What's wrong with this kiss?

Conservative group One Million Moms is making a huge fuss over this all-girl kiss in a new fashion catalogue.

Yes – this is the same busybody organisation that recently called for American department store chain JC Penney to drop Ellen DeGeneres as its spokesperson – simply because she’s gay.

Describing the photo, which appears in Urban Outfitters’ new catalogue being distributed around America, as “offensive and inappropriate,” One Million Moms – an offshoot of the American Family Association – has demanded the fashion brand be boycotted until an apology is given.

What do they have against lesbians? They appear to be worried about the delicate sensibilities of the catalogue’s younger readers: “Before your child has a chance to read the newest Urban Outfitters catalog call to unsubscribe from their mailing list and then throw it away,” they advise on their website. “When you call be sure to let them know why you are unsubscribing. Tell them you will also no longer shop at their stores if you hear this type of advertising continues.

“The content is offensive and inappropriate for a teen who is the company’s target customer.”

Urban Outfitters has not responded to One Million Moms’ weird reaction.

We think the photo’s cute and wouldn’t mind seeing more same-sex hookups in the name of fashion. What do you reckon?

So much for "unconditional love" from parents....maybe they'd understand if their child was lesbian or gay. Then again maybe parents like these are the types to disown their children. Disgraceful, they need to grow up and get over themselves.

Would I like to see more of this in catalogues? Hell yeah! :)

As for the so-called "Million Moms", wasn't there a study recently that showed most homophobia is directly linked to same-sex feelings? Those poor jealous closeted housewives.

Good on Urban Outfitters for not responding!
I pity all these mums... Surely they have no idea on how to create an environment of trust and dialogue, within which they could bring up their kids to be their best.

Oops. Lesbians. Teenagers making out. Yuck. Do teenage girls do things like that? Well they might now that Urban Outfitters is showing them that it%u2019s common place? Then again maybe some of Urban Outfitter%u2019s customers might be teenage lesbians enjoying being embraced. Still phewy. Right...?
