Stupid Little Fairy's

Why is it the more "labeled" your group is the more you see racism in things?

Have you seen the new Dodge Caliber commerical where there is a fairy flying around changing things into cutesy things and then flies to a Dodge Caliber and it's too tough to be changed into a cutesy thing?

Funny isn't it?

Not so to gays.

The Dodge Caliber's "Anything but Cute" advertising campaign featuring a fairy in one television spot is anything but funny to some in the gay community.

Some viewers and gay rights supporters have complained the Chrysler Group commercial -- dubbed "Too Tough" and featuring a fluttering fairy zapping buildings and trains into cuter-looking gingerbread houses and toy trains -- is offensive and borders on homophobic.

The fairy is unsuccessful at transforming a black Caliber and is mocked by a male passer-by walking a dog. "Silly little fairy," he says.

As retribution, the fairy turns the pedestrian's button-down shirt and jeans attire into white shorts and a polo shirt draped with a preppy sweater. His black dog leash becomes four pink ones connected to Pomeranians. The suggestion, some say, is the man was turned into a homosexual.

I see the man more as a preppy or metrosexual then a gay guy. Guy gays wouldn't be caught dead in a polo shirt.

"It directly finds humor with the term fairy, referring not just to the type that flies around with a magic wand, but also the universally recognizable gay stereotype of an effeminate gay man," the Commercial Closet said in an online review of the ad. Thenon-profit organizationmonitors marketing tactics that could be offensive to gays and lesbians.

So I guess Tinkerbell is a gay guy?

Come on people, stop looking (hard) to find things to bitch about. I would guess that most people that bitch about being "repressed" or discriminated against don't really know what those even mean.

Well, if you don't like the "...universally recognizable gay stereotype of an effeminate gay man," stop acting like the universally recognizable gay stereotype of an effeminate gay man.

Ya know, for a gay guy, Tinkerbell is pretty hot :-)

You gotta think that the sex change operation on a body that small must have been pretty hard.

That surgeon must be truly top notch. Where the hell do you find saline implants smaller than a human nipple?

Gays will try ANYTHING to remove any statement THEY find offensive. The ironic thing is that gays are the ones generally preaching tolerance. Yet, they are the LEAST tolerant of any group.

I must have missed the "racism" you mention.
