How neglectful I have been. One million moms rant.

I regret the title of this blog but I am not going to change it.  Not everything has to be a thorough analysis but I will continue with that as well....

One Million Moms


What a group.  With their primary question "are you fed up with the trash in today's media?"   (It should be "one-million-bible-thumping-right-wing-moms")

Don't get me wrong I have nothing against anyone's religion, but I really wish these groups of people would use their energy more practically.  This kind of thing, like the AFA and a bunch of others- is just to get pick stuff to unite people around practical discontent with things in society that they aren't going to change.

Reading celebrity quotes of the year brought my attention to them as it brought my attention to their protest to Ellen as JCP spokeswoman (to which she responded "If they have a problem with spokespeople, what about the Pillsbury Doughboy? He runs around without any pants on, basically begging for people to poke his belly. What kind of message is that?" Funny and witty as always.)

They currently:

1. insist that POI  stop "normalizing homosexuality, or they will lose a majority of their viewers that tuned in for clean entertainment"  Nice to know anything related to homosexuality is dirty, what a nice message to send to your (you never know) potentially gay kid MOM!  If they want clean entertainment they could protest just about every show on these days.  (Granted I don't know what is on the show, but they don't really tell you either, but if it is just portraying gay people as normal- and this is dirty wow).

2. state: "The ABC series "666 Park Avenue," which is known for its controversial title and satanic content, will not be renewed. Glory to God." Oh just protest every vampire show (not that this is a vampire show, but isn't that satanic, inappropriate content too?

3. encourage protest: "Please send the prepared email and let USA Network (a division of NBCUniversal) and "Suits" know that Jesus' name is not to be used as a swear word."  Oh please!   Is the standard that characters in TV shows follow the ten commandments?  Better cancel all of TV!

4. Encourage you to: "Please send an email letter urging Urban Outfitters to discontinue this inappropriate t-shirt line immediately." This apparently has to do with some drinking parody shirts.  (A huff post article about it) These kinds of shirts have been all over the place on students of all ages.  I get this a little bit, but it seems UO is an easy target as a "known" company.

In wake of the recent school-shootings I heard a lot of people who were of the what I would call "good'ole'days" mindset talking about how our society is going to crap.  Well... maybe it is.  Please start looking at the real issues behind the "crumbling of our society" and not this other stuff.  1. No one has explained to me how gays are ruining society or family life... it seems the people who have been allowed to live normal lives have done a good deal of that on their own (%50 divorce rate).   2. Showing shows with "evil" in them doesn't make people evil- they better get The Munsters tore off of Nickelodeon- "how satanic!"  3. Not everyone is going to follow your holy book- do you want to follow someone else's?  4. Drinking is a problem in America.  Maybe we should look at why.  Maybe we should question why we have kids partying and drinking their butts off the minute they get some autonomy.  Look at countries that do not treat alcohol as a forbidden fruit- they don't have this nonsense going on.

ADDENDUM 1

Actually it is very easy to find out the details of what they are offended by. I really thought it was fun reading this...  (really they are taking lightly the act of bestiality?)   The commercial.  It is a bit ridiculous... but OMM talks about "a teen girl" if that girl is teen she is at least 18 and no child.  (I don't think two "kids" are going to be roommates (roommate as the OMM rant calls them) in their own apartment).  I don't see how any commercial with people making out is targeted for kids period.  People really need to stretch it don't they.


We are not sure of Skittles' thought process behind their new ad, but if they are attempting to offend customers, they have succeeded. Skittles' newest "Walrus" commercial includes a teen girl making out with a walrus. The two are on a sofa in an apartment kissing on the mouth when her shocked roommate walks in on them. Parents find this type of advertising inappropriate and unnecessary. Does Skittles' have our children's best interest in mind? Skittles candies are for all ages, but their target market is children.

Skittles Marketing Team may have thought this was humorous, but not only is it disgusting, it is taking lightly the act of bestiality. Let Skittles know their new ad is irresponsible.

TAKE ACTION

Please send an email letter to Skittles (owned by Wrigley Co. and now a part of Mars, Inc.) regarding their new "Walrus" commercial and ask that they pull this offensive commercial immediately.
