So I was doing a little underwear shopping today for the big Valentine’s Day (everyone needs nice wrapping for their package, right?). Well I asked the store manager if they had any Aussiebum undies, and she gave me an answer that sort of disturbed me. She said, â€œOh no, we aren’t allowed to carry Aussiebum, they don’t allow gay stores to carry their clothing.â€ I was a bit startledâ€¦ I replied, â€œare you kidding me??! Well then they need to change their marketing campaigns because they sure as shit want our money."
So, it got me thinking whether this was just some isolated incident with this particular store, who by-the-way happened to carry everything else, or whether this was in-fact an official Aussiebum no-gay retail policy? It seems like it actually could be true because it’s pretty well known that Aussiebum underwear is very hard to find in retail storesâ€¦ at least the ones I frequent.
If anyone has the real scoop on this, please share! It absolutely annoys the shit out of me when anti-gay companies have pro-gay marketing campaignsâ€¦ but I don’t want to jump to conclusions.
Happy Valentine’s Day! xoxo
