Are we too sensitive?
Forever 21 has pulled its "Allergic to Algebra" shirts, after receiving complaints from critics and retail customers. Just weeks ago, JCPenney's pulled their, "I'm too pretty to do homework so my brother has to do it for me". Critics say that these shirts are telling young girls that it is more important to be pretty than smart. A senior marketing manager for Forever 21 released a statement, saying, “We would like to apologize to our customers as our intent was not to discredit education and we are taking the proper actions necessary.”
