Coalition for Marriage Petition

I normally leave more controversial issues to for other people to comment on, this being an account of my visits to various holy places rather than a space for discussion of serious issues. However I understand that this image is considered potentially homophobic and offensive by the ASA. You can read about it here.

Homophobia is defined as fear of or contempt for lesbians or gay men. I’d be very interested if anyone could point out how this “advert” falls within that definition. Whilst I have no fear of or contempt for people with same-sex attraction I am contemptuous of the ASA for not being able to tell the difference between a serious complaint and a silly one.
