The Boys T-shirt designs contain inappropriate messages for children according to critics.
The graphic T-shirts, which were featured on the boys section of Forever 21’s website, got slammed for appearing to sexualize young children and perpetuating negative gender stereotypes.
The shirts included the phrases: “Sorry Ladies I only date models,” “Hola ladies,” “Chicks are all over me,” and “Ladies man.”
HOWEVER; there are baby onesies with the same wording available!
Why is it cute when babies wear it, but offensive when young boys wear it? An 8-year-old is for the most part still very innocent??? -Charlie’s thoughts!
Before the T-shirts were removed, critics said that the retailer’s graphic T-shirts could negatively affect children in the LGBT community and young girls’ self-esteem.
