Anderson Cooper Puts J.C. Penney on The RidicuList
Yes, I, too, heard about J.C. Penney's sale of the disturbing T-shirt for little girls with the slogan, "I'm too pretty to do homework, so my brother has to do it for me." At BlogHer.com, Shannon L.C. Cate wrote about the controversy expressing the same concern that women and some men all over the Internet voiced as soon as news of the T-shirt broke.
The department store has since pulled the T-shirt from the shelves, but I decided to post Anderson Cooper's commentary on the matter anyway since in it he shows other sexist T-shirts marketed to youngsters that give stifling messages about gender roles. The CNN anchor added J. C. Penney to his RidicuList last night.
