My wife wants a boob job. I don’t like fake boobs — never have, probably never will. So I asked why she would get her breast enlarged knowing I don’t like silicone. Her answer is what made me think about a few things. She said “I’m not getting it for you — I’m getting it for me; it makes me feel better to have more to fill in clothes that never seem to fit right. I want it for me.”
So the boob job makes her feel more “womanly” … or last least more happy with her self and increases her self esteem. Ok I get that.
So why did parents all over the USA lose their minds when Abercrombie and Fitch release children’s thong underwear?
Even the head of Abercrombie had something to say about the crazed parents:
Jeffries (CEO FOR 17+ years!) Pre-Teen Child’s Line Of Clothes
“People said we were cynical, that we were sexualizing little girls. But you know what? I still think those are cute underwear for little girls. And I think anybody who gets on a bandwagon about thongs for little girls is crazy. Just crazy! There’s so much craziness about sex in this country. It’s nuts! I can see getting upset about letting your girl hang out with a bunch of old pervs, but why would you let your girl hang out with a bunch of old pervs?”
The PR department even added ” “The underwear for young girls was created with the intent to be lighthearted and cute,” the company said. “Any misrepresentation of that is purely in the eye of the beholder.” ”
The CEO, Jeffries, has some interesting comments all around. “”Listen, do we go too far sometimes? Absolutely. But we push the envelope, and we try to be funny, and we try to stay authentic and relevant to our target customer. I really don’t care what anyone other than our target customer thinks.”"
About the line: A few years age A&F sold a line of thong panties designed and marketed for the Tween Set, girl’s between the ages of seven and twelve. They were stylish and trendy coming in such colors as blues and pinks. They also had “Wink Wink” and “Eye Candy” on them as well.
How many people see your underwear? Why does underwear = sex? Unless the girl is intentionally wearing the thong/g-string high out of her pants to be seen, NO ONE sees her underwear. So why can’t she wear what she wants.
Is there some age chart that I missed? She must be in granny-sized panties under age … 10? Although WalMart doesn’t sell thongs for kids, they sell cloth/cotton panties in all styles including bikini, and boy-shorts — which to some, are even cuter than thongs.
So why does thong underwear for kids make people lose their minds?
