Second thoughs about #FitchtheHomeless

I posted some of my thoughts on a recent article by Relevant Magazine about the CEO of Abercrombie & Fitch with his nasty remarks about people. 
The point should not be to level the playing field so that we can all wear A&F, the point should be that we stop wearing it because it has offended us.  (Not that I ever wore it being outside the target sizes.)  However, we ought to also stop wearing Hollister and Gilly Hicks since those are also A&F.  Homeless people have feelings too, though, and many would rather wear something that lines up with their ethics.  Yes, homeless people have ethics and morals because they're actual people and not just street detritus.  But yes, I do recall there being a preference that their clothing not be donated to non-cool people.  Note to exclusionary groups: best not let people know or put a positive spin on it so it's not so offensive.

Why Fitchthehomeless backfires.
