Recently Oreo cookies released a rainbow ad in support of LGBT rights & solidarity. It looked kinda like this, but just the rainbow cookie and date:
(not actual ad, but close enough)
Facebook and twitter exploded in support for Oreo.
1. Oreos are delicious.
2. Rainbow Oreo is a clever ad, with a positive political spin.
Naturally, the virus of faith-based hate reared its reactionary head, with theistic legions declaring a cookie boycott. That they’d never eat another Oreo cookie again!
I have two responses for this. First, for every Oreo they don’t eat, we should eat 3.
Second, I want to help them. I understand they wish to let corporate America know they won’t patronize their products and services because of “the gay agenda.”
So here’s a helpful list of a few companies todays modern fundamentalist consumer needs to avoid products from:
Gerber Baby Products
Proctor and Gamble
Walt Disney Company
It’s a helpful list for the bigoted believer in your life. They can call up Oreo’s headquarters on their iphone..wait no…their droid…wait no…..windows phone..wait no…..their landline? And complain!
Better not post about a complaint on facebook though (founded by an atheist), and definitely not using a Mac or Windows based computer….
Also, here’s a handy starter list for companies with a not so stellar record on supporting civil liberties for their fellow humans:
