I see the OP's point...the commercial basically says "You don't want to be this disgusting vile creature...do you?". But in the world of anti-smoking, anything is fair. Not in my mind but in the hugely profitable anti-smoking crowd. Yes, smoking is bad for you and a dirty habit especially when the smoker doesn't act appropriately around others. Stand off a ways and only smoke where permitted, don't throw your butts on the ground, etc.

But what other legal action receives this type of attack commercial? I can't think of any. It is one thing to say "smoking is gross" it is another to say "people who smoke are gross". Not a very fair world is it.

Although I can't personally understand how it is to have a colostomy. I do understand how it's offensive to you. I'm disabled and get this all the time. As if what I have is so " awful". Gee thanks for telling me how awful it is, I was feeling ok until you said it was awful, if I'm perceived that way to them. It took me a very long time to feel comfortable in public, now I don't care.

I try to get that they don't get it, I wouldn't either, before this happened to me. We are all ignorant until something happens to us,

Good luck with the reversal surgery. My dad got his reversed.

That's the thing where you are this disgusting creature, it feels horrible.

I do still feel uncomfortable with people seeing my handicap aids.
