If it weren’t for the neon pink toenail polish on a little boy’s toes, nobody would have taken much notice to the recent J. Crew advertisement that depicts head creative director Jenna Lyon and her son hanging out on a lazy Saturday.
The feminine-hued polish paired with the caption, “Lucky for me, I ended up with a boy whose favorite color is pink,” has stirred up a controversial frenzy that has some people wondering if the photo is an endorsement of transgendered, gender-neutral or gay children.
Since the story blew up, J. Crew hasn’t commented, saying they don’t want to add fuel to what they believe is a non-story.
What do you think? Are people getting upset over nothing, or is there reason to be concerned? See the ad in the video below and judge for yourself.
