But why did they think this was ever a good idea in the first place?

quote:
Disney said on Friday that it has stopped selling a line of panties for girls after parents in Britain complained about the message printed on them.

The underwear, made for ‘tween girls, invited the the reader to ”Dive In” and was, according to company officials, themed for a swimming pool scene from the Disney Channel hit movie,”High School Musical 2.”


Disney says no to musical panties

Granted, it isn't as though pre-teens aren't being sexualized in other ways by other companies - this is just an especially bad example of it.

Yet, they didn't say no to this?

Too late.

I read that page and suddenly the room filled with smoke. Then a witch appeared, but before she could turn me into a newt I managed to dash away and hide in the bathroom.
