Will right-wing-nut-job-homophobes not stop at anything? They’ve now gone on to attack this cute little kid, son of J. Crew Exec Jenna Lyons, for liking pink nail polish. No joke.
Will right-wing-nut-job-homophobes not stop at anything? They’ve now gone on to attack this cute little kid, son of J. Crew Exec Jenna Lyons, for liking pink nail polish. No joke. I got the heads up on this story in an email from our friends at OutMedia, its so hilare it will make you cry, or vomit…
The J. Crew ad titled “Saturday with Jenna“, shows a picture of Lyons, and her (4-yr-old?) son Beckett giggling next to a block quote which reads: Lucky for me I ended up with a boy whose favorite color is pink. Toenail painting is way more fun in neon.
Right-wingers went batshit over this ad. Erin Brown of the right-leaning Media Research Center is quoted saying, “the ad blatant propaganda celebrating transgendered children.”
Lets pause and ponder this one moment… transgender child propaganda… ummm… Like what does that event mean!?
Brown goes on to write:
Not only is Beckett likely to change his favorite color as early as tomorrow, Jenna’s indulgence (or encouragement) could make life hard for the boy in the future. J.CREW, known for its tasteful and modest clothing, apparently does not mind exploiting Beckett behind the façade of liberal, transgendered identity politics. One has to wonder what young boys in pink nail polish has to do with selling women’s clothing.
One has to wonder what the hell Brown is even intimating?
Fox News’ Dr. Keith Ablow ran an opinion piece on the issue saying
This is a dramatic example of the way that our culture is being encouraged to abandon all trappings of gender identity—homogenizing males and females when the outcome of such “psychological sterilization” [my word choice] is not known.
Douchery say what? Like where do these guys get their p.h.d? The only thing psychologically sterile is Dr. Albow’s brain.
I’m actually surprised they only went after the nail polish because on the second page of the ad Jenna is quoted saying her Saturday consists of coffee, disco dancing, and art. SO GAY! And no one mentioned the chunky dykey glasses either…
