FFS with this identity politics!There will be. Advertising reflects the status quo and building a rapport between characters and audience.
The homophobes will die off soon.

I'm relaxing in front of the idiot box, and now I have to explain to my idiot kid why Johnny has two fathers, and explain the threatening dunnn duh duh dah Star Wars theme does not mean Darth Vader is about to burst out of our soup cans.
The point of advertising is to raise awareness of the features and benefits of your product so you can sell more product, not educate the public on the lifestyle choices of the characters portrayed by paid actors holding up said product.
Probably because who cares? Advertising is a means to a end, and the end is sale of products. Advertisers will therefore target the biggest or most appropriate demographic for their product. Unless they specifically want to advertise with a social message behind their product like acceptance of same-sex couples (which is really just selling another product - the company/business image), they will carry on with business as usual. Wish we all would. That's when we move on from a facade to real change.Why aren't there inclusive commercials like this on Australian television? I think it's about time
And your point is?Clearly triggered by same-sex couples, hey?
They aint going nowhere
They're moving right next-door to you...
