Boston Macy's deep-sixes Pride mannequins

Fundamentalist whackjob Brian Camenker of MassResistance/Article 8 Alliance fixated on the pride-flag-as-man skirt in the above display, complained — and Macy’s caved and yanked it. Can you believe this? ((Boston Herald)

The Downtown Crossing store display featured two male mannequins – one wearing a gay pride rainbow flag around its waist – standing near a list of several planned Boston Pride events. The display was designed by Macy’s with the approval of the Boston Pride Committee.

But the store yanked the mannequins from the window after MassResistance, the conservative group formerly named Article 8 Alliance which has also campaigned against sex education and gay-themed books in public schools, complained the display was offensive.

They were male mannequins with enlarged breasts, and one was wearing a skirt,” said MassResistance president Brian Camenker, referring to the gay pride flag wrapped around one figure, cinched with a white belt. “It was really disgusting.”

Please. The Macy’s spokesbot said that the mannequins were removed “to strike a balance.”
