Skip to comments.JC Penney Raises Ire With Another Gay-Friendly Ad (2 "Fathers" for Fathers Day)

Is JC Penney trying to become GayC Penney, or is it just a smart marketer?
Last year, the company announced that Ellen DeGeneres, who is openly gay, would be its latest spokesperson. On Mothers Day, it featured a lesbian couple in one of its ads. And now, just in time for Fathers Day, the retail chain has issued another print ad, this one with real-life couple Todd Koch and Cooper Smith, and their two young children.
The copy reads: What makes Dad so cool? Hes the swim coach, tent maker, best friend, bike fixer and hug giver all rolled into one. Or two.
Once again, the ads have raised the ire of the conservative One Million Moms, that is again accusing JC Penney of promoting sin in its advertisements.
Its obvious that JCP would rather take sides than remain neutral in the culture war, OMM writes. JCP will hear from the other side, so they need to hear from us as well. Our persistence will pay off! One day we will answer for our actions or lack of them. We must remain diligent and stand up for Biblical values and truth. Scripture says multiple times that homosexuality is wrong, and God will not tolerate this sinful nature.

It’s silly sarcasm.
Dallas parents Todd Koch and Cooper Smith and their two children are featured in J.C. Penneys June book mailed out this week.
The gay couple is just one of several dads featured in scenes with children, summer merchandise and suggestions for Fathers Day gifts.
Smith runs the Cooper Smith Agency, a PR firm that has counted some of the most preeminent companies and nonprofits among its clients.
Giving the finger to 98% of your customers takes something... stupidity - maybe?
When Cooper Smith and his partner Todd Koch decided to make their two of a kind into a full house, they began looking into adoption. The system was a minefield of arcane rules and strategies exacerbated by being gay parents.
Two years later, they found themselves a family of two daddies and an equal number of children, both now barely a year old. Throughout the process, the couple had questions and found their answers in random places.
Thus was born a set of twins of sort the matching websites TwoDaddiesOneLove.com and TwoMommiesOneLove.com. The sites were designed to help those same-sex couples looking into getting in the family way. They both actually lead to one site with one mission “to bring together gay mommies and daddies to help support each other in raising our next generation,” according to Smith. Think of them as clearinghouses of information mixed with the social network aspect of Facebook.
How monstrously unfair to bi’s. Shouldn’t a bi be able to have one of each?

JCPenney Is Already Going Back to the Discounting Well
The ground-breaking retail makeover of JCPenney engineered by former Apple Store executive Ron Johnson has been rooted in the concept of everyday low prices. Instead of inflating original prices thatll inevitably be drastically marked down via sales and coupons, the store slashed original prices and promised an end to fake discounts and nonstop sales. Now, though, only a few short months into the fair and square shopping experience, JCPenney is already tweaking its game plan by (surprise!) adding more sales.
Overall, the company reported a $163 million net loss in the quarter. Customers sure have a strange way of showing how much they love the new JCP.
J.C. Penney’s shares in free-fall after 1Q loss
everybody has a problem with Ellen.She just pulled a double.Penny lost she won,wonder what she has on them.
Mitt's OK with it.
“...Mitt’s OK with it.”
I hope Mitt does not hurt the decent candidates we have down ticket. We need to just keep hitting Obambi for being pro-faggot even though Romnerd is only 7.2 percent better.
If my local JC Penny is any indicator of what has happened to the chain over the last couple decades, they’ll be BK in a year anyway.
Yes, it is! The chart shows a drop from $43.18 in February to the current $25.83 The first Ellen commercials were released in February.
But then they’ll qualify for a billion dollar recovery gift from that new bankrupt czar. Wouldn’t want a black founder to fail. That would be racist as well as allowing the free market to pronounce judgement on three percent of the population.
