Pork, Eggs, and Milk

I have this idea percolating, and I wonder if it could work.  Here's what I'm a thinking.  Remember when pork, eggs and milk were considered to be non-healthy food choices?  Even after eggs were clearly shown to have no effect on blood stream cholesterol, doctors were still wary about endorsing the eating of eggs.  What to do, what to do?  Brilliant ad-men came up with the idea of blitzing our media sources with campaigns showing us rank and files that eggs, pork and milk were all good for us!  Everyone remembers these tag lines: "The incredible, edible egg",  "Got milk?", and of course, "Pork, the other white meat."  

Now its a true hard case, that isnt moved by the sight of a pretty child.  Most all humans love children, and watching them at play, laughing, sleeping will bring a smile to the face of even the most hardened of hearts.  And I think that's the place that GLBT need to strike, with the face of children.  Read my idea for an ad campaign.  This campaign would run with separate ads for boys and girls.

You were there when he was born.

His first tooth.

That first step.

The tear laden first day of kindergarten. 

You've been there through nightmares and skinned knees,

fights with friends, sleepless "sleep overs"

and countless days of laughter and hugs.

Won't you be there for him now, when he comes to you with the scariest thing in his young life?  
This isn't something he "chose", in fact he would do anything for this not to be happening to him.  He's your son, and he's gay.  Now show him the depth of your love for him, and accept him as he is. Now more than ever, he needs you.   Don't let you son become a statistic.  If you need help in how to talk to him about being a gay teenager, please call xxx-xxx-xxxx or visit our website,
