There are things you read and just shake your head...

When Marshall Field's employed a Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs theme for its 2004 holiday festivities, the Chicago-born retailer received some complaints that it was promoting the homosexual lifestyle, an executive said recently.

The concerned citizens divined that there was a "hidden gay agenda" in Field's theme "because seven men were living together," Gregory Clark, vice president of creative services for Field's in Minneapolis, recounted last month at a Retail Advertising & Marketing Association conference in Chicago.
:rolleyes:

Well considering Spongebob Squarepants and Tinky Winky are gay....

Why hasn't the religious right gone after Bert and Ernie - the took baths together!

Didn't they actually say that Bert was gay and he died of AIDS?

There's always going to be some crackpots that complain about something that they perceive as incorrect. For example, I think GWB is a ****ing moron and cannot believe that he was hired AGAIN. Me = crackpot. Anyway, I think these people should accuse Paul Bunyan of bestiality, after all, his 'best friend' was a giant blue ox. Clearly he has an 'animal banging agenda'.

Jackasses.

Nice find of the article though, really makes me smile. I was getting worried that the number of 'tard eediots in the US was dropping!

Right back where I started...
Then what about the Lone Ranger? He must of had a double agenda - Silver and Tonto. ;) or maybe Kirk, Spock and Bones - the fearsome Threesome, or even Big Bird and Snuffy, or how about Batman and Robin, sheesh next they will be saying that Michael Jackson has some kind of agenda - ;)

Taking a classic like snow white and making an issue of it is ludicrous. Bleh...that just really annoys me. Some people need to find a real hobby.

This is probably the same group that was boycotting stores saying happy holidays.
The 7 dwarf were obviously transexuals! Good grief I thought everyone knew that.


Sleepy was tired from all the sex
Doc kept'm in AZT and penicillan
Sneezy was a coke addict
dopey-well thats why they call it dope!
bashful was that way because he had not had the "operation" yet
Happy, had the operation!
Grumpy was in need of hormones


edit, Was snow white just a cross dresser in drag?
(sorry had to do that!)

I've seen a (German?) cartoon version which (more than) suggests that they are not gay... far from it actually... :D
I've seen that too - in Amsterdam... I've never heard Snow White and Seven Dwarves in the same light since.

If the dwarves weren't gay then I feel desperately sorry for them; stuck in the middle of the woods without any women around until Snow White showed up. Then again, their decor does kinda go against the gay stereotype - no job on Queer Eye for the Straight Guy for those dwarves! :)

That is very, very, sad. It is a good story and you should rent it.

I have it on DVD for my 3 girls, they love it.

Actually, neither have I. We have the DVD, but the part with the witch scared my youngest daughter, so she's been unwilling to watch it even though she's older now.

Which I guess is a good thing - I wouldn't want to expose her to that kind of entertainment... :D

Since same-sex individuals interacting apparently promote a homosexual lifestyle, and members of the opposite sex interacting clearly promote promiscuity, I propose that all cartoons, from now on, involve a large rock which rolls around telling Bible stories and crushing children once they reach puberty, thus ensuring that they die "pure".

:rolleyes:

me neither ... never was shown on tv...as far as i know

but i'm pretty sure disney made the story a bit more kid friendly and excluded the "stepmother has to dance with heated up/red glowing iron shoes untill she dies" part from the end ;)

Frankly with the current trend of the gay fad in telelvison and movie production in the US, you'd think their agents would be getting them more gigs then ever before! Wasn't that Sneezy in Goldmember?

Not sure I can support something that promotes rock and roll.

Or Rolling Rock - since alcohol is evil. I should have put more thought into it; it's just hard to think like a fundamentalist, since their way of thinking doesn't seem to involve actual thought. Perhaps a show about falling Bibles, burning with righteous anger, that smite children when they think impure thoughts?

Hmmm. Not bad - I can get over the violence thing since it is enforcing such a good message. But I don't think it should be limited to children, it should be open to striking everyone but clergy (since we know they're pure) and perhaps Republicans, since ultimately they have our best interests at heart.

I vote we just skip to the crushing people part. Easier to decide posthumously if they were pure or not. :p

This is so much better than the (untrue) rumor I heard about the dwarves being the seven stages of cocaine addiction... They're queens? All right! Dwarf queen disco party!
