Gay rights organizations that are now well funded to react at times like this laid down the law, and said this advertisement was unacceptable. The candy company to their credit yanked the ad at once. But the question remains as to how this ad ever made its way through the process that ended up on national television during the Super Bowl.

We would not expect to see jokes made at the expense of African- Americans, the Jewish community, or Catholics. But to some it was just fine to promote homophobia on national television. As for the website showing football players who displayed the effects of too many brain-rattling tackles, I was not surprised.

But let it be shown that even though some may slip homophobia on the airwaves it will be slapped down. Society is making progress and I know that many in our country are coming to better understand the meanness that is homophobia.
