The fallout following pasta titan Guido Barilla's comments on Italian radio in which he said the company would never feature a gay family in its advertisements keeps on spreading. "I would never do (a commercial) with a homosexual family, not for lack of respect but because we don't agree with them. Ours is a classic family where the woman plays a fundamental role," Barilla said, adding that gays should find another brand of pasta to support if they didn't agree. The Italian company and its U.S. division have since apologized for Mr. Barilla's comments, and while a few carbo-loading Barilla supporters are cleaning out store shelves at this very moment, several people have been left feeling angered not only by the pasta executive's remarks, but also by Barilla's initial apology, in which the company emphasized that its executive meant only to say that "the woman plays a central role in a family." Some al dente sentiment, gay pasta porn, and even an admonishment from Sally Jesse Raphael, straight ahead.












Translation: "To us, it doesn't matter with whom you do it, it only matters that you do it al dente"




























Translation: Barilla Pasta is already too expensive.
