Mainstream Bullying

Something has been brought to my attention that is highly offensive and alarming. Not only is it rude and disrespectful, it is promoting negative behavior in our youth. I refuse to pay the prices of the over rated Abercrombie & Fitch, now I will be purposefully shopping anywhere else but Abercrombie & Fitch because of the ignorance and hate generated from their CEO's comments. Sounds like he has more money then sense. If this is his marketing strategy - someone needs to go back to school himself! What comes around, goes around. He is spewing his negative comments toward a stereo type, but it could also bite him in him ugly butt one day too! I guess he's never heard of the saying - you shouldn't throw stones in a glass house.

This is where we all can agree, if you are sitting in a circle with a group full of people and someone places a W on the floor, some will see the W and some will see something different - such as an M. Here the CEO depicts "fat chicks" as a stereo type that will never be associated with the cool kids. Really? His insecurity is unhealthy, and he is feeding this filth to younger generations, that do wear their clothing. He is stated as saying that he only wants the thin, cool kids to wear his clothing. Is this really what we want to teach our children? This unhealthy behavior can also be defined as bullying, something people have been working diligently on within the school systems to prevent. This form of inappropriate behavior needs to be properly managed. Something this CEO is lacking - class! Bullying has to stop! What better way then to show your kids integrity - tell them that Abercrombie & Fitch are bullies because of their disrespectful statements, and refuse to buy their merchandise. My perspective is, I wouldn't want to wear the 'label' because I would not want to be associated with such filth. Does this mean that I am not 'cool' - then so be it! Damn straight ~ because I am hot!
