Skip to comments.In your face: Macy's Department Store in Boston has prominent display window for "Gay Pride Week"
Posted on 06/06/2006 8:07:05 PM PDT by Coleus
Main door of Macy's Department Store in downtown Boston. Note the display
window at bottom left.
View of the display window from the street, clearly and blatantly celebrating
"gay pride week" with two homosexual men.
Very bizarre. One mannequin is wearing what looks like some
of rainbow skirt. And when was the last time you saw male store
mannequins with breasts like those? What's that all about?
Call as many of these numbers below as you have time for. Leave a message if you can''t get through, but keep trying until you get to a person. And continue calling every day until you know this is taken down. (There are also email addresses below.)
Your message to Macy's is simple: Take this display down immediately.
Don't put up with any double-talk, or excuses. Macy's seems to think they can offend you with impunity. They may tell you they'll write you a letter about this. Tell them you're not interested in a letter -- or any "explanations" of their position -- just take this down immediately. And if you're in downtown Boston we encourage you to personally visit the Macy's Boston office, which is in the lower level (just below street level) in the store, just behind the Juniors Department.
Even if you don't live in Massachusetts this is important.

(From Bay Windows homosexual newspaper, 2004) Here's a photo from the Boston Pride
Parade of (we're not kidding) women who have had their breasts surgically removed, and
are marching as bare-chested "men." This is what Macy's is celebrating!
Macy's owns Foley's.
My Mom can't stand Macy's. But it's because they bought out and ruined Filenes, according to her.
"There are only two things that come out of Boston ..."
As mhking is famous for saying, "just damn."
What do you expect? Only gay people and women shop at Macy's anyhow. No real man would be caught dead in the place.
This is not acceptable in the America born of Washington, Jefferson, and Madison.
"Macy's? NOT! You bitches know I buy all my clothes at Kronk's Codpiece and Leather Cuffs Salon."
Massachusetts. No surprise here. Waiting to see if they will do this at the Macys at Newport Center in JC.
I have long ago stopped shopping at Macy's. They play too many pricing games. I'd rather spend my money at Lord & Taylor or similar stores if I can't get what I need at a discounter.
So, am I to assume you'll continue shopping at Macy's then?
I've never been in a Macy's, doubt I ever will. But if advertising to homosexuals in Boston scandalizes some folks, then they seriously need to get over it.
A few thousand envelopes containing cut up Macy's credit cards might do the trick.
I assure you Gay men probably spend about 100 times more shopping for clothes than the tiny population of people sufficiently offended by this (especially in the areas Macy has stores, and especially in Boston) so I doubt Macy's could care less about the reaction of anyone else.
Well, you're certainly free to avoid shopping at Macy's. But the right not to be grossed out by legal commerce sounds an awful lot like the right of minorities to not be offended, ie, not a right at all.
Both guys? Who's gonna be left to picket the Da Vinci Code?
BTW-The Man who OWNS IKEA is one of the top 10 richest persons on earth.
Never been to Des Moines, but we have one in Greenville, SC.
So... the women are removing their breasts while the men get implants? I had to change the channel the other day when a plastic surgeon was going to give implants to a man the other day. Super disgusting. Aren't the homosexuals always taking pride in 'who they are'? They don't seem to be happy or like themselves very much..
I feel like i'm in the twilight zone.
Macy's is owned by Federated Department Stores. They own quite a few stores under different names.
My roommate one year at MIT was a real right-to-life fanatic; part of one of the fringy groups bordering on vandalism, etc. Real weird guy otherwise too.
I'd suggest that MIT students probably have better uses of their time then this.
The more gays are "in the face" with their lifestyle, the more convinced I become that its an insecurity issue for them. In their heart of hearts,they know it is abnormal behaviour and thus the need for acceptance. Why else is it so important to them for others to say "its ok" if not to feel better about it themselves?
They are in Honolulu too. I haven't been by one in a while though. I may have to make a trip to the mall just to see if this crap is being put on display there.
Macy's is just a made-in-china department store.
Macy's online wedding registry is huge and seems to the most common one chosen by couples. Many people shop there for engagement and wedding gifts even if they don't ever set foot in Macy's. Male/female engaged couples need to learn about this, so they can choose to set up their registries elsewhere. Those of us that regularly buy from the registry should avoid it, regardless of whether a couple is registered there. There's no law that you have to buy your gift from their registry. We need to tell Macy's wedding registry that we will not longer buy from them and why.
You're making too much sense here.
Dude, homosexuals have a high disposable income. If businesses want to cater to them, who cares? I'm not in favor of homosexuals getting preferential treatment through government mandates though. But if Ford advertises in a gay publication the world comes to an end.
In case there is a Macy's in T.
You should visit Des Moines. The Iowa state fair is the best in the country. Plus Des Moines is a city that's being slept on. It's a big city without the big city problems. Sort of like Minneapolis.
Please FReepmail me if you want on or off my miscellaneous ping list.
It's posts like this that show where we differ so drastically.
First, who cares what a urban department store does.
Second, since the very first indoor mall was opened in London, the mall culture has been heavily influenced by gays lesbians trannies etc.
Third, you are talking about the fashion world, if you don't want to promote gay commerce, go wear homespun canvas britches.
Fourth, It's quite obvious that the display designer took a "misses" manequin torso and added all men's body parts. funny in a juvenile way and nothing original.
Fifth, Private commerce. Macy's puts displas up like that, in front of one of the "man refuges" where wives/gf's/moms/daughters drop off their men to go shopping, and Macy's will lose out in the long term. Each article in that display is now "gay", like pink popped collar polo shirts. All going to liquidators at the end of season.
Now, I'd say having to explain to a child why the daddy mannequin has boobs can be uncomfortable, the world won't revolve around protecting the parent's right to not be offended by that display.
I'm confused, EDUCATED and WEALTHY... this sounds like a statement from someone who would post on DU. Just like things I hear from the left..."We know we are right because WE are enlightened and educated"...blah, blah, blah. To be smart and have worked hard in your life to become "wealthy" doesn't mean you have to lose your convictions and embrace the homosexual agenda, that is ravishing our kids today.
My old friend you delve into the jar of debate wherein you scoop and slather all about the dressing on the meat with your casual and careless use of the word homophobes in the same and certain sense of the bread on which it rests the term puritan and its ancient suspicion; the simple fact remains, a sandwich needs to be partaken neatly and whole.
A man's measure, as it were?
We have no right not to be wronged while it is wrong to deny a right, am I wrong?
Just an excuse to find someone to go to bed with. Case Closed.
Bert and Ernie wrapped in a sham still only make up one pillow!
