OneMillionMoms claims to "stand against the immorality, violence, vulgarity and profanity the entertainment media is throwing at your children" and has a reputation for anti-gay action. Previous campaigns include denouncing Toys R Us for stocking the gay marriage Archie comic book and attempting to get talk show host Ellen Degeneres removed as a spokesperson for JCPenney stores simply because she is openly gay.

OMM are now advising parents to "send an email letter urging Urban Outfitters to discontinue this ad and immediately stop the circulation of the catalog with the two women kissing or you will make a conscious effort to shop elsewhere."

Well - you've seen the shot. What's your verdict?
