BREAKING NEWS: SOME BOYS LIKE PINK and THAT SCARES FOX NEWS!

[Tweeted earlier today by @FoxNews: "#JCrew ad shows designer painting son’s toenails pink. Does this cross the line? Check it out & let us know http://fxn.ws/i0K5wj #pinktoes."]

If you go to the link like I did, this is what you see:
[Image of a woman with her child in upper right, he has pink toenails.  The page is headlined: "SATURDAY with Jenna.  See how she and son Beckett go off duty in style."  In the lower right, a jar of pink toenail polish with this quote next to it, "Lucky for me, I ended up with a boy whose favorite color is pink.  Toenail painting is way more fun in neon."  In the lower left is Beckett with his awesome black glasses looking freaking adorable.]

I retweeted FoxNews, adding “OMFG. NOT PINK TOENAILS ON A BBBBOOOOYYYY!!!”

To which the very smart @statesidemenace responded, “I’d really like to know how the phrase “Does this cross the line?” qualifies as news and not pandering.”

And to which the always spot-on @lifeversiontwo said, “What line? The immovable gender line?”

Couldn’t have said it better myself.

[UPDATED: Now we know where Fox got this "news" from: Media Research Council's Latest Target: J. Crew.  I don't see pandering anywhere.]

    “blatant propaganda celebrating transgendered children” SCREEEEEECH. What the what? YES transgender children SHOULD be celebrated. I mean, ALL children should be celebrated. Duh.

    Gender politics…gets me going faster than reproductive rights politics.
