Allstate Insurance decided to acknowledge the existence of gay parents in a recent ad — and the American Family Association is not at all pleased.

In case you aren’t aware of the AFA, they’re a radical right-wing group who have tried (and failed) to launch widespread boycotts against multiple brands who showed any semblance of inclusivity when it comes to LGBTQ people.

According to the AFA:

“The Allstate promotion does not share the reality that this child will grow up without the nurture that only a mother can provide. Nor does Allstate recognize the emotional trauma and questions this child will endure growing up in a home with two men.”

They even claim that one of the dads had his arm “around his male ‘wife’.”

Check out the “offensive” ad below and give Allstate a few more views — if only to let the AFA knows they’re on the wrong side of history.
