America is a funny old place at times. Where the “junk food” society is taking over. Marketing and hype change opinions more than society and logic. A place where somebody will create a petition of near 12,000 signatures (to date), against a company called General Mills, who create such products as Jus-Rol, Betty Crocker, Green Giant, Pillsbury, Old El Paso and Cheerios, thus meaning millions of Americans might die, and why??? Because the company says that it “respects” equality, even on the grounds of “sexual orientation”, thus backing gay marriage.
In that case, I say STARVE yourselves you bigots or become obese on the foodstuff of corporate America and leave some space on the planet for the more tolerant and intelligent!!!
The company policy goes beyond that though. This is what they say, “We cultivate an inclusive environment by considering all dimensions of diversity – not just the primary areas such as gender, race and sexual orientation – but also cultural aspects including values, preferences, beliefs and communication styles.”
In case you want to now start choosing their products to show support for the company, this is the current list of global brands…
Betty Crocker, Big G cereals, Bisquick, Bugles, Cascadian Farm, Cheerios, Chex, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Diablitos Underwood, Fiber One, Food Should Taste Good, Frescarini, Fruit Snacks, Gardetto’s, Gold Medal, Good Earth, Green Giant, Häagen-Dazs, Hamburger Helper, Jus-Rol, Kix, Knack & Back, La Salteña, Lärabar, Latina, Liberté, Lucky Charms, Macaroni Grill, Monsters, Mountain High, Muir Glen, Nature Valley, Old El Paso, Pillsbury, Pillsbury Atta, Progresso, Total, Totino’s / Jeno’s, Trix, V.Pearl, Wanchai Ferry, Wheaties, Yoplait and Yoplait France.
On the other hand, in the interest of equality, which is what it´s all about, if you would like to sign the protest petition, you can do so on this link… http://www.dumpgeneralmills.com/?REF=EB120625NANT (No, you can´t click. You will have to learn to copy and paste. I don´t want to make it too easy). Oh, and they are having a rally too!!!
Ho, ho, ho… The Green Giant has never been so diverse 🙂
(I resisted posting the picture of Chris Brown as the Green Giant as it´s rather rude!!! Google it if you like but know that it´s a lycra onesy!!!)
