A compendium of craft masquerading as art, art masquerading as craft, and craft extending its middle finger.

Where's Your Pride, Boston?


Ye gods. I'm sick to the tits of the current political climate, the culture war, and the freakin' midterm election. Cynical politicians are constantly rallying their toothless, yammering, busybody bases by shamelessly exploiting whatever polarizing issue is at hand. Americans never tire of it. Duuuuuuh. Macy's department store in Boston put the above display in its window, containing a couple of fellas hanging out, one of whom is wearing a... brace yourself.... RAINBOW SKIRT! Macy's removed the display after one of their customers complained to management. Boston activist group MassResistance put the screws to Macy's, who reinstated the display, sans mannequins. Jumpin' Jesus with a wiffleball bat. Can't we all shop in peace? You don't see me complaining about the sequined brocade Frosty the Snowman vests they roll out in the Holiday season.

LINK thanks, Lyndsy!
