Well, the haters are at it again

This time over a fairly innocuous catalogue ad.

J.C. Penney Catalog Features Gay Couple With Child, Freakout Ensues (this features a nice photo of the ad)

The text of the ad makes it clear that the women are, indeed, a lesbian couple with their children, along with the grandmother. The women have wedding rings, if you look closely, as well. This has freaked out One Million Moms and other anti-gay groups, who are calling for JC Penney to remove the ad or face a boycott. As you may remember, JC Penney faced similar flak for their use of lesbian Ellen DeGeneres as a spokeswoman.

Show JC Penney that you care and appreciate this. Sign a petition at Change.org.
