    Also, not to put too fine a point on it, that doesn’t look like a white man.

    These people complaining are idiots though.

    1. Thank you! This is the only publication so far, that I’ve seen, that messed this up.

  2. “Yes yes. Blah blah, now piss off” would be my response to the crazies.

  3. So let’s see.

    In Dallas they think this photo promotes homosexuality.

    In Dallas they have one of the highest rates of HIV infection.

    Ignorance is bliss OK.

  4. I guess in Dallas there are no ads featuring opposite sex couples promoting heterosexuality then?
    Get over it.

  5. That is not a white man. Am I a racist for pointing that out? I hope not.

  6. The other man only looks white to Texans and those in the good ole south. Gay and interracial are a big taboo to good ole boys.

    He looks kind of arabic…

    That said, Dear rest of the world, the next time you send all your religious wacos away please do not send them all to the same place.

    Sincerely, North America…

        Actually, the French were here before the English. And if you really want to be picky, the Vikings were here before them. And if you REALLY want to be picky, the Asians were here before anyone else.

        1. And the innuits? Or are Canadians blind to them?

    2. Hi, thanks for dispelling the “white” myth…I mean, hello. Since when doe a picture not speak for itself? Not Arabic, but black and Indian. I know first hand, as it’s me. I should also say, I think Dallas missed the point.

  8. So they criticise the LGBT community for having high levels of HIV/AIDS (not neccasarily higher than the straight community), but then also criticise us when we try and tackle the problem? They can’t have it both ways.

  9. How exactly do you ‘promote’ homosexuality? If it’s the same way you promote ‘heterosexuality’ …. I can tell you from personal experiance – IT DOESN’T WORK! If it did, I would surely have been influenced by all the heteocentric images I had to endure while growing up. I wasn’t. So, to those worried they may be turned gay by these posters – I say, ‘Don’t worry’. Unless, of course, you already have some same-sex attraction self-doubts ….. ?

  10. If anything, the billboard is promoting equality by showing a same-sex couple (and awareness to HIV and AIDS etc etc). Are people to say billboards showing a man and a woman marrying ‘promoting’ heterosexuality? Of course not – yet so many wacky and ignorant fools think that homosexuality is a choice or something that can be spread or ‘promoted’. Ridiculous.

  11. There are thousands of images of men together – hugging – bromance style – why do these homophobes always assume that they are Gay – It is MEN who mostly transmit and are at risk of HIV – FACT – their sexuality is only relevant – depending on the country they are in – eg most men in Africa with HIV are Heterosexual

    Any excuse to blame gays – It really is pathetic in the eyes of the rest of the evolved world!
