    If it was the gay people who said it was, it sounds like they are just looking for attention.

    If they truly want to be "treated like everyone else" then they don't need special interest groups, now do they? This goes for more than just gays.

    Hahahahahaha.... thats good. I saw nothing suggesting it was anti-gay. Anti-gay speed walking maybe, but nothing against homosexuals. People are way to fackin sensitive nowadays. Stupid fackers ruined a great commercial :banghead:

    before long not having a gay couple on every TV show will be anti-gay, not having any gay empleyee's will make you discrimitory. It's happening, in 20 years where gonna see more stories about about gay couples than straight one's on our TV, they are already pulling commericals. This is a sad day in America

    It's anti speed walking, not anti gay.

    The banners are assuming by his look that he's gay. Aren't they the culprits?

    i dont see why its anti homosexual?
    if anything its making fun of speed walking not one anti gay message in there
    its been on uk tv for a while i think

    i agree if they wanted to be treated the same they would just shut up and act like fuck all was wrong but they dont they kick up a fuss, they try and make out that they are worse off than other minorities but thats far from the truth

    i dont have a problem with gays per say i just hate that gay lifestyle you know the camp people who think acting like little 12 year old girl is fun, i know not all of them do it but most are attention seekers as said before

    TBH - I thought the video was hilarious, and I honestly saw nothing wrong with it.


    Those that are getting so uptight are assuming that the speedwalker is gay, based upon his appearance and the way he's moving . . . which, I take that to mean that those who find it offensive hold some kind of visual sterotype as to how a homosexual should appear and act . . . meaning those people must be certified gifted that they can tell a homosexual from a straight man simply based on the individuals appearance. I wonder, can they also tell a wise man from a fool?


    I'm sorry, but the world needs to effin grow up and get over their shit. Why does something offend you? Is it because it triggers thoughts and feelings you're insecure with? Does it trigger repressed urges? Or does it make you feel uncomfortable? If it's the absolute later, why are you so uncomfortable by it? Unless it somehow touches upon you or triggers things that you don't want to deal with, then there's nothing to feel uncomfortable about. If it does cause some kind of metal/emotional reaction, perhaps you need to grow-up, act mature, and learn how to deal with your thoughts, emotions, and memory's you might have repressed. If more people were comfortable enough to seek psychiatry for their issues, we wouldn't have so many activists groups. :shadedshu
