"No Hoochie clothes" aka "No you may not have pants that say "juicy" on the butt" aka "Your butt is not a billboard!"
Then later that week we went to Busch Gardens and saw a girl in her teens walking around with a pair of shorts on that said Bootylicious. At that moment I declared there would be no words on my daughter's behind.
It got worse as Caitie got older. I am a Walmart, Target, Kmart shopper. I don't do name brands or department stores. I least I didn't. Until I learned that if I didn't want my daughter to look like a skank at 10 years old I had to find another place to buy her clothes. At one point we bought her t shirts in the boys department so they would cover her belly. Nothing but Hoochie clothes everywhere I looked. It has only gotten worse. I thank God for Justice because while the clothes may scream TWEEN they cover her body. They also cost more than Walmart.
Anyway the other day I read this article by LZ Granderson and it outraged me and tickled my funny bone as well. I like the way he writes and I like the way he thinks so check it out if you want. Just click the link below.
Parents, don't dress your girls like tramps!
