Here’s my favorite part of this Macy’s gay-mannequins-with-nipples contretemps.
It’s the outstanding investigative reporting of MassResistance, the anti-gay marriage group, to determine whether the gay mannequins are indeed different - anatomically speaking - than Macy’s non-gay mannequins.
“when was the last time,” asks their Web site, “you saw male store mannequins with breasts like those?”
Never, I had to concede, now that you mention it. Perhaps I’m not paying close enough attention?
macy’s celebrates gay pride in boston by mounting, then removing “most offensive part” of “boston pride” display window (two “gay” mannequins with pecs and nipples showing thru shirts, one wearing a rainbow flag-like beach towel) after an effective pressure campaign is quickly & successfully grandstanded by anti-gay group massResistance, formerly article 8. all sides are pissed at macy’s/federated.
