Janet Porter of the right-wing group Faith 2 Action already wants consumers to punish Facebook, Google, Target and Disney for the companies’ stands on LGBT issues, and now she is adding Tylenol to the list.
Porter said she will no longer take the pain relief pills, despite the headaches she experiences as a result of gay rights victories, after the company launched an ad that includes a lesbian couple.
Their campaign to redefine the family is giving me a headache–but I won’t be taking Tylenol.
We’ve all seen the beautiful Norman Rockwell paintings of a family around the Thanksgiving table. Well now, Tylenol is trying to normalize two lesbians, an ex-husband, and another adult acting as parents. The voiceover says, “Our definition of family is now expanding and blossoming so it’s not this rigid, fixed picture…”
Apparently the ideal of a mom and a dad is too rigid for Tylenol. They want to blossom into some kind of group marriage that reflects the desires of adults instead of what every shred of social science research shows is best for children.
No Tylenol, we’re not swallowing the lie.
