The gay community in California just won a major victory as they declared same sex marriage legal in the state yesterday. The ruling is on hold, but it’s still a step in the right direction for the gay community’s struggle. Now some organization wants JCPenney to give up their spokesperson because she’s gay.

One Million Women are trying to get the nation to get her removed simply because she’s openly gay. According to Yahoo! News One Million Moms wrote on their website:

One Million Moms is asking people to call JC Penney to complain. Do you feel like complaining right now? I think One Million Moms better heed GLAAD’S advice and leave Ellen’s followers alone.
