A MOTHER complained that an advert featuring two women kissing for less than a second in a Kellogg's ad was influencing her young son.
 

In the Special K ad women of all shapes, sizes, ages, ethnicities and sexualities are depicted as having moments when they "hate" their body.

The campaign encourages women to ditch the doubt surrounding their imperfections and instead celebrate diversity and difference.

For less than a second – in a sort of blink and you'll miss it moment – two women kiss on the lips.

This was so offensive to one viewer in Australia – where the ad was screened – she complained to the country's advertising watchdog.

The viewer said: "The ad was ruined where it showed two women kissing.

"Why it did one can only wonder perhaps it was trying to support a particular agenda (eg desensitising the public) however regardless, that physical act doesn’t have anything to do with a breakfast cereal product that anyone in our society might choose to purchase and enjoy."

So the mom obviously thinks gay women don't eat Special K – instead living a sad cereal-less existence of only toast for breakfast.

"The ad should consider the well being of the younger generations of children and families as well as everyone else," she continued.

"I object to the kiss. Must we have the lesbian message shoved in our faces all the time? My seven-year-old boy doesn’t need that happening in his lounge room.

"The ad was shown during family viewing time and included two women kissing as a couple in an attempt to normalize this behavior."
