    I’m an old straight guy, and I often feel like the whole sexual orientation thing is blown out of proportion, sometimes by both sides. I don’t regularly watch Ellen, but when I do she makes me laugh, and, instinctively, I feel like she is a good person. I commend J.C. Penny’s stance in the face of intolerance. With that said, tomorrow I will go to Penny’s and buy that new set of sheets my wife thinks we need, and may even look around and get a couple other things, just because.

    I was searching for some outfits for my almost 5 month old
    great-niece. I found several at Macy’s & JCPenny. I saved them
    In my cart at each store. JCPenny hiring Ellen
    Earned my loyalty. I have my credit card in my hand
    Where I will purchase my online order with
    JCPenny. My new go to dept store.

    I for one will be making more of an effort to shop at JC Penny!

    Companies do not exist to be politically brave. Penny’s ostentatious affirmation of Ellen as a spokesperson suggests their calculation that siding with what Ellen represents is more profitable than siding with what the “Million Moms” represent.

    I do not say that to Diss Penny’s, but to point out the turning of the tide. Pity Komen failed to see it.

    I am so proud of JCPenny. Unlike Lowes, they stand behind their principles and now, they will support them more than ever. Keep doing what you’re doing, JCP.
