Honda Commercial

I'm sacked out, watching Villanova and Pitt go head to head.

Commerical comes on for a Honda.

Briefly, but certainly, they show two dads and a son. No question, as they have panned from a straight couple with their kid.

Jake says to me, MOM! you gotta blog about that.

Mostly, my heart is warm that he sees the two dads. He sees their son. So many people will miss it.

He saw it all on his own.

So big kudos to Honda for an inclusive commercial.

Very cool - have you seen the backlash yet? The AFA's going to be calling for a boycott any second now...

I'm sure the AFA is all over it.

Tar heels, donald. Tar Heels all the way.

Also, I don't think the AFA will have much influence over this one, since honda put out a commercial a little while ago that had a "creepy-gay" undertone, and then changed the commercial quickly after several complaints, and letters from GLAAD [gay & lesbian alliance against defamation.]

that commercial is here: http://www.commercialcloset.org/common/adlibrary/adlibrarydetails.cfm?QID=165&ClientID=11064

I'm guessing this was a stab in the right direction of being inclusive and equal for them...

*sigh* i'm a little out of touch these days.... do "the gays" still believe that being a better "market" will save us? (This is the first time i've read this blog, but glancing through gay magazines the other day i sure got that impression)

no, I do not believe being a better market means more rights- but having children, having them see something that looks like their own family on television is a big deal.

I think you're right -- it's not "being a better market", but being acknowledged as part of the market.
