    Another sexist thing to say... Please, I have seen incredible mothers who happen to be single.. Single parents deserve more respect than they get, and btw, why do you think they're single? It could very well be because the father is a POS and doesn't want to help her raise his kid, so she doesn't have a choice about being a single mother.

    I've seen a bit of one episode one day when I was bored and flipping through channels. It seemed more like a "how to be a pedophile and scar your kids for life" show than anything else.

    But Abercrombie isn't the one sexualizing kids, they're just responding to market pressures. We're the ones doing it and if we want to address the root of the problem, we need to put blame where it belongs; with the parents.

    Imagine the trama of having a family like that? I don't find it too funny.

    I was kinda thinking that it didn't sound too hilarious to me. Family strive and friction isn't necessarily a good thing. Sure one could say it's their comeuppance, but it would have been best if everyone could have understood each other and worked together to maintain a good family structure while accepting their daughter.

    I don't know their situation or the girl, so I can't say how she deals with it. But the funny part for me comes from the same thing that a comedic movie making fun of this situation would come from. It's funny because it's ironic. With all potential painful situations comes humor and I've heard many gay people come from homophobic families who know the pain and the humor of it all.

    The parents are certainly by far the most responsible party. That said, they are not the only responsible party. Abercrombie has a choice about whether to design and sell clothes that sexualize children. They are complicit the moment they decide to do evil in return for 20 pieces of silver.

    So you think living in an inner city, whatever that is, makes a girl a slut?

    No matter where the family lives the parents are responsible to teach their kids values.

    If the girl isn't taught the golden rule about life, she will turn out bad.
