Well, add Dove to the list of corporations who are more interested in pushing a progressive agenda than just selling us shampoo and soap. Do these big corps care about keeping their loyal customer base in the slightest?

Dove released a new ad campaign called “Real Moms.” As expected, it features mothers of all races, marital statuses, and economic classes with a positive message that says, “Moms are redefining what it means to be a ‘good mom'” and “Do what fits your family and trust yourself.”

But in a surprising twist, the ad introduces a transgender mom into the picture, because that’s going to make a lot of people run out and buy lotion or something. Calling himself Shea, the man introduces he and his wife as their child’s biological parents and then says:

“You get people that are like, ‘What do you mean? You’re the mom?’ We’re like, ‘Yep. We’re both gonna be moms.’”

“There’s no one right way to do it all,” Shea says later in the commercial.

But there is really only one way to be a mom, right? The science isn’t that difficult. I found this amusing tweet that hit the nail on the head:

Ironically, the commercial starts off with a mom saying, “Everybody has ideas about what it means to be a good mom, and most people feel like they have a license to tell you what they think it means to be a good mom.”

Yeah, kinda like Dove is doing here. How about just sell us your product, not your politics?
