There’s a story of a man on a beach full of starfish who is throwing them back into the water one at a time. When told that he can’t save them all and will hardly make a difference, he picks one up, throws it in the ocean, and says “to that one, I made a difference.”
Have you ever thought about how funny it would be if the man was actually throwing the starfish out to a shiver of sharks or a cast of crabs? He thinks he’s a Savior but he’s actually throwing them out to their death. It’s a plot twist worthy of an M. Night Shyamalan movie.
On that note…
A Utah mom recently made headlines when she bought an entire supply of t-shirts at PacSun because they had images of women in lingerie screen printed on them.
Clearly it was offensive and I was most concerned about the youth and the children that would be viewing this.
If buying $600 worth of dirty t-shirts sounds like a really terrible approach to ridding the world of all of its evil then that’s because it is. I don’t want to point out all of Judy’s logical fallacies but, just for fun, I’ll address a few:
- If you’re really concerned about displays with scantily clad women, why didn’t you buy out the entire Victoria Secret store too? You’re worried about t-shirts? That place has huge banners with pictures of provocative (albeit photo-shopped) women in lingerie.
- If you didn’t want your 18 year-old son to see the shirts, why did you take them all home with you? Sure, there’s a small chance the shirts would have still been on display when he went back to the mall, but there’s probably a greater chance he’ll “accidentally” see them in your closet while looking for… um… a hanger…
- Why are you trying to force everyone (PacSun, the t-shirt manufacturers, and “the children”) to abide by your standard of moral decency. I’m not arguing that the t-shirts aren’t immoral, but if you are Mormon (and judging by your behavior and geographic location, I think I can safely assume you are) then you of all people should know that it was Lucifer’s initial plan to rid the world of agency and force everyone to be good.
- Finally, a spike in sales for those shirts will only encourage more production of dirty t-shirts. And where do you think they will ship them first? It doesn’t take a business degree to figure out that those shirts are headed straight to where they sell the best; i.e., those things are coming straight to a PacSun near YOU.
Judy, pick your battles. And when you do, study your opponent and learn the best way to defeat him. Don’t act on an impulse. Aside from your 15 minutes of fame, all you have to show for yourself now is consumer debt and pornographic clothes that you can’t even sleep in.
Did you know that Disney’s movie Frozen was about being gay? Ya, me neither. But I read a blog post from wellbehavedmormonwoman talking about Frozen’s hidden “homosexual agenda.” Apparently the movie’s main song “Let It Go” was only an anthem for all people to come out of the closet and didn’t have anything to do with overcoming your own inhibitions and embracing your differences in general.
WBMW is pretty thorough in her review of the movie Frozen, but I ask, why are you stopping there? I mean, Disney has been pushing it’s hidden homosexual agenda for years, right? As long as we’re over thinking things, let me point out a few more:
- The Lion King: Timon and Pumbaa are pretty chummy in the jungle for a couple of dudes. Need I remind you that Timon actually cross dresses in a luau scene?
- Beauty and the Beast: Lafou constantly follows Gaston everywhere and practically sings him a love song about how great he is.
- The Fox and the Hound: Another forbidden relationship (and if I’m not mistaken, I believe Tod and Copper were both male). Appalling.
- Toy Story: A little boy whose favorite action figure is a cowboy named “Woody”. Come on Disney. Could you be more obvious?!
- Wall-E: Robot love. Disgusting.
- Up: Sure, the old man was married, but he was completely obsessed with Charles Muntz since he was a kid. And did you see his face when he actually met him? Gross.
- Mulan: Transvestite. **Author nearly fainted just thinking about it**
The list goes on. How much more can we take of all of Disney’s liberal agenda?
[Side note: Just for kicks I thought I'd start a list of other things this lady should avoid to prevent future abhorrence:
- Skittles commercials. Taste the rainbow?! Could it be more obvious?! Candies with vibrantly colored shells and fruity flavors. Sickening.
- The Oscars. Sure Ellen is the most popular daytime talk show host in the country (dare I say world?) but did you know she's (whispered) "gay"? You're a well behaved Mormon woman though so I'm sure you had no intention of watching anyway (because it's on Sunday).
- Modern Family. It's Anne Romney's favorite tv show but she's probably not as well behaved of a Mormon woman as you.
If you have more to add to the list then you can put them in the comments.]
Here’s my point: WBMW, you think you’re sending a warning to everyone, but don’t you see that you’re sending a message of hate when you say things like “homosexuals are trying to brainwash everyone”? Fear mongering is great for getting people to read your blog, but don’t do it in the name of my religion. You have a right to your own opinion, but the least you could do is change your pen name. Here’s a few suggestions:
But let’s end this post on a more positive note:
