Please shut the F*** up!

Warning there is going to be a lot of bad words in this post!

Warning I am going to get all real up in here!
Warning I may offend some people but guess what too bad!

So if I may rant for a second..........

The group One Million Moms is upset that JC Penney has chosen Ellen Degeneres as their spokesperson.
Here is a quote from the article I was reading

“Funny that J.C. Penney thinks hiring an open homosexual spokesperson will help their business when most of their customers are traditional families,” the million (or so) moms write on their website. “DeGeneres is not a true representation of the type of families that shop at their store. The majority of J.C. Penney shoppers will be offended and choose to no longer shop there.”

Are you fucking kidding me here people?
The majority of the shoppers will be offended? 
Well I don't shop at Penney's myself so I asked my Mom if is she was going to stop shopping there because Ellen is the spokesperson and she said..... "No I like Ellen DeGeneres"
so there you have it my Mom who is a 75 year old heterosexual woman and mother to 11 children says she is not going to stop shopping at Penney's. 
Enough said. 
Trust me she knows more about raising children and keeping a family together than all One Million of you Moms put together.

Here is another excerpt from that article

With this campaign, One Million Moms, which claims to be “the most powerful tool you have to stand against the immorality, violence, vulgarity and profanity the entertainment media is throwing at your children,” is going after one of the country’s most well-liked television hosts.

Again are you fucking kidding me?

So Ellen should not advertise sweater sets sold at JC Penney because she is gay? 
And this sounds completely reasonable to you?

Okay how about this......

I think people who chew with their mouths open should have to have their jaws permanently wired shut.

I think people who refuse to use their turn signals should have their licenses revoked

I think people who text while driving should have their thumbs cut off

I think people who drink and drive should be charged with possessing a weapon with an intent to kill

I think people who fart in an enclosed space should go to the gas pun intended

I think people who think they are computer experts when they aren't and then they end up making me have to fix everything they fucked up should be sent to live on an island where there is no technology

I think people who do not know how to raise their children to behave themselves when out in public should be made sterile

I think people who teach their children to hate should be shot

Now are some of these things unreasonable?
But no more unreasonable then say....... wanting people to fit in this little mold that you decided is the right way to be.

It is not the fault of the gay and lesbian community that American families are in crisis.
It is not the fault of the gay and lesbian community that most marriages fail.

In my opinion American families are in crisis because parents do not want to raise their children.
They worry about how the media is affecting them.....then turn your fucking television off.
They worry about how a celebrity is behaving and how that may influence their child......then you be the fucking example or idol for your child. Stop making excuses!
I loved the Mom from The Cosby show but I did not want to be like her. I wanted to be like MY MOM!
I am not saying I know everything but what I am saying is that I do not depend on the world to raise my children. I depend on myself. I do not expect celebrities to be perfect and behave perfectly so that my kids can grow to be healthy, happy, decedent people.
Thats my job!
Please stop teaching hate.

I have no answer to why more people are getting divorced. I have been married for almost 15 years and there have been times when I think my life would be simpler if I did not have to worry about someone else's bullshit. We fight but it isn't about gay people. I will bet that any of the people I know who have divorced would say the same thing. I have never heard anyone say "Oh I'm getting divorced because people are gay" or "I can't stay married to my husband because gay people are getting married"

I understand that everyone is entitled to their own opinion.
If you know me you know I love this country we live in and I love the fact that everyone has the freedom to speak their opinion.
But I beg you Please stop the hate!

Love when you speak up your mind Jennifer. Powerful lines you wrote there, many should reflect on them.

I could not agree more, this article is quite absurd and disturbing.

Let's stop the hate, Let's start by respecting others.

I like Ellen, too. Always have. I used to love her standup back when she used to do that.

Andrew Leon said...

But she's not going to be selling me any clothes, I'm pretty sure. Not her fault, though.

Oh my fucking god, human beings are stupid assholes sometimes.

I LOVE this post.... just please promise me you won't send me to that deserted island with no technology because I know I am exactly the kind of person that would fuck everything up and then beg at your feet for you to fix it,... except that I would NEVER in a million years even pretend to be an expert. Not even as like a drunken joke or something. Everyone I know would totally die laughing and then I'd be lonely.

Who doesn't like ELLEN? Would these stupid hosebag women not watch, say, Finding Nemo because Ellen does the voice of one of the FISH in the movie?

People are dumb. Thanks for the rant.

When will we stop judging others? Everybody has a right to a private life and Ellen is just a great person. Being gay has nothing to do with it, and frankly, it is none of anybody's business. Being French, I don't understand why this is such a big deal. For me, religion & sexual orientation are private matters, and should not be used to justify a hate campaign.

Ellen's sitcom used to be on British TV years ago and we loved it - and her.

Jenny, this is but a small reason why people piss me off. Allow me to point out something that struck me while reading your post. This will help explain all you need to know about these "million mom monkeys."

One Million Moms, which claims to be “the most POWERFUL TOOL you have to stand against the immorality, violence, vulgarity and profanity the entertainment media is throwing at your children"

Funny thing is, this is the first I have ever heard of these dopes. I guess they stand against all of that stuff, but do so quietly. But I digress.

I was so annoyed when I read the article I just had to vent about it. I'm glad I am not alone in thinking that these people have lost their marbles.
