    LOL, good luck trying to stop Gaga. The number of Little Monsters she has across the world probably exceeds the population of the United States. I'm sure they can take care of her haters icon_wink.gif

    Now I have a sudden urge to buy some pretty pens and highlighters from Office Depot.

    venue35 said Buying a Lady Gaga pen will turn your daughter into a lesbian apparently.

    Would it work on me, too??? {SHUDDER}

    Actually an amazing campaign I didn't know about - thanks Office Depot! Pretty soon AFA will be running out of targets, and their members won't be able to buy anything.

    And it looks like these items are available in stores, not just online. We go to OD all the time but hadn't seen any promotionals about this, so thanks also metta8! icon_biggrin.gif


    And here's what AFA opposes, the goal as stated in this OD campaign:

    "...to support the Born This Way Foundation and their efforts to encourage students to be brave and kind this school year."

    Have you ever heard anything so un-American and un-Christian as being brave and kind, leading to "alcohol and drug abuse, depression and even suicide" and "to a litany of health hazards"? All from a marking pen! [sarcasm]

    I read the sample letter that AFA wants people to send.

    Here it is:

    Sample message AFA:

    Office Depot's support for the "Born this way" campaign is terribly irresponsible.

    There is zero credible evidence that people are born gay. Homosexuality is a poor and dangerous choice, and has been proven to lead to a litany of health hazards to not only the individuals but also society as a whole.

    By backing this social agenda, Office Depot is deceiving our nation's young people into accepting a lifestyle that has proven to increase their chances of becoming victims to alcohol and drug abuse, depression and even suicide.


    I spent too many years trying to force myself to be straight.

    It is so hard to believe that at 20, I was such a fool to believe this trash.icon_cry.gif

    I punished myself for so long over this kind of rhetoric.

    I wish there had been that kind of support in the 80s in the backwoods of Texas. I could've used something like this.

    Making my trip to Office Depot. Got supplies to buy. Lots of supplies.

    It's neither The Gay™ nor the Rejection of Faith ³ that is the cancer killing America.

    It is the the lack of logic.

    Glittery neon pens do not faggotry make. ;)

    Unless you use them to draw one.

    Moar seriously though, the connection between drug abuse/alcoholism/suicide is not because of merely being LGBT, but can be an outgrowth of a lack of support from the larger community to help younger LGBT men and women adjust to grow into who they are.

    The association of (younger) LGBT people with chemical dependency and other psychological issues comes more from a failure of society to accept and nurture them to develop and walk in their strengths, so the ease of release that chemicals (falsely) provide is a shoddy haven from a hateful and generally bigoted society.

    Thankfully this is improving, but the actions of AFA and its allies prove that they are unable to grasp this.

    If they really wanted to address the issues of chemical abuse and suicide affecting LGBT youth, they would seek to give those youth guidance on how to be the best they can be and be themselves.

    Unfortunately, this is akin to asking a pig to fly under its own power.
