The other day I came across this beautiful ad by Target, a series called Baby Digs and I couldn’t have loved it any more:
I thought the ad was brilliant, magical and really made me want a baby and put together a nursery. I’m so glad Target has stepped up their game in terms of baby stuff! I loved to hear the moms dreaming about their future baby, making plans to teach the baby about space and comic books and all the things they love and, the most refreshing thing in this ad: women that are a normal size. Regular women, real women, not models who are pregnant, but a beautiful, normal couple. Also, gorgeous, well designed baby furniture, which seems to be so hard to find.
I think, with the exception of the size of this nursery (who can afford a nursery as big as my apartment?), the ad only features positive ideas and messages.
Then, I made the mistake of reading the comments that were on facebook when this ad was published and I found out I LIVE IN A BUBBLE. It’s a bubble of love, acceptance, inclusiveness, and all good things. But, the rest of the world doesn’t seem to be part of my bubble.
I would never recommend to anyone to go read those comments, they are racist, homophobic, ignorant and primitive. I was so sad to learn that the majority of the people who commented on the ad instead of mentioning any of the points I mentioned above, preferred to focused on something it didn’t even cross my mind: the couple is consisted of two moms. It’s a beautiful, lesbian couple, and to me that’s so normal, it’s even boring. But to the people who commented it was so foreign and scary they attacked the moms, called them awful names and just became horrible animals. Do they live under a rock? I can’t understand this type of behavior!
Bret is always saying the internet is filled with hateful people. I would like to show him that NO, IT’S NOT! I’m here, full of love and positivity to share with all my internet friends, family, readers, followers and everyone else, near or far!
Here is to change the way people interact on the internet! And yes! Viva the LOVE BUBBLE!
