Have you seen the latest Urban Outfitters catalog yet? Lots of graphic tees, housewares, dresses... Oh yeah, and a big ol' lesbian smooch right on page two.
At least, that's how One Million Moms, a coalition of mothers against negative influences from the media, views the photo. The image shows two young woman embracing each other in a full-on hand-on-face lip lock. And One Million Moms wants you to throw out that filthy, filthy catalog, per a strongly worded statement on the group's website:
WARNING! The April 2012 catalog from Urban Outfitters has begun arriving in home mailboxes the last couple of days. On page two of this catalog is a picture of two women kissing in a face holding embrace! The ad and catalog are clearly geared toward teenagers.Additionally, the Moms want you to write a letter to Urban Outfitters asking that they refrain from sending this type of offensive advertising into peoples homes or else.
When you call be sure to let them know why you are unsubscribing. Tell them you will also no longer shop at their stores if you hear this type of advertising continues.
And, quite frankly, they'd like an apology. Oh, and one last thing — If you see any other vile propaganda floating around, be sure to let The Moms know. And then they'll post something about that, too:
If you see a commercial or program which is offensive, email us the information. Many of you have done this, and it is very helpful.
