STREISAND SLAMS IMPOTENCE ADVERTS (Desperate bid to capture attention of "values voters")
Contact Music ^ | 07/12/2004

Posted on 12/08/2004 12:19:33 PM PST by presidio9

BARBRA STREISAND is sick of advertisments for anti-impotence drugs, deeming them "morally questionnable".

The singer and actress claims Hollywood films hardly ever shape our moral attitudes, unlike commercials for CIALIS, which improves a man's ability to function for up to 36 hours.

She moans, "I resent this thing about Hollywood and moral values. What movies are out now that have questionable moral values?

"You know what I think has questionable moral values? The Cialis commercials."

This from a woman who has caused more than her fair share of E.D.

Streisand and the word "morals" in the same sentence is oxymoronic and ironic, given her total, absolute support of the sexual predator bubba clintoon.

How about the Nicole Kidman movie where there is inference to adult/child sex...

I'm sick and tired of the ED commercials. It's getting so I don't even want to watch TV, period, especially with my adolescent kids around.

Not only that, but isn't she the one who blames Reagan because her gay son died of AIDS? I may be confusing her with someone else.

Come to think of it Babs bears a striking resemblence to that smiling housewife in the Viagra commercials.

I would argue that the filth that Hollywood has been putting out created an enviornment where people would accept sex-aid commercials on television.

Didn't know she had a gay son. Was it by gay Jon Peters who was a hairdresser when she married him? Peters screwed his way to the top of one studio to become its head.

I guess you can't really have a fundamental conversation with someone who doesn't share a basic frame of reference with you.

The real question is, "What movies are out now that have ANY moral values?"

Zinger of the day. But I really do wonder what her moral objection is to men being able to have sexual intercourse with women. Does she get her jollies by mocking impotent men?

I wonder how many people who take Cialis and other similar drugs actually have ED. I know someone who takes just so he can have more sex.

Why would Babs morally object to Cialis commercials? Is she afraid it might be used for sex outside of marriage? Is she disgusted by the idea of older people having sex? Does she want to deny sexual pleasure to men? Does she think impotent men deserve their fate? Just curious . . .

Now that I think of it, Babs probably opposes the Cialis commercials because they are put out by a drug company, and we all know that drug companies are evil.

Probably because she and her hubby tried it and it just couldn't accomplish the impossible like she had hoped.

I finally had to admit that me getting l%#@d always required some kind of drug, usually alcohol - I mean, for the female. I said that to one of my pals at the hardware store. He said, "I might have to try that - because the pepper spray doesn't work."

Alert the media: another thing we agree on.

That is just the... ODDEST commercial. You wonder from what alternate reality it hails. It's like... Ozzie & Harriett Meets Edward Scissorhands, or something.

Hey Babs, ya wanna know why we think Hollywood and your type are so immoral?? Ever hear of "do unto others as you would have them do unto you?" Maybe you can relate with this example: If you are going to preach to people (and Republican Presidents) about how they are destroying the environment, how about taking a look around yourself at your 20,000 square foot palace on the oceanfront in Malibu that is heated in the winter, cooled in the summer (along with your swimming pools, of course) plus gassing up those SUV's you scold us for having but it's just dandy for you to have five of them.

Oh Babs, just go away. You're so tired and so is your career. You've Algored yourself into oblivion.

You know, I just realized a couple of weeks ago... well, okay, my wife told me, but the "wife" on those commercials is actually that same actor.  I find that to be gross.

I'm very conservative, dislike Barbara Streisand, and am also tired of these ED commercials and the commercials for feminine higeine or infections etc.

It all is an attempt to desensitize us and to make the drugs household names and acceptable like asprin or tylenol.

I don't like to have to explain what that stuff does to a young kid who really doesn't need that information yet.

We have restrictions on the content of the shows - why not restrictions on the ads?

Streisand has a son, Jason Gould, from her first marriage with Elliott Gould. Jason happens to be gay, but he's not dead.

Well, actually, I kind of get a kick out of him, but I really like retro.

( I do, however, get tired of seeing those ads every five minutes, though! )


BTW: "Alert the media" is one of the things I say to my daughter...so we have something ELSE in common! LOL!

Stay warm!
