Maybe we should organize a counter-campaign

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]siliconalleycat)

Some of the dominionists want to boycott the American Girl line of dolls and books because the company supports Girls, Inc.

I Can campaign

As one blogger whined: This company is popular among young girls, selling everything from dolls to books with reading curriculums. That's why I was shocked to learn that this company has teamed up with the charity Girls Inc. and is selling "I Can" bracelets to benefit the liberal organization. Unfortunately, Girls Inc. supports abortion and believes that young girls should be able to develop "sexual identities" and be given birth control. Keep in mind that girls as young as toddlers all the way to teens are the target audience of the American Girl company. I don't think my 5-year-old needs to learn about "sexual empowerment" when all she's worried about is learning fancy ballet moves.

Hello, folks. If the company donates money to Girls, Inc., does that mean that the dolls and books are going to carry messages in favor of lesbianism, or abortion, or even (gasp) birth control?

The Pro-Life Action League is urging parents, grandparents and other family members to write and call American Girl President Ellen L. Brothers to object to the company's support for Girls Inc. Letters, phone calls and e-mails should be directed to:
Ellen L. Brothers, President
American Girl
8400 Fairway Place
Middleton, WI 53562
Tel: 1-800-845-0005
Fax: 608-828-4790
E-Mail: ellen.brothers@americangirl.com

Let's write - but in SUPPORT of American Girl's support of Girls, Inc. - and let's buy some "I Can" bands!

Edited to add Sad to say, some people are taking this "boycott" seriously, as note here: "No more American Girl dolls. No more American Girl books." *sigh*

Become the Other


Take any vigorous speech from a Fundamentalist Christian and replace the words "Lord", "Jesus", and "God" with "Allah". Now they sound exactly like those big bad fundamentalists from the Middle East, huh?
