This is an ad made by the International Gay and Lesbian Association about same-sex parenting. Take careful note of the minimalist decor, the civilised domestic performance of spaghetti eating (is that a spot of basil pesto on that fork?) and the well-tailored look of all three protagonists. Now listen to the civilised voiceover with its reassuring pedagogical message of ‘difference’:
“Children of homosexuals do not necessarily become homosexuals.”
I made a new category specially for this post. It’s called the “First Up Against the Wall Department.” Because in the event of a revolution, an uprising or even a little day-trip to Belgium, where ILGA is based, these people would be. Although I think we could come up with something a great deal more painful than shooting, don’t you?
