How quickly we forget...
Remember these tee shirts? And the controversy?
In case you don't remember, JC Penney was selling tees that said "I'm too pretty to do homework so my brother has to do it for me." After a big online uproar and threats of boycotts, Penney's pulled the tees.
So when I was reading today everyone's pleas to please shop at Penney's this weekend, I decided to see if that was something I really would like to do.
And this is why:
And the boys don't get much better treatment:
I know everyone draws the line at what is objectionable and objectifying to put on a child's tee shirt, so I understand not all of you reading this will think these phrases and slogans are all so terrible.
And while I wouldn't boycott Penney's over these shirts, I certainly wouldn't rush out to shop there this weekend, either.
