Saw a promoted Tweet from Dove soap today. Dove was pushing for support to encourage a federal law requiring businesses to have paid paternity leave.

That is a pure empathy push. It is great if Dove wants to offer to their employees, but to market by encouraging more federal regulation is a bridge too far IMO. I was pleased to see the Twitter replies to the Tweet was mostly blasting Dove.

But the ad in question is in America and pushing for the paternity leave in America if it's the one I'm thinking of. So his criticism still stands

I wasn't defending the company.... I was pointing out - "no wonder"... it's a freaking foreign company.

Oh ok.
