JC Penney Features Same-Sex Couple in May Catalogue

May 12, 2012 JC Penney Features Same-Sex Couple in May Catalogue

Fifteen years ago, when advertisers got wind that Ellen DeGeneres was going to “come out” on her popular sitcom show “Ellen,” some advertisers fled.

One of them was JC Penney. Flash forward to one of their newest clothing ads in the May catalog. It features a real-life same-sex couple. The photograph is of two models identified as Wendi and Maggie holding their two daughters. Both women appear be wearing wedding bands.

Quietly, gradually and largely without protest, advertising is starting to reflect new attitudes and new realities about who we are. “Our cultures change and I think the broader consumer and the spending power in the country has become more progressive,” Eric Bovim, CEO of the ad firm Gibraltar Associates said.

There are gay couples on prime-time television shows, and now gay couples are coming out of Madison Avenue’s closet, which, according to Bovim, gives way to a new target audience.

“I think companies that are successful in marketing nowadays are trying to appeal to a progressive customer,” Bovim said. “They understand that customers are looking for social values, community, visionary aspirations. These are things that they buy into.”

Another previously unseen group in advertisements that now is appearing more and more is interracial couples, reflecting the rising number of mixed-race marriages in the United States.

Advertisers are sending different subliminal messages.

Similar to the Disney boycott by Evangelicals we need a boycott of JC Penney. Wake up America and take action against this modern-day perversion that is being mainstreamed with businesses and movies supported with your tax dollars.

Focus your marketing on 2% of the population. Yeah, that’s the ticket.

Well, that tells me I'm not welcome in JC Penney store. So, I have no reason to shop there again. Glad to know that.

Um, I've noticed that gays don't generally like JC Penneys clothes. Don't they lean more towards the high priced designer stuff? Penneys is way too conservative in style.

My guess is this will be the nail in their coffin. First stop having sales, then cater to a tiny minority of the population who doesn't patronize your stores in the first place.

What about some polygamist “families”?

How about a man that loves his dog a little too much?

I’m sure some incest would fall under the “equality” canard too.

I doubt if they will be successful in up-scaling their image. Even though their clothing quality is higher than their blue collar image would suggest, snobby progressives aren’t ever going to want a J.C.Penny label on their clothes.

Thanks for posting this.

Someone needs to tell JC Penny that heterosexuals have more kids as we don’t need to adopt to have them.

Will never shop there again. I clicked on their community relations page and found out they also work with the racist hispanic group La Raza.

I don’t think this is too smart. One woman I know, who probably wouldn’t care about this, already complained to me about Penny’s “square deal” thingy. I guess it means no sales. She just volunteered this complaint to me.

Now, I have bought some stuff from Penny’s and I don’t know if I’d boycott them, they certainly wouldn’t notice if I did.

But it seems they are going out of their way to alienate people. And let’s face it, those homemakers of middle America are NOT going to be replaced by FABULOUS gays, not at JC Penny’s they’re not.

“I guess I’ll have to look at Macy’s web site now.”

Try Kohl’s, the shirts I get a Kohl’s are much better than the similar quality from Macy’s, much better.

You can also sometimes do very well at Sears at the clearance racks. I gave up on Sears clothes about 25 years ago, but lately I’ve gotten some great buys on some nice stuff there.

JC Penney’s CEO, Ron Johnson, formerly at Apple, obviously doesn’t understand that JC Penney was founded in Kemmerer, Wyoming, in 1902, and it’s growth was made possible by conservative, ordinary Americans. Unfortunately the huge majority of Penney’s customers (many, like me, who are now or soon to be “former” Penney’s customers) don’t think like the liberal denizens of Silicon Valley. Their new format ads suck, their models are ugly and their appeal to the gay crowd doesn’t impress me at all.

J. C. Penney's father was a farmer and unpaid Baptist minister who taught his children to believe in the Golden Rule. Young Penney wanted to be a lawyer but could not afford college tuition. After high school he worked on his father's farm and found employment as a clerk in a local dry goods store. He moved to Colorado, where he opened his own butcher shop, which promptly failed. He went to work in another dry goods store, and after a few years he was offered the job of assistant manager at a Wyoming shop called the Golden Rule Store. The store's name reflected his own philosophy of life, so he believed it was God's will that he take the job.

When the Golden Rule Store proved prosperous, Penney was offered a chance to buy a one-third share in a new store, in Kemmerer, Wyo. The price was $2,000, and he had only $500 in savings, but he signed an I.O.U. for the rest. The Golden Rule Store in Kemmerer opened on 14 Apr 1902, with manager and co-owner Penney living in the attic, and it is now considered the first store in the Penney chain. Within a few years Penney was a partner in three Golden Rule stores, and in 1907 he bought out his partners.

His stores were among the first retailers to offer "one price for all" instead of haggling on almost every sale, and Penney set the price low enough to earn "a fair remuneration and not all the profits the traffic will bear". He instituted a profit-sharing program for store managers, which was later expanded to include all employees. Within seven years he had twenty-two stores, and in 1913 the business was incorporated as J.C. Penney Stores Company, keeping "the Golden Rule" as an informal motto. For many years he oversaw the company's hiring, and explained his philosophy as, "Give me a stock clerk with a goal and I'll give you a man who will make history. Give me a man with no goals and I'll give you a stock clerk". When the owner of his home town dry goods store retired in 1927, Penney bought the Hamilton, Missouri, store where he had first worked, and made it Penney's 500th store.

After the 1929 stock crash, Penney lost virtually all his personal wealth, and borrowed against his life insurance policies to help the company meet its payroll. Suffering his own depression, he briefly checked into John Harvey Kellogg's Battle Creek Sanitarium. The company, of course, survived and prospered again, and so did its founder. After regaining his health and wealth, he became known as a philanthropist, establishing or giving many millions to numerous charities. He also wrote several folksy books offering homespun homilies of running a business by ethical principles.

By virtually all accounts Penney's approach was sincere, and "the Golden Rule" was more than a mere slogan. He rode city buses to work at Penney's New York headquarters, and as late as the 1960s, while Penney was in his 70s, he regularly visited his company's stores and occasionally stepped behind the counter to help customers. Penney was one of the first businessmen to call his employees "associates", but they actually were associates -- by his death in 1971, the company's profit-sharing program included all of its 50,000 store workers, and Penney's was America's second largest non-grocery retailer behind Sears Roebuck. With decades of more ordinary business management since his death, the company's reputation and profits have, of course, declined.

I used to work at Penney’s in the 1980s. It was Middle America, but wanted to be more sophisticated, so it started a designer line called Halston for women. That bombed because no sophisticated/rich people wanted to buy clothes at Penney’s and no Penney’s shoppers wanted to pay that much. They seem to still have this problem today, of wanting to be thought worldly, yet having a more pedestrian customer base. I can skip Penneys, but the other retailers are pro-gay also, aren’t they?

Here is what I just wrote them:

"To Whom it May Concern at J.C. Penney:

I saw that your May 2012 catalogue has a homosexual couple in it. It is your company and livelihood, and as such, is your choice to run as you wish. I neither agree with nor approve of your effort to normalize and legitimatize homosexuality. As such, I will not purchase any merchandise from your organization, and will recommend to family and friends who feel as I do, to refrain from doing business with you as well.

It may very well be that this is a calculated marketing decision, but that would be too generous, especially in view of the role Ellen Degeneres carries out for your company.

There are many people who feel that promoting homosexuality is harmful to the individual, to the family, and to society, and I am one of them. If you wish to promote homosexuality as a normal and healthy lifestyle, you will do so without my support or my money. I normally would not welcome the bankruptcy of a company that pays people to work for a living, but since I see your open and enthusiastic support of homosexuality as morally bankrupt, I can only have the point of view that your company should lose the financial means to assist in the cultural erosion of society. And I say that with regret, considering the many employees who surely work for you who feel as I do, but have to accept your advocacy as a condition of keeping their jobs."

I went to work as a management trainee for Penney’s in Salt Lake City in early 1964 when I graduated from college. My tenure there was only three months long when my draft board sent me a “Report for Physical” notice. Penney’s paid us in cash every week, and we received silver dollars instead of dollar bills. Wish I had kept them!

Right on. Although just a small (but growing) percentage of the population, these sadists have fat wallets. Having conquered Hollywood, the mainstream media and their reporters, received acceptance in faux “Christian” religious groups, school curriculum, academic and the professions, and have gotten the nod from the White House, they have planted their iconic rainbow flag in Silicon Valley and are now moving on to infiltrate reputable businesses.

There is a direct correlation between incompetent management of a company and stupid decisions.

This week we have lackluster-results JC Penney with lesbian models and about-to-go-bankrupt Best Buy being a platinum sponsor for the Muslims.

Both stupid decisions done by incompetent management.

President Obama cashing in on gay marriage stance, selling LGBT merchandise

The items include “I'm out for Obama" T-shirts, beer koozies that read "LGBT for Obama" and even baby
onesies with messages like "My two moms support Obama.” The items cost anywhere from $10 to $40.

Some ideas for bumper stickers:

Filthy Perverts For Obama
Obama - He's Queer Too
Support America's First Queer President
He'll Do Anything For Your Vote
Let Obama Ride You To Victory
“Bathhouse Barry: On the down-low for homos”
“Bathhouse Barry: Goin’ down for his country”
“Bathhouse Barry: Sucking it up for America”
“Bathhouse Barry: Leadership from behind(s)”

"Quietly, gradually and largely without protest, advertising is starting to reflect new attitudes and new realities about who we are. “Our cultures change and I think the broader consumer and the spending power in the country has become more progressive,” Eric Bovim, CEO of the ad firm Gibraltar Associates said."

If 'who we are' i.e. the homosexual population as a percentage of the general population holds steady (and since they don't procreate by definition) then how does this equate to 'change?'

Once again, the militants lack consistency. If being straight or gay is equally valid then why or how would promotion of homosexuality represent 'progress?'

Is there a boycott list thread?

Why even bother anymore? How do we even keep up with this stuff?

Several months back there were threads on FR saying to shop at Stabucks because they supported the 2nd amendment. Then threads not to shop at Starbucks for some other reason.

Same with Lowes. Threads on FR saying to shop there because Home Depot supported the Homo movement. So I go to Lowes 2 weekends in a row and their were Girls Scouts in the lobby selling cookies and then there were threads to boycott Lowes .

.TBH my GAD meter is broken anymore.
