There is absolutely nothing on television that is both appropriate for our little girls and interesting to their parents with one exception: Food Network. Cooking shows are our family tv. We love the cake wars, even our 4-year old enjoys Chopped, and the commercials dont make Daddy lunge for the changer while Mommy sings Youre a Grand Old Flag! in plena voce.
Until last night.
A Target commercial came on with a group of actors talking about going to a Christmas party. Then one young man said, with a pronounced gay lisp, that he hoped another man was coming to the party because, Hes HOT! Followed by a very lilting, What-EVERRRRRRRR!
This really makes me mad. I Googled the commercial to see if it made anybody else mad too, and found this surprise: a homosexual blogger upset that Target was using such an embarrassing…f–t stereotype.
So just cut it out, Target. And cut it off, Food Network. Neither of you are making any friends with this nonsense.
