MUST WATCH: McCafé commercial in Taiwan pictures a Son Confessing to His Father He's Gay; religious group calls for boycott

A+ A-

A TV commercial of McDonalds in Taiwan goes viral after being released last Friday evening on it's Facebook page. The ad aims to convey a message of warming up the conversation in line with it's product McCafé. In the video, a son wrote a message on the McCafé cup addressed to his father, revealing that he 'likes guys.' After reading the message, his father walked out frustrated and his son was left almost crying. Apparently, his dad went back with his own cup of McCafé. He responded to his son's message by writing on the same cup, 'accept that you' (like guys).

Apart from the meaning the company wants to convey in its advertisement, religious groups look at it as a gay promoting campaign. The secretary general of the Alliance of Taiwan Religious Groups for the Protection of Family Chang Shou-Yi, has urged parents and consumers to boycott McDonald’s. Chang released his statement saying, "Because McDonald’s is frequented by many children, it is especially important to oppose the promotion of same-sex behavior.’ The Alliance ‘opposes all advertising that miseducate children on sexual behavior,’ and ‘rebukes and boycotts all enterprises that are polluting the next generation."

Taiwan is known as one of the most gay friendly countries in the region. In fact, there are seven cities that allow household registrations of same-sex couples, however, marriage among them is prohibited. In 2013, a bill for gay marriage passed the first reading, but was caused by an organized Christian minority.

If we are going to examine the ad, it clearly projects a very good message of open communication and acceptance among the family. It just so happened that the subject is about being gay, but what's the issue there? As humans, everyone has the right to be treated equally. Every citizen should have an unbiased chance to all socioeconomic rights. Marriage is between a man and a woman. Relatively, gays deserve to be respected no matter what. :)
