Corduroy Skirts are a Sin!

Chris Pesto, a student from Syracuse, NY, made this funny poster in retaliation to those homophobic bible-thumper protesters from the Westboro Baptist Church. This photo brought a smile to my face.

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.

As I drew interest to what was going on with myself and the woman with the hateful sign, I started to draw a crowd that stood with me in support. Before I knew it I had 100+ people holding signs for gay rights asking people to honk their horns to support. I was interviewed by a news station, and more than 5 student organization papers, and the post standard of Syracuse.

Good on you honey for using fashion to make difference in this world. Thank you for the laughs.

  1. This is absolutely amazing, thanks for posting and thank you Chris for having courage to do this, you’re brilliant.
    You really can tell so much about a persons personality by their wardrobe…as is shown by this one…if I were her I would want to dig a very deep hole and hide in it forever.
    x Noa

  2. poor woman, I truly feel bad for her. Your friend and his acolytes are jerks. You don’t bit the dog that bited you.

  3. lol, this is too funny! but it’s not funny that people are so homophobic and religiously blinded in a country that attacks other countries because their belief is too extreme.

  4. Believing something is wrong doesnt automatically make you afraid of it. AKA think homosexuality is wrong doesn’t make you afraid of it.
