Nice. I hope it makes a few bigoted heads explode.
Of course we should! We’re at the beginning of the fight for equality.
Meanwhile back at One Million Moms, they type away furiously on the internet, boycotting Honey Maid. Nobody listens. They do it anyway.
Does One Million Mom hate their gay children?
Anywho, hats off for Honey Maid.
They are just doing it to sell you shit you don’t need. They would cheat you if they could.
@DCFarmboi: Well, they definitely are doing it for the profit. But that doesn’t change the fact that adding gay people and families into these commercials familiarizes a large audience with the concept and makes it less abstract and scary/offensive to them.
That’s definitely the kind of exposure the LGBT community needs, so I say it’s a win/win situation.
Yes, we can stop praising these companies as soon as other people stop complaining to them.
But then GLAAD and HRC would be out of jobs…..ooops….
@balehead: I for one would love to see the day when GLAAD and HRC are no longer necessary. Unfortunately it is troglodytes such as yourself that tend to pop out the most offspring and then proceed to indoctrinate them in your bigoted ways. So I suspect that we will always be in need of these groups and others like them to fight for the equal rights of ALL. Just go back under your rock. We are not amused or interested.
“Call me cynical, but I’m ready for the day when diverse families just become the norm in advertising without the ensuing media circus carefully designed to spike sales.”
I get what the author is saying here, but the only reason I think we need to keep pointing it out. Is that when we are silent nothing changes. We were quiet when groups like HRC were demanding gays shut up and not bother democrats because they were our friends. We got nothing. As soon as we started yelling at them, suddenly they finally moved on our rights.
Pointing out when a company like Honey Made does something like this makes it more obvious that others aren’t. If we say nothing, then there is no reason for them to do it. It may be cynical but so what, Lets say a company stops discriminating against racial minorities because it is good business, or they do it because it is the right thing to do. Either way, they’ve stopped discriminating.
