But to be completely honest, speed walking as a sport is pretty gay.

So they ban this for being homophobic, but yet ban that other chicago town pizza or whatever it was advert for being homosexual-oriented. They should make up their minds.

Speed walking is non-homosexually gay.

Someone can be gay AND manly. They are not antonymous, and can and do easily coexist.

it`s only homofobic if you stereotype homosexuals as afeminate, which most of them aren`t.

So, it`s offensive for those who have prejudice.

I for one believe people should reaaaly separate what`s offensive of what`s true prejudice/racism.. racist jokes.. stereotypes .. are offensive but aren`t damaging actions to an individual.

Anyone judging an individual by his race/gender/etc.. that`s the true crime.

that was hilarious, I really wish they would let it air.

And in a wierd twist since the vid didn`t really imply (at lest to me) that the guy was gay all the sensitive "this is homophobic" people are actually being discriminatory. Which also made me laugh. [though those shorts were a little off]

The ironic thing is, to say this is homophobic is to generalize gays as feminine in the first place.

The don`t mention the man being gay... so... does this mean even the gay community admits that speedwalking is gay?

I actually think the people calling the commercial "homophobic" make it worse than the ACTUAL commercial. It`s totally not homophobic. If anything, it`s sexist - insisting that men act and exercise a certain way. Big whoop. Next.

I can`t beleive i`m saying this...but i agree with Prime about the Mechanic Kiss commercial. Rather than homophobic, I thought it was the exact opposite. Like it was showing how stupid it is to be so worried about proving your masculinity.

Yay, another Mr T Snickers ad :D
The first one was good too.

Whoever complained about this advert is more `homophobic` that the ad itself. They must assume any unmanly man is gay.

Look, men have a set of rules called Man Laws. Its basically acting manly. Speed walking is something that is not manly. Thats it. Him having what what in the butt was never mentioned.

I think people are getting to sensitive. I loved Snickers commercial where two mechanics kiss, "QUICK DO SOMETHING MANLY"

Do you people even know what Homophobic even means.

Damn I`m tired of hearing pulled or whatever for being homophobic, they`re obviously not afraid if they expose it.

But funny none-the-less.

It`s not "homophobic," so much as it might be slightly offensive to gay men. I dunno, I agree with those of you who are saying "it`s not that bad," but I can see how it might offend people.

I also happen to find it absolutely hysterical xD

I fail to see how its homophobic...then again I failed to see the offence in the Hinze deli ads that got pulled as well.

In both cases this is the manufacturer bowing down to minority pressure. Not justified in either case!

I can understand how people would look at this as homophobic because Mr. T says that he`s acting girly which makes him a disgrace and then pelts him with snickers, but still its not that bad. At least i really hope that seeing that commercial wouldn`t give people the urge to pelt gays with snickers, however if it meant free snickers they might like it.

Ok. I`m Gay and i`ve been arguing about this on the gay blogs for days now...
IT`S NOT HOMOPHOBIC. Mr. T is after the guy for speedwalking, an activity that makes anyone look absolutely ridiculous. Just cause the guy has a wiggling ass, doesn`t mean he`s gay. And nothing else about the commercial suggests he`s gay at all. He doesn`t yelp like a nancy boy when being pelted by candybars or anything. I don`t see the guy as gay, therefore, it`s not homophobic.
On the other hand, a perfectly innocent Mayonnaise commercial was pulled due to complaints by Christian activists because it had two male parents, one a stereotypical italian new yorker making lunch for the family and kisses his husband goodbye.
I think people are overly sensitive about stuff. It`s like that guy who thought "Black hole" was a racist comment.

Okay, so I get if Mr. T had said, "Speed walking`s gay, get some nuts!" or something instead it would`ve been banned.... but absolutely NOTHING homosexual was implied! Good GOD. THERE`S NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT COMMERCIAL!

I feel bad for those people who think up ideas for commercials. The public`s going to get upset over everything, arent they?
