I heard on a radio program last week an anti-smoking advocate taking issue with the use of cigarettes in movies. I'm not a smoker, but I do not that smoking a cig in movies has an element of *coolness* to it. And we know that businesses pay for movies to place their products, be it a piece of furniture, clothing, toothpaste, beer or a myriad of other products in a movie. I don't believe tobacco companies pay for their products to be placed in the mouths of movie stars, I believe the movie makers just feel that having their stars smoking a cig adds a bit of coolness to their character. But is their any so-called product placement that matches the homosexual product placement? Whether its television or a movie, the gay character is inevitably the one who *teaches* the straight character about fighting bigotry or being *empty/open minded* or is the loveable next door neighbor always available with a quip or life lesson or is the tortured *good guy* who overcomes all odds as our subtle hero. Crest, Coca-Cola or Frigidaire pay huge money to put their products on stage and screen. Anti-smoking advocates are upset over the tobacco companies getting their products on state and screen for free. But the free tobacco ads pale in comparison to the promotion given the gay agenda. At least there have been some movies made about the pitfalls of tobacco use. Nowhere is the movie or tv show that accurately portrays the filth, sleaze, self-created illnesses, psychosis and danger to society that is the gay lifestyle. Why is that?
