The Tattooed Hippie Pirate Mommas http://tattooedhippiepiratemomma.blogspot.com/ offered a $3,000 donation to a local child advocacy organization only to have it returned after the organization learned the funds were raised from the sale of vintage pinup calendars featuring the mommas.
The advocacy group felt the images were of a sexual nature and rejected the donation because of the “highly conservative” nature of their organization.
The photos show less skin than Lady Mary’s Décolletage on Downton Abbey. The poses are tasteful compared to those on Call the Midwife. The costumes on Dancing with the Stars are a wardrobe malfunction away from creating a viewing sensation.
NFL cheerleaders appear weekly in barely there attire yet donate time to fundraising for local charities.
Houston firefighters established a fund to aid local children who suffered burns or injuries from fires http://www.houstonburnedchildrensfund.com .
The fund receives the majority of its money through the sale of calendars featuring ripped, bare chested, buff fire fighters.
The Patriot Guard Riders are hardly the picture of conservatism, yet few would discount the comfort they provide to families of fallen soldiers.
A recent report in the news stated that nearly thirty percent of those eighteen years and younger were living below the poverty level last year. Given those statistics, the Tattooed Hippie Pirate Mommas will have no problem locating an organization who would be happy to receive $3,000.
Looking a gift horse in the mouth is one thing, but to behave like the opposite end of the horse is another matter and that includes highly conservative advocacy organizations.
