"I'm a gay man, and the general rule of thumb for me is that an ad that meets my emotional needs is not necessarily the thing that's going to change a typical voter's mind about gay or lesbian people."

emotional needs from an ad?

and how does this stack up against th epoll sthat were heavily reported a few months ago:
"A May 2011 poll by the Pew Research Center found growing acceptance of gay people on a number of fronts, but still plenty of doubts. Fifty-eight percent of poll respondents said gays should be accepted in society compared to 33 percent who said they shouldn't. More people thought gays raising children was bad for society rather than good, though the largest number of respondents were neutral on the question. The same poll found 45 percent support for gay marriage rights, up from 35 percent just two years earlier."
58 % accept gays but only 45% believe in gay marriage...

Sounds to me like a growing number of people are like me, no problem with gay people and whatever they would like to do in their private lives, but marriage is what it is...

Sorry Jane, but if you're going to quote polls regarding the Washington marriage law, then at least use polls from Washington state. Every poll done shows over 50% support for retaining Washington's marriage law.

Gays should be proud of their unparalleled cultural accomplishments and should include them in their "pro-gay ads." Pornography, pictures of needle punctured arms and legs and necks, emaciated victims of AIDS, youthful colitis... honesty is the best policy.

I have to agree, it would be nice if ads about allowing gays to marry would actually include a gay person once in awhile.

Of course the majority of viewings coming from those in prison or the recently closed rainbow circus of hijacked transgender children.

The whole problem (and a gigantic one that is now well and truly out of the box, and probably *cannot* be put back in by any means) is that it has become commonplace to believe it's *acceptable* to have public votes on this.

Who allowed that to happen? I honestly don't know; I think it was a combination of factors and that the pro-gay must shoulder some of the responsibility. Huge, prolonged, knock-down-drag-out fights to *stop* these votes might not have resulted in any victory, but *would absolutely* have changed drastically the conversation where these votes are concerned, and might have changed the votes themselves.

At this point, I doubt anything can be done; more than one pro-gay organization is on record as *welcoming* the public votes and *wanting* to work within that framework.

Never one to waste a nanosecond (which would not be apparent or clear on these boards but would be MUCH, MUCH clearer IRL), I turned instantly (more than a year ago) to assessing *what is happening with the public votes*, and have since tirelessly advocated that something drastic be done about the *egregious lies* told by the antigay. I'll never stop advocating this, and I'll never stop waiting.

It's one thing to believe in something and to present it as one's opinion during political or social battles. The antigay are *provably* wrong in certain instances,*know* they're wrong,*lie purposely*, and have been proven *to know they're lying purposely*; that's a different kettle of fish and something m-u-s-t be done about it.

It should be noted that it can be overcome by time and demographics; that will take longer, however, and will allow these *all-but-criminal* accusations to go unpunished -- likely forever.

If the gays ever decide to actually use a gay in a commercial, it obviously will be a gay from the sparsely populated "Good Gay" end of the barbell distribution.
They won't use an anemic, diseased looking gay walking down the sidewalk of SF wearing nothing but a speedo and high-heels.

What's missing from pro-gay marriage TV ads? Gays

The following exerpt is from a comment that appeared in the Comments section in an on-line newspaper in response to this same article:

[What an interesting perspective. I am voting against the amendment but I had never thought about the issues presented in this article. It should be taught that being gay is okay because it is. I'm not gay but I have a gay brother that was raised just as I was. He is a great brother and we share many similarities. He surely didn't choose to be gay and hated by so many. Being gay is just a part of his life. I love him unconditionally,...]

The poster was talking about homosexuality, while the article was about gay marriage! They are completely separate issues! Either people's ability to reason has been dulled by political correctness, or the gays are intentionally conflating the two issues.

He can love his own brother unconditionally all he wants. That doesn't mean everyone has to accept his self chosen frailties or to allow them to be projected in schools. Homosexuals conveniently skip homosexual acts as sodomy or perversion and wish that you call it marriage. Totally disregarding the dangers of their vice and there are plenty.
The rainbow ruse continues.

Tell ya what, Sweetie, we'll do that the minute you throw in deadbeat fathers, battered wives and molested daughters in your ads in tribute to heterosexual marriage.
