Suit Company Loses 10,000 Followers After Posting Same-Sex Ads And We Have One Word For Them

Sometimes, you can go a couple days without being reminded about how completely regressive the world we live in actually is. And then, something like this happens. FML for the world on this one.

We have one for the people who unfollowed: adios!

According to Bored Panda, the Dutch menswear company SuitSupply recenelty released their new ad campaign featuring men kissing with captions like “Don’t just fit in” and “Find your perfect fit.” The campaign resulted in a loss of over 10,000 followers and some pretty angry man-dudes.

SuitSupply's founder and CEO, Fokke De Jong, responded to the crtisism in what we think was the best way possible:

“The attraction between people is an important part of fashion advertising,” he said. “A campaign featuring the attraction between men was long overdue and particularly relevant for our brand.”

Basically, he doesn't give a damn. And we couldn’t agree more. Yes, same sex couples kiss and hold each other. They shouldn’t have to be ashamed, and as it’s something that needs to be normalized, we’re happy that SuitSupply took such a progressive step forward.

We find it hilarious that the 10,000 men who unfollowed have such fragile masculinities that the sheer thought of a man kissing in another man while wearing the most masculine get-up was simply too much for their eyes to bear.

So we’ll reiterate: Bye!

Feel free to re-join us in 2018 when you can get your heads out of your asses. As for the rest of the world that cares to see the progressive campaign, check more of the photos below. All image credit goes to SuitSupply.

If you are disgusted by pictures like this, ask yourself: Would I be disgusted if this were a straight couple? If the answer is yes, the problem is the people who designed the photo shoot. If the answer is no, the problem is you.

No one will downvote you, pumpkin. We want the world to see your comment and how dumb you are.
And you don’t know the meaning the word of propaganda. The reason why nowadays the gay theme is more present is because - wait for it- there are gay people out there! And they want to feel included.

It is not a problem if I don't want to see that. I am all for equality and support the LGBT community but that doesn't mean I want my media to include men being intimate. I think that this has to do with my sexual identity being a straight male. If a gay guy said a man and a women making out was gross, nobody would batt an eye.

yes.... but maybe as a species humans were designed to reproduce by girl x boy relationship.... and as part of this our brain is literally wired to dislike seeing man on man. reason why girl on girl is more accepted is because guess what? guys having polygamy means more chances for Gene's to last. for girls? more providers. although guys are gonna have instincts to dislike that cause who knows the real father? hence why mankind once at a certain population decided monogamy was ideal. and now that we are reaching a point of having too many people well it is actual good to have people unable to reproduce. unfortunately at some point people are gonna want to waste time and money researching on how to do that but meh. (yes it's waste. plenty of children need foster homes and what not)

I disagree with you but respect your right to an opinion, and I respect that you were able to express it without being rude. I do hope though that maybe someday you could accept this or at least not let it bother you.

And here is my open, honest opinion : I pray, for the good of this world, and human evolution, that you are a minority, but unfortunately, my prayers are far from being answered.

This concerns them how? Looks like they are high end bespoke suit makers and they don't need to care about followers, the people that can afford to buy their suit will still buy them regardless. It's a status of wealth.

To say up front, I fully support homosexuality. What I don't understand is why people feel the need to make ads like this personal. Just because a company supports something-or uses it for advertising- doesn't mean you have to support it too. You can support a brand without having to support their views. Way too complicated to try to separate all that out, in my mind.

How many times have we seen companies use a man and a woman in an overtly sexual pose or suggestive theme in advertisement? Hundreds. No one blinks an eye. Two men doing the same thing however? Here comes the man-babies thinking the world needs to remain the same and be modeled in order to fit their preferences.

The world is evolving. Gay men exist. Gay women exist. If people cannot handle this fact, then they shouldn’t just unfollow a suit company, but they should go out in woods and away from civilization, where they can live their lives the way they want to; with everything focused on themselves.
