In order to protect the dignity of theosebes (no comments) I'm not going to bother quoting the actual catch phrases here, but you know the t-shirts worn by teenage girls with the not quite as clever as they think they are sexually suggestive double-entendres (sometimes they don't eve bother being double). As a father of three girls I'm usually dumbfounded that any parent would let his child walk out of the house wearing them. But when the parents are asked their answers are predictable:
Her mother, Yakini Ajanaku, does not mind her daughter's T-shirts because she said Ashli wears them to be ironic. "I know she's a sweet girl, and I know that she's very conservative and is not sexually active," Ajanaku said. "Other people would probably get the wrong message, but I am pretty much like, 'Who cares what they think?' "
Ironic, nudge, nudge, wink, wink--say no more.
Joanne Wynn said her daughter's shirts are humorous. "If it's not in good taste, I don't let [her] wear it," she said....
Most parents interviewed said that they would rather not see their kids wear the racy shirts but that they sometimes give in. Rosa Pulley tried to order her daughter Keana, 17, a Gar-Field senior, to return a T-shirt that says, "yes, but not with u!" But Keana insisted. "I have to pick my battles," the mother said. "Okay, I don't like it. She's wearing it, but it could be something worse."
It could always be worse.
Wake up, parents!
