Sticking a Phallic Object Between Your Lips IS GAY!

If you’ve seen MTV’s “Truth” campaign lately, you can see why young people are growing immune to anti-smoking messages. Fake job interviews for Big Tobbaco? Boring! Which is why it’s lovely to see The Onion‘s report on the CDC’s new anti-smoking effort, which keeps kids away from cigarettes by warning them it’ll make ’em look gay. Need ideas for celebrity spokespeople? Call us, CDC!

      Ok, I get it, they are trying to get kids to not smoke. Does this make us look stupid? In a way, yes. I quit smoking about 13 years ago. Smoking did not make me gay, nor did it make me lust for the same sex. If I quit that long ago, does that make me straight? NO it sure doesn’t. Being gay is not a shameful lifestyle, nor does it need to provoke violence. I was gay, way before I ever started smoking, but that is my dilemma with this. I know it’s good for the kiddies to not want to smoke, and this seems like the only way to curb them from smoking. But being gay is not something that we should look upon badly, or negatively. Smoking is the negative bad thing that anyone can do, but it does not make them gay.

      Kris — it’s satire. They aren’t trying to get kids to not smoke, they are making fun of so-called “news” broadcasts and their public interest segments and the campaign against smoking. Haven’t you ever read The Onion?

      … You realize this is from The Onion, right? It’s a satire. They’re not actually saying smoking is gay.

      The Onion is satire, folks. Satire, satire, satire. It pokes fun at everyone and everything. I see this ad as poking fun at male insecurities about their sense of sexual self.
