Too Pretty For Homework? Excuse Me??!!

"I'm too pretty for homework, so my brother has to do it for me." oooh, I wish my daughter would say something like that to me, so I can knock some sense into that pretty little head!

If you haven't heard by now JCPenney pulled this sweatshirt from their online store, (which also included "Who has time for homework when when there's a new Justin Bieber album out? She'll love this tee that's just as cute and sassy as she is." in the description) once it's started buzzing around the internet.

I mean come-on, I get it. It's suppose to be funny, but it's not. If you have a daughter like me you understand that you want her to grow up with some self-respect and self-worth, and not be looked at as a joke or a future bimbo. This shirt is the exact opposite of what we should be teaching our daughters. Am I right?

  3. Stephanie: I'm glad they did too.

    Tiffany: lol. I know it's supposed to be light-hearted, I just think they had the wrong target audience. Having young impressionable girls feel that they can get by on their looks just sends the wrong message. My husband thought it was hilarious on the other hand...

  4. Ridiculous. Hopefully just a PR stunt.

  5. Well, their whole PR team should get a medal--because it worked!
