Kellogg offers up 'gay pride' with your child's breakfast cereal


Conservative groups are taking to social media to criticize a Kellogg ad featuring Frosted Flakes character Tony the Tiger that says, "Wear your stripes with pride," and sponsorship of a gay pride march in Atlanta.

But others are firing back, voicing support for the Battle Creek-based cereal maker.

On its Facebook page, the American Family Association posted an image of the Kellogg ad, with the comment: "Guess who was a huge sponsor of the Atlanta Gay Pride march and festival last month? They even put an ad in the 'Pride Guide.' "

Responses to the post have been supportive of the nonprofit group and Kellogg.

"I guess they just lost our business," one responder posted, while another said, "Good for them."

Mark King, global head of diversity, told the Free Press:

"Kellogg is firmly committed to diversity and inclusion and puts a tremendous amount of effort toward ensuring equality through our policies, benefits and culture. We are honored to have been named a Top 50 company for Diversity by DiversityInc, and for achieving a perfect score on the Human Rights Campaign's Corporate Equality Index."

The news outlets and blogs have been picking up on the controversy.

The christianpost.com reported the company is "experiencing a backlash from Christian consumers," and said AFA responded that it wants companies to "remain neutral" in what it called the "battle over same-sex marriage."

On its website, Kellogg said it is "focused on community development and programs that support diversity" and "we see both diversity and inclusion as key drivers of success," including sponsoring groups for LGBT employees.

The ad shows the word PRIDE in rainbow of colors and touts the company as one of the "Best places to work for LGBT Equality."

It states: "At Kellogg, we're an evolving culture that respect and accepts employees' sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression so that all employees can be authentic and fully engaged."

Kellogg isn't the only cereal maker that has offered gay pride support -- and faced criticism for it.

General Mills, the Minneapolis-based maker of Cheerios, released a commercial with a gay couple and their daughter.

Yeah.

That is direct targeting towards little kids not even old enough to know much of anything beyond their teddy bears.

I don't hate gays and I wish them no harm.

But, this kind of stuff brings on my disgust with them.

Totally and completely unnecessary.

a perfect example of why 90% of people have a problem with them. Be gay all you like, but stop this nonsense.

Reminds me of an old SNL skit. Family at the breakfast table. Dad decides to have a family talk. " Now Billy, masturbation is a perfectly normal thing, everyone does it, nothing to be ashamed of, but please, not at the dinner table. "

Rewind about 40 or 50 years and change "gay" to "black" - if the internet and RR and you guys were around, this exact same thread would probably have been written back then (with the appropriate search-and-replace of "gay" with "black" of course). And we'd be reading it in cultural history classes today.

You guys are totally hilarious.

You can not compare the two on that Jean. That is an insult to Black people I think. One has a choice the other does not. I do not have anything against gays, but when they start trying to push there agenda on my faimily,that is when I will stand up and say no.

If they wanna be gay fine, but why should I half to support and hear about it all the dam time? More importantly why should it be pushed upon kids, just think If everyone where to be gay. I think it's just another fad or it almost seems like in some cases that it's a way to be cool and get attention.

Well, I would normally agree, but I thought the same thing about rap. There's an agenda here and it's been slowly working for the last 20-30 years or so. "Idiocracy" was originally a comedy that has proven to be a documentary, albeit a few hundred years ahead of schedule....

You don't have to listen, why don't you just ignore them. And how are you "supporting them"?
More importantly why should it be pushed upon kids,
Are you afraid they'll "switch"? Why?

And what is that "agenda" exactly?

I see. Did you choose to be heterosexual? Why haven't you "chosen" to be gay? Just to see what it's like?
I do not have anything against gays, but when they start trying to push there agenda on my faimily,that is when I will stand up and say no.
Has anyone in your family been tempted to "switch"? Why or why not?

Homophobes are even more hilarious than Christians. You guys are a total laughing-stock riot.

you're as much of a dolt on this as you are about race.
I've had PLENTY of black friends and even more gay friends in my life. That's not the point. They would find far less backlash if they weren't so "in your face" with their sexuality. I didn't want my kids exposed to the gay agenda, the same as I didn't let my kids get over-exposed to heterosexuality either.
My guess is that you have no children, so your opinion on this is moot.

Then surely you know why your gay friends made the "switch"? If you know so much about the "gay lifestyle" you understand what goes into that choice, don't you? Hint: of course you do.

Tell us about it. Why did they choose and you did not?
That's not the point
I truly am laughing at you, not with you.
