Tell Amazon and Barnes & Noble to Stop Selling Anti-Gay Calendar

    1. Petition by

      GLAAD

UPDATE: The Calendar is no longer available on Barnes & Noble's website, and a spokesperson for the company told us it has never been available in stores.

Amazon.com is selling a calendar by self-proclaimed "Christian Cartoonist" Joe King called, "I'm Not Gay, I'm Just A Sissy; 12 Months of Sexual Confusion."

King’s cartoons employ outdated and highly-offensive stereotypes about LGBT people, and more specifically, gay men and transgender women. The LGBT community has expressed its outrage, and King has responded on his Facebook page – with the use of even more dehumanizing and insulting comments against the transgender community, the gay community, and people living with HIV/AIDS.

This product contributes to the stereotypes used to stifle progress toward equality.

Let Amazon know that their support for this calendar, by featuring it for sale in their stores, is demeaning to their customers and unacceptable.

      I feel that it's very wrong to sell anything that is anti-gay. Please get rid of that 2012 "I'm Not Gay, I'm Just A Sissy" calendar.
