'One Million Moms' Goes Nuts Over Manscaping Ad: VIDEO

Norelco

One Million Moms has issued a call to action against a Norelco body grooming ad because it suggests a man is shaving his pubes.

They shriek:

The new Norelco commercial goes beyond a close facial shave to body grooming well below the chest and back. This commercial went WAY TOO FAR! During the commercial, it shows a man trimming hair in different areas of his body. Toward the end, it shows him standing with his boxer shorts down with hair falling to the floor as he uses the hair trimmer. It is implied that he is shaving in his private area. The dialogue in the ad is equally offensive. "I'd wink at me; I'd hug me," he says. Then he looks in the mirror, admires himself, and says, "I'd F*** me." The F-word is bleeped out. But then they display their website, www.IdFAQme.com. This is clearly a play on the F-word.

The ad shouldn't run at any time. It is not only inappropriate for children; it is offensive to adults also. The company's response to people's concerns is in poor taste. They are basically saying that they don't care, and they are going to run the commercial anyway. That just doesn't cut it.

Watch the ad, AFTER THE JUMP...

One Million Moms is 'Shipping Its Pants' Over New Kmart Ad: VIDEO

Kmart

One Million Moms are "shipping their pants" over Kmart's super-viral new ad and have sent out an action alert condemning Kmart for airing inappropriate 'filth' (to be read in an outraged voice):

The entire commercial's dialogue has various people saying ship or shipped instead of the s-word, including a family, a child, a Kmart employee, a senior citizen couple and other customers shopping in the store.

Normally, we do not provide a link since One Million Moms does not want to contribute to this filth being spread around even more, but we made an exception this time to show how ridiculous and disgusting this ad really is.

Please send Kmart an email letter requesting they cancel their new "Ship my pants" commercial immediately!

One Million Moms 'Moving On' From Ellen DeGeneres Protest

DeGeneresHoliday

One Million Moms, a conservative group made up of far less than one million people, made a name for itself earlier this year by boycotting JC Penney after the retailer cast lesbian entertainer Ellen DeGeneres as a spokesperson. They were also incensed - actually, they used the word "disturbed" - when Penney featured gay dads in their catalogue. JC Penney stood by DeGeneres and LGBT inclusion through it all.

In addition to the JCP "action," OMM also protested Victoria's Secret, Urban Outfitters and other clothiers whose advertising or approach they find objectionable, read: contemporary. And they threw a fit over gay characters in Marvel and DC comic books.

The anti-DeGeneres protest, by far the group's most high-profile gripe, went on for a while, seemed to fizzle, but then inflamed anew when the talk show host appeared in a JC Penney holiday commercial.

"A new JCP ad features Ellen and three elves. JCP has made their choice to offend a huge majority of their customers again. Christians must now vote with their wallets," the group said last week.

Now one would assume OMM would be gearing up for a huge holiday blitz against the company, but Christian Post reported late last week that despite the most recent call, OMM is calling off the hounds. They're throwing in the discount towel and giving up their fight against DeGeneres and the retailer.

"We're not taking action, we're moving on. We've already contacted the company," said Monica Cole, the group's ringleader.

So does that mean this is the last we'll hear from One Million Moms? About DeGeneres, maybe. Forever? Doubtful.But this should give us a nice reprieve for the holidays. Thanks, OMM!

'The New Normal' Fires Back at One Million Moms with Ridiculous Wingnut Ellen Barkin: VIDEO

Barkin

Many of you will recall the mission launched over the summer by One Million Moms to boycott NBC's The New Normal for "subjecting families to the decay of morals and values" for portraying a gay couple having a child through a surrogate.

In last night's episode, Ellen Barkin, who plays a wingnut mother in the show, schooled a group of future One Million Moms on marriage:

"Marriage is a sacred vow taken between a heterosexual man and a woman preferably over the age of 18 to stay together until death do us part. And you know why? So you can have somebody to find your body when you die. You don't want to be that weird smell coming out of an apartment of cats do you?"
