Thank J Crew for the ‘Pink Toenails’ Ad

By Karen Ocamb -

Wayne Besen from Truth Wins Out and are offering thanks to J. Crew clothing store for showing “enlightened leadership in the face of adversity:”
The clothing store J. Crew released an ad this week that featured the company’s president and creative director Jenna Lyons painting the toenails of her son Beckett. The text read: “Saturday with Jenna: Lucky for me, I ended up with a boy whose favorite color is pink. Toenail painting is way more fun in neon.”
Needless to say, the wingnuts went ballistic and attacked J. Crew for allegedly distorting gender roles – which presumably will turn kids gay or transgender. Erin Brown of the right-wing Media Research Center called the ad “blatant propaganda celebrating transgendered children.”
FOX commentator Dr. Keith Albow chimed with this “brilliant” nugget of advice:
“Yeah, well, it may be fun and games now, Jenna, but at least put some money aside for psychotherapy for the kid-and maybe a little for others who’ll be affected by your ‘innocent’ pleasure.”
They ask that you “please sign our petition today thanking J. Crew for the company’s willingness to publish this fine ad.”
Here’s an ABC report on the ad:
