A Twitter follower just pointed me to this billboard ad in Los Angeles:
Some of the comments posted about this picture are a bit juvenile and homophobic, like “Come to philly man..we dont play that homo shyt out here..100% real.. ” or “That kind of shit do not need to be on a big ass billboard.”
You have to hand it to ManHunt, that’s very bold. A blatantly homosexual ad hanging up in what appears to be a very busy area of town.
From the comments I’ve seen, I’m guessing most people would be okay with this ad if it celebrated straight male sexuality. For example, if that ad featured a straight couple with the slogan “Last night was hot,” none of those juvenile homophobes would have a problem with it. If that same billboard was a Viagra ad that featured a straight couple and used the slogan “Last night could have been hot,” none of those juvenile homophobe pricks would have a problem with the ad. I’m also willing to bet if that ad featured a lesbian couple using the same slogan “Last night was hot,” none of those juvenile jerks would have a problem with the ad; instead, they would be saying stupid shit like, “Why didn’t you call me so I could watch?”
Now, I’m sure some of the more conservative gays among us probably have a problem with the ad. They’re probably thinking, “That’s a bit too much” or “Why do gay people have to be so over-the-top with their sexuality?” And I’m sure there are both straight people and gay people who are bothered by sexually suggestive ads of any kind that are visible in places where children can see them.
What do you think? Is this billboard ad a bit too much?
