Conservatives are up in arms over a new J. Crew ad that shows creative director Jenna Lyons giving her son, Beckett, a bright pink pedicure.

A caption below the ad reads: "Lucky for me I ended up with a boy whose favorite color is pink. Toenail painting is way more fun in neon."

This fun ad has pissed off some psychologist named Keith Ablow, who writes:

I wonder what Jenna would think if her son wanted to celebrate his masculinity with a little playacting as a cowboy, with a gun? Would that bring the same smile of joy and pure love that we see on her face in the J. Crew advertisement? Or would that be where she might draw the line?

And Erin Brown from the Media Research Institute opines:

Not only is Beckett likely to change his favorite color as early as tomorrow, Jenna's indulgence (or encouragement) could make life hard for the boy in the future. J.CREW, known for its tasteful and modest clothing, apparently does not mind exploiting Beckett behind the facade of liberal, transgendered identity politics.”

Gasp! This little boy is being led down a destructive path of evil! I'm sure Jenna, whose entire arsenal of parenting skills and stance on gender politics we can totally glimpse from this one ad, has taken away all of Beckett's toys and replaced them with Cover Girl products, which is totally a prereq for transgenderhood.
