The J.C. Penny t-shirt scandal is ridiculous. I would say they need to grow a pair, but that might be interpreted as sexist (it’s a colloquialism).
This shirt was deemed offensive and degrading to young girls.
Thankfully, the Village Voice was on top of things and has prevented the downfall of civilization. They successfully bullied JCP in to removing the item. (see story here)
Does anyone at the Village Voice even shop at J.C. Penny?
Does anyone at the Village Voice object to the Junior Miss Hooker attire available at most clothing stores targeting younger girls?
If the shirt had said, “Too Beefcake To Do Homework So My Sister Does It For Me”, would there have been a similar outcry?
Why not go to the root of the problem and have Justin Beiber removed?
Hopefully, this shirt will become a hot commodity on the “black market.” If my daughter had a brother, I’d buy it for her. Kudos to JCP for this edgy, potentially viral, marketing campaign.
