Take a look at this Italian ad, featuring a newborn who really knows how to accessorize:
Pretty startling, isn’t it? The ad, which has appeared in Italian newspapers and on billboards across Tuscany, says, “Sexual orientation is not a choice.” The ads are sponsored by the regional government in an effort to combat homophobia and to promote the Festival of Creativity. Similar ads appeared in Quebec last year; the campaign was developed by a Canadian foundation called Emergence.
Naturally, conservative politicians and the Vatican are not happy. But neither are some gay activists, according to an article in The Sydney Morning Herald:
Wow, “transgender leftist MP”? Maybe homophobia isn’t so rampant there after all.
What do you think: Does the ad simply make a point, albeit provocatively, or does it cross a line?
