"You're all aware that nail polish comes off, right?" - Jon Stewart
I truly cannot believe the commotion over the J. Crew ad featuring Jenna Lyons (J. Crew's president and creative director) and her young son where *GASP* he has painted toenails. I don't usually get too opinionated on this blog, but this story has left me with such a sinking feeling in my gut. Are little boys really not allowed to play around anymore? This seems so innocent and playful, to have it judged and picked apart by news sources just feels so wrong. I don't have children but I imagine that if my son wanted to play around with girly things, who would I be to deny him that if it makes him happy?
What do you think about this story? Did you find the idea of a boy with painted nails offensive?
