hm... with the exception of "That ain't right" (and even that's a stretch), I'm unclear on where the homophobia is. Seems the exact opposite. Maybe the people who criticized have some issues to work out.

I agree and hence the title of my post. Companies fold and buckle over the slightest, even unwarranted criticisms.
