Re: McD "gay" ad.

I am glad that this ad is not airing in North America. I don't see how this ad will "improve" the situation of LGBT. I argue that the ad only perpetuates what is supposedly "normal" in society and that that norm is "hetero, white, christian, and male." Anything outside of that is not "as OK" or just plain "wrong."

I blogged about it today. Have a read if you're interested.
