How have other companies used NOM's sad stock photo child? #March4Marriage

by Jeremy Hooper

AS you might have already seen, the National Organization For Marriage is running a truly disgusting print ad in today's Washington Times supplement that implies same-sex couples are imposing "moral confusion" on our kids. The stock photo model could not look any more distraught:

I thought it might be interesting to Google around and see how other companies have felt compelled to use this same stock photo. The sad answers are exactly what I expected: they've used this pic as a stand-in for hungry kids, abused kids, kids of divorce, kids whose parents are in foreclosure, and more:

But for NOM, this little girl is deeply sad and afraid, even, not because her parents are apart or unloving—but because they are in love and desperately want to be together. And the girl isn't upset because of hunger or abuse—she's troubled simply because her parents have matching genitalia.

NOM is repugnant.
