Um...how about people who don't think she's very funny? :P


In that case they could dislike her a little, but hate? Such a strong word and so overused in most instances.

Those people don't exist. Try again. :P

That was awesome. First, how could anyone hate Ellen? Secondly, don't those people have something, ANYTHING, better to do with their time? Sometimes I wish I wasn't gay because I feel like my stance on this isn't taken seriously because I am gay. I know deep down that this isn't right and my thoughts aren't always fueled by being gay myself. I wonder what those women think about this Macy's ad:

I wish you didn't feel that way. Your stance is spot on. And you should never feel that your opinion is not taken seriously. These people (OMM) are vile. JCP did the right thing. Ellen is an amazing human being. She is an example to us all.

JCP is making so much publicity off this, I could almost believe they actually paid OMM to start the whole media circus. :P

Apparently One Million Moms shut down their Facebook page, so people are snarking on this page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/One-Million-Moms-Against-Ignorance-and-Intolerance/150223078397517

Um, hello? It should be a little difficult to confuse the two.

Haven't you read any YT comments ever/lately? ;)

ETA: if you want to send JC Penny an email to show your support, this link will take you there: https://shop2.jcpenney.com/jcp/frm_generalinquiries.aspx?VID=&Email=&Referer=http%3a%2f%2fwww.jcpenney.com%2fjcp%2fCust omerServiceSub.aspx%3fDeptID%3d12476%26CatID%3d252 78%26CatTyp%3dCSR%26cmResetCat%3dTrue%26CmCatId%3d 70749&Subject=General+Inquiries&Topic=&CmCatId=

Done!

BTW, here's what I sent:

"Cudos for not bowing to the pressure from a small-minded minority who opposed your decision to use Ellen Degeneres as a spokesperson. In an age when so many corporations are crippled by fear, it's refreshing to see a company that lets right -- and common sense -- prevail. Thank you!"

We appreciate your feedback and are equally excited to partner with America's favorite host and former jcp associate, Ellen Degeneres, to help tell our story. Thank you for your feedback.

Cordially,

I got the exact same reply as mag. Not that I expected a "personal" reply of course -- and I'm guessing they're getting a lot of mail on this!

Funny, though, they could send almost the same form response to a negative/complaint letter!

I suspect they're sending the same message to everyone.
