We need more advertisements like this one!

This is a bank ad from Banco Provincia in Argentina which I am very glad to share with you.

Spot with transgender woman.

Thank you to Jackie at THINGS according to me and Joe. My. God for sharing it.

Wow That brought tears to my eyes... Its funny how we consider countries like that to be 3rd world or 2nd world countries. And yet how we as Americans label anything that is "different" from religion to skin color, to gender identity, to sexual orientation, to other countries being less than us. To see commercials like this make me wonder if countries like Argentina see the world as a bunch of labels "like us" or as a global community full of diversity sharing our common connection being "human"? Whatever it may be I believe we all can learn lessons from them as it is obvious they are a more accepting community than ourselves....
