Has Urban Outfitters gone too far?

One Million Moms is condemning Urban Outfitters for a new catalog ad that shows two girls kissing.

The anti-gay group is targeting Urban Outfitters after the clothing retailer displayed a photo of two girls kissing in their latest catalog.

“The April 2012 catalog from Urban Outfitters has begun arriving in home mailboxes the last couple of days,” the group writes on its website. “On page two of this catalog is a picture of two women kissing in a face holding embrace! The ad and catalog are clearly geared toward teenagers.” The alert concludes, “The content is offensive and inappropriate for a teen who is the company’s target customer.”

Earlier this year, One Million Moms, a division of the American Family Association, threatened a JCPenney boycott after the retail chain appointed DeGeneres as its spokesperson.

However, after DeGeneres received massive support from fans and even unlikely advocates including Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly, One Million Moms dropped its case and eventually decided to move on to other issues. Still, Monica Cole, director of the “pro-family advocacy” group, told OneNewsNow, “We have heard back from men and women — not just moms — saying they will no longer shop there at JC Penney, as long as Ellen DeGeneres is their spokesperson.”

What do you think – is the ad tastefully done – or over the line?
