Lucky Charms is launching its second #LuckyToBe campaign, celebrating individuality, diversity and inclusiveness and encouraging fans everywhere to share why they are #LuckyToBe.
Shouldn;t they call it Lucky AIDS or something?
I am one that usually reads the food labels and one I will be looking to avoid is “General Mills.”
My username is boycott. They should look up what that means. I will encourage others to do the same.
Pouring sugar on sodomy doesn’t make it healthy.
To be fair, this is not obviously pro-gay. Perverts will see the rainbow and tone as an endorsement, but a child could watch it and see pretty colors. I wouldn’t boycott over just this.
The activist homosexual agenda is destroying this country.
I’m not sure.
That video is leaning toward endorsing, but never really endorses homosexuality.
Depending on the other materials (commercials, etc) and where they’re run I don’t see a huge issue - just from that MTV.
There’s a screen shot with four women, but it is all done somewhat abstractly.
That’s not to say there’s not a lot of symbolism in the bit. Lots of multi-colored rainbows. But I don’t think it’s blatantly pro-gay.
Marginally yes. But it seems to be tasteful about it.
General Mills statement on “diversity”
They have a partnership with Betty’s Family LGBT Network
Nowhere in their diversity statement do they say “religion”
It’s race, sexual orientation and gender. I am not kidding.
I’m just presenting an opinion.
It does tend to favor homosexuality, and I can completely understand how many could strongly oppose it.
I am just saying from my standpoint, it is (marginally) on the ok side of the line. For me anyway.
Contradictory viewpoints are of course welcome.
It is pro-gay. I personally do not find it offensive, though I can certainly understand how you or anyone could.
I never said it was offensive. I am only pointing out that General Mills thinks diversity on what people have sex with is somehow far and above more important than religion.
Just for the record, here is the video once again:
Like I said, it no doubt contains a message. I think it is marginally ok, though many will not agree. I don’t find it strongly offensive.
I am just expressing one opinion.
At one time I had a list but it got so long so quickly that I just gave up.
I do sometimes remember a particularly egregious company every now and then while shopping.
I admit that as a young dumb individual I remember the Anita Bryant controversy and taking a dim view of her. Fortunately, that was one pivotal incident in developing an ability to recognize the tactics of the gay mafia including their media arm.
We quit buying all GM products a long time ago. Only Post and Kellogg’s.
So now if we’re against sodomy, we’re bigots. /s
What a freak. The guy in the picture, not you Ouchthatonehurt.
Last year that was the thing that made me stop eating General Mills products, all of them.
Revolting. Just revolting.
Well they do have rainbow marshmallows.....
General Mills has risen imo due to them going with non-gmo grains but they just lost this customer. Not that I buy cereal but if one day I did I would leave GM on the shelf.
Its race, sexual orientation and gender. I am not kidding.
Diversity statement: We cultivate an inclusive environment by considering all dimensions of diversity not just the primary areas such as gender, race and sexual orientation but also cultural aspects including values, preferences, beliefs and communication styles.
So, not just gender, race, and sexual orientation.
What kind of beliefs? Belief in UFO’s? Tooth Fairies? My Little Pony?
I don’t know how you derive anything about religion out of that phrase.
What does children’s cereal have to do with gay sex?
How very sad!
When someone asks me about my beliefs, I share the good news of Jesus Christ.
When someone asks you about your beliefs, apparently you talk about UFOs and Little Pony.
Simple marketing. There are more gays than anti-gay Christians.
