Hunky Banned Safe Sex Couple Become Foster DILFs

Earlier this year Michael O’Brien and Anthony Gillespie found themselves in the middle of an Australian free speech dispute when their poster for the “Rip and Roll” safe-sex campaign got censored by an ad agency from appearing on Queensland local bus stops. When the ad agency realized that all the complaints against the campaign had come from a local Christian group rather than real people, they took back their decision to censor the ads and started running them as originally planned.

Anyway, the couple of about six and a half years are becoming foster parents for a nine-year-old boy. “We decided to change the life of a child that needed rescuing and we hope to formalise our family through marriage soon,” O’Brien said.

Smart, sensitive, safe, and sexy. Go DILF, Go!

    Does the second sentence in this story mean anything? I don’t think so. Here it is:

    “When the ad agency realized that all the complaints against the campaign had come from a local Christian group rather than real people.”

    THANK YOU timncguy. Honestly, I love QUEERTY for posting great stories, but 9th grade English students have more written finesse than the editors here. Yeesh!

    :O I’m jealous of their son now lol! But yeah good for them :)
    Btw did they get to un-ban their ads?

    @timncguy: Thanks for catching that. Morning editing sucks. And btw, did you just give props to yourself for catching an error? How very… interesting.

    I’m not sure I could foster. In most cases, you have to look at the reality that there is a very good chance that eventually one of the parents will want their child back or that someone in the parent’s family will want the child. In those cases, it normally never ends well for the foster parents.

    Sexy ad. Foster parenting is a valuable social service, and straight couples usually aren’t willing to do it.

    I had no idea they were a real couple. It was a beautiful ad, I think.
    Great “end” (of sorts) to the story.
    Thanks for posting this…

    @Daniel Villarreal: No that second post wasn’t me. Someone just borrowed my identity.

    @Daez: Unless it’s a foster-to-adopt, you should always assume that Fostering is a temporary situation. That doesn’t make it less valuable. Think about the hard times in your own life, and how even a brief contact with good person helped you carry on.

    @Abirdwillingtobeitself: Well that is a suckie thing to say. Since gays and lesbians make up approximately 5% of the population, even if g/l rate for foster parenting is twice the rate of straights, 90% of all foster parents are straight. Any sincere person, gay or straight, signing up for foster parenting, is a hero. No need to besmirch straight foster parents to make gay foster parents look better — kids without homes need each and every willing foster parent. Cheers to all foster parents.

    @Sebizzar: I live in Brisbane where the add was displayed all through the city. it was taken down by the add company for a few days but there was such a huge outcry about the removal that it was put back up within a coup,e of days. The ironic thing was that the campaign was about to end when the adds were taken down (due to a very small minority complaining) and so the campaign was extended by a couple more weeks free of charge.

    @Andrew: Oh ok good to hear! Thanks :]

    @timncguy: …thats a coma not a period after the word “planned”…therefore, your statement makes no since. Even though this site has the worst writers in the world apparently..I’m seventeen years old and i write better than these people…when i need to, dont use this comment as an example
