Gamble Produced a Magazine Ad Showing Two Gay Men in Bed-Truth!
Summary of the eRumor The eRumor is from the
American Family Association and says that Procter & Gamble has
published a print ad that shows two men in bed after an apparent
The email encourages a boycott of Procter & Gamble for the ad
and for other statements in support of homosexuality.
Another email campaign urged protest against Procter & Gamble
for advertising on the "Will and Grace" television show as
well as "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.".
The ad is real.
It is for a Procter & Gamble product called Downey Wrinkle
It's a two-page ad that includes a picture of a string of men's
clothes on the floor marking a trail to a bed in which two men are
shown embracing, but under the covers.
Procter & Gamble says the ad appeared in a Canadian magazine
several years ago but was pulled.
The ad has been archived by The Commercial Closet, an organization
that keeps watch on gay advertising.
According to a columnist with The Commercial Closet, Procter &
Gamble has been venturing into advertising in the gay community and
targeted to gays.
In June, 2001, a Procter & Gamble Head & Shoulders dandruff
shampoo ad ran on a gay website showing two attractive men saying,
"He's one" and "So is he" then the caption
"They are, too!"
But the punch line was "Proud Head & Shoulders users."
The Commercial Closet also says Procter & Gamble ran another ad
for their Physique hair care product that asked, "Can you keep
it up for hours? Try the new Physique Styling Stick."
Procter & Gamble has also put advertising dollars into
"Will and Grace" and "Queer Eye for the Straight
Guy," according to the Commercial Closet.
This eRumor also makes reference to the controversy in Cincinnati
regarding a gay supported city ordinance and Procter & Gamble's
support of it. CLICK HERE for more
details on that story.
A real example of the eRumor as it has
appeared on the Internet:
YOU WOULD NOT BELIEVE THIS ABOUT PROCTER &
GAMBLE, SO WE INCLUDED THE PROOF!
Suppose I told you Procter & Gamble created and
ran an ad that showed two men (in fuzzy focus at top center of the
ad) in bed after an apparent sexual encounter.
Suppose I told you the ad showed clothing scattered across the floor
like the two men were in a hurry to get undressed and get into the bed.
Suppose I told you the P&G ad was captioned with these words:
"You were more concerned with taking them off than folding them
up." (In other words, the two men just could not wait to get
into bed to have homosexual sex.)
Suppose the ad goes on to say that you can use Downy Wrinkle Release,
a P&G product, to unwrinkle your clothes left on the floor in your
haste to get into bed.
Suppose I told you this ad, which leaves the impression that
homosexual sex is normal, thrilling and exciting, was created by P&G
and run in a homosexual publication called Xtra.
There should be no doubt P&G is aggressively promoting the
homosexual agenda. A company doesn't create and run an ad that leaves
the impression that homosexual sex is thrilling and exciting unless they
support the homosexual agenda.
It should come as no surprise when P&G supports homosexual marriage.
This is the company that has aggressively come out in favor of repealing
the law in Cincinnati which forbids giving homosexuals special rights,
but at the same time has refused to support the Ohio Marriage
Protection Amendment which defines marriage as being only between one
man and one woman.
Remember, this is the company that said they "will not tolerate
discrimination [against homosexuals] in any form, against anyone,
for any reason." To keep homosexuals from being legally married
is discrimination [for good reason] that P&G says they will not
American Family Association is asking individuals to:
(1) Boycott three products of P&G — Crest toothpaste, Tide
detergent, and Pampers diapers. (Make sure your replacement is not a
P&G product. Look on the back of the product.)
(2) Call Chairman A.G. Lafley at 513-983-1100 and politely let
him know that you are participating in the boycott and will ask others
to do the same.
