The group is urging people to throw away the catalogs, call the company to unsubscribe from its mailing list, and send letters to Urban expressing their disgust because of “a picture of two women kissing in a face holding embrace!”. Why? “The content is offensive and inappropriate for a teen who is the company’s target customer.”
Before you pick a side, know that Urban isn’t particularly LGBT-friendly, either. Don’t forget its transphobic greeting card, or CEO Richard Haynes‘s continued support of anti-gay legislation and political candidates. Maybe this is a step in the right direction for the retailer, or maybe it’s just a publicity ploy that could help boost less-than-stellar sales.
