The folks at Forever 21 must’ve been on vacation a couple of weeks ago when the entire world went ballistic over a JCPenney t-shirt sporting the message,”I’m too pretty to do homework so my brother has to do it for me.” Now Forever 21 has pulled an offensive girls t-shirt from its shelves that read, “Allergic to Algebra.” Equally vomitous.
Better than that, maybe sustained anger over these sorts of messages will prompt companies to not only stop sending out these sorts of sexist messages, but perhaps even infuse a few positive messages into their wares. Gasp and double gasp. Wouldn’t it be nice if a positive back-to-school message made its way into young girls’ wardrobes?
