One Million Moms' newest campaign is highlighting Urban Outfitters, whose April catalog features two presumably lesbian women awkwardly kissing.

One Million Moms, a conservative values offshoot of the American Family Association, is boycotting Urban Outfitters for the lewd photo, which they claim is "geared toward teenagers."

It seems the attack on our culture by homosexual activists will never end and only will get worse.

Of course it won’t end.

Why would it end? They are on offense and no one is going to try and stop them.

No it won’t end.

We are well on the road to normalizing homosexuality, and this kind of thing is just one part of it.

If anybody says anything, then the gay activists will shift into high gear, call anyone who dares say anything homophobic, and be supported by their useful idiots in the MSM.

To the liberals, there is nothing objectionable, or questionable, about this sort of ad campaign.

It doesn’t surprise me. The leftards pretty much can do whatever they want as they have punished anyone who talks back against the fudgepackers and their perverted crap over the years. If Andrew Dice Clay was around today, he would be unemployed and blacklisted.

My 13 year old niece would go to Target, try them on, write the item number and order online through my brother’s cc. I discovered through her that it’s cheaper online with the very same item you find in store. Kids nowadays..

I used to like Urban Outfitters because they sold shirts with old movies/tv shows/video game/comic book characters on them.

I liked them because I am a nerd, but then I realized everyone else was buying them ironically!!!

I had a discussion about homosexuals with a young person recently. She was urging that I needed to be more tolerant.
I replied that I am tolerant—that what they want is acceptance & approval, and the best I can do is tolerance.
I don’t have to have this stuff in my home.

I just saw the ad. They may be kissing but they don't look like any lesbians I've ever seen.

I would not use the word “normalize”. I think it will only lead to the next moral barrier to break down and the next and the next.

Hubby and I were watching bits and pieces of ‘Along Came Polly’ and I had to rewind when I saw something that made my jaw drop. Or rather heard. One guy said, “For Christ sake” but ‘Christ’ was bleeped out.

Not long afterwards, someone said ‘bitc#’ but that word was left in.

What is the world is going on when profanity is acceptable but saying ‘Christ is considered so offensive that it needs to be censored.

And reading this article, it is just disgusting that JCP said, when threatened with a boycott for choosing Ellen Degenerate, that they shared the same values as Ellen. Exactly what values? Is it tolerance? Or is that just for gays- we have to tolerate their lifestyle but they can spit on Christian values?

When even someone like actress Amber Heard is an open lesbian, then I’m not sure there’s a “look” anymore.

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1720028/

I would say the left and the culture at large has been wildly successful in making sure that any female born since the mid-1980s who would possibly ever engage in homosexual activity DOES do so. Outside of religious doctrine, there is absolutely no social discouragement to the behavior and there is plenty of encouragement. Where there is discouragement is for anyone saying the behavior should not be done.

I think I saw one poll a couple years ago that suggested about 15% of women were homosexual or bisexual, or perhaps had engaged in the behavior at least once, and this had gone way up compared to a poll a couple decades prior for the same question which was around 5%. That sample might have been limited to a younger age group, can’t remember. Such a big rise in a matter of years lends credence to the fact that social factors have a big influence on the behavior, not just genetics.

To see how insanely skewed the media has made the public’s perception of the prevalence of homosexuality, a recent Gallup poll says American adults think 25% of the population is gay, up from 21-22% about 10 years ago. But the Gallup survey cites a recent study by a guy who estimates only 3.5% of the population is non-heterosexual. I’d definitely say it’s closer to that number. Do people really think 1 out of every 4 people they’ve ever met is gay? I don’t even think 25% of the people as shown in Hollywood TV and movies are gay. But people obviously find it very hard to estimate a single digit percentage, which always sounds so small, compared to the huge, unwarranted media attention given to “gay issues.”

I read somewhere that there were two types of lesbians: dykes and fems. Fems do not look butch, they look like the actress in your link.

If they showed a baggy Elena Kagan putting a lip-lock on Janet “Moose” Reno, it wouldn’t be cutting-edge cool.
It’s like the single-mother myth Hollywood pushes: how `courageous’ they are—a standing O when introduced on daytime TV shows dealing with their dysfunctional lives, but they’re independent, free and single like the movie actresses.
In Muncie, Indiana a single mother is likely working 12 hour shifts at Target, paying more for transportation and daycare than she can afford and her kid(s) are growing up feral because she’s too tired to give a s*** when she comes home in the evening and collapses on the couch.
Old lesbians don’t die. They just fade away, like tragic old male queens, as bitter old cat ladies, winding up on “Hoarders” drawing SS disability for, say, fibromyalgia, because they’re miserable after having chosen to be independent, free and single—like movie actresses, but winding up broke, reading their copies of Urban Outfitters, alone, and not a bit like the photographs.
OK, rant over. I just hate seeing the MSM jobbing the simpleminded. I’m going to walk the dog, get some fresh air.

I don't think "Christ" is considered so offensive that it needs to be censored; quite the opposite, I think "for Christ's sake" is considered to be taking Christ's name in vain, and is censored for that reason.

True story. For one of my sons’ birthdays, I got him an American Eagle sweatshirt, red. We always have a present next to their bed in the morning on their birthday. Well, he cried when he opened it! It was “too preppy” and he didn’t want to hurt my feelings by telling me that.

I just laughed and said I would keep it for myself and went and got him a plain WalMart one.

Of course it will never end. The left is relentless. This is a problem conservatives still haven't come to terms with. Too many conservative people get fired up about something, go to the polls, win an election, and then go back to their business assuming they've won the war. That is the wrong approach. They won a small battle in a bigger war. Conservatives need to stay on the offense ALL of the time. We can't let up at all, just like "progressives" will never stop pushing their sick agenda. Unfortunately the left has an advantage over us on this - these people literally grow up wanting to change the world and push their agenda at all times. Conservative people tend to want to accomplish real things, run businesses, raise families, etc. It is simply time we on the conservative side understand that politics can't be pushed aside at any time. We must always fight the left, because the left will never stop.

That is something to think about. But, personally, I am hard pressed to believe that anyone in Hollywood would take into account what a Christian considers to be offensive.

These are the people who release violent slasher films on Christmas Day, after all.

“I think “for Christ’s sake” is considered to be taking Christ’s name in vain”

I read an essay which held that taking the Lord’s Name in vain really meant claiming to do things in His name or believe things in His name when one is actually without faith or those things are contrary to what God has told us.

I’m not advocating using any Holy Name as an expletive, which certainly shows no reverence or love. Just saying.

Never purchased from them before. Doubt I will in the future.

I have a friend who cruises some goodwill stores in the rich part of town near the beach...whenever she does she bring me a sack of short pants and T’s in my size (I live on a boat, that’s all I wear), all look brand new.

Other than shoes and socks, I don’t think I’ve bought a single item of clothing the last two or three years.
