "Family" in the name of their organization/publication like most hate groups do.

Why is it hate?

Ahh, right, just claim that hate isn't.  No one will see through that.

It's the same tactic that some of the white supremacists are taking these days, they're claiming that they don't "hate" black people, they just don't want them around.  It's disingenuous, of course.

I have a traditional family. No gay people in it. Do I need to start inviting them over every night for dinner, or risk being called a bigot?


You seriously think you're not related to anyone gay?  LOL

I suppose a gay guy giving a lesbian a friendly embrace is out of the question?


Is the gay guy wearing a white skintight rubber body suit, black lipstick and heavy mascara? Does the lesbian have spiky hair, a neck tattoo and 31 earrings on one ear while wearing a loose flannel shirt? Then yeah, I guess it's ok.

I would hope that if I were straight, I wouldn't throw out ignorant comments like "I have no problem with gay people.... but seriously. We don't all have to bend over backwards for you" because that is just all kinda of stupid.

I actually see you on here a lot and think you are trolling.


meh, all I am saying is that gay people are a demographic.  If Barilla doesn't feel the need to cater to them, so what?

Should white people be offended that the makers of Soul Glo don't cater to THEM?

If I were gay, I'd have a long, long memory about this sort of thing. Forgiveness is a wonderful thing but so is letting business know that if you castigate a group, you can really hurt your bottom line.
