It looks like not only do the wingnuts know that trans people exist now, but they're learning how to make everything about trans people in the same way they've been making everything about gay people for four decades. Here's a certified Fox News doctor and a wingnut nonprofit worker talking about the ad on the right:
"This is a dramatic example of the way that our culture is being encouraged to abandon all trappings of gender identity," psychiatrist Dr. Keith Ablow wrote in a FoxNews.com Health column about the ad.
Media Research Center's Erin Brown agreed, calling the ad "blatant propaganda celebrating transgendered children."
"Not only is Beckett likely to change his favorite color as early as tomorrow, Jenna's indulgence (or encouragement) could make life hard for the boy in the future," Brown wrote in an opinion piece Friday. "J.CREW, known for its tasteful and modest clothing, apparently does not mind exploiting Beckett behind the facade of liberal, transgendered identity politics."
Ablow's column is a piece of work if you like crazy. He blames transsexualism on Prozac and YouTube.
I suppose attacking gay people is loosing its sting. But the only thing that ad is a "dramatic example" of is how some people are so uptight about gender rules that they wet their pants when a little kid paints himself the wrong color. img via towleroad
