I Proudly Support Oreo Because They Proudly Support Equality
I thought nothing of this picture again until just a few minutes ago when I came across an article a friend had shared. I clicked this link and was appalled by what I read there!
Seriously people??!! You are going to boycott all Oreo and/or Kraft products because of this----> picture?? How about General Mills or Starbucks. I bet you didn't realize you would have to also boycott Microsoft, Apple, and Google. Oh, and not to mention that most car companies are also in on this, such as Chevy, Ford, Honda, Nissan, Mitsubishi and even Toyota, you would also have to boycott them. One more thing, that also would mean that you could no longer support your beloved Facebook!!
I understand that everyone is entitled their own opinions but really, I don't understand how you think that boycotting these companies is going to do anything except make you look like a giant asshole. Regardless of whether or not you buy their products, they will continue to thrive. For every single hateful comment I saw, there were at least twice as many supporters. I'd like to showcase some of those wonderful comments now:
It is ridiculous that people think going this route will change the outcome. Oreo is still going to support gay rights even if you boycott their products. Why? Because, if they pulled the ad and went back on that support it would blow up in their face. That would be what really kills their company. So, be ignorant. Keep boycotting. Just means more delicious cookies (as well as other things too!!) for all of us who actually care about equality--and just plain good food!!
