We used the term “Brokeback Marketing” to describe Ford Motor Company’s waffling on whether or not to advertise in gay media. Now, USA Today has stories on the “Brokeback” phenomenon now pervading all of pop culture and the Brokeback humor. These “residuals” from the movie “Brokeback Mountain” are not a great development.
Our favorite, however, is this “Boondocks” cartoon, which we think says it all about the defining deviancy down in masculinity. Also, not a good thing.
