When Sponsors has to pay enormous prices for commercials, they're not going to put Queers in them to destroy their product. Get real.

Actually, YOU are the one who needs (desperately!) to get real.

If I do see a commercial with fagg@ts in it I will definitely be turned off from buying that product. I'm pretty sure the corporations are smart enough to know I'm not the only one.

Unless it's a commercial for new tires for your double wide, or a nice frilly thing for your mama/sister (aren't they one in the same?), then corps aren't really going to care.

Actually, you pretty much ARE the only one. You and the one mom group. I'm pretty sure corporations such as Microsoft, Dell, LeviStrauss, Starbucks, United Airlines, Amtrak, etc. can find other, more reliable consumers than you! Guess what? ALL of the corps that I named are GAY-FRIENDLY!

If such representations occur at about the same percentage rate as our population among the whole, adjusted for our buying power, I'm ok with not being "mainstream".

We aren't, and never will be.
