Something to do: Mom, in her unending desire to do good in the world, sent me to this page... Kraft Proudly Supports the Gay Games. This page is brought to you by the good people at the American Family Association. They show you absolutely shocking pictures of gay people doing gay things and think you ought to write Kraft and tell them what you think of them sponsoring this, and being the helpful people they are, they give you a handy dandy web page/form letter where you can either send a letter of their phrasing or they encourage you to write one of your own. I wrote one of my own. Their letter goes like this.
|"I am greatly disappointed to learn of Kraft's sponsorship of the Gay Games. I ask that Kraft withdraw its sponsorship. |
If Kraft does not withdraw its sponsorship of the Gay Games, and if American Family Association calls for a boycott of Kraft, I will participate."
...whereas I had American Family sent a letter on my behalf that said this...
|"I am greatly pleased to learn of Kraft's sponsorship of the Gay Games. I ask that Kraft continue its sponsorship. |
If Kraft does not withdraw its sponsorship of the Gay Games, I will try to make a point of purchasing more of your products."
I personally am highly amused at the idea of using American Family's tool for complaining to Kraft as simply that, a tool, and expressing the freedom given to us by the internet to support Kraft through the very programs created to bully them. Feel free to join me.
Musings: At what point do you decide you're whining too much on your lj? If you're feeling really down, on the one hand, people might want to help you, but on the other hand, what if everyone is sick to death of you posting "my ice cream was really low quality AGAIN today.... I may never eat ice cream again *angst*" And how many times should you EXPECT people to listen to that crap anyways?
I never know what to say on this fu**ing thing.
