Milwaukee Magazine's gay marriage cover must be hidden. Or not.

http://www.jsonline.com/news/milwaukee/sendiks-need-not-block-milwaukee-magazine-cover-showing-gay-brides-b99224771z1-250275611.html




I get that Sendik's Fine Foods wants to keep its customers happy and sell lots of groceries, but did it really need to block a tame Milwaukee Magazine cover showing two brides getting married? One shopper thinks so. And it took just that one complaint to cause the Brookfield store owners to put a black board over the magazine in racks near its checkout lanes. Only part of the magazine name was left showing.

Call it censorship or call it customer service, but the word got out in the news and on social media this week and pretty soon the store's phones and email lit up. And it was not people wanting to know if corned beef brisket is on sale. "It exploded," said store manager Rick. "I prefer not to give you my last name because I don't want all that hate mail coming to me."

...

In TV news interviews I've seen, Milwaukee Magazine staff look like they're enjoying this free advertising, and I realize I'm giving them more here today. If they're smart, editors will be putting a large marijuana leaf on next month's cover.

...

The store told the magazine that several customers complained, though manager Rick told me it was just one. Chandler said he, too, has received phone calls for and against the cover.



As always with the Urinal/Sentinel website, it's the reader comments where the real fun, er, hate, begins.

I don't care if gays get married or conduct their lives like straight people do, behind closed doors. Do we need to promote the lifestyle as "normal"? Maybe not. Should Gays be allowed to adopt children? I don't think so. The Bible is pretty clear about Homosexuality. But with all the atheist's out there now, this is OK. The new flavor of the week cause. Another example of the breakdown of morality in this country being embraced by the liberal left. We are going down fast!


I (and many others) totally agree with the convictions of the original customer complaint. And if I were the manager of Sendik's, I would have dropped carrying Milwaukee Magazine altogether!


The perverts are taking over the world. oops...I meant the liberals!


But that last one did have a great reply posted ...

Google "wide stance."

1. "We are going down fast!"

That's interesting terminology.

3. The Bible is also pretty clear about grooming and eating habits.

And yet, they go unheeded. Shame, shame.

4. I hate how they are being objectified

In real life how often do you see women dressed and/or posed like that?

The only reason they have women on the cover is to use them to sell magazines.

I bet the men just sit at home and whack off to that cover because they can't see women as anything other than sex toys to dress up in pretty gowns. Etc and so on.

There....am I doing it right?

9. Speaking as a man if I wanted to jack off to a

magazine cover there are a lot more stimulating ones out there.
But I must say you have a vivid imagination. You see men moving the black board covering the magazine to see the cover and then buy it to go home to jack off to.
You should try your hand at porn novels. You'd be pretty good I think.

7. The photographer should have gone for that little bit extra

and made one of the women black...Folks would have gone even crazier...
