An ad released last week suggests children will be left without loving parents if gay marriage is approved.

In the 30-second ad released by the anonymous group i2Open, two young boys fall from a climbing wall on a playground. A mother rushes to the side of one of the boys. The mother asks the other boy, “Where's your mommy?” The boy just looks sad as two men, presumably the boy's fathers, approach him but refuse to comfort him.

“Is marriage about what adults demand or what children need?” a male announcer asks as captions call on voters to approve a proposed constitutional amendment in Minnesota which would limit marriage to heterosexual unions.

The ad was roundly criticized by The Young Turks' Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, who called it “absurd.”

“Because gay fathers wouldn't help their child if he fell,” Kasparian said sarcastically.

“Yeah, they would come in their ratty sneakers and they'd just stand over him, they'd lord over him. They'd be like, 'Son you must now learn what it is to have gay parents. We shall not pick you up at all,'” Uygur added. “Are you kidding me?”

“Wait a minute. How about us – straight fathers – are we all assholes like that?” he added. “That's awesomely comical, but they did not intend that to be comical.”
