    Sochi Ice Skating Gay Rights Video

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6AeqOFo7MRw

    I hope we get to see this for real in Sochi. The kiss, not the repression.

    what a deliberate yet ignorant video

    notice they use two women kissing because if it was two men this would get an even lower support
    women in Russia kiss on the lips as acts of friendship, so I didnt get what this convey
    was it a video or a western lesbian porn fetish ?

    the vidoe is a joke

    They used two women kissing either because that's how the ad worked out. it's interesting the first thing that came to mind for you is lesbian porn though......

    of course it has to be two women where in many parts of Europe it is common
    or in North America it is asociated with lesbian fetish

    chickening out ? use two men instead !

    Wow that's a crazy thing to say, in everywhere it's associated with lesbian fetish but I think that kiss could never be classified as porn. I was commenting on how you must spend a good deal of time thinking of things such as lesbian fetishes and porn for that to be the first thing to spring to mind....

    Oh, whatever. If they used 2 men, you would have still found some criticism. So you're saying that the message doesn't get across because it will be interpreted as 2 women doing something commonplace or fulfilling some lesbian fetish? Or maybe you were hoping to see 2 guys kiss?

    It's a well done commercial.

    I wonder what the target audience of this ad is, and what the folks who made it want the viewers to think about or to do.

    I am trying to imagine the reactions a typical straight American male might have to the ad. I came up with these:

    1. Aww, young love. Isn’t that sweet.

    2. I wouldn’t mind kissing both of them.

    3. I wish some pretty girl would look at me the way that skater is looking at her girl friend.

    I doubt they will be able to air it publicly in Russia where minors could see during the Olympics.

    Really, was/is there ever any lesbian/lesbians in figure skating?

    the targeted audience is for the heterosexual male with lesbian fetish

    I don’t think fetish is the right word. Heterosexual men are attracted to women. So it does not seem weird that a woman might be attracted to women, too. Women are, well, attractive. What is truly bizarre (not that anyone is complaining) is that women are attracted to men.

    You're ridiculous. So... if it was two guys then the target audience would have been a heterosexual female with a M/M "fetish"? And any pro-LGBT ad that shows two people of the same gender kissing is to be considered straight fodder for some gay or lesbian fantasy?!

    Homosexuals loving each other is not something to be "fetishized" and isn't some sexual "fad" or "behaviour". If an ad showed a white woman kissing a black man, you wouldn't say something stupid like the ad is targeted towards an audience with an "interracial fetish".

    I don't think anyone would waste their media dollars airing that in Russia anyways. It's like airing an ad for a steakhouse in a country full of vegetarians.

    And yes, there are lesbians in figure skating. This may come as a huge, non-stereotypical, non-gender normative, mind-blowing surprise to you, but there are lesbians in every sport with females in it.

    Also, in case you weren't aware, there are also straight male figure skaters, too.

    Hah, I love that episode, and that clip is brilliant. It points out all the absurdity of it all. "I thought my straightness was a phase" "How long have you known you were straight?", which obviously pokes fun at how ridiculous it is in a gay context. Sometimes just interchanging "gay" with "straight" is enough to point out the hole in a homophobe's comments. One of my favourites is when a straight male co-worker asked me "Well, if you've never been with a woman, how do you know you're gay?", to which my obvious answer was "Well, if you've never been with a man, how do you know you're straight?"
