JC Penny Out Gays the Homophobes

Remember that boycott against JC Penny because they did something gay? Which got totally Streisanded and converted into widespread pro-JC Penny sentiment? Well, JC Penny is giving back to the Progressives and Pro-Gay community with a pro-gay Father’s Day Ad.

The good news about Gay Fathers Day is that you didn’t have to get stuff for your mother of Mother’s Day. The bad news is …

Anyway:

According to the company, the two men who appear in the ad are “real-life dads Todd Koch and Cooper Smith,” and the jubilant children are their kids, Claire and Mason.

“First Pals: What makes Dad so cool?” reads the ad’s copy. “He’s the swim coach, tent maker, best friend, bike fixer and hug giver – all rolled into one. Or two.”

    Do Wap a Diddie Daddy;
    Do Wap – oh, Daddy, Daddy;
    It’s hip, a Diddie Daddy, Daddy;
    Yip, yip, Yippy, Daddy, Daddy !

    The meter is off, oh Daddy, Daddy;
    So is the rhyme, oh Daddy, Daddy;
    But thoughts are what counts, Diddy Daddy;
    Thoughts are what counts, my Daddy, Daddy.

    Okay, I don’t really need clothes, but now I have to go buy some, just to show support.

    LOL – the freaks are freaking out about it again.

  4. dan-o says:

    I was greatly disappointed in this ad from them. In fact I already sent a letter to their investor relations department this morning regarding my thoughts on this. I am waiting for a response before I sell my stock even though a turned a 20% profit. My guess is that I will receive none & I plan on waiting a week before I call my broker. I sure hope I don’t see it fall dramatically over the next week. If there is fallout due to the ad I may sell earlier as I know I can’t be the only one who will not hold ownership in a company that does not uphold the same set of Christian morals as me.

  5. schmeer says:

    Well Dan-o, as Jesus said in his sermon on the mount speech: “Blessed are the stock holders for they shall throw a shit fit over gays being treated like people.”
    Please go crawl into a hole and pretend that we live in the dark ages and let the rest of us get on with being compassionate toward our neighbors, bigot.

  6. baal says:

    Don-o, we know you’re an excellent capitalist. If JC Penny makes more money with this gay friendly what’s the problem?

    I’m being facetious, of course. It’s somewhat refreshing that you’re honest about your bigotry. I’d like to know, however, absent the Christian morals as delivered by your favorite flavor of religion, would you still be have an issue?

    #3: Did you notice at the bottom of the Million Moms page that JCP is “blocking emails from [their] server”?

  8. bcoppola says:

    Dan-O;

    20% you say? Thanks for the tip! Been looking for a good place to put some of my IRA money.

    Hmm, I need some new summer shirts, too.

  9. dan-o says:

    @ baal, Sorry I know this is an atheist blog but God created Adam & Eve not Adam & Steve. With out a man and woman the couple can not create or rather keep the human race going. With that said I honestly do not care about what people do in the privacy of their own home & will leave it at that. I have come to the conclusion that a “civil union” is required for some but I shudder to think about 2 people of the same sex being allowed to “marry”. Let’s leave the word marry for the meaning of a life long relationship between a man & a woman.

    DAn-0
    You’re a subhuman piece of shit.
    Your beliefs are stupid.
    Your “morals” are disgusting. Only an animal would proudly worship something as abhorrent as your “god”

    I shudder that there are still things like you alive in this day in age.

  11. Bob Allen says:

    Just remember – IF you believe the Adam and Eve bullshit – that Adam and Steve – Came from – Adam and Eve !!!!!!!

    SO – the Adam and Eve bullshit – means that Heterosexuality CREATES Homosexuality, so to speak !!!!!

  12. dan-o says:

    @ 10, my guess is you are nicknamed driveby because no one will allow you to stay too long.

    P.S. Goodbye drivebyposser

  13. Illuminata, Genie in the Beer Bottle says:

    Awww, look at the cute widdle bigot trolling for attention. Someone get him a cookie and a blankie so he’ll STFU with his disgusting, revolting bigotry.

  14. Shawn Smith says:

    dan-o, Yah-yah did not create anything. It is a figment of your imagination. It is that imaginary friend you have a cup of coffee with every now and then. It’s time to put away the toys, along with the belief that Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy exist, and join the adults of the world.

    I really feel sorry for you, and I hope you get better.

    Peace.

  15. Yoritomo says:

    Dan-O @9

    Oh yes, let’s stick to Biblical values with marriage: A a life long relationship between a man & a woman – & another woman, if the man so chooses, & any female priosoners of war he likes whose parents and brothers he has killed, & his rape victims… just as God intended it – ordered it, even!

    Someone hand me the brain bleach, please. I feel sick for writing that.

  16. Sassafras says:

    dan-o @ 9 –

    With out a man and woman the couple can not create or rather keep the human race going.

    I know this must be difficult for you to grasp, since you want everyone in the world to be straight, but those of us who oppose you don’t want to make everyone in the world be gay. So bringing up the continuation of the species is irrelevant and only serves to make you look more stupid.

  17. Bruce says:

    Ummm, it’s JC Penney.
    You should have the cents to not rely on just a spell-checker.

  18. Bob Allen says:

    Ah yes – start of quote – “Ummm, it’s JC Penney.
    You should have the cents to not rely on just a spell-checker.” – end of quote.

    It’s posts like this – that caused me to make the First Comment in the thread – “Romney on How To Fix Edumication” to write – start of quote – “Since some in a number of threads within the X-blog series – HAVE taken me to task for spelling errors – I LOVE the title of this thread !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” -end of quote.

    The Spelling Nazi crowd – ALWAYS is good for a laugh !!!!

    AND – this Blog – FAILS to have a Spell Checker – too !!!!!

    Why?

    What the fuck are you talking about? Do you think that you just banned me or something?

    You’re the one who is as pleasant as a necklace made out of rotting sphincters.

    Not staying for long?
    I’ve been reading this longer than you, and followed Greg on his previous blog.

    I picked the name, incidentally, because I intended to make one comment ever on Sci-blogs and it was honest to keep using it for more comments instead of making up new names and appearing to be several different posters. And the fact that you called me “drivebyposser” makes me suspect you are a sockpuppet for another decaying asshole biblical illiteralist that showed up around here some time ago.

    In what way am I “possing” (whatever the fuck that is)?

    Stop being such a fucking dumbass.

  21. dan-o says:

    @16, so you are implying you do not want our species to continue? Nice!
    I think we should have used the word civil union for all people cohabitating together & leave the word Marriage for Christians… to late now.

    @5.2, I am saying it is a choice to be a “life long” speeder similar to being a choice for your sexual partner. I learned of homosexuality around age 10 or 11 as well as heterosexuality. There was a boy in my class that acted different but I had never thought much about it. One day I finally realized why I thought he was different. He was acting very feminine. I looked at him as well as the girls in my class and decided that if I preferred him I would not be able to have (biological) children whereas with girls I knew I could. I also decided I already know what he looks like when undressed and it was nothing new. On the other hand the girls were something new and very illusive. It was at that time that I decided I preferred girls. Do I hate anyone who chooses the other life style….No. I do not agree with it in that they can no longer create life and therefore are missing out on watching their own flesh and blood grow into something special. I know you can adopt and am a large proponent of adoption but raising and caring for your own child is something you will never see.
    @18, good catch!

  22. Bob Allen says:

    Err @ 21 – I’m heterosexual – so catching is not my thing !

    Besides – I don’t want Spelling Nazi’s fuckin with me !

  23. Rory says:

    Dan-o, I’m honestly not sure there’s language that adequately expresses what an enormous, enormous moron you appear to be. I thought about taking your feeble arguments to task and explaining to you why they fail, but I don’t think there’d be any point, because I think you’re about five brain cells away from having to be watered and placed in direct sunlight. In conclusion, I look forward to the world becoming more tolerant and accepting of people’s differences, including sexual orientation, and I hope you live a long life so that you can see just how completely you are on the wrong side of history.

  24. Drivebyposter says:

    @16, so you are implying you do not want our species to continue? Nice!
    I think we should have used the word civil union for all people cohabitating together & leave the word Marriage for Christians… to late now.

    16 wasn’t saying that at all you fucking moron. They were saying your argument was just something someone pulled out of their ass that you gulped down and regurgitate whenever you need to justify being a bigot. It’s bullshit. It’s an excuse. It’s a lie to pretend you aren’t a god damned monster.

    And since civil union is just as good as marriage according to you, why don’t the christians take civil union and regular people can have marriage?

    Since…you know…marriage pre-dates christians and those assholes co-opted it and declared that it was their thing.

    And on a side note, christians haven’t always been largely opposed to gay marriage.
    It used to be really common to get gay married and have it sanctioned by the church.

    How does it feel to know you’re more of an asshole than the 14th century catholic church?

  25. dan-o says:

    @ Driveby, you know sometimes I just wonder how you figure out whether your pants go on your head or your legs. Really you would like the word marriage to be for gays and everyone else (non-gays) to use the word civil union. I think you need to jump start your brain and come back to reality. I am just wondering when it will be legal for me to marry one of my classic cars and then adopt a child and call him or her Moon Child and live in the woods? It sounds like it may not be too far off.

    Walker wins!!!!

    All lifeforms lose (though Scourge Walker’s destructiveness is restricted to mostly Wisconsin.
    I am pleased that the Koch Party, Hendricks, and whichever other fascist entitlement-mentality teapugs had to burn significant portion of their bribery funds on this election. Nice ratio :-)

    Sorry I know this is an atheist blog but God created Adam & Eve not Adam & Steve.
    Evidently, (some|no)(one|thing) created ‘Adam and Steve’ as they exist.
    Let’s leave the word marry for the meaning of a life long relationship between a man & a woman
    I agree that the 1st amdt prohibits government from defining religious terms such as ‘marriage’. Everyone is free to define the word anyway they desire. And it’s a shame that theocommies don’t agree.

  28. this says:

    legal for me to marry one of my classic cars
    consenting adult. can sign the papers. enjoy.

  29. Bob Allen says:

    @ 28 – So – would you be a pitcher – for the car’s tail pipe OR
    a catcher – from the car’s piston rod ????????
