Valentine’s Day Isn’t Only For Straight People
Armani’s gay Valentine’s Day ads are upsetting at least one group: OneMillionMoms.com. (via Mediaite).
[The ad features] a gay male couple, a heterosexual couple, and lesbian couple – oiled up and lustfully embracing. And while half naked couples in major advertising campaigns are nothing new, the homoerotic ads have been causing quite a stir. One online mothers support group (OneMillionMoms.com) is demanding the store take the ads down, claiming that the ads “poison children with 10-foot posters that are nothing but soft porn.”
Nothing new here, except that there are two gay couples.
Considering mostly naked heterosexual clothing ads have been around for years (hello Marky Mark!) one has to assume that the real concern is that children are being poisoned with soft gay porn. If not than groups like OneMillionMoms.com certainly have a big job on their hands!
A look at the OneMillionMoms website indicates they also have a problem with Rosie O’Donnell doing a family documentary on HBO, even though HBO is a paid channel, and is protesting the Simpsons Easter special where Homer goes to Israel and thinks he’s the Messiah, and Sacha Baron Cohen is the tour guide.Click here for reuse options!
