    Wingnuts are never happy. Outrage is their oxygen and how they deal with change of any kind. Except the change that benefits them.

    "Wear your stripes with pride" sounds like something people would say in a country where homosexuality is punished by lashings.

    "...so that all employees can be authentic and fully engaged."~~Kellogg's

    Wow! I mean, They're Great!

    I do like this commercial not so secret frosting on our cake.

    Wingnuts should stop eating Tony's flakes. Maybe there's a homophobic cereal they'd enjoy better. I wonder if Hillshire makes a cereal they can feed to their obese children. Jimmy Dean Frosted Pork Rinds in milk. mmmmmm. Wingnut children will love that.

    Or how about a nice bowl of Sara Lee?

    Great, another product I can't buy since I will never know if I'm buying the product because I actually like it, or if I as a gay man am compelled to buy gay crap...

    I think life was simpler when being gay wasn't a lifestyle choice and was just something you were.

    That's kind of lame ... and it's just an advertising ploy.

    Tony the Tiger once bought me a drink in a gay bar.

    Well, the guy who did his voice did, anyway.

    About time he showed his true stripes.

    I always liked Tony the Tiger, even as a kid.

    He was a big burly athletics-oriented mascot who wanted to help you play your best and be as strong as you could be! And all I had to do was get high on his sugary frosted corn flakes cereal.

    Personally, advertising ploys aside (if that's what some folks see, which is a perfectly valid point of view), I'm happy that another big-name company is coming out (phrasing, boom!) in support of freedom of gender and sexuality. At least they're not against it.

    gives a whole new meaning to "frosted" flakes, doesn't it?

    Well, it's about time Tony came out the closet. However, I still prefer Fruit Loops and Toucan Sam. They have been sporting rainbow pride since before it was cool. Tony and Frosted Flakes are Johnny-Cum-Lately, only jumping on the Gay-Is-Cool Bandwagon when it's a convenient marketing ploy.

    Conservatives will have to add all Kellogg's products to the long list of things they are boycotting, as they grow more and more isolated from mainstream American society.
