Macy's teams with HRC for Gay Pride Month
Examiner.com ^ | June 1, 2012 | Hank Plante

Posted on 06/05/2012 12:45:30 PM PDT by kevcol

June is Gay Pride Month all across America, and retailer Macy’s is celebrating the month by featuring merchandise in its stores from the Human Rights Campaign.

The HRC is the largest LGBT civil rights organization in the country, and Macy’s will sell HRC merchandise during June in its stores in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Boston, Columbus and St. Louis. The merchandise includes “Vote Equality” t-shirts and other items with the HRC’s famous blue-and-gold “equal sign” logo.

100% of the proceeds from sales will go to HRC’s fight for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender equality

.
.
He added, “During Pride Month and throughout the year, we will remain committed to supporting the LGBT community through a variety of initiatives including our long-standing partnership with the Human Rights Campaign.”

Geeez. I read the headline and thought Hillary was going to come out of the closet to “celebrate” homosexual month.

“Vote Equality”? In MA? We weren’t allowed to. I wonder why?

For my list as well.

Now Target, JCP & Macy.

Hoping I won’t have to boycott forever, I really like all of those stores.

I’ve been boycotting Macy’s since they fired a Christian saleswoman for prevent a male from using the women’s dressing room. Interestingly enough, the saleswoman was black so I’m sure she doesn’t like the whole “gay is the new black” baloney.

According to “Examiner”?

It might be true, but “Examiner” ain’t the source.

“News” indeed.

Oddly enough, when I read the headline, I thought that they were talking about Hillary Rodham Clinton. Then I read the body of the story.

Are there any clothing stores or discount stores committed to an American conservative ideal and the values that go along with that? And is there a list?

I’ve stopped shopping at Wall-mart, Target, Penny’s(which I used to purchase my kids school clothes there), now Macy’s. I’ve also stopped purchasing coke and pepsi.

Macys and Target, two stores I shopped at regularly, are now both off my list.

It's a pay-per-hit blog. It can be reliable or not.

Any homeless smacktard with access to a library can be an "Examiner".

Take it with a gain of salt and know that all the info was stolen from somewhere else.

It's actually a print newspaper in my area with a web counterpart. Its also the most conservative print newspaper in my area! maybe not in all areas, but it is here in VA.

Perhaps you are confusing the Washington Examiner with the
Examiner blog site. They want you to do that. They are not
the same.

If you need a month to remind you to be proud of something, you ain’t.

LOL! Now, you must know that we are not allowed to talk about what "gays" actually do to each other. They are just delightful human beings with a great sense of style. The triple-digit number of partners, the anal sex, the repetitive STD's, AIDs, the AIDS parties where there is one AIDs person and no one knows who he is and everyone has sex so that they have a chance to get AIDs because unless you have AIDs you are not "authentic", etc. ad nauseum (and I mean nauseum).

You never hear about ribbon bullies when there is discussion of “bullying” in schools and offices.

Too unthinkable to refuse to wear the AIDS ribbon.

You realize your tax dollars will go to bail out all of these companies that fall on the Leftist side of the culture war. It’s for your own good.

It might be worth giving them a month if they'd STFU the other eleven, but they won't.

Macy’s has been in the gay parade big time for a long time.

They permit their bathrooms to be advertised as gay sex spots.

My teen son was sexually harassed by a gay male sales clerk there. When my son asked for the changing room the perv told him to take it clothes off right there. I was with my son but the jerk did not realize it because I was not right beside the kid. Boy did he find out!

Never went there again!

I tried to find out the old fashioned way (by clicking your profile) but it doesn’t say where you live.

I’m just curious where that Macy’s store was, the one where the incident occurred.

I’ve been really upset with them for some time now, since they took another of my childhood favorites and threw in in the sh!tter. Referring of course to Marshall Field’s in Downtown Chicago.

(Just goes along with the rest of that once great city that Hizzoner the Imperious Illiterate Daley reduced to Frisco on the Lake.)

Currently I live in Texas. I lived in the Boston area when my son was approached by the Macy’s perv.

Before I contacted management about the perv who bothered my son, I did a search on Macy’s and found the advertising for gay sex in their bathrooms in gay online publications. It’s quite the meeting place. I found a whole lot more, too. I would not permit children - especially boys - anywhere near the place.

I just called Macy’s and cancelled my credit card with them. When they asked why I told them Macy’s support of the homosexual agenda was in conflict with my Christian beliefs.
