Barnes & Noble and Amazon Sell "Funny" Homophobic Calendar

I have pretty thick skin. Growing up in a Jewish family and being a fat kid you learn to roll with the punches to a point. The new "humorous" calendar being sold by Barnes & Noble and Amazon really takes to cake for offensive.

Titled, "I'm Not Gay, I'm Just A Sissy" it reenforces about every negative stereotype possible.  I can only imagine the outrage if this was a 2012 Minstrel Calendar with happy laughing black face performers pictured, or a 2012 "Women are so Dumb" calendar.

This is the kind of trash I expect to see at a KKK rally, not Barnes & Noble or Amazon.  If you feel the same way, let these online booksellers know how you feel.
