Elton's Baby Involved in Cover-up

This is why the use offamily" as an adjective typically makes me cringe. Withfamily restaurants" suggesting enormous platefuls of gloopy food served to the din of screeching spawn, andfamily values" more often than not employed as a pretty term for a conservative agenda, perhaps it's time to just hang it up, yeah?

A manager of Harps supermarket in Mountain Home, Arkansas decided the image of Elton John, David Furnish and their new baby was simply too offensive for young eyes to see and applied the store's censorship policy - a grey plasticfamily shield" - normally reserved for pornographic magazines. Clearly the use of the shield, highlighting the men's hairlines rather than the baby, is preferable; we couldn't possible have young children thinking it's okay for two men to create a family. WON'T SOMEBODY PLEASE THINK OF THE CHILDREN?!

Please, small-minded homophobes, stop using the wordfamily" when what you really mean is bigoted and closed-minded". You certainly don't represent my family.
