Posted on 06/30/2013 1:31:07 PM PDT by Salman
Lucky Charms is perhaps the perfect cereal to celebrate lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Pride since it already includes a rainbow.
General Mills and advertising agency McCann Always On saw their chance and used the colorful marshmallow as the face of their #LuckytoBe campaign, which asks people to use the hashtag to post pictures and tweets about what makes them, well, lucky.
"We're celebrating Pride month with whimsical delight, magical charms, and two new rainbow marshmallows," the company said on the campaign website. "If you're lucky enough to be different, we're celebrating you."

A children’s cereal, how appropriate for the homos and pedophiles. I just told my son, who likes Lucky Charms, that there will not be anymore in our house.
I keep getting a 404 error when I click on link.
say goodbye general mills
Do they have little Lucky Charms who molest little boys too..waiting to see that one..the worst is seeing these adopted little boys with these homos, we all know what is happening to them behind closed doors
I’m lucky to have seen this posted because I’ll never buy another General Mills product. Recruiting fresh meat for the perverts by pushing the homosexual agenda on the children is despicable.
onwards! rump ranchers!
If you’re lucky enough?
IF YOU’RE LUCKY ENOUGH?!
What kind of bullsh*t world are we living in when this disgustingly immoral perversion that serves ZERO biological function, which condemns people to early graves and dangerous lifestyles, is considered to be ‘lucky’.
Chuck you, Lucky Charms. I will never buy your crap again.
A Bob Grant has always said, it’s sck out there and getting sicker.
Kellogg’s had better not pull some shit like this.
General Mills should come out with a Michael Jackson cereal. Call it Beat It or Billy Jean was my lovah, or Slapping the Monkey.
Kind of wonder who is making these decisions.
If approx (I will be very generous here) 20% of the population is gay, 20% don’t really give a rats arse (which means some will go either way (voting that is))and say 45% of the population would just as soon see this ‘community’ disbanded etc Why would you ‘risk’ 50%+ of your market by catering to the (supposed) 20%?
dang it...beat me to it.....
No more Lucky Charms, I’ll help pass the word around.
Malt-o-Meal has good cereal.
I find it sickening that they have hijacked the rainbow
With all this hype you would think that this nothing but a Nation of Queers!
BTT! I can’t stop laughing at your comment!
Fruit Loops would seem more appropriate.
Indoctrination? Nah....we would be homophobic to suggest such a thing.
Not after the children, naaahhhh...
I was eating lucky charms when I saw this link; I was wondering what was up with the weirdly colored marshmallows.
Gone like the wind...
Now you are going to have kids saying to their parents that they want to be lucky too...and special...and be looked up to and appreciated for being open and every other thing described in this commercial.
I was just on my way to the store. No Cheerios for me.
Now you are going to have kids saying to their parents that they want to be lucky too...
You know that is the whole point.
It’s almost impossible to escape this sick agenda in the modern world.
I SURE DO. Ad execs at Viacom and all of the kids toy manufacturers have just been waiting and frothing at the mouth for the next movement to become accepted so they can create campaigns and ad’s for it....well...I fully expect to see nothing but HUGE gay agenda B.S. even more now since it is legalized by the court regardless of what the voters think.
BLOODLESS COUP. Not a damn thing being done about it either.
Faith and begorrah there are homo’s in my cereal .
I walked away from General Mills when they went pro-sodomy during the Minnesota sodomy vote.
I avoid their products whenever I can in the grocery store. They don’t need my money.
Screw General Mills.
Never will be welcome in this household ever again!
Eat ‘em all up queers!
Celebrating gay Irish fairies.
I own some General Mills stock. Selling this week.
DUMP GENERAL MILLS

I never thought that by eating Cheerios for breakfast I would be supporting gay marriage. Your decision to pander to same-sex marriage activists has forced me to choose between your food products and my conscience. As long as food is produced by other companies my conscience is going to win out over the desire for another bowl of Lucky Charms. Until you stop supporting this radical social agenda I must, in good conscience, look for substitutes that I can purchase instead of the following brands.
Big G Cereals
Old El Paso
Knack & Back
Cinnamon Toast Crunch
Food Should Taste Good
Your diversity policy claims to respect not just the primary areas such as gender, race and sexual orientation but also cultural aspects including values, preferences, beliefs, and communication styles. However, your public opposition to the Minnesota Marriage Amendment overtly disrespects the values and beliefs of many of your employees. To avoid misleading the public and potential employees regarding the true position of General Mills, I ask that you remove this misrepresentation from your website and any written materials unless or until you decide to actually follow through on your commitment to true diversity.
Its not the role of corporate management to unilaterally endorse a controversial political issue unrelated to a companys core business particularly when doing so will alienate a large percentage of customers, employees and shareholders. I urge you to reconsider your decision to support same-sex marriage and to publicly oppose the Minnesota Marriage Amendment.

Being very generous. More like 3-4% I believe.
No more General Mills products will come into my home. There are plenty of other brands. With luck, some of the others will stay apolitical or better yet espouse healthy values. Pride? Pride? What the dickens is there to be proud of? That the practitioners of homosexuality overcame their revulsion to keep putting it in the location for human excrement? Big whoop. Not even a mother could ever be proud of this suicidal addition, no matter how much the politically correct propagandists tell her to be proud. The most insane case of double talk on record is the adoption of the word “pride.” Or maybe it’s really a shorthand for “Pride goeth before a fall.”
Michael Jackson loved lucky charms and little boys too.
There’s a list of brands not to buy - send it to your friends! There’s also a link at the bottom of the page to contact them and you can let them know what a great idea it was to celebrate perversion using a children’s cereal. Schmucks!!!!
Lucky Charms is (WAS) my favorite cereal. I know I can’t stop buying from every company that supports the Sodomites, but I can sure stop buying from the ones that want to stick their “pride” in my eye. That’s why I will never, ever buy another Oreo cookie—ever. That’s also why J.C. Penney will never see another dime from me. Yeah. I really do hold grudges against companies that join my cultural enemies, just like homosexuals target good companies, like Chick-fil-A.
Referenced NY Daily News page gone.
Me too. And I love Cherrios. Now, I buy the offbrand/store version of toasted oat cereal instead.
That high pitched lil fairy leprechaun always made me go further down the aisle, for some reason.
Who buys Lucky Charms but the parents of very young children? Their demographic leans much more wanting to think well of themselves for their ‘inclusiveness’.
The big-G gayness pack from General Mills.
Last cereal I buy from them.
