ELTON JOHN MAGAZINE COVER CENSORED IN SUPERMARKET

Via Pop Eater

A Harps supermarket in Mountain View, Ark., censored an Us Weekly cover featuring Elton John, husband David Furnish and their new baby, Zachary. Deemed inappropriate for “young Harps shoppers,” the store placed a “family shield” in front of the magazine.

Twitter user @jennhudd saw the censored cover and began tweeting a photo to celebrities like Ellen DeGeneres, Anderson Cooper and Neil Patrick Harris, asking them to “bring attention” to the store’s decision.

The Mountain View Harps responded to a call from PopEater on Wednesday afternoon with a curt “no comment” before hanging up. A call to the corporate office had us placed on hold, redirected and sent to a voice mail when asked for official comment. Continue Reading…..

This happened in America’s Bible belt – the DEEP SOUTH. I say no more.

  1. This fad among certain “rich” gay couples to act like heterosexuals is totally misguided. The reasons are selfish and border on a fantasy to think the children they seek to raise will grow up with love and be “normal” as adults. One of the not discussed reasons gay couples seek to adopt kids or produce them with surrogate “mothers” is to get additional tax reductions. Parenting for gay’s have never been an issue for thousands of years, but our media has made it a concern and “right” for gay couples to behave like heterosexuals for no other reason than to reap tax benefits from their governments by having an additionl deduction.

  3. Gay, Schmay. My personal opinion on the “gay’ issue don’t matter a ding, dang, dong. But which ole, fat heterosexual coulda gwaan so? Trust me most gay men do not necessarily want children of their own, but especially in the African American gay male community ( they may be gay, but are still black) many, due to family schisms, a family member gone off the rails etc, gay males this way naturally become parents. But what with the European madness of boxing everything of into neat corners ( nuclear family, anyone?) they like to act like everything is new. Elton, love…. gay men with children is so 10 ad. It’s probably because you’re so nuff why the magazine came suction wrapped. Lol!
