Haven't been on for awhile...  
...but this is worth posting...

Got it from Jase who got it from Dennis...

The daytime soap opera “As the World Turns” has had an ongoing storiyline about a young gay couple (Luke and Noah)-- even if you don't watch the show, chances are you have come across mentions of it here on LJ or elsewhere on the net. The couple haven’t kissed since last September; recently they finally did get a couple of kisses on screen and it has caused the AFA (among others) to start a campaign against Proctor and Gamble, the sponsors of the show.

You can read about the American Family Association campaign here:

The AFA were kind enough to include the YouTube video of the kiss scene in their email with the warning "Content is repulsive." (BCH PLZ!)

Procter and Gamble is conducting poll about continuing the Luke and Noah storyline. Even if you don't watch but don't want to surrender to one group's hysterical homophbia and their trying to enforce unnecessary censorship, please call:

1-800-331-3774

Press 2 for the Luke and Noah poll, and then 1 to vote to continue the storyline.

Don't let one section of the population decide what is or is not acceptable to watch--they have the same ability to turn the channel as anyone else does if they don't want to watch something.

The kissing is pretty chaste by soap standards--hardly something to get their collective knickers in a twist. I thought it was very sweet.

Then post this info in your own LJ. That way we can reach more people.

... Do those people by any chance not have an off switch on their television ?

I mean, it could explain why they were forced at gunpoint to watch Teh Gay! I honestly can't see another explanation.

I still can't believe that things like that actually happen in this world. I mean, I know they do, but ... yeah.

Oh, and hi, BTW !

Hey there, D! *hugs*

Y'know...some people just aren't happy unless they are making someone else miserable! :\
