Remember when it was a social faux pas to suggest that monkeypox was mostly affecting folks in the gay community? In today’s sensitive culture, it came across as homophobic or as they might have said in the late 90s or early 2000s, profiling. A major no-no. In the 2020s, no one can categorize anything based on race, gender, sexual preference without getting called out and possibly even cancelled. Dun dun dunnnnn!!!!
But then there are commercials like this one from Cabenuva…
Make the Yuletide Gay*. Every scene in this commercial includes homosexuals, so are they suggesting HIV/AIDS is generally viewed as a gay virus? How dare they! Where are all the protestors calling out the makers of Cabenuva?
Laughing and Gay Like a Clown**. We’re definitely in clown world and this commercial is a good reminder. It’s another example of how the self-righteous progressive crowd picks and chooses the things they deem as inappropriate. It’s rarely ever based on anything consistent. I’ve written about this before because there are a handful of commercials aimed at the homosexual community, yet no one seems to have a problem with such obvious homophobia.
I’m Gay Every Morning***. It’s a lot like what went on in Florida recently. Generally calling someone “gay” was not socially acceptable and if you said it, you’d be cast out forever! But then there was a bill that came up in Florida that limited what teachers could talk about with their young students. All of the sudden it was derided as the “don’t say gay” bill, which, if my memory is correct, is exactly what the progressives wanted, right? In the weeks and months that passed afterwards, the louder progressive folks couldn’t say “gay” enough. It was everywhere. Clown world.
