What about the rights of straight men. Almost every T.V advertisement pushes gay orientation. FFS. Its almost a crime these days to be straight. These gays must get over themselves. They are the minority, and all have issues. Whats with the fake accents & nasal twang whenever they speak. They werent born like that. Its all a freak act.

where are you seeing all this gayness on TV???
it's strange that you are so sensetive to it

@Daemos1, I agree: "the lady does protest too much". Malcop, get over yourself or get new gay friends. Not all gay people speak with fake accents and nasal twangs, mostly it's the ones who recently fell out or is about to fall out of the closet. Though I think you might know more about that than I do.

I think what he means is that in some movies there is a homo character. We should be warned about such things before we are exposed to such scenes, they are extremely offensive to many civilised people.
Daemos1 - 2011-08-12 10:11
No, you're a grown-up and whatever you're exposed to, you can handle because you're equipped to do so, as an adult...with a brain.
You want a f**** gay warning on the DVD cover, go live in Uganda with other 'civilised' people.

@deamos, If we are to put warnings on discs about foul language, warnings about violence, blasphemy, etc on movies, then I think I am also entitled to a warning about homosexual connotations in a movie. I find that a lot more offensive than any foul language, blasphemy, etc.
If you want other to respect your rights, then I also want my right not to be exposed to your fetishes.

@ Daemons1 just because you are gay and dont mind seeing it on TV all the time doesnt mean that it sits well with others. Everyone demands respect and go on about how it is their God given right to do what they want - sure, but that also means so does every single other person in this world. I have no problem with gay people, have a couple as good mates. People are just objecting to having it shoved in their faces. And I have never thought about having a gay rating on movies etc. May be something of the future which isnt a bad thing. Now stop being so mean to other people and go have a mani/pedi or something!

I'm not gay, I just believe in our constitution.
If you find homosexuality more offensive than foul language then that's your problem, but a lot of south africans are able to see past their own issues.
but thanks for the 'gay warning' idea, I've got a open-mic show coming up soon, reat joke concept
DABOSS247365 - 2011-08-12 14:40
@Daemos, well then use it in your show. this whole issue of political correctness is actually one of the reasons behind social decay. we cannot discuss certain issue as we are then breaking the law, we cannot discipline kids as they have rights - look where that has gotten london, and that been brewing for decades.
This thing is messing with human development in so many ways. What the hell do you want your preteen child watching gay shows for? it breaks the fundemental logic of nature & can confuse a kid beyond repair. I'd love to attend your show & have a few shots at you, while risking backfire from the stage - please it'll be a chance to see what society really thinks, as comedy is one of the few places where you can speak your mind without being called prejudice
Daemos1 - 2011-08-12 15:12
Look I'm not agreeing with theis whole sesame street thing, it's ridiculous because I agree with you, our kids should be kids and not unnecessarily exposed to sexuality. But homosexuality isn't considered a 'defect' in our society anymore and we have to get past that as individuals.

@Malcop - which adverts? I am struggling to find any gay aspects about the Omo or Click a Bic adverts. Please share
