Over this shirt, tweets have been flying. Now, that is obviously not something I am teaching my daughter, but I have to admit I am the one that giggled when I saw the shirt. I must have a sick sense of humor, but just because I giggled over it, doesn’t mean I am saying it’s okay to use your looks to get out of anything or move forward.
I simply saw it as a snarky shirt kinda like the one I got my daughter that has headphones and the cord spells out “Not Listening”. I am obviously not teaching my child to not listen. Or the shirt I got my son, I am by NO MEANS saying these things are okay but I did get a giggle out of the shirt I got him. Here is a picture of it:
It’s called snarkiness and a lot of the people that are all up in arms are snarky about things (obviously not this). Am I the only one that thinks this is making something out of nothing. I mean I am teaching my kids responsibility and to work hard for what they want, use their brains and I giggled at the shirt. I absolutely didn’t think it was meant to be taken seriously.
My daughter is told all the time she is the prettiest in the world but it doesn’t let her get away with anything. She is taught she has to earn what she wants and her responsibilities are hers no one elses. Same thing goes for my sons. I guess my sense of humor is just a little different and didn’t read more into it than just something that was meant to cause a laugh. I’m obviously the odd one out and that’s strange because usually I am the one on the side outraged LOL. Wonder if the outrage will make a difference and they will pull the shirt, time will tell.
I hope people can remain mature and not attack those who have different views on this if you choose to comment or tweet. Who knew a shirt could cause so much controversy? Now I am off to do some much needed house stuff, but when my daughter gets home I shall sit with her while SHE does her homework. She’s pretty AND does her own homework…who would of thought!
