NEW YORK (1010 WINS) A maternity shop in Park Slope is offering a 10 percent discount to its customersits lesbian customers.
Karen Paperno, of the maternity and breastfeeding boutique Boing Boing, said the sale is not a social commentary, but just a way to help her clientele, who she said is struggling.
LISTEN: 1010 WINS Steve Sandberg spoke with Paperno about the special sale
Women make 77 cents on the dollar still. When two women are leading a household, theyre not making as much money as a married couple, Paperno said. Theyre not making as much money as other couples do. They dont have as much discretionary or disposable income.
The neighborhood is changing, she said, and often times, the families with two women cannot afford to remain there.
They are sort of what made it a great neighborhood and now they cant afford to live here anymore, Paperno said. Last month, I wanted to bring back the discount for lesbian moms because thats what Park Slope sort of means to me.

What do they do? Tax the rich babies?
How do they determine who is a lesbian and who isn’t?
I can think of a few funny ways but I can’t post ‘em here.
Plan B? Galt’s Gulch?
Um! If my husband works and I am a stay at home mom, that’s one less income. Who makes less? Us or the lesbian couple?
Now if only businesses that catered to straight people had the same rights.
just spread your fingers and slam them on the table in front of her. Its the male equivalent of “mines bigger than yours”.
>said the sale is not a social commentary, but just a way to help her clientele, who she said is struggling.
Then why make a niche discount in the first place? Everyone is struggling, regardless of your lesbian defective sexuality..er, I mean, sex.
Do male lesbians count - or will the store discriminate?
Well that’s it!
If I ever get pregnant, I am not going to drive the 1750 miles from my home to Brooklyn to buy my maternity clothes!
Struggling my you know what. How much did she spend to get pregnant?
Wonder how they prove they are lesbos?
“How much did she spend to get pregnant?”
Turkey basters are about 5 bucks.
This is a cheap publicity trick, but it may cost her a lot should the government get involved.
Perhaps it would help if you were to call Boing Boing and tell them that you are boycotting their store and will not buy your maternity clothes from them.
The PC shop has to give the discounts and then the women magically become normal again after making their purchases and leaving.
Let's call it "Cash Register Dykes."
Oooops....was that politically incorrect?
You mean a 5,000 dollar one from the government.
