Ad man fired by agency over "transphobia"

Heroic truth-teller, McInnes above

Gavin McInnes, chief creative officer of Rooster in New York, has been asked to take an indefinite leave of absence following the publication of a transphobic essay.

Published earlier this week on Thought Catalog, "Transphobia is Perfectly Natural" has at publication received 2,082 comments. It has also sparked a "Boycott Rooster" movement, with Tumblr and Twitter accounts asking followers to let Rooster clients—Vans, Red Bull, Fox Sports and others—know they will not support companies that work with McInnes.

"Gavin's views are his own and do not represent those of the company or its members," said a Rooster representative. "We are extremely disappointed with his actions and have asked that he take a leave of absence while we determine the most appropriate course of action."

McInnes co-founded Rooster in 2010 as an agency that would make ads for people who hate ads. He has appeared in the shop's work for Vans, most recently as the man who explains how to do absolutely everything.


That his comments were correct seems to have been ignored.  I have put his essay up on POLITICAL CORRECTNESS WATCH

Once again the oh-so-tolerant liberals show just how intolerant they really are. Disagree with them and watch your career di8sappear.

The Dems have to protect their voting blocs, just as Reps protect their gun toting, bible thumping rednecks.

The "redneck, bible thumpers" need no protection, thank you very much, from those who cringe at the sound of a banjo....
