Has anyone else noticed how many commercials have gay couples and interracial couples in them? It seems to me the number of these advertisements are completely disproportionate to what exists in our society. Starting to grate on my last nerve.

I have gay people and interracial couples in my family and I love them as much as other family members. It just seems to me like these companies are trying to one up each other with political correctness. Enough already!

I agree Handy, I have been complaining about these TV commercials to myself for over a year now. It seems that all corporate sponsors have to have at least one black, one white, one hispanic etc in all their commercials anymore. I have no problem with diversity but TV commercials get on my nerves anymore because of the way they present them cast wise.

It's all about the $$$$$.

Seems to me like there are more commercials about female hygiene products than anything else...never realized those things took so much maintenance [Confused]

The one that bugs me most is a boner commercial. The guy brags about how well the stuff works, then another older guy shows up. The first one proclaims, with his arm around the dude, that not everybody has a doctor in the house. And no commercial is complete without the obligatory mixed race couple. Straight white people are being discriminated against.

It is very noticeable. I often count the number of white men in commercials. Needless to say, I don't have to count too high.

Our society is trying to say that being gay or transgender is normal. It is NOT normal. And it's getting way out of hand.

Guys, It's about the money...they will show what sells. Corporations don't have anything against white men. Hell, most of them are run by white men.

Makes me gag too hc, but apparently we are in the minority.

Let me rephrase that. Apparently we are in the minority who the advertiser cares about.

If we are in the minority of whom these advertisers are trying to sell their products too, our country is in trouble and the progressive movement is winning.

Just as a point of reference, I was sitting in a restaurant in New York city last night. It was a muggy, rainy evening, but as always, the streets were full. Ninth Avenue in the "Hell's Kitchen" area of Manhattan is jam-packed with great little restaurants -- hundreds and hundreds of them. I was sitting at a counter looking out the window, and 80% of the 'couples' were men.

New York just finished their "Pride Day" parade, and it took 12 hours for it to complete. Twelve hours of gays, lesbians, transvestites, all half-dressed and doing obscene things as they "parade" (maybe "cavort" is a better term?) through the streets of Manhattan. Hotels replaced flags with the rainbow flag. Restaurants vie to be more "gay friendly".

The same is true for other big cities I have spent time in. San Francisco (of course). LA. Austin, TX. And, since the majority of our population is in those urban areas, this is the norm for most people in America.

We live in a part of the country where it is still "odd" to see men kissing, but our numbers are small compared to the hundreds of millions of city-dwellers who have come to accept not only men kissing, but open salaciousness and even demeaning remarks against heterosexuals.

Sodom and Gomorrah had nothing on America's cities.
