Ford Helps Sponsor Explicit, Sickening Homosexual Scene

Rather than backing down from its support of homosexuality, Ford Motor Company has apparently taken a "rub it in your face" attitude. On the January 16 episode of "Dirt," which airs on the FOX channel, Ford helped sponsor one of the most explicit, sickening homosexual scenes ever shown on television. Be forewarned, it is extremely graphic. Ford has made it extremely clear that they have no intentions of ending their support of homosexuality. Among other things, the company reneged on their agreement to remain neutral in the culture wars, increased their support of homosexual publications, sponsored TV programs pushing homosexuality and required employees to attend "diversity" training promoting homosexuality. For more information on Ford's track record, go to BoycottFord.com.

Actually, the channel is "FX", as opposed to Fox 25. I haven't seen this episode, and cannot view the clip at this time. However, FX is known for pushing the envelope with graffic sex and/or violence, and the show is televised after 10pm. I may be able to comment more once I see the show.

I was not impressed with the 1st episode, so I hadn't gotten around to watching any others. Morals aside, I just thought it was weird and boring.

As far as Ford is concerned, I doubt they choose their advertising to just "rub it in the face" of those who may be boycotting them, or who may find the programming objectionable. I'm sure they advertise where they think their buyers are more likely to see the advertisement. It comes down to the almighty $$.

I doubt they even knew there would be a gay scene in the show. I'm sure they knew there would be adult content, but not the specifics.

The facts:

"(Ford) increased their support of homosexual publications, sponsored TV programs pushing homosexuality..."

Need I say more.

Check out my August 2006 posts especially the one titled "78 Dealers Ask Ford to Stop Supporting the Homosexual Agenda."

They are sponsoring homosexuality anyway they can.

Well, one could say they suggort gay equality, not the so called "homosexual agenda".

Maybe they just see more money coming to them from a gay demographic. Having worked in the business world for 20 years, (not for Ford admittedly), I just don't see it. I just don't see Ford as having a "rub it in your face" attitude. If they do, it is truly sad, whomever they are offending.

Have you seen the entire episode, or just the clip? If not, maybe the clip takes the scene out of context. Just supposing, I have yet to see it. Is the scene in fact pushing homosexuality? Is it showing it in a good or bad light?

I don't see anything more dirty than what I see heterosexuals doing on late night TV. They kiss, then there is the suggestion that things are going to get more dirty, but they only allude to it.

What is wrong with trying to advertise to gays? Are we to be out of sight, out of mind now? This is exactly the type of thing people talk about when they say that people are intolerant of gays. If anyone makes an overt attempt to reach us they are harshly criticized. I realize most of you here on the far right don't want gay marriage, but why can't companies advertize to us?

In my opinion this shows what I have suspected all along; you just plain don't like gays, and you want them silenced. Feel free to show me otherwise.

Yes, it is 'sad', whomever they are offending.

A man going down on another man is graphic enough to push homosexuality regardless if they show any genitals or not. I am pretty sure he was not going down to re-tie the other guys shoe for him.

Watch the scene and tell me how it can be shown in a 'good light'??????

Yes, this is true but SAFE heterosexual behavior is normal. Yes, there is the allusion to UNSAFE heterosexual behavior on TV and UNSAFE practices, involving any type of sexual orientation, culture, religion,ect should not be promoted at all especially if it is dangerous as homosexuality and promiscuous heterosexual behaviors are.

You said:

Nothing. Just keep it out of the mainstream like we do other unatural behaviors. Feel free to reach the gay community in their own media circles and not to heterosexuals. It is just good common sense and good advertising skills to target those you want to sell your product/idea to and not those you don't. The majority of the American states, 54%, do not agree with homosexual marriages, so why would you advertise the homosexual lifestyle/products/events ect with this group??

Do you see HETEROsexual lifestyles promoted in HOMOsexual magazines such as OUT and the Washington Blade??

My local Ford dealership put up hundreds of balloons last weekend for a sale event - balloons arranged sa red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and pink. No joke.

Do you think they are trying to sell to the 2% homosexual population?

Tyler, are you being serious? Because a business puts up a rainbow color of baloons, you assume they are targeting the gay population?

Where do you get your 2% anyway. I was curious to know the actual % of the gay population of the USA, and checked the census. They did not have specifics on the number, but did have statistics on the number of same sex households. According the the census, about 1% of the population put themselves down as sharing a household with a same sex partner. So that would mean, according to your number, half of all gays consider themselves partnered. Do you believe that?

Any credible sourse I've seen of the subject puts the gay and lesbian population at somewhere between 4% and 6%. Personally I think it is higher, but that's just from my life experience.

Well, I watched the clip, and then the episode. As offensive as some may find it, I've seen a lot worse on TV with straight sex scenes. Would the scene be less offensive is a woman had been "going down" on a man? They didn't even show that, just suggested it. The show is about a sleezy hollywood tabloid, and this is the kind of stuff a tabloid would be looking for. It's part of the plot, and does nothing to further anyone's "agenda".

The show doesn't come on till 10pm, and there is a disclaimer at the start of the show warning about adult content and explicit material.

All Ford is guilty of, in this case, is marketing during an show for adults.

The maximum percent of the population from any peer-reviewed study ever done is 3-5%. And many scholars agree that this number is on the high side.

You said regarding the scene from "Dirt":

"Would the scene be less offensive is a woman had been "going down" on a man?"

No. The scene would be just as offensive considering it promotes promiscuous sexual activity. The only problem I have with the scene involving two men is the fact that it portrays abnormal promiscuous behavior that involves two people of the same sex.

Well, 3-5 or 4-6. Same ball park.

Problem with taking an actual true census is many gays and lesbians still will not admit (on government paper anyway) what their orientation is. Many like the annonimity they have. Not all gays are in your face types. In fact, most are not.

Just my 2 cents...

As far as "Dirt" is concerned, the show is full of "filth." That is what much of the plot revolves around. The show is about a sleezy tabloid after all. If you took the time to watch the show, you'd see it does not "glorify" sex of any kind. There are consequences to what these people do, most of which are not good. You singled out one scene involving a gay encounter to make your point that Ford is "promoting" the "homosexual agenda". My point is this is not the case. They chose to advertise during a show with adult content to reach those who want to watch an adult show. You'd have had better luck showing a link between advertising and "Will and Grace".

This, I agree with. Not all homosexuals are extremists and 'in your face'. Great point!!

You said:

Exactly. I am simply just adding on to the facts about Ford's target audience. Previous posts on my blog about Ford explain further.

You asked:

"What did you think of Tyler's assertion about the balloons at the Ford dealership?"

I would have to ask the dealership if their intentions of a rainbow colored display of balloons was to signify the stereotypical "gay" colors. It could be just coincidence or it could not be.

To get to the bottom of it, I think I will call the dealership and ask this question to get their side of the story before suggesting facts.

I will have to disagree with Tyler on his assumptions that the color display WAS to signify gay pride/themes before questioning the dealership themselves about what their intentions were.

Tyler, do you have the location of the Ford dealership so I can follow up on this?

It's Victory Ford in Stoughton, Mass.

Victory Ford

I'm willing to be wrong, but that would certainly be the perception by many members of the community!

Homosexuality is no more "unatural" [sic] than heterosexuality. As Dorothy Parker once said, "Heterosexuality isn't normal, it's just common."

Basically the point was that heterosexuality is no more "normal" than homosexuality. It's just more common. Just because it is "common" doesn't make it more "normal". Exactly what is "normal" anyway? Who gets to decide? Since homosexuality happens, and there are gay people practically everywhere, wouldn't that make homosexuality "normal" by any standards?

O.K., juxtapose that to the fact that there are many pedophiles and rapist and murderers practically everywhere, wouldn't that make these behaviors "normal" by any standard?

Do you see how your question does not make sense?
