The conservatives and gender-boundary-fascists over at FoxNews are all up in arms over the most recent J. Crew catalog, which shows company president Jenna Lyons' son wearing pink toenail polish. “This is a dramatic example of the way that our culture is being encouraged to abandon all trappings of gender identity,” psychiatrist Dr. Keith Ablow wrote in his column on FoxNews.com.
