Conservative Group Protests Lady Gaga Post It Notes

Leave it to a right wing religious group to politicize Post It notes. Lady Gaga and her Born This Way Foundation partnered with Office Depot for Post Its and other school supplies boasting positive and uplifting phrases about being true to oneself. Now, the conservative David Caton of the FFA, which is the Florida Family Association, is protesting the office supplier’s decision to support Gaga’s organization, which centers on LGBT youth as well as any young people out there being bullied. Caton is actually demanding that Office Depot yank its $1 million contribution. Say what?!

Talk about no good deed going unpunished. Caton suggests that the arms open Mother Monster sends an “irresponsible message to many teens who would have eventually chosen to be straight.” Wow. While we’re not going to engage in a political discourse here, Caton’s assertion that homosexuality is a choice, as opposed to Gaga’s mantra of being born that way, is at the heart of his protest of the contribution.

The FFA posted their displeasure on their website, writing:

The one million dollar pledge from Office Depot to the Lady Gaga Born this Way Foundation will influence many teens to embrace homosexuality for their lifetime who may have otherwise worked through their crisis with straight results. Thousands of kids who might have otherwise worked through their pubescent sexual identity issues will be inspired to accept the wrong choice based upon this unscientific, emotionally charged propaganda. What’s brave or kind about telling thousands of sexually frustrated teens that they were Born This Way when a high percentage of them would have ended up taking the straight heterosexual path for life?

Oh boy…

The FFA is so incensed by this partnership that it even posts a link for people to send protest emails to Office Depot. Do you think this is as absurd as we do?
