How dare Ford not promote a$$ fXXking? I mean really.... What's the world coming to when a major auto manufacturer can't condone and normalize deviant sexual behavior?

I for one refuse to purchase toe nail clippers from any company who does not openly promote incest.

Wow, this news really rocks my world.

I could give a big shit who advertises to gays, blacks, Buddhists, Madonna fans or anyone else different than myself.

Seriously, does this affect you in any way whatsoever?

I happen to drive a Ford, and it didnt' become more or less gay by this news. It's still a piece of crap.

One woman in the Ford family is out and proud and Bill Ford Jr. is a liberal running Ford into the ground. Henry II would kick his punk ass for what he has done to a once great car company...

I wouldn't get too excited - can you really believe ANYTHING that Ford says when they claim to build "the best cars and trucks in America" in the same paragraph?

Bad move on Ford's part. Gays are typically high income earners. Oh well, Ford won't have this dillema for long as they will be defunct in 10 years.

Blah, blah, blah...I wish people would get over trying to define their being by their sexual actions and trying to make people accept what they want to do as ok.

In the bedroom and should stay there. Period. I don't need to hear about your sexual antics, nor do I feel you need to know about mine. Freakin emotionally immature people all over the place.

Gays generally = big money, and they are far more willing to spend it on luxuries than we are... It's silly for any company, especially those with financial problems, to not market to this segment.

The author had it CORRECT WHEN s/he posted it. It's just that Ford found out that it was a BAD idea. And reversed it's original decision.

Not to mention, that we TEND to (largely) be a tight-knit community, and when we SAY we will/won't purchase "X" we DO/DON'T - too damn much peer pressure.

Walking out to parking lot, (Pam)"Hey, Susan, WTF are you doing with a new Ford? Didn't you know that's a ?" (Susan) "Oh, uh, yeah, umm... I bought it before they called for a boycott, saw the ad in Curve..." (Pam) "I don't think so, I saw you last week in your old Subaru. Call me when you get a real car from a company who acknowledges we exist, and who appreciate our business. Later.

That's because gays know they live pointless childless lives with shorter lifetimes, so they better spend their money while they can! I guess Ford (and especially their Volvo unit) wants to pump those gays for all their worth.
