I know there have been many in the gay community and elsewhere that have been really down on Abercrombie phenomenon. Yes, much like the 70s "Clone" phenomenon, it does have the tendency to facilitate gay men abandoning their individual identity in favor of an unreachable ideal. That being said, A&F Quarterly was HOT.

In any event, here's a reason to stop by your nearest A&F and pick up some clone-wear:

From the website of Bob Jones University:

"Abercrombie & Fitch and its subsidiary Hollister have shown an unusual degree of antagonism to the name of Christ and an unusual display of wickedness in their promotions. In protest, we will not allow articles displaying their logos to be worn, carried, or displayed (even if covered or masked in some way)."

Just classic. To think I can "antagonize" the name of Christ just by throwing on a pair of cargo shorts... I don't even have to do anything so messy as artwork involving a crucifix and urine...

Thanks to The Raw Story for pointing this out.
