Boycott Urban Outfitters!!!

The president of Urban Outfitters gives money to the Republican Party and right-wing senator Rick Santorum. Santorum is one of the most conservative members of the entire US Senate. He has made harsh remarks towards homosexuals. So, by buying from Urban Outfitters you are giving $ to support homophobic causes.

Another reason not to support Urban Outfitters is because of the shirt they sold for a while that said, "Voting is for Old People"! The goal of the shirt is obviously to suppress the youth vote and disenfranchise young people.

All we ask is that you examine the facts and choose to not buy any products from any Urban Outfitters unitl they stop giving money to discrimination and spreading the wrong message. There are plenty of other great places to shop.

Join us in boycotting Urban Outfitters!

Re: Think Urban Outfitters is Gay Friendly? Think Again!

I agree completely. "Voting is for Old People"!

But obviously being that Urban outfitters supports one of the most invasive and annoying chumps in the senate they are using that truth ("Voting is for Old People"!) to disempower the youth because it is proven that the lower the vote turnout, the better the republicans do.

Lastly even though I agree with the quote ("Voting is for Old People"!), I personally take it my own way, accepting people's own individual perspectives on it and yet my own. Except when it is being used to decieve for alterior motives other than its literal/symbolic meaning which translated on long the planes - that voting is an old practice which must be repaired, reborn and/or replaced. Personally I dont take it as an attack towards elders either, only that "voting" is old and can only be related to by elders as if voting ever really worked profoundly.

Maybe I'm just too radical. Nah.

Anyways, good work on slowing down their biz for the day. I'll spread the word.
