I know that there are a ton of antigay rants on the board against the paperwhite commercial that features a brief gay scene at the very end.

As a proud gay man, I thought it was a sweet commercial that didn't feel over the top or in your face. The guy just said that his husband was getting him a drink too. Its not like he was hitting on the woman after learning shes taken or having porno sex on te chaise lounge...I think people need to get off their high horse and let love happen.

It was a sweet commercial that did what it was supposed to. Bet you haters would prefer molehill Cyrus, Amanda bynes or Ms. Logan to promote the product instead...

If you read some of the threads about the commercial, I think you will find that there are actually very few haters & most of the posts are pro the commercial.

Well most OP that I've seen are anti, thought there should be a thread for the pro commercial Frans to talk on, instead of defending the commercials.

I apologize for speaking my mind and assuming that the few represent the many. Come on Artist, I'm actually a fan of yours on here, please don't be mad at a fan.

I'm not offended by the OP. It was clearly directed at those 'other' OPs that we've all been unfortunate enough to have been bombarded by. I'm glad to see at least a pro-gay thread instead of another hate-filled spew of garbage.

In reply to an earlier post on Mar 13, 2013 4:38:44 AM PDT
Yes, the OPs of those threads had issues with the commercial. Did you bother to read even a few pages of those threads?

In reply to an earlier post on Mar 13, 2013 4:39:42 AM PDT
True. I opened the thread expecting a yet another anti-equality screed.

Thanks HJ and Cassie, I read and saw a lot of supporters but with 60+ pages you just give up after a while. I thought there should be a pro thread where no one had to be defensive but guess that was just a dream :P

Also, what's screed?

Sorry - it seemed to me you were lumping all the posters in those threads with their OPs.

A screed is, among other things, a written rant.

Zachariah says:
Wow I learned a new word...yay! The English nerd in me is satisfied right now.

And I didn't mean to come off as lumping all of Amazon posters as haters, I apologize for that. Just seemed that every thread re:the paperwhite commercial seemed to be started by haters. Wanted a pro OP lol. Spread the love!

WWED?

I like 'Molehill Cyrus,' and I'm going to steal that name for future use.

I will forgive you for not reading all the positive posts to the hateful threads that were started. There were a few positive threads about the commercial, but after everyone agrees, they tend to fall away.

Got it there was an extra space between the 3 and /

The hostile rants have been disheartening, true, but I have been reassured by the instant and ferocious opposition blatant homophobia received here on the Kindle board. I think of the posters here as my friends, and I'm glad to know my friends are good people.

I feel the same way. I like knowing that the people that I have gotten know on the forum are willing to stand up for what is right.
