Ahh Childhood: Sandboxes, Skipping … Crotchless Underwear?Mike Adamick
You know what kills me? Going into a store that sells T-shirts for boys featuring sports or school logos or something about being adventurous and daring and awesome. And then seeing the girls section and all the frilly butterflies and ice cream cones and “I’m so glam!” crap, with nary a mention of daring.
What. The. What?
The store is called “Kids N Teen” so it’s possible that these things were meant for teenagers, although the customer who called BS on this said the store is largely selling clothes for much younger kids and thought the thongs seemed aimed at a 7-year-old audience. Weird. Bad. Tasteless. Who would do this? Who would buy this? It’s not like 7 year olds are walking around with an Amex or a Visa (unless they’re a Kardashian possibly), so who’s footing the bill for these? Who’s thinking, “These would be perfect for our trip to Princesses on Ice!”
But you know, I’m going to go ahead and assume these were meant for the teens section of the Kids N Teens of the store, and that be-murks the waters. Older teens and younger ones, too, are indeed getting it on, and I don’t doubt for a moment that my daughter will too, just as her mom and dad did before her. But at what age do you think it’s appropriate for this kind of outfit?
