Would you either buy or avoid a product based on what you know about the LGBT attitude of the company that produces it?
If so, you might want to contrast and compare the following.
First up is this lovely story in the Dallas Voice about a lesbian who was the "face of Avon" in a Super Bowl ad.
The best part of the story is Daryn DeZengotita's description of the interview/photo session. Hats off to Avon!
Then, there is the winner of the "Art of Manliness" contest sponsored by the makers of Old Spice. Seems the winner and his wife are more than mildly wingnutty. This article explains their connection to an entity called The Vision Forum where, according to the article, one may read that "the absence of biblical patriarchy leads to male effeminacy which leads to homosexuality. The money they won in the contest will inevitably be comingled with this couple's misogynist and homophobic pursuits. Old Spice certainly vetted their candidates in determining the finalists. They cannot reasonably claim ignorance, but even if they did, we can make our position clear by boycotting Old Spice.
Wait a minute. I forgot. Gay men don't use Old Spice. And I doubt many women use it.
(Regarding vintage male fragrance, I still love and occasionally purchase Aqua Velva, the scent of which gets me hard, evoking the men on whom I crushed as a child. I sure hope it's not owned by the Old Spice people. Awkward moral dilemma, if it is.)
Anyone out there use Old Spice? Willing to make a video of you pouring it down the drain? And remember, next time the Avon lady rings your doorbell, show some love.
