BenderRodriguez shared this story earlier today, but I wanted to bring more attention to it.

In honor of June 25th, Pride Day, the folks at Oreo posted this image for their Facebook page.

Uploaded with

The result, so far, close to 200,000 "likes" and over 20,000 comments. Of course, many of those comments are from fundies who can't stand anyone or anything supporting The Gay, but there are also tons of people showing their support.

What I really love is this meme, shared by George Takei (of course).

I'm heading to the store soon and will absolutely be buying a bag of Oreo cookies in support of this move. It's so nice to see corporations like Oreo, JC Penny, EA (who had employees walking in the SF parade) and others support gay rights and gay pride.

Many firms and brands, such as Bud Light, Wells Fargo, Johnson & Johnson and Coca-Cola, sponsored or sent representatives to the equal rights events scheduled around the country this past weekend.

5:22 PM PT: SF Weekly gets involved with a hilarious tongue-in-cheek list of other gay-themed treats that should be boycotted.

Not only is Skittles' slogan "Taste the rainbow," but each of its hard-shelled candies come branded with the letter S, which almost certainly stands for SIN.

5:35 PM PT: From the comments, Sirenus recommends sending the folks at Oreo a message in support of this move.

In the US

And in the EU

9:49 PM PT: I just got home from the store and, yes, I did buy Oreos.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
