During the holidays, Tylenol began its “For What Matters Most” campaign, which included a lesbian couple preparing a family meal.
Abigail Rockwell narrated the commercial, which was inspired by Norman Rockwell’s famous Thanksgiving painting and featured the Beser Carr Schneider Musich family (video below), noted PhillyMag.com.
According to RightWingWatch.org, Janet Porter, a Christian activist and founder of Faith 2 Action, recently announced that she will stop taking Tylenol pills because of the same-sex ad (audio below).
"Tylenol is trying to normalize two lesbians, an ex-husband and another adult acting as parents," said Porter on her radio commentary this week. "The voiceover says, 'Our definition of family is now expanding and blossoming, so it’s not this rigid, fixed picture.'
"Apparently, the ideal of a mom and a dad is too rigid for Tylenol," added Porter. "They want to 'blossom' into some kind of group marriage that reflects the desires of adults instead of what every shred of social science research shows is best for children."
