Normally, I try not to pay attention to my haters, but this time I’d like to talk about it, ‘cause my haters are my motivators. (Million Moms) doesn’t think that I should be the spokesperson for this company because I’m gay – so for those of you just tuning in for the first time, it’s true: I’m gay.
…So they wanted to get me fired, and I’m proud to say JC Penney stuck by their decision to make me their spokesperson. It’s great news for me because I need some new crew socks. I’m really gonna clean up with this discount.
I mean, if they have a problem with spokespeople, what about the Pillsbury Doughboy? I mean he runs around without any pants on, basically begging people to poke his belly. What kind of message is that, you know?
…I usually don’t talk about stuff like this on my show, but I really wanna thank everyone who’s supporting me, and if you don’t know me very well – if you’re just watching for the first time, maybe just getting to know me – I wanna be clear, and here are the values I stand for: I stand for honesty, equality, kindness, compassion, treating people the way you wanna be treated, and helping those in need. To me, those are traditional values; that’s what I stand for.
You’ve probably heard about the latest plea for attention from the uber-conservative One Million Moms. They want Marvel and DC to abandon all their gay characters and storylines and present a moral heteronormative example for the children.
And I’m pretty not much not going to talk about that. It’s stupid and they’re stupid. Instead, I’m going to talk about a different thing, addressing right to One Million Moms.
One Million Moms,
If you want to get mad at comics on behalf of the children, let me provide you with some material. Because, holy crap, there is a lot of it.
Does the fact that heroic characters are engaging in (what you consider) questionable moral behavior bother you? How about this?
There are countless other examples that I have neither the time or the inclination to post. And don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying that I want comics to stop depicting gratuitous sex and graphic violence. And I don’t need my characters to be bastions of morality. But you’re “Moms” (with a capital “M”!) and for some reason you choose to protest creative content rather than just not buy the material for your child. Which is fine because, hey, it’s a free country. But instead of protesting that stuff on behalf of The Children, you choose to protest this:
Priorities. Maybe you should consider getting some.
Hey! If you’re ever bored or feeling down, look up the website one million moms. It’s fucking hilarious. I just read a whole article about not letting Lucifer in your homes every Monday. And another about how a show centered in the main gay character’s point of view is ridiculing Christ. Lmao good reads, good reads. Nothing funnier than reading ignorant people’s intolerant, self-righteous bullcrap disguised as the greater good. Ha.
After accidentally encouraging support for a gay DC Comics character, antigay group One Million Moms has taken down its historically homophobic Facebook page.
One Million Moms, which has far fewer than one million members and belongs to an organization classified as a hate group, has been notorious lately as a vocal opponent to pro-gay measures like JC Penney’s hiring Ellen DeGeneres as a spokesperson. A few days ago they posted something about DC’s Green Lantern coming out as gay, and the post earned tons of comments in support of Green Lantern.
Apparently, OMM went a step further recently by deleting their entire Facebook page. The New Civil Rights Movement notes that the group sent out a Tweet yesterday that stated they will be offline for most of next week to attend “vacation bible school.”
Ellen DeGeneres responds to the One Million Moms group on her show (a branch of the American Family Association). The group have been threatening to boycott JC Penney over their decision to choose Ellen to be their new spokesperson due to her sexuality. Absurd I know. Thankfully sanity has prevailed and Ellen remains spokesperson.
