One Million Shrews Notices GAP Ad

I called this two weeks ago, but finally One Million Shrews have noticed that GAP ad. In Los Angeles, CA, GAP has a billboard located downtown that reads: “GAP- BE BRIGHT- BE ONE” with two homosexual men pressed together under a shared t-shirt. They are hugging each other and facing the camera cheek-to-cheek. “BE ONE” is in large letters which …

Christianists Vs. Old Navy

“Old Navy is promoting a lifestyle that is in complete rebellion against God. Rather than just focusing on giving good products to their customers, they want to use their products now to advocate for a very controversial topic, much less a very immoral and very deadly topic.

Gap Employees – It Gets Better

Dan Savage comments on the “second-wave” of It Gets Better videos such as this and today’s clip from Canada. Most of the videos that went up in the first few weeks were—in addition to being moving and heartfelt—very quickly made, mostly with webcams, and the sound quality was sometimes poor.

Gay Pagan Witches Will Abort Your Kids!

The Maine Family Policy Council has picked up the American Family Association’s “witchcraft” charge against Gap’s holiday commercial. Aaaand somehow it all becomes about abortion and euthanasia. Oh! And don’t forget the witchcraft of gay marriage! Solstice is a holiday celebrated by “pagans,” and paganism is repackaged witchcraft, and witchcraft slowly darkens, withers, and kills the human soul. Modern day …

AFA: Gap Stores Support Witchcraft!!!

One day after I wondered if Gap’s new holiday ad wasn’t a giant “fuck you” to the American Family Association’s boycott claim that the company was “anti-Christmas,” the AFA has sent out an “action alert” describing the commercial as supporting witchcraft.

Is This GAP’s “Fuck You” To The American Family Association?

After being targeted with a boycott by the American Family Association as an anti-Christian retailer, GAP began airing a commercial that does use the word “Christmas.” But it also mentions Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and the pagan-y Winter Solstice. It even says you should celebrate however “you wannukah.” MEOW. The ad’s been running for a least a week and popped up on …

Silverman Jingle: Hoax?

The painfully unfunny Sarah Silverman is being credited as the author of AIDS-mocking ad jingle supposedly discarded from an upcoming World AIDS Day campaign by Gap’s Product RED department.
