Homophobia dogs Superbowl: CBS rejects gay ad

So homophobia lives on in the world of sports, and in the Superbowl.  News just trickled in that CBS has rejected an ad from a gay dating site.  Yes, the ad had the audacity to show two men kissing.  I wonder, are there going to be ads showing heterosexual kissing during the Superbowl?  Given Online Booty Call's recent tweet about what team their followers want to see at the Superbowl, I'm assuming so.

Football can certainly be homophobic - but does it have to be?  There are plenty of lesbians and gay men who love sports, are football fans and will be watching the Superbowl.  I don't know that this will do any good, but you can contact CBS corporate and demand an explanation for this.

If you receive a response, and it's that CBS had problems verifying the company's credit status, that's likely bullshit, since the company says it offered to pay cash.

Here is the YouTube video of the ad from ManCrunch.com, the group whose ad was rejected:
