Brightcove - Jetwave - Coming Out Insurance

First, we must have to subscribe to the concept of "gay." I don't.

This video is not cute or funny at all. Aside from the fact that it's "playing with the issue," that video is stupid, stereotypical, and homophobic.

Most "gay humor" is stupid and stereotypical because by its very nature it must reduce and essentialize what "gay" is in order to laugh at it. It's along the same lines as when a black comedian does black jokes. He must generalize. It's false.

The fact that Ant plays up being a flaming queen and participated in this video shows how homophobia, especially internalized homophobia, is alive and well.

I don't like musicals. I would never join the Madonna fan club.

This video is not progressive, it's regressive.

Sorry to rain on your gay rainbow parade.
