J Crew Ad

Do you see anything unsettling about this picture?

J. Crew Ad

It looks like J.Crew decided to come out with their own little “princess boy.”

The popular clothing company released this ad featuring Jenna Lyons, the chain’s president and creative director, and her son Beckett, who is five.

Lyons is pictured with a bottle of neon pink nail polish painting her son’s toenails under the headline, ”Saturday with Jenna… See how she and son Beckett go off duty in style.’

The ad also reads: ‘Lucky for me, I ended up with a boy whose favorite color is pink. Toenail painting is way more fun in neon.”

The ad was sent as an email advertisement last week, and it didn’t go over so well with some folks, including several psychiatrists who claim it “celebrates transgendered identity.”

Lyons response?

“Lots of kids, say seven and under, might ask their parents for something that would seem to be cross gender. I think most parents, especially in the privacy of their own home might think, what’s the big deal?”

Please discuss… Is this okay? Would you ever paint your son’s nails or toenails if he asked?

Are people making a big deal out of nothing or is this opening the door for more advertising that raises questions about children’s gender identity?
