That’s why we were pleasantly surprised when we saw the new Urban Outfitters catalog out this week. In it, there’s a picture of two girls standing alone in a room kissing. Two girls! Kissing! It’s caused quite an outrage with radical conservative groups, including the one who tried to get JC Penney to fire openly gay Ellen DeGeneres from their ad campaign–those ladies do NOT like this Urban Outfitters lesbian kiss–but we find it straight-up refreshing. No, it doesn’t exactly forgive other uncool things Urban Outfitters has done in the past, but it does give us hope that maybe (just maybe) they’re rethinking things and realizing that two people loving each other–regardless of what gender they happen to be–is a cool thing and doesn’t hurt anybody.
Fingers crossed that this is just the first in a line of many, many more open-minded moves from Urban Outfitters. Who knows–maybe they’ll change their ways so much that one day we’ll even want to start shopping there again!
What’s your take on the Urban Outfitters lesbian kiss? Do you think it’s no big deal? Do you shop there even though they’ve done some pretty dodgy stuff in the past? Let us know everything in the comments!
