Next Month, Explosive Lesbian Revelations About Josie and the Pussycats!

Our guest columnist is the American Family Association’s “One Million Moms”, suggesting text for your Outraged Email to Toys ‘R’ Us.

As a mother and a member of, I am extremely disappointed to learn that select Toys ‘R’ Us stores are now selling ‘Archie’ comic books with a same-sex wedding displayed on the front cover. I am referring to the ones where the front cover reads “Just Married” with two men marrying, one wearing a service uniform.

I am aware that Toys ‘R’ Us employees do not actually set up the displays; they leave this up to the vendor. Your company should be aware of the merchandise being sold in your stores nonetheless. These comic books are displayed at the front checkout counters so they are highly visible to employees, managers, customers and children.

Unfortunately, children are now being exposed to same-sex marriage in your toy store. This is the last place a parent would expect to be confronted with questions from their children on topics that are too complicated for them to understand. Issues of this nature are being introduced too early and too soon, which is becoming extremely common and unnecessary.

A trip to the toy store turns into a premature discussion on sexual orientation and is completely uncalled for. Toys ‘R’ Us should be more responsible in the products they carry.

Please remove all the same-sex “Just Married – Archie” comic books immediately from your shelves. My decision to shop in your stores depends on it.

I look forward to hearing from you regarding my concern.

Toys ‘R’ Us Selling Same-Sex Marriage ‘Archie’ Comics [One Million Moms, via ThinkProgress]

all the social alleged issues the right are so concerned with have to do with the very issue mentioned in the article:

“This is the last place a parent would expect to be confronted with questions from their children on topics that are too complicated for them to understand. ”

these parents themselves are too immature to explain to their children what is happening. kids have a strange way of accepting the seemingly unexplainable or for the right, unbelievable, like santa clause, the easter bunny and noahs ark to name a few. yet these parents are too immature to offer even the most childish or fanciful explanations to keep the questions at bay for a few more years until the kid gains the knowledge to comprehend and make his or her own decision. everything is a moral outrage so egregious that any answer or explanation shall never be offered and the reasons for such shall be kept locked away in a deep dark closet. no wonder these folks are so whacked out.

They always act like they’re going to have to explain buttsex to any kids who ask why two men are getting married (or why two male penguins tried to hatch an egg together). Of course they can’t just acknowledge reality and say that sometimes people love and want to marry others of the same sex, because the kids might grow up thinking that’s OK, and then where would we be?!

What? No objection to the miscegenation? is it only because they can’t procreate?

Seriously, though, in 1970, that would have been their objection to the comic book, so I guess there’s been a little progress. A teensy tiny little bit.

Davy Jones of the Monkees has died. Marcia Brady is in full mourning.

@Mistress Cynica: Does this mean Bowie can now change his name back?
