One Million Mom's latest outrage? GEICO commercial promoted bestiality!

Angry parents are up in arms over a “repulsive” cellphone app commercial that they say promotes bestiality.
One Million Moms wants auto insurance firm Geico to pull its latest TV campaign in which a woman appears to be flirting with a pig.
The conservative Christian group that monitors children’s programming issued a statement to condemn the clip.
“The Geico marketing team may have thought this would be humorous, but it is disgusting to see how the company takes lightly the act of bestiality,” One Million Moms said in a statement.
The press release, which urges members to email their disgust to the firm, added that the advert was “repulsive” and “unnecessary.”
It was also a “horrible commercial for families to see,” the group said.
The commercial starts with Maxwell the Geico pig and the woman in a parked car on what appears to be a lover’s lane.
Not knowing the car has broken down, the woman seems keen to make out with the pig. But he is uninterested and instead shows her the Geico app and the game Fruit Ninjas on his cellphone.
Geico has not commented on the complaint.
Actually in this case I don't disagree with them. That commercial is disgusting.
All of Geico's commercials are disgusting and lame.
You couldn't pay me to take out a policy through them.
Yeah, they got this one right. But just this one. It's perfect for an Onion headline.
AREA WOMAN FUCKS PIG ON LOVERS LANE.
OMM is always in hysterics over something.
Oh, shut the fuck up, you fraus.
Has anyone been back to their Facebook page since Joanne Eberhardt visited? I wish I could remember some of the other names.
Cheryl Bexton R6.
Yes, Cheryl Bexton!
Is the commercial really that bad? I'm reminded of watching so many afternoon Looney Toons where Bugs Bunny dressed in drag and tried to seduce Elmer and his other foes. I just never got the idea that they'd fuck when I was little.
The irony of One Million Moms complaining about a commercial suggesting that a fat pig is getting laid.
When are they going to do something about Donald Duck running around without any pants? Hmmm?
Yup, jealous bitches, r9!
R13, they'd better stay away from cartoons.
Oh my frikken head! I've seen this commercial dozens of times and, while it's not one of my favorites, not once did my mind go to...bestiality.
I think the ad is obnoxious, but never once did I retreat to thinking bestiality, omm are depraved.
R17 one thing I've learned about OMM is they are dirty-minded cunts. They were bitching about a show once that had a scene with 2 young girls in bed together for a sleepover. They were shocked and appalled that a tv network was pushing lesbianism. They see filth where none exists.
What kind of fucking sicko thinks of sex when two kids, who are barely pubescent, are in a bed together?
That pig is so obviously gay.
It's clearly not an actual pig, so I'm thinking they should really be objecting to Geico promoting dwarf plushie sex.
I think the girl just wanted to make out. Would be a stretch to just assume she wanted him to pork her.
Plushies are always promoting sex, don't you know? And if you don't know about plushies and suspect sexual activity (I know, I know. A convention full of adults have sex, just like Nikki Haley.), you can look it up on GOOGLE to confirm. Smell the outrage.
‘Furry Convention of Unacceptable Adults’ Scars One Hotel Guest’s Cheerleading Children for Life
For a few days each year, Texans of the furry persuasion head down to the Crowne Plaza North Dallas-Addison to let their fur flag fly at the annual Furry Fiesta fandom convention.
But one guest — let's call him Tony A. — found it outrageous that his children were allowed to witness adults parade around in animal costumes outside of, say, any theme park or sporting event or Chuck E. Cheese's since the invention of mascots, and posted a smoldering anti-furry jeremiad on the hotel's TripAdvisor page.
It's a long one, so here are a few select passages that convey the crux of Tony A.'s "yiff in Hell" indignation (sic where appropriate):
In regards to problems, these made for a horrific stay. First of all, I like to bring up the ineptitude of the groups department on scheduling a Furry Convention of unacceptable adults, along with a young girls and boys cheerleading team. The things that our children (ages 4-17) witnessed there, are the kinds of things that we as parents hate to even think that they would be exposed to. My 10 year old daughter and my 8 year old son witnessed lude and lascivious behavior in the pool, outside by these furry people.
These "people",if I can call them that, were doing unspeakable things outside on the hallways and in their rooms with their doors open. I got into an argument and almost a physical confrontation with two of them because they screamed at a kid that was speaking loudly in the hallway, as they were walking by him, and insulted him with major profanity…this was a 10 year old, folks. Lucky for this kid, my good friend's kid, I came out of my room at the same exact time as they walked by him and confronted them. On another instance, three of these "people" had very dirty and awful comments for a couple of our 6 year old girls. The comments to myself and the girls' parents were offensive and almost turned things violent as the fathers weren't exactly too happy with them. [...]
I am not sure if you folks know what a Furry Rave is. A regular rave is a party where folks dance, drink, party and do their drugs. A regular rave would have been unacceptable then. A Furry Rave included more lude and lascivious behavior, along with the other factors included in a regular rave. That is not only unacceptable for a guest, it should have been unacceptable to this hotel. How did I find out all of these details about this "rave" and what these furry conventions are about? GOOGLE!!!!! How hard is it for someone to do a little due diligence before they schedule something like this? This research took me 5 MINUTES to do. How do these people schedule these two groups together????
Read the rest here.
In response, the hotel's general manager reached out to Tony A. and has apparently provided him with sufficient restitution, because the raging review has since disappeared (thankfully, Google Cache remembers all).
As this year's Furry Fiesta appears to have gone ahead as scheduled, it seems the hotel has wisely chosen not to sever their ties with the anthropomorphic art community over the displeasure of a single furryphobe.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
