eHarmony peeved at Chemistry.com’s pro-gay ads

From http://pandagon.net/2007/05/14/eharmony-peeved-at-chemistrycoms-pro-gay-ads/:

"You might have seen the Chemistry.com’s TV ads that poke at online matchmaking service eHarmony’s straight-folks only policy (apparently gay folks don’t have “29 dimensions of compatibility” that hets do)

"In the ad, a young man flips through what looks like a Playboy mag, kind of bored, and then he says: “Nope,” sighing, “still gay.” And then he’s superimposed with a big red “Rejected by eHarmony” stamp.

"Guess what? eHarmony’s pissed at being called out for discrimination in the ad and is asking media outlets to stop running Chemistry.com’s ads or for the ads to be altered."

"What? Are we surprised at a Clinton/Lieberman drone (Davis) defending eHarmony?

"eHarmony founder Neil Clark Warren is best buds with Daddy Dobson, and claims he’s too ignorant of gay/lesbian relationships to help anyway"
