"It was really disgusting." This from the group who had a man dress up as Margaret Marshall and burn the Massachusetts Constitution.
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."
Ya know, I had high hopes for Macy's when they had Harvey Fierstein dress up as Mrs. Claus for the Thanksgiving Day parade but this is ridiculous. (And who looks better?) MANNEQUINS!? I don't think they came to life like Kim Cattrall did in the movie and seduced someone did they? Come'on people, Article 8 is gasping for life here!
I think Macy's made a BIG mistake. I know I will not continue to shop there, there are plenty of other stores in Boston that will not bow to the demands of the extreme radical right. (Do they even shop there, I thought Walmart was their store of choice?) I wonder how the people in NYC will feel about Macy's after they hear about this blunder?
