German Funeral Directors Sell Controversial 'Gay Coffins' for Homosexuals

German funeral directors will soon start selling 'Gay Coffins' targeted specifically at homosexual men. The coffins will be decorated with a posh, plush interior and feature homoerotic artwork on the outside.

I honestly didn't know what to think when I first heard about these Gay Coffins. The designers Mike Konigsfeld and Tom Brandl are a gay couple who say that the coffins will tap into the spending power of other gay couples.

Implications - Personally, I think people of all sexual orientations should use similar, if not identical, coffins. I don't even know what a queer coffin entails. How is it any different from a standard coffin other than its name?
