My association with Honey Maid Graham Crackers goes back to my earliest childhood memories almost sixty years ago. I will always remember how I loved to break a wax paper-wrapped package of the crackers up in bowl and cover them with milk. I know that cultural habit was where the idea for graham cracker cereals came from. Though none of them ever tasted as good as the original concoction.

What is most amazing is how the company chose to turn the bigoted response to an earlier gay-inclusive commercial back on the bigots themselves. The times aren’t just changing, they have changed. This is a real sign of the progress the gay rights movement has made and how there will be no turning back to the destructive way it was no matter how One Million Moms and the American Family Association drag their bigoted heels and scream that we are all doomed.
