I'll come up with something in a minute.

Be an asshole, loose your sponsors

So a couple of wacky morning guys advocating beating children with shoes if they act like children, and got their (now former) advertisers angry.

I’ll start at the beginning, a couple of assholes went on a half hour hatefest about kids as young as 5 who are transgender and gender… shall we say gender confused? They went on and on about wanting to beat them, humiliate them and at one point one of them dropped this little gem…

If my son, God forbid, if my son put on a pair of high heels, I would probably hit him with one of my shoes. I would throw a shoe at him. Because you know what? Boys don’t wear high heels. And in my house, they definitely don’t wear high heels.

Now… where does one start? Even if you’re not a big gay supporter, hitting a kid because he tried on a pair of shoes? That’s just something kids do. They try on the things around them. Are these guys so afraid of teh gays that they’d beat their children for any minor variance from the norm? If yes, call social services and yank their kids away immediately.

They’ve already lost five or six of their advertisers, it seems a lot of companies think beating children is a bad thing. What I find really troubling is the approval these nuts have for treating little kids who fail to fit into their very narrow view of normal with violence.

So we went to Chipotle Grill today and drank Snapple to celebrate their yanking support from these asshats. Okay, we drank Izze, they didn’t have any Snapple.
