It looks great! I wish I could do stuff like that. Are you a graphic artist?
Not professionally. I actually started only a few years ago with computer productions, prior to that I was just a coder. Now I am becoming a Blender expert and even considering doing tutorials for other people. I mostly like to do computer generated animations for music videos. At the risk of advertising I'll post the link here anyway. I do more on my vlog though, but that's not as fanciful.

Um, the same way a heterosexual or even an asexual one does.

So you like little kittens more than fetuses?

Even if your number is correct, we're over populated, so yeah, I do like kittens better than fetuses, they're cuter too.

Why did I just post that? Because telling you the truth about the reality of the issue you are trying to use as an argument would be ignored, because you don't like reality, it's too difficult to hate reality.

'The magazine has a right to define its markt as it chooses'

I agree with you.

People have a right not to buy the mag and boycott their sponsors but the magazine should be able to refuse any ad which it does not agree with and that's life.

I do not find this on the same level as being denied a room in a hotel or service in a restaurant .

Every case is subjective. If it was my ad and the mag said "NO', I would go to another magazine .

But nothing stops you from letting others know about the magazine's policies. That's all that happened here. And the headline should be "Wedding Magazine Reconsiders Same-sex Marriage Ad and Says I Do."
