Cottonelle Is Doling Out Some Amazing Responses To Haters Of Their New Ad Featuring A Gay Couple

One of Cottonelle's new "DownThereCare" TV spots includes a gay couple and some people are up in arms about it on Twitter.

The ad features a young man in slacks, dress shirt and a bow tie nervously awaiting a meeting with the parents of his significant other, while a voiceover extols the benefits of Cottonelle's rippled toilet paper in helping you feel clean and confident.

The commercial finishes with the line:

"So before they sit you down, give your booty a confidence boost with cleaning ripples that remove more at once for a superior clean and make you feel like the kind of guy he takes home to mother."

In the 16 second clip, the couple is featured for no more than a few seconds. The fact that they are gay is in no way the focus of the commercial but, as always seems to be the case, some latched onto that one facet in outrage.

There are, of course, some people who simply can't handle the presence of a gay couple in advertising. Cottonelle wasn't having any of it, though, and took a definite stance against the vitriol.

Cottonelle wasn't the only one calling people out for their unwarranted outrage, though.

Some attempted to reason with the offended.

Others chose the more humorous approach.

Inclusion of members of the LGBT+ community in media of any kind, including advertising, is not "pushing the gay agenda," and the only way you could claim it was "in your face" is if you're sitting too close to the TV.

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Those were the days.
