Does Telstra’s new advertisement featuring Instagram personalities The Real Dads of Melbourne suggest women and mothers are irrelevant or replaceable?
The new ad features “spokespersons” for same-sex parenting Jarrad and Michael Duggan-Tierney, along with their seven-year-old son Reid.
Lyle Shelton from the Australian Conservatives responded to the video tweeting, “Where’s his mum? Is intentionally making children motherless now okay?”
