After anti-gay conservative group One Million Moms (OMM) criticized Disneyland’s annual Gay Day, a new pro-gay organization calling itself Millions of Moms for Love (MML) created a Facebook page in response.
“We will not stand silently while groups like One Million Moms or the American Family Foundation spread their anti-gay message,” reads the site’s page. “We believe every human being has the right to love who he or she was born to love and not suffer discrimination because of it!”
OMM was against people who identify as LGBT invading the “happiest place on Earth.”
“Homosexuals, bisexuals and transvestites will be at the Magic Kingdom with an agenda and purpose different than what would be expected at Disney,” read an email letter by OMM. “Homosexuals will be celebrating the 23rd anniversary of Gay Day wearing matching Gay Day merchandise, such as T-shirts. There will also be transvestites dressed in drag showing their support for the event.
“This event is planned with the intent to expose and desensitize children to this lifestyle by same-sex couples holding hands, hugging and kissing. In short, a Gay Day participant’s main goal is to be seen versus seeing Disney World,” the letter continued.
Texas native Darcy Christ began the MML page earlier this month, and believes that not all mothers are filled with “messages of hate.”
“A majority of American moms believe that every person has the right to love another person, same sex or not,” said Christ.
OMM has vocally opposed many issues regarding anything LGBT-related in the media. The conservative organization boycotted JCPenny’s over the hiring of Ellen DeGeneres as the new spokesperson as well as a gay Father’s day ad, argued against a same-sex marriage in an Archie comic, and spoke against Philip Norelco’s ad for enabling “manscaping.”
OMM also claimed to affect JCPenny’s quarter losses as well as The New Normal’s premature cancellation.
