It wasn't very long ago that gays complained about bullying but now that they have the woke upper hand, they are just fine being the bullies.
I have other examples coming in future posts but I will start the thread with this one:
I arrived at the movies early today and sat through a dozen commercials before the previews began. The commercials were promoting products of course, but 3 of them weren't. They were promoting LGBTQ issues because every month is gay pride month. There were no commercials promoting religion, the pro-life movement or the Second Amendment. There were none promoting atheism, the pro-choice movement or more restrictive gun laws.
Why is that? The answer is easy. It's because nobody on either side wants that stuff crammed down their throats when they just paid to be entertained. Nobody wants to pay money to have someone tell them how to feel, think, talk and act. In fact, I've never seen a pre-movie commercial with those 6 other things I listed.
So, how are gays getting away with it? Because they are bullies. As the classic book Animal Farm proves, if a group of living things has an opening to be bullies, they will take it.

ITT: Representing LGBT people in commercials in a positive light is somehow bullying the straights.

Bullies? Animal Farm?

Toughen up.

That would piss me off too but I would remain objective. Not post nonsense .

I have had it with all the stuff you mention. Women 's rights, gay rights, black rights, gun rights and on and on and on.

Its both sides and its horrible. Especially for me because I have no side. So I am hit by both.

You're being bullied by commercials? So anytime anyone ever tell these event where it was a volcano BMW remote movie or commercial that's German car manufacturers bullying me?

I don't want to see commercials for these cars

All animals are equal but some are more equal than others. My guess those that consider 3 commercials in a movie theater "bullying" also consider themselves more equal.

Wow, 12 responses and they all think Roger Duke is stupid. I'm so shocked.
Let's try this. Imagine you go to a movie tomorrow and see 9 commercials advertising products and 3 that didn't . The 3 that didn't were:
1) One with quotes from the Koran claiming homosexuality was a sin.
2) One with quotes from the Bible claiming homosexuality was a sin.
3) One from politicians claiming homosexuality is a cancer.

Recognizing the common denominator is a good first step (y)

These vague "LGBTQ issues" commercials you saw... What is it that they were claiming is a sin/cancer?

Or are you trying to create a false equivalency between bigots saying "You were born a cancer/sinner" and LGBTQ people saying "Nah, we're alright"?

You got the first part right, but I will give you an honest answer. I wouldn't care for it but I sure wouldn't consider it "bullying". I probably would consider a theater that doesn't show those kinds of ads in the future as you are FREE to do. Enough complaints and customers speaking with their wallets and things might change. The theater / movie industry is known for catering the LGBT community especially since many are a part of it. My guess is they would actually lose customers if they aired your examples. Either way it's a free-market enterprise exercising their right to present their product as they see fit. It's not like you went to a bakery, and they didn't sell you a personalized cake because you were gay.

You're crying about commercials. You're bullied by commercials. That's weak.

So that means you would be fine with the 3 commercials I asked about in post #14?

Go back and reread the OP. You have gotten confused somehow.

Would representing religion in a positive light be fine with you? Would you be happy about paying money to see it?

We should force the baker to sell something he doesn't want to sell.
While we are at it, we should force owners of Muslim book stores to sell porn and Bibles.
