Love Has No Labels: PSA Uses X-Ray To Show That Deep Inside, We’re All Skeletons
Art can be used for social change, that’s no secret. Such is the role of Ad Council’s video Love Has No Labels. A public X-ray screen which shows skeletons kissing, hugging and dancing before they emerge on stage as people: lesbian and interracial couples, gay parents, friends of different religions and so on. The performance shows that, despite their outside differences, they’re all the same deep inside: skeletons. Well, I assume Ad Council wants us to think they’re filled with love, but love doesn’t show up well on X-rays
It is fun to see such a dynamic and cool array of couples, and see the people’s reactions. They seem to be pleasantly surprised and very supportive.
Now if that doesn’t make you feel fuzzy deep in your skeleton, I don’t know what does.

Umm, you’re aware that in fact male and female skeletons are different — most notably, women have wider hips — and so someone with a little knowledge of anatomy could tell the difference between a heterosexual couple and a homosexual couple by looking at just their skeletons.
But more important, so what? I’m pretty sure that you can’t tell a tolerant person from a bigot by just looking at their skeletons. Does this prove that tolerant people are no different from bigots and bigotry doesn’t matter? If not, then apparently there ARE things about a human being that matter other than their skeletons. Maybe things like their character and morals, hmm?
