J.C. Penney Criticized For Sexist Shirts For Teens
“I’m too pretty to do homework so my brother has to do it for me.” That’s what was written on a shirt sold by J.C. Penney and targeted to girls ages 7-16. People were getting furious about the shirt, voiced their concerns, and started an online petition to get rid of it. Do you think J.C. Penney is getting sexist with their shirts?
According to The Village Voice, J.C. Penney has decided to discontinue the shirt, which was being sold online. Oh, by the way, the description next to the shirt online said, “Who has time for homework when there’s a new Justin Bieber album out?”
J.C. Penney will probably also be under fire for their shirt that says, “The subjects I TOTALLY ROCK at!” Which are, in order: Shopping, Boys, Music, and Dancing.” I’m betting they will fix this problem fast.
