Recently I have found out that http://onemillionmoms.com/ is starting a campaign to get J.C. Penney to fire their new spokesperson, Ellen Degeneres. These people want to get her fired because of her sexuality.
Why? She is famous, personable, likeable, trustable, and Gay. Yep, they are trying to get her fired from her spokesperson position because she is a homosexual.
I oppose this whole heartedly. I say screw Onemillionmoms.com!!
They want people to call their local store and complain. Their website has a function to find the number for your local store and call the manager. I say thank you! We can use this tool to call and thank them for not being bigots!
We can use the store locator at http://onemillionmoms.com/IssueDetail.asp?id=438 to get the number for the local J.C. Penney and call and thank them for judging a spokesperson by their sell-able qualities and not being a slave to the bigoted right.
One Million Moms dot com has already asked their people to contact JC Penney's customer service and corporate headquarters. Again, I say take their work and use it to call and say that we respect JC Penney's for their resistance to homophobic bigotry.
Make a personal phone call to JC Penney's customer service department. Their numbers are 972-431-8200 (customer service) and 972-431-1000 (corporate headquarters).
Please contact them and let them know that you appreciate their ability to resist homophobic pressure.
