Campbell's soup recently launched an advertisement in conjunction with the new Star Wars adaptation featuring an adorable kid eating soup for dinner. He's got two loving parents who care enough to feed him properly and that should be the end of it right?
Well, it's not. And no surprise, conservative morons from all across the ugly Republican party are butting heads with people over the AD, which they claim, "promotes an unnatural image."
The title of the AD is, "Campbells #RealRealLife"
Which makes sense, considering there are over 40,000 families in the United States that consist of this "two dad" dichotomy, and they seem to be doing just fine.
The Ad in question is just like any other heartwarming Campbell's add, where a loving family is enjoying the wholesome, nutritious soup that the company has always provided. Not a long shot, that even gay people...yes. Even they can enjoy Campbell's soup and provide a good, loving home to their children.
Stephen Colbert referenced the ad in a small way on the Late Show. He called the ad powerful and heartwarming...just like any other commercial.
He called the product integration of Campbell's and Star Wars more unlikely than the idea of having two dads. Kind of brilliant right?
One Million Moms, a conservative group founded on a whole lot of bigotry and hatred, "This gay inclusive commercial is attempting to desensitize viewers by promoting an unnatural marriage."
My question is, who gets to tell people what's natural and what's not?
What conservative groups like "One Million Moms" and others miss, is the fact that this kid is lucky enough to have two loving parents that are willing to spend their time playing games with him. Orientation has nothing to do with it.
These groups should be focusing on promoting more things like this, to show that no matter what your family looks like, or what the hell gender your parents are...it doesn't matter, as long as they're good parents and their kids are being taken care of.
These are the things that matter: safety and happiness. This kid looks really safe, and really happy. So what's the problem?
There isn't one.
