I don't much post to ask readers to do anything except move their eyes side to side, but this strikes close to home.
TiVo has partnered with the anti-LQTBG(etc.) group, Focus on the Family, to promote a Fathers Day giveaway of TiVo products and services. I encourage readers to do any of the following as your hearts guide you. Doing so will gain you neither fame nor fortune, nor will declining to participate harm you in any way.
- Go to the Focus on the Family web site and enter a story about a GQTB(etc.) father, or
- If you are LQTBG(etc.), go to their site and enter a story about your father's support, or
- Go to TiVo's site to express your concerns about this matter, or
- Go to this petition drive to sign your name.
I've been a TiVo subscriber for a long time. I'm very disappointed that TiVo has decided to partner with the bigoted hate group, Focus on the Family, to promote a Fathers Day giveaway. There are many organizations that celebrate families and fathers in ways that do not exclude others or display animosity toward LGBTQ people and families, such as my partner and me with our son.
I've never before had any reason to question your corporate values. Please reconsider your position with respect to this organization as I consider my continued subscription to TiVo's service.
Thanks for listening.
