Their most damning statement: "Hallmark is a private company obviously driven by greed".

So... here's the letter they're trying to get people to send to the chairman of Hallmark Greeting Cards.

Quote:
"Dear Chairman Hall:

I am surprised that Hallmark is promoting an unhealthy lifestyle which is illegal in 48 states. There was a time Hallmark told us to send the very best. Sorry to see you have taken a giant step down. No more. American Greeting Cards, your competitor, will be getting my business."



But... but.... American Greetings brought us Super Lesbian Girl!

[super lesbian girl = my hero]

Huh, that's funny. I don't remember the lifestyle being illegal. Bastards.

By the way, I just looked for a Hallmark Coming Out card and all I found was this:

http://tinyurl.com/23vntg

Which has a tiny thing on the side that says "Show support for X,Y,Z" and coming out just happens to be on that list.

On the things to care about scale, this is registering in negative integers for me.

I really don't appreciate American Greetings forcing their unhealthy superhero lifestyle choice on me.

Look more like there line of Bestiality card line given it just had dogs on it.

I would have done some more along lines of

"Remember dad when you were a teen and dreamed about two girls kissing" (open card) " I hope I made all your dreams come true"


" Mom remember when you day dreamed of a strong ruged man to came and take you away" (open card) " I thank you for letting me live your dream"

" Mom you are my hero and I am going to be someones hero too"
(open card) "Ill be know as Super Lesbian Girl"

Just a few start with

I want a line of traumatizing cards.

"Dad, remember when I was a little boy, and you sent me to Uncle Rick's house and I told you we fished on the lake? Well, he really fished in my no-no hole with his man pole. It made me 'reel' happy. Happy Father's Day"

When are THOSE coming, I'd like to know.

I subscribe to AFA's email list just to keep tabs. Sometimes it's funny, but mostly it's infuriating.
