After Lesbian Kiss Pic, You Should "Trash Your Teen's New Urban Outfitters Catalog Today"? Screw That. I'd Be Looking Forward to the Next Edition!
The young models smoochin' above (and below) are from Urban Outfitters' new April catalog, and there's no indication whatsoever that either of the ladies is underage. So what's the big damn deal? But don't trying telling that to right-winger group "One Million Moms"!
The social conservative group is going after Urban Outfitters with all of its right-wing gusto (link at bottom), urging parents across the country to "trash your teen's new Urban Outfitters catalog today!"
The quasi-boycott movement (amazing how much right-wingers and leftist 20 percenters alike seem to love business boycotts) is also imploring people nationwide to flood Urban Outfitters with angry e-mail complaints.
This deranged right-winger outfit OMM (which previously tried to boycott JCPenney for using a lesbian as a spokesman -- can't have that!) is also asking e-mailers to threaten a boycott of Urban Outfitters and is demanding that Urban Outfitters "apologize."
OMM complains that the catalog targets teens and therefore shouldn't use any girlie smoocheroo pics. Hey, if you have a problem with homosexuality and/or with your teen being exposed to the fact that homosexuals kiss each other, that's your prerogative: You're free to prevent your teen from taking or keeping the catalog. But why would you feel the compelling need to impose that outcome and viewpoint on every other parent out there through a boycott?
It's a parent's job to filter the images and speech to which his/her kids are exposed. So do your job, and worry about your own damn kids. And let other parents worry about theirs. Believe it or not, right-wingers and leftists: You really DON'T know what's best for everyone else's kids.
