That's right stick to the good old lead paint chips you've been snacking on for 40 years.

"Today we celebrate all families," Honey Maid writes on its YouTube page. "From working moms to two moms; stay at home dads to single dads; adopted kids to surrogate kids. Honey Maid recognizes that the reality of family has changed, but the wholesome connections that all families share will endure.#thisiswholesome"

So how does EDGE know if it was really a same-sex couple? The couple could have been a man with a masculine looking wife or a woman with an effeminate husband. But I guess that in either case it would be close enough for queer propaganda standards.

Oh, honey, put it away. We know you're too poor to buy name-brand products anyway. I'm sure the people at Honey Maid are throwing themselves to the floor and crying their eyes out over the loss of your food stamp dollars.

I, for one, will be stocking up on Honey Maid products!! There's nothing like a S'more made with Honey Maid graham crackers, marshmallows made by gay-friendly General Mills, and chocolate bars made by Hershey's, a company that sponsors its own version of a gay/straight alliance organization for *all* its employees to ensure a safe and welcoming workplace for everyone.

Poor you. I guess you'll never had a decent s'more again. Being a bigot sucks in SO many ways, doesn't it??

I'll be honest: I wonder about these "boycotts," on both sides.
You can't even get 100 Americans together to find legal ways to fight what they see as government injustice; it's a joke. And you really believe these people are actually BOYCOTTING these things? I think *both* sides are full of it, to be frank.
Actually, it's often times just the threat of a boycott and the bad press that it could create that causes the change to happen.

Look what just happened in Arizona. I don't for one second believe that Jan Brewer wasn't just itching to sign that "turn away the gays" law. She's never shied away from signing laws that are destined to bring nothing but lawsuits and the eventual throwing out of the law. It was threats of boycotts that got her attention. When big business threatened to discontinue growth in that state and suggested that their conventions and gatherings would be re-routed to other states that got her to crap her pants enough to veto that law.

It's also why the ridiculous AFA and "One Hundred Angry Stupid Moms" attempts at boycotts DON'T work. Because the companies they focus their hate toward know that they don't have the numbers or the influence outside of their own camp to make any difference.

The numbers are sketchy because Barilla is a privately held company, but you can bet anything that the company's owner backed off from his anti-gay comments so quickly and instituted some efforts into inclusion not because he had a revelation about gay people, but because someone clued him in that gay people buy a LOT of pasta and that he's in a market that already HAS stiff competition. There are more than a dozen different brands of pasta on the shelves at my local grocery. His epiphany didn't come from realizing he was wrong, it came from fear of his sales going down.

I wonder if the Trail Life Boys (the 'new' scouts) will ban s'mores; claiming that Honey Maid is trying to recruit.

Obviously any boy who eats a marshmallow chocolate sandwich made with Honey Maid grahams is going to suddenly start singing show tunes!

Don't be a sore loser, start your own version of the gay scouts. Don't allow anyone to act openly straight.

We have our own version of the gay scouts. It's called The Boy Scouts of America, and membership is open to all, regardless of sexual orientation.

As far as "acting openly straight", those people can't help it, and we understand that. They're recruited at a very young age by older heterosexuals and by the liberal media. We believe in their inherent right to be who they are, and we accept them wholeheartedly even though we can't always understand their feelings or their culture.

No need, we have the Boy Scouts now.

Unlike you anti-gays, we have no desire to discriminate against any kids- gay, straight, or otherwise.

What will the Trail Life dads do when they catch their son's playing doctor in the tents at night?

Uh-oh, they'll have to start ANOTHER anti-gay club, and then ban their own sons from it!

As long as they don't want to be troop leaders. Doesn't sound all inclusive to me.
As for "their feelings or their culture" just look to your parents.

That's just a matter of time, though, as the Disney de-funding announcement, for one, so clearly demonstrated.

The "religious" bigots are the ones who only have the option of starting their own, bigoted group, as everyone said.

The ban on openly gay troop leaders will change soon enough. They'll give them a year to realize openly gay Boy Scouts won't make the sky fall, then they'll extend it to openly gay Scout leaders.

They don't have much choice with all the corporate sponsors that are still pulling funding over the gay troop leader ban.

It's all about the money.

Nope, I only fly the American flag. But that's my choice. In America we still have that.

I do have the little "family stickers" on our vehicles showing 2 dads & their kid. Personally I think all bumper stickers & such are kinda tacky, but our daughter insisted.
