Popular U.K. discount retailer Primark has pulled a line of sexy padded bikinis from its shelves after complaints from child protection agencies and criticism from a tabloid newspaper.
The bathing suits had enough padding in the halter top to make girls as young as 7-years-old look like they had breasts. They came in both black and white polka dot, and hot pink with gold stars.
We wonder why there is such a problem with child abuse. Retailers sell trashy clothing for parents to buy and dress their small children in. Make no mistake, this was on the shelf because it sells.
Anyone that reads this blog knows where I stand on child abuse and know that I am not condoning what these animals do. The question is though, are we inviting trouble with stuff like this?
