Well I’m not Jewish but OI!!!
Take a breather before you read this one because it might get ya’ as angsty as I am right now. And breath and…
SO! One Million Moms is on another hate mongering campaign and this time they’re not even going after real gay people. For anyone who missed the Ellen debacle , pretty much in a nutshell, a nutcase group of women tried to petition against our power lesbian and all around good person Ellen Degeneres as a JC Penney spokesman. And they lost. Which ruled.
Well now, following suit with Kirk Cameron, Anne Coulter, Westboro Baptist Church, and every other homophobic douche canoe that can’t keep their outdated redneck pieholes shut, O.M.M. is on yet another rant but this time trying to put Toys ‘R’ Us in the hot and hateful seat.
Now they don’t like Archie, surprise surprise, and the newest addition to the ol’ jalopy gang, Kevin Keller. Kevin’s a ‘mo, in love with his, get this, AFRICAN AMERICAN BOYFRIEND *GASP*, and just got married in the series. Well a couple things. Firstly, I haven’t actually stopped to appreciate as Tyrell said in the article, how completely amazing it is that something as iconic as Archie has launched this character and story arc. Unreal and kudos and applause.
Well someone from O.M.M. must have been in Toys ‘R’ Us, and walked up to the counter, and lo-and-behold saw the abomination that is gay marriage staring them in the face, flew back to the beehive and worked up this weak piece of literary genius:
“As a mother and a member of OneMillionMoms.com, I am extremely disappointed to learn that select Toys ‘R’ Us stores are now selling ‘Archie’ comic books with a same-sex wedding displayed on the front cover…I am aware that Toys ‘R’ Us employees do not actually set up the displays; they leave this up to the vendor. Your company should be aware of the merchandise being sold in your stores nonetheless. These comic books are displayed at the front checkout counters so they are highly visible to employees, managers, customers and children…Unfortunately, children are now being exposed to same-sex marriage in your toy store…This is the last place a parent would expect to be confronted with questions from their children on topics that are too complicated for them to understand…
You know, I want to comment on “too complicated for them to understand”, but I’m just not going to, it’s just too easy. So let’s do this instead. Let’s all go to this link here at thepetitionsite.com, fill out that quick li’l form on the right, and make sure that Toys ‘R’ Us gets a HELL of a lot more than 1000 people signing so that One Million Bitches will keep their clamshells shut and we can slowly continue our crawl out of the dark ages.
And hit the Facebook/Twitter post on the left of the petition page and make sure word gets out in internet world that you’re taking a stand! With a little help, the next generation can grow up differently.
