Is it just me, or does it seem outrageous to compare gay people to people with physical deformities? Sorry Allstate, but you REALLY missed the mark. This ad depicts a person living a life as an outsider suffering from sadness and isolation. I find this abhorrent. As a gay man I prefer not to be reminded of what it was like to be in the closet. Why not show someone celebrating the joy of living an out proud life, blending in with the rest of the people in his surroundings? I'm so appalled by this imagery, suggesting we're some sort of mutants who don't fit in, until we find solace in another mutant. This is so offensive it's astounding!
