Love it, and Ellen. :-) My one question about all this is why didn't they go after Cover Girl? I mean, you don't get more mainstream and traditional than Cover Girl in the US cosmetics market, much like JCP in the department stores arena. Whatever, the 40,000 One Million Moms are wack.

That's what I wondered too!

GMTA - and yep, they are - but dangerous too. :(

I never have understood these kinds of campaigns. What does the gender of who Ellen chooses to love have to do with whether or not JC Penny is a good place to shop. I could MAYBE (but probably not) understand it if Ellen was using the JC Penny commercials to promote "pro-gay" issues, but my understanding is she's just endorsing JC Penny. This is as bad as if they refused to buy intel products because Lavar Burton is African American, or refused to buy San Migel because Jet Li is Asian (though maybe this group wouldn't buy beer anyway, but that's beside the point). To judge Ellen on ONE TRAIT without looking at who she is as a person, is just not in line with any traditional value I've ever been taught.

But it is what those women were taught

because fear and prejudice is taught - and so damn hard to unteach. :( And if JCP wanted to push forward a gay agenda and chose Ellen to do it? I'd go into hock to shop there and pay to see such a thing ever happen. *G*

Re: But it is what those women were taught

YOu're right. It IS taught...all too often.

Interesting, and go Ellen. \o/
Thanks for sharing. :)

Interesting but not surprising

I've been wondering how long it would take before some women's group (religious, no doubt) would attack Ellen now that she's actually a spokesperson for various products. *shakes head sadly*
