Happy Holidays, from WalMart.

The Junior's Department at Walmart is selling these interesting panties, suggesting, to put in clearly, that young girls don't need credit cards, because they have a more valuable asset within their knickers. Christ.

From Feministing, through Jezebel. Good lord- I've just churned through about 5 books about marketers defining teens, and pushing sexuality to young girls as part of KGOY (Kids Growing Older Younger) strategies, but this is ridiculous to the extreme and unspeakably offensive.

Link to Feministing's original rant on this, complete with contact info at Walmart, should you feel sufficiently outraged/disgusted to spend a few seconds letting them know. These are the people who censor cd's, for the love of Pete.
