You know how the left keeps using kids to “prove” their point? Yeah, it’s getting old (read Dear Liberals: Stop Exploiting ‘Transgender’ Children). But they just won’t stop. Take a gander at this new “edgy” Australia and New Zealand Bank ad.
We asked some kids to do some chores. And then paid the girls less than the boys. Just like in the real world.
Ah, yes. Just like in the real world.
Except they forgot the part where the girls get pregnant and go on maternity leave. Or just don’t apply for the job at all, because most women don’t like manual labor.
Here we have two things that liberal media loves to tout: children and the “wage gap.” Some director sat down with these kids and told them what to say after (intentionally?) misleading them. Then cemented that moment for eternity on video.
If only there was a word for coercing naive victims into reacting the way you want them to after conveniently leaving out opposing facts or statistics… Oh, right. That’s called manipulation.
Listen, I get it. “From the mouths of babes,” right? Except not really. Usually we don’t consult with children over potential ethical or social issues. They’re pretty easily hoodwinked into doing or saying things they wouldn’t do as adults (see Idiot Parents Teach Kids to Burn American Flags at #McKinney Protest). That makes them rather unreliable moral compasses.
Case in point: the left needs to stop using kids as their oracles, or dancing monkeys, or whatever weird political tool they think up next. It’s not only cringe-worthy to us but unfair to them. Especially when the agenda you’re pushing happens to be entirely false. I know children love to play make-believe but this is going nauseatingly far.
Also, the “gender pay gap” is a myth. Watch, learn, and stop spreading lies.
