Corduroy Skirts Are A Sin!
The photo alone is funny, but here’s the background story. Chris Pesto (the guy holding the “cord skirts are a sin” sign) is a student at Syracuse University and noticed two people holding “Homosexuality Is A Sin” signs on campus. Though he supports their right to express their, uh, opinion, Pesto — who is gay — wanted to express his as well. He wrote on his Facebook page:
“This woman was wearing a ankle-length corduroy skirt, which, as we all know, is a fashion nono. So, in order to make her feel uncomfortable, I stood next to her and held a sign that said Corduroy skirts are a sin! I don’t think I have ever drawn so much attention in my life. SO many people asked to take a picture with me, I got laughs, high fives and there were the few that even cursed off the woman standing behind me.”
Pesto was joined by others also expressing their support of gay rights and he was even interviewed by the local news. No word on whether the hatemonger took his fashion advice and chucked her skirt in the trash. [The F Bomb]
