My letter to Macys sent to over a dozen key corporate people. The store pulled the mannequins when wingnuts complained that they were gay and offensive. See details and comments at Towleroad (http://towleroad.typepad.com/towleroad/2006/06/macys_removes_g.html).
I am appalled and disappointed to see that Macys feels
that it is important to kowtow to religious bigots and
hate mongers. (Macys removes gay mannequins from
Boston Pride window display.) I don’t understand why
Macys believes that giving in to gay bashers is a
benefit to the community.
Would you honor the requests of community wackos that
attacked and question the legitimacy of
African-Americans, Asians, or Hispanics? Would you do
the same for writers making anti-Semitic or racist
Will you next be removing Black mannequins? Mannequins
with foreign undocumented features? Single unwed women
mannequins with mannequin children?
I expect a higher standard of Macys than pandering to
the cowardly demands of small minded people.
