So Land's End decided to include, as a gift to its customers, a copy of GQ. I mean, sure, I haven't read the magazine in years, but some people like it. According to the Times, though, not all. Not all by a long shot. Among the complaints:

"My 14-year-old son brought in the mail today & was quite disturbed & fascinated by a 'gift' Lands' End sent us — a copy of GQ magazine with an absolutely OBSCENE cover!!!"

"We received your 'Lands' End Bonus' of GQ magazine this weekend, and we are absolutely horrified. How can buying something as family friendly as school uniforms lead to soft porn in the mailbox? I'm thankful my son did not bring in the mail."

"I ordered Christian private school children's uniforms from your company and you sold my home address to a magazine company that peddles in soft porn for men???."

A couple of things:

1) Your son may have been fascinated, but he was in no way disturbed. I guarantee you. If your 14 year-old son is disturbed by breasts, you should probably think about taking him to see someone who isn't a pastor, because that ain't natural.


2) GQ is not soft porn. Don't ask me how I know the distinction, but I can assure you that a woman wearing a strategically-placed lei is not porn in any shape or form. Ask your horrified son; I'm sure he can explain the definition of the term for you.
