Nabisco utilized a 46-second Twitter commercial to promote its Chips Ahoy! Cookies in a recent Mother’s Day ad. And who better to celebrate the importance of motherhood and tug on the apron—and heart— strings than a drag queen?! That’s right, the company chose reality TV contestant Jose Cancel (!), aka Miss Vanjie, to melt mother’s hearts.
Miss Vanjie touchingly said: “What’s a sweet gesture for you to do to your momma? Your real momma, your drag momma, whichever momma, somebody, whoever takes care of you, whoever you feel or consider your momma, it’s their day today.” That’s right, actually giving birth is no longer a prerequisite for being considered a mom. If you identify as a mom……you are one! Just like gender, motherhood is only a social construct, a state of mind, an ephemeral choice, no more based in biological fact than is the color of one’s shirt.
I can be a boy, I can be a girl, I can be a father, I can be a mother! I am woke! I have spoke! Celebrate my inner social justice warrior! Tremble at my tolerance! Bow down before my inclusiveness! Praise my inner perv! My fetish makes me moral! I kink therefore I am!
Thus, Mother’s Day, like everything else the left addresses, is watered down, diminished, cheapened……sullied.
“Miss Vanjie” did acknowledge her real mom, apparently, saying, “I am so thankful to have a mother, like mine, who supports me through all my craziness, and loves on me, and buys me Chips Ahoy! Cookies.” There it is, the corporate message: “Buy this product, as we are woke.” Virtue-signaling by any other name would smell as rank.
I’m sure Miss Vanjie’s mom, whichever, somebody, whoever takes care of “her,” really does shower her with Chips Ahoy! cookies. Right. This ad nearly made me toss my cookies.
It would have been more truthful if Nabisco had had Miss Vanjie say: “I don’t always shamelessly pander to a tiny fringe minority group, but when I do, I do it for Chips Ahoy!”
