My guess is that the guy who runs this place was born in San Francisco:
This is nothing but a case of a company desperately using an inflammatory image to get people to notice them. What's even more sad and pathetic is that by patronizing liberal dollars Manhattan Mini-storage assumes that potential customers can be bought off with cheap (and unfunny) political sloganeering. Of course, since most liberals are idiots I can understand that logic. But I'd still be interested in seeing a Republican walk in one of their stores just to see if Manhattan-Mini Storage was really about the buck or just playing on people's sympathies.
A Manhattan Mini Storage billboard on Manhattan's West Side Highway is again stirring up both opprobrium and approbation.
A large sign at 44th Street and Twelfth Avenue shows a wire hanger with the words "Your closet space is shrinking as fast as her right to choose."
An earlier ad for the company read, "Your Closet's Scarier Than Bush's Agenda."
The president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, William Donohue, told The New York Sun the sign was "insulting and highly offensive." The president of a Manhattan-based nonprofit organization, Morality in Media, Robert Peters, said he did not know why the company would want to turn away a significant number of potential customers, such as immigrants from more conservative cultures. But the associate vice president of public affairs for Planned Parenthood of New York City, Roger Rathman, applauded the billboard. "We think it's fabulous," he said. "We salute Manhattan Mini Storage for helping to make New Yorkers as aware as we are of the growing restrictions on reproductive freedom in this country."
Most Manhattan residents support abortion rights, a spokeswoman for NARAL Pro-Choice America, Mary Alice Carr, said. She said it is great when a company wears "its pro-choice values on its sleeve Â-- or on its building."
