This was a full page ad in the Canadian National Post.
With the Ontario Provincial Election fast approaching, many people feel that their opinion MUST be heard. That’s when private partisan ads, like these, begin to find there way in the faces of the general public.
This, my friends; is a total disgrace. This ad is not only hugely offensive to the entire LGBTTQQ Community in an outward attack, it also bases its’ arguments on the concept that people who identify as LGBTTQQ are not real people. WHAT IS THIS!!! This is Canada we’re talking about! Yet, here we are being faced with this hideous form of discrimination.
Also, while it does seem like an overkill to point out, I still feel this issue needs to be addressed. This ad, which is brought to us by the apparent “Institue for Canadian Values” as an attack on the Toronto District School Board, uses children as the face for this attack-ad. Not only is this strategy weak and low on their part, but it is also an opportunity to see the real character of these people. They claim that the School Board is corrupting their children, and here they are, using and corrupting their children themselves so that they can grow up to abuse the human rights of other people because they weren’t given the curriculum to understand that human rights are rights that ALL humans deserve.
To top it all off, they hide behind arguments such as religious rights/beliefs (which I would like to point out, all religions focus on the fair treatment of all individuals and their human rights) and the main argument that teaching children about all types of people is somehow harming and/or corrupting them.
My argument is this: ALL PEOPLE deserve equal human rights. This would not be an issue if the curriculum was focused on racism or ableism. Instead, because the focus is on homophobia and anti-heterocentrism, it somehow is an entirely different issue, which I argue is wrong and, in itself, abusive to human rights and the premotion of ignorance and hate.
Non-progressive ads like these are what set back any human rights activism and lead us to further abuse.
This needs to be stopped. Anyone who actually understand their religion understands that we need to accept and love everyone. I am hurt that this group thinks all religion people are bigots and that anyone who has “Canadian values” is a bigot.
Tumblr, do your stuff. That’s the executive director’s information.

This is really, really disgusting.
So, basically, “Don’t teach me that these things I may already be feeling are perfectly all right, or that other people who feel this way are human beings and deserve my respect.” And the SCHOOLS are the ones “corrupting” children?
I have no brain or energy left so all can muster is a great big “Ewwww”.
