    I have no problem with gays as long as they keep to themselves. No one wants to see fruit loop love on there tv it would piss more people off then anything. How would you explain to your kid what there doing?

    you're such a double standard having homophobe

    if it was a sight for two chicks, you'd be jerking off constantly to the thought of the advertisement

    I can see where you're both coming from. In my opinion, they should be allowed to advertise their site but in a different way, not kissing all over each other over hands touching in a bowl of chips. Of course that would be rejected from being shown during the Super Bowl, that's watched by all age groups. They wouldn't show two naked women making out with each other either. It should be something less risque.

    Its one im aloud to have its a free country. Either way commercials arent the place to show such things especially during an even thats supposed to be a family freindly one.

    Fruit Loop Love? I really doubt that the advert is going to include a gay romp. If people are going to get pissed off then they should really get with the times because the world has moved on.

    The last bit is my favourite bit. If children is first introduced to homosexuality through a Superbowl advert then they've had a very sheltered upbringing. Going by that point, maybe this advert will be a world of discovery!

    If Tim Tebow is allowed to rattle on about being anti-abortion during the Superbowl, then I see no problem with this being on.

    as long as they keep the commercial like or eharmony where it's people being happy finding a life partner than I'm cool with it, but if it's all just about s*x and bootycalls and stuff then I say no.

    Myself and most of the country just isn't ready to see gay advertisments during the Super Bowl, I mean come on is their cause so important that they feel the need to have to have it during a football game? OMG they think they have rights, get married, have a family and keep your freaking love life to yourself. I mean fags found each other somehow for like years, now they need national exposure to meet people...use the internet like normal people..and correct me if I'm wrong but in some states butt freaking is still illegal and unless they added a new hole somewhere.......

    I personally don't care for it, and I think the Super Bowl has set itself up with teetering the edge of inappropriateness with things like commercials (as hot as the women are, that crap is tasteless). I would think they would go more conservative after the Janet Jackson fiasco, but don't even get me started on that.....

    Plus, why act like the SB is the only event to broadcast your commercial? Yes, there's a huge market, but you might tap into a better market for something outside the Super Bowl, not trying to Stereo Type, but think about it. It just seems to me they're trying to test CBS to see if they'll even air it, just to cry foul. I hate when we (as black people) do that crap, and I'm definitely going to hate it when someone else does that crap.

    Go to Oxygen, Lifetime, wherever, CBS isn't the only station around.

    Also, Gay is not the new black, it is nowhere near the same struggle and if I hear anyone else say that crap again I'm going to dropkick them with my barehands.

    Faggotism isn't a racial thing, the new black it isn't and they need to be dropkicked for even thinking that. Personally I haven't heard that but it's pathetic that anyone would even think that.

    Ive never heard it compared to 'the new black' either.

    Really? Cause I hear that damn argument all the damn time. Tell them to call my grandfather once they get shot with fire-hoses or couldn't board a train and had to hitchhike rides from Kansas to California.

    AB, trust me I don't doubt that it happens just that I hadn't heard it before.

    Ive heard that in my political science class actually. That people think its going to be the new civil rights movement. When you hear that it just makes you laugh.

    Maybe "kissing each other"? My 9-year old daughter knew about samesex love for years....

    as long you're ain't gay?

    i agree olly. same-s*x relationships are so in-your-face nowadays, my kids know more about it than I do. most people have homosexual relatives or friends anymore. My kids have a homosexual Aunt, a homosexual distant cousin, and one of their mom's friends is gay.

    This is not 1955 anymore where no one talks about it. We've had many conversations with our kids about homosexuality. My kids would see that commerical and say, 'So what?'

    CBS is mainly pulling the commercial for the older people that ARE offended by homosexuality being in their faces.

    SB commercials are usually more about which one is wittier more than the product/service.

    Maybe if they were to work with the NFL/Coke/etc. like having Palomalu catching them necking in the tunnel after the game & body slamming them to the concrete? You know, where there's something in it for everyone?
