I'm just sick of these people who think that the LGBT movement is just a chance to make money:
LEVI'S is getting in the spirit of the season by dressing its storefront mannequins in white. In Levi's-owned stores in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and San Francisco, that means more than just marking the passing of Memorial Day, the traditional date to begin wearing white: in 20 stores, the mannequins' white Levi's jeans and shirts are adorned with White Knots, a symbol of solidarity with the same-sex marriage movement.
Solidarity? Put those white knots in your stores in Orange County, Salt Lake City, and Ft. Wayne, and then we'll talk solidarity, Levi's. In LA, SF, NYC, and Chicago, where there's no risk at all to supporting same-sex marriage, it's just an advertising campaign that co-opts the LGBT movement to sell jeans.
I'm sure that there are some gays in those cities, though, who are ejaculating over themselves because of Levi's "solidarity." Hey, kids, you know they're just using your frustration and pain to sell you junk, right?
If this works out well for Levi's, maybe Martha Stewart can put out Limited Edition AIDS Quilt themed throw rugs and curtains. Better yet, McDonald's can put Gwen Araujo, Matthew Shepard, and Larry King's faces on fries containers to show their solidarity with hate crimes victims.
Only in cities that are already OK with the gay, of course. They wouldn't want to piss off their Real American clientele, now would they?
