    Re: Abercrombie criticized for selling push-up tops to little girls

    Everybody in the suburbs knows that Abercrombie is the training ground for the future hoes and "bisexual when drunk only in order to get attention from guys" college girls of society. This is neither surprising nor upsetting. Don't buy it for your kids if you don't like it...but if they want it, good luck in a few years!

    Such as the power of advertising and media.

    Young kids always aspire to seem older (obviously not as a general rule but it is something that happens) and what does the media say a woman should look like? what should she have?

    Media is powerful, and has a powerful effect on Children.
    Regulate what your children watch. I know several couples who don't have much in the way of Cable. They do a lot over Netflix where they can choose programs to watch (like Dukes of Hazzard!). There is very limited television, and all television time is supervised. They talk about commercials and all that stuff too, about advertising, appropirate behavior/clothing, etc. It's worked out well for them

    Again, you can't just plop your child down in front of the TV or drop them off at the mall and think everything will be ok. You have to be involved.

    Yeah - because we certainly don't want girls to grow up and be women in bikinis . . . look - I see the concerns, but a bikini for little girls or football for little boys isn't where it's at for me.

    Forgive me Ikari.

    But your expectations for parents are waaaaaaaaay to high.

    EVERY generation seems like its the least moral one....

    A sign perhaps we're getting old.

    It is Sickening to me. I quite honestly think stuff like this should be outlawed.

    However.

    Isn't this the fantastic "free market" you guys keep trumpeting.
    I'd have to agree with you... They are just going to make a product somebody else won't, because it might bring in some money... It's a market to cater to, and I am sure they will sell in some places like where girl's get implants before they graduate high school sometimes.

    Ever see Toddlers and Tiaras? I bet some of those show parents would buy these tops for their 2 year olds to wear in the swimsuit competition...

    I would say that I have seen more ****ty parents than I have exceptionally great parents. Thank god I am not a parent. It looks hard to raise a kid.

    Re: Abercrombie criticized for selling push-up tops to little girls

    I've spent some time at an elementary school lately. Scary how mature some of those little girls are looking. I saw some fourth graders who actually need bras. Remember the Brooke Shields ads for Calvin Klein. Dang, remember the Brook Shields movie, PRETTY BABY??

    Interesting times. It's nice there are still some who object to this kind of stuff.

    Re: Abercrombie criticized for selling push-up tops to little girls

    Abercrombie should be criticized for selling clothes like this. It may be wrong for the government to get involved, but doesn't mean society can't criticize unethical behavior. Sexualizing children is wrong and corporations who sell products which enable such behavior should be treated like anyone else who who sells out their morals for a buck.
