I rarely, if ever, post outside the Queer Parenting forum here, but I saw below that someone brought up that a Kraft mac n cheese ad was inappropriate for this site, so I figured this is the correct place for this complaint. I am extremely saddened to see a Focus on the Family banner ad everywhere I turn on Mothering - in the Queer Parenting forums no less! I come here strictly for the supportive queer community, and it ceases to be a safe space when we must see the face of a bigoted, homophobic man just to post here. I don't know what business Mothering has done with Focus on the Family, but I would like that business to be transparent so I can decide if Mothering aligns with my values. I urge Mothering to cut all ties with this organization that only serves to alienate a subset of your users.

To my knowledge we have not sold ad space to FOTF.
