Your advertisement (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s80wL5al5NA) is not just offensive to one small section of society. You have offended a nation at large. Between 2004 and 2006 there were 486,000 one-parent families with children under 15 years in Australia (Australian Bureau of Statistics 07/08/2007), and since then this number has grown. Each and every single one of those individual parents has worked their fingers to the bone to ensure that their child/ren have then same opportunities, the same support and the same tender love that children with two parents get.
And to look deeply at the issue of same-sex families, it is important to look at the facts present. If you look at studies done by the University of Melbourne (http://www.achess.org.au/) through the Australian Study of Child Health in Same-Sex Families, you will notice that the only issue that the children have is that "they are negatively affected by external societal stigma" ("The health perspectives of Australian Adolescents from same-sex parent families: a mixed methods study", S. R. Crouch, E. Waters, R. McNair and J. Power, 20 June 2014) - meaning? People like you, who are the real ones hurting those children. You are the ones putting social stigma upon these poor children, and singling them out as different. You are the ones affecting the mental health of these children and it has to stop. Take down you advertisement, and rather than hurting families of all types that don't fit your nuclear family description (not just gay families), help them to raise their children in a society that is accepting, loving, caring, and doesn't discriminate.
