From an opinion piece by Roz Simpson on gayexpress:
From Hell Pizza to Vodka Cruiser, we’re all about the casual sexism, racism, homophobia and transphobia. Say anything about it, and you are descended upon as being some humourless (dyke/lesbian/feminist, usually) who can’t take a joke.
You know what? Enough already.
I’m sick of it. Every time a company makes a crack about a minority, it reinforces the stereotype about that minority. It helps push them back under the radar of respectability. Every time some idiot on the TV gets away with making a “joke” about people who are marginalised, it makes that margin line just a bit thicker. It’s hard enough to move forward as a nation, as a civilisation, without this insidious chipping away at any attempts at progress.
Go read the whole thing. It’s short, but important.
