This line of thinking has NO PLACE in Canada (or anywhere else in the world):
Click the image to read the whole disgusting thing. This ad appeared in the National Post today, and they’re “investigating” how it was approved. Apparently organizations that purchase full page ads can somehow do so without anyone actually, you know, READING them to see what they’re all about. Who cares, if they’ve got the money? Not the National Post!
That ad is so unbelievably offensive that I’m honestly having a difficult time processing it. “Canadian Values”? Not in MY Canada. My Canada doesn’t discriminate or spread hateful messages under the guise of “family values”. My Canada doesn’t think girls are morons who can’t handle and process information. My Canada is not homophobic, transphobic, or ignorant, and I am disgusted, enraged and horrified that something so fundamentally baffling, heartbreaking and AWFUL could exist in MY Canada.
OpenFile has a write up on the ad and the response from National Post, as well as the reaction from Twitter. Check it out. If you are angry, say something. This idiocy has NO PLACE in our Canada. Let’s turn the tables on the bigots and make THEM the “those people” – discriminate against the ignorant and hateful. Let’s see how they like it.
If there was any one thing that would make me change my mind about Team No Babies, it’s stuff like this – I’ve got half a mind to procreate out of sheer spite, just so I can raise an army of little Kimlis who are informed, armed with logic and love, and raised to hate only Cheez Whiz.
