Not making this up, Kelloggs tried to pander by making Gay Cereal. (As if Snap, Crackle and Pop weren't gayer than the Keebler Elves or the Smurfs).
Look, I sincerely don’t care who/how people enjoy their friction/partnership. Really. Nor on whether you market to woketivists or not. But my first thought is that I prefer my cereal without any sexual preferences or experience (otherwise it gets soggy)… but the lead-in for this article did make me chuckle heartily... "Have you ever eaten Froot Loops and thought, "This cereal isn’t gay enough?" Do you seek a safe space to eat your Rice Krispies? Are you concerned that your Corn Flakes aren’t sufficiently woke? Well, now Kellogg’s has the solution!"


I actually think the mixed cereal would be fun. Instead that's just the demo version... and inside are 6 separate containers? What's that saying? That they want to pretend we're all the same and equal, but they really want to profit by keeping us divided?

(I assume the real reason is it's hard to keep them mixed well, as the heavier cereals crush the lighter ones, or settle to the bottom... but it's weird that their marketing doesn't match the product. 6 small mixed boxes would be better).

I can't imagine this will play well for Kellogg's in the long run. It's also ironic if you know what a prude Kellogg (their founder) was. The guy would not have been OK with this.
