Jungs mit Nagellack

Der Genosse, dem dieser Post gewidmet ist, dürfte wissen, dass das für ihn gepostet wurde :D

A recent J. Crew promotional email showed a picture of the company’s president and creative director Jenna Lyons laughing with her 5-year-old son, Beckett. A bottle of Essie nail polish is juxtaposed with their photo. The caption of this spread reads, “Lucky for me I ended up with a boy whose favorite color is pink. Toenail painting is so much more fun in neon.” For most, this image, shown at left, depicts a loving mother and her son sharing a fun and sweet moment together, but some social conservatives have labeled the image as “blatant propaganda celebrating transgendered children.” This statement comes from an article written by Erin R. Brown for the website of the Culture and Media Institute, whose mission is to “prove – through sound scientific research – that liberal bias in the media does exist and undermines American values.” The article begins, “J. Crew, a popular preppy woman’s clothing brand and favorite affordable line of first lady Michelle Obama, is targeting a new demographic – mothers of gender-confused young boys.” Brown goes on to suggest that Beckett has been somehow exploited by people pushing “liberal, transgendered identity politics.” Psychiatrist and Fox News contributor Keith Ablow also wrote an article on the topic. He went even further than Brown, calling the image “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’ is not known.”
