    American Girl vs the conservatives

    Dont bother getting your little girl an American Girl dolly if you are a far right conservative. Your people are telling you no! Must be the same group that is anti Disney.

    Re: American Girl vs the conservatives

    Okay, let me see. Buying this doll is bad because money goes to pro-choice groups and going to 'Curves' is okay because profits from that goes to pro-life causes. I get it.

    And what's wrong with being pro-lesbian? People are born gay. Hel-lo?!

    Re: American Girl vs the conservatives

    It's a good thing I'm a liberal Republican then, heehee. I own four American Girl dolls. I bought my daughter her first one two years ago and I'm thinking of buying her second (the native American one is sooo cute!) for her next birthday. And I'm looking forward to the new American Girl movie coming out next month. Boycotts for reasons like those in the article make me .

    Re: American Girl vs the conservatives

    O-nut you read my mind... I was just about to post this!

    I've already sent hate mail to the Conservative Psychos and supportive mail to American Girl and Mattel. I hope others do as well.

    The people who complain send lots of e-mail, and thus get heard. Lets make sure American Girl knows they have support too! I'd hate to see them back down on this one, Girls, Inc. is an organization I fully support!

    Re: American Girl vs the conservatives

    I heard AG has a new slogan. "Buy a doll, become a lesbo!" Another is "We're American Girl, and we LOVES the ladies!!"

    I tried sending a positive email to AG but it wouldnt go through.

    Re: American Girl vs the conservatives

    Okay, I know this may sound really bad, but are the conservatives really worried that lesbians are going to be having abortions? Sorry, that's the first thought that crossed my mind!!


    With love from a conservative/liberal mom whose daughters own 5 American Girl dolls.

    I used to have one of those. I think I popped its head off.

    Angry Re: American Girl vs the conservatives

    Pretty sad, the things self righteous people will attempt to read into a simple gesture of love and acceptance towards someone and/or group and then try to force their narrow way of thinking onto others. It disgusts me.

    I don't own an American Girl doll but I am buying one this evening for my granddaughter.

    Re: American Girl vs the conservatives

    While I don't think I agree with everything that Girls Inc. advocates (based on that story... I didn't go to the site), American Girl is giving money to three specific programs that ave nothing to do with all the controversial issues that the protest is about. So, I don't see too much wrong with that. I just don't quite get it.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Re: American Girl vs the conservatives

    Are there really that many lemmings in the world that will do as ordered to?

    These radicals get press because they are so "off" but I suspect their threatened "boycott" will have a similar effect of a 1.4 earthquake in California.

    But, I'll never get tired of pointing and laughing. Not my usual MO but, in this case it is warranted.
