Ellen is a Great Role Model, 1 Million Moms…Not So Much
One of my clients informed me a few days ago that a group of 40,000 moms are boycotting JCPenny because Ellen DeGeneres is their new spokesperson. Now I see the humor in why she didn’t even call them the “One Million Moms Group”.
I immediately said, “What the heck is wrong with people these days?!”. We both agreed that this group of moms is way out of line!
My client said, “I think Ellen is great for JCPenny! Her style is a perfect reflection of what JCPenny has to offer!”. I couldn’t agree more and that’s why I’m writing about it.
First of all…how many of these moms wear Cover Girl makeup? They probably wouldn’t admit it now because that would be extremely hypocritical! I’m willing to bet that plenty of them use Cover Girl products, but did they boycott that company? Probably not.
If you’re going to talk trash like that about Ellen then you better be willing to give up EVERYTHING she endorses. What about Vitamin Water, American Express, American Idol, SHAPE Magazine, Good Housekeeping, and Redbook?
Are these moms saying they won’t drink Vitamin Water, boycott American Idol, cut up their American Express, & stop reading Ladies Home Journal? I highly doubt it!
Second, technically their opinion is so overly biased that they don’t even have a place in making such a statement.
I don’t know for sure, but most of those moms are probably married to men or had their baby with one. Even if a lesbian mom wanted to be in the group….seems like they wouldn’t let her in. How have we become so warped as a society that we think we can judge anyone for anything? Just because you’re straight doesn’t mean you can’t be judged for something else.
On that note…
Are all “One Million Moms” married? Maybe, but with today’s…odds probably not. Is Ellen judging you for having a baby before marriage? I don’t even personally know her and I can guarantee she isn’t judging anyone! Is she going to call you a floozy(I thought of worse!) for being a single mom or judge you because you’re in a christian group yet you bash other peoples personal choices?
This is what’s wrong with our country and the world for that matter. There is a lack of love and willingness to accept among our population. Everyone is different in their own way and no one has a right to judge the other. You can be christian, atheist, gay, or straight, it doesn’t matter. We are all human and we should all teach our children to love one another regardless of religious choices or sexual preference.
This might be a controversy if people of all types and different walks of life came together as one to boycott something. Even then they would have no place to demand a company fire someone for doing absolutely nothing wrong!
The One Million Moms Group seems to portray themselves as a strictly conservative christian organization scouring the media for anything they don’t approve of and demanding a change.
Sorry to break it to you, but there are all kinds of things wrong with the world and there isn’t a darn thing you can do about it!
You can target Ellen and the TV show Modern Family, but what are you accomplishing? It isn’t going to change free speech or the public’s right to be themselves. All you can do is teach your children good morals and values and hope for the best.
What do they want out of this? Some coupons?! A free t-shirt? Obviously JCPenny has no problem with Ellen DeGeneres’s sexual preference or they wouldn’t have asked her to be their spokesperson. They look at her as a great role model and person. To all of you discriminatory moms out there…if you don’t like it then don’t shop at JCPenny! It looks like they’ll be picking up more than 40,000 non-discriminatory shoppers anyways :)!
We are supposed to teach our children to treat others the way we want to be treated in return. Do you really want to show your kids that discriminating against others is right? As parents you are supposed to set an example for your children. After all, they are our future and discrimination needs to stop, not rise. As moms you are basically teaching them it’s okay to bully a fellow classmate for being gay or non-christian. I saw this type of bullying a lot growing up and I know that it is only getting worse by the generation. I feel sorry for these children and hope that they have better role models in their lives.
I don’t get to watch Ellen’s show often because of work, but when I do I love it! I’ve seen nothing but amazing things on her show. She makes people laugh, sets aside their differences, helps those in need, and recognizes the talented.
Gay or not she’s got a great show and she’s a wonderful person! All-in-all, Ellen should be viewed as a role model for our youth. She is proof that no matter what happens in life you can only go up! Most importantly, you should be yourself and stand up for what you believe in!
On another note, it looks like the One Million Moms Group has deleted their post about not shopping at JCPenny. Apparently several moms commented that they will still shop there.
Can’t take the heat? If you’re going to post such a controversial comment you better be willing to stick to it no matter the responses, and that applies to anyone!
If you would like to show your support for Ellen as a JCPenny Spokesperson you can do that here on Facebook.
I love this commercial….I think most of you will too!
