Snickers defines a "real" man

Good fricken ass lord. Ya'll remember that Snickers commercial from the Superbowl with the two men who kissed and then beat the crap out of each other? Well, evidently Snickers wasn't done with their mysogenistic queer-baiting.

I realize that nothing announces "Hey I am a gay man!" in the commercial, but give me a break. The stereotyping is as plain as the nose on my face (not to be missed by the way). Not to mention the glorification of masculinity being defined by violence against, and the demeaning of, another human being. I won't even get into how much of a textbook example this commercial is of that. Ugh....

Update: It's been pulled.And here is the rest of it.
