I'm going to have to shop at J C Penney now...

Because the One Million Moms group is trying to start a boycott of the store for daring to use Ellen DeGeneres as a spokesperson. J C Penney has refused to submit to bullying and will continue to use DeGeneres. Ellen DeGeneres believes in honesty, equality, kindness, compassion, treating people the way you want to be treated and helping those in need. Apparently to some people her being gay negates all those 'Christian-claimed' traditional values.

I used to buy shoes at J.C. Penney. If I am to resume being a customer, I'll have to find some other article of clothing... they don't carry boots in my size! (XXXXW - extra-extra-extra-extra-WEIRD).

Warner Bros. has already yanked your Ellen video. "O brave new world, that has such [corporations] in it!"

Dammit! That's how many times I've fallen for this yanking-the-video stupidity?!

Anyway, the 'honesty, equality' etc is what Ellen says at the end of the video. Showed a lot of class.

Thanks for persevering. That's a magnificent message from an admirable person.

It is. I admire and appreciate her all the more for standing up to bullies.
