I normally wouldn’t start a thread like this but the observation is clear. There has been a big push for years to put homosexual charactors in tv shows and it has prevailed. Social media advocates for it in a variety of ways. In addition, we know there is politically correct awareness that endorses homosexuality.
The one area (in the US) that avoids promoting it is advertising, as in tv commercials and magazine ads. Do you see any tv commercials with a man sitting on the other mans lap and/or giving a kiss? I don’t see two woman holding hands as lovers promoting a ciggarette brand in a magazine.
If homosexuality is widely embraced and “normal”, what do the advertisers fear? I would imagine some in the advetising field are gay, yet there is no sign of it in ads.
My point is advertisers must know they will lose customers or it will repel the possible buying of a product. So, I would say, convieniently, it is not widely accepted even by mainstream or liberal America (when it translates into dollars).
