I lived here (In nearby Berkely actually) for three months over the summer, and always found it amusing/surreal that advertisements on the commuter train encouraged gay people to adopt children. Though personally amiable to the idea of gay adoption, I was disturbed by its slogan - 'I felt proud[This was in pink] when I adopted -->Insert minorities name here<--' the picture had two extremely gay looking adults (Men or women) holding a smiling black child. There was something extremely wrong with their advertising process. Anyone else agree? MarcusCicero 10:58, 25 November 2008 (EST)

On one hand it sounds a bit "PC", but on the other hand, information is missing. Perhaps the majority of children awaiting adoptive placement in the SF area are minorities, so the ad is simply representative of the likely reality? The "extremely gay looking" part is funny, both in that it may have been an intentional perpetuation of stereotypes, and that you perceived it that way. ħumanUser talk:Human 17:59, 25 November 2008 (EST)
