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

    I was raised in a very religous family - extremely protected from all things 'ungodly' - and I sure as heck wasn't exposed to even a single image of a fashion model or butt cheek. (being raised in a very religious town - itw as easy for my parents to pull off).

    I never wore a bikini - we weren't even allowed to wear shorts or pants, only dresses and skirts. We weren't in some cult or living in a compound, either - my parents just fel it their duty to protect me from the 'evils of the world'
    I was molested my whole childhood in that town by religious people
    I had fantasies of becoming a stripper when I was in highschool so the boys would love to look at me
    I still ended up knocked up at age 17 and I can pole and belly dance.

    What I wore during the summer had absolutely nothing ot do with the way my life went. My parents bizarre obcessive 'protectionism' really made me more intrigued by these no-no things.

    There's a lot more to what a person is made of and why they are the way they are than seeing some pictures of people and wearing little shorts.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    However.

    Isn't this the fantastic "free market" you guys keep trumpeting.

    hey...If their POS parents are stupid enough to buy it for them......

    the parents are the ones who should be kicked in the ass over this. if people weren't buying it A&F wouldn't be selling it.

    So while I say something like that.

    I do not wish to actually see it implemented.

    Free Markets the free market right?

    Oh and another thing. You think its parents buying this for their kids? Have you been to a mall lately on a Saturday and Sunday.

    Kids as young as 10+ walking around together on their own, buying stuff from stores.
    That is a failing parent that lets the child decide what she wears.

    There are too many parents that dress their little girls as sluts very young, 3 or 4.

    Why buy half tops or jeans with words on the ass area if you don't want to call atention to that area.

    If a 10 year old is buying that stuff at the mall, it is because her mother allows her to wear that stuff.

    I am glad I have a boy because I know my ex girlfriend would dress her in clothes like this.

Hell in this pussy day and age we have, kids don't even get jobs at 14 (that's when I got my first job, I was 14 and asked my dad for a video game, he told me to get a job). The parents can control their children. It just takes a lot of work, and if you were lazy early on in your kid's life you're going to have a much harder time now imposing limits. But one can. I've seen very well behaved children who understand some rather complex ideals for their age. But that was involved parenting from the start.

    Having kids isn't easy, well raising kids ain't. It takes a lot of work and you have to be involved. An involved parent can have a 13-14 year old child roaming the mall not buying jail bait clothing.

    The end solution to the outrage over this, people need to be better parents. Quit churning out sluts! Dads, I'm looking at you on this one. Who the hell wants their daughter to be a slut? Get some values and face time in there with your children.
    I know this won't be politically correct, I don't give a ****, but if there is a strong father figure in the home, I don't think a girl would even try to wear sluttly clothes. She wouldn't get away with it.

    The mother has no standing to tell the daughter not to do it as she probably did it too, and then you get into the argument of do as I say not as I do. That doesn't work with kids.

    I realize fathers have been discarded buy feminists but for the most part, the most well adjusted kids I have known have come from homes with strong father figures in them.

    What a sexist, ridiculous comment to make...By this logic, single mothers necessarily raise sluts.

    Abercrombie shouldn't be the ones to blame for someone buying their product, how about the consumer, or consumers parent? Nobody forced them to purchase it.
