Guido Barilla, chairman of the Italian pasta brand Barilla, has stated that they will never make an advert with a homosexual family, to conserve the “sacredness of the family”. Gay groups have called for a boycott.
Nooooo! I love that pasta! Why must this Medieval Italian chauvinist be such a… Medieval, Italian chauvinist??? Urgh. This boycott will hurt. That’s for sure. 😦

Seems like he later has apologized for his initial comment, and said he only wanted to accentuate women`s important role in the family. So now I can perhaps eat their pasta again? Please???
I’m out of league here. Too much brain power on dipalsy!
