Grocery Store Shields "young shoppers" from Elton John US Weekly Cover

Yesterday, a woman in AR tweeted a picture from her local grocery store. In the picture (here) the store had put a privacy shield over this week’s edition of celebrity magazine US Weekly. The store was hiding the cover which featured singer Elton John, his husband and their new baby from their “young shoppers". First of all, hooray for observant allies! It’s nice to know that there are people all over this country working to counter the false and harmful message this kind of privacy shield sends. The store is working so hard to protect their “young shoppers” that they are forgetting about the very message of hate and shame that this action sends to those very same shoppers. In a time where LGBT youth are struggling with bullying and harassment in many of our nation’s schools actions like this embolden their harassers and push them further into the closet.
