Following numerous complaints, J.C. Penney has removed this t-shirt from their catalog and apologized for the fact that they’d been selling it at all.
I personally do not have daughters, so perhaps my opinion doesn’t count for much, but I’m in the “what’s the big deal?” camp. (Doing a quick mental tally of my nieces, I’d guess that three of them wouldn’t touch this shirt with a ten-foot pole, while the fourth would think it’s cute and buy herself one)
I did agree with pulling this t-shirt a few years back
in part because kids are stupid and some of them would throw rocks. And honestly, if the shirt has read “Girls are stupid. Throw rocks at them,” would anybody have even considered selling them?
But we’re discussing the “I’m too pretty” shirts today…
We have a fairly large basement. The previous owners had installed an automatic sump pump in the southwest corner.
During periods of heavy rain, the basement will take in water at the northeast corner. During events that have the word “Hurricane” in their names, it will take in water on the southeast, northwest and northeast corners.
We have never had a drop of water come through the walls on the northeast corner of the basement. The only time the pump activates is when (twice in the past 12 years) the entire basement is so thoroughly flooded, water can’t help but reach the southwest corner.
