Teach the girls as young as possible

    That the world revolves around their va-jay-jay.



    Suggestive pink Santa panties targeting young girls are being removed from Wal-Mart stores after parents objected to the offensive undergarments.

    The panties, which were sold in the juniors department, seemed to suggest that girls don't need money, they just need a sugar daddy — in this case Santa Claus.

    The hipster briefs — carrying the slogan "Who needs credit cards ..." on the front and "When you have Santa" on the derriere — caused an uproar among parents, who called for the $2.96 drawers to be pulled off the racks.

    "We have directed our stores to remove this merchandise from our shelves," Linda Brown Blakely, a spokeswoman for Wal-Mart, told FOXNews.com Wednesday.

    The undergarments had caused a stir on some blogs prior to Wednesday's announcement. Scarlett, a reader of Feministing.com, alerted the blog to the holiday-inspired undies, which she found on a rack in the juniors department of a Wal-Mart in Cary, N.C.

    "There's nothing quite like telling adolescent girls that they don't need to worry about finances since they have their very own moneypot between their legs," Jessica Valenti, the executive editor of Feministing.com, wrote on the panty blog post.

    Scarlett was so incensed by the message on the front of the panties, she didn't even see the Santa kicker in the rear, she wrote on the blog.

    "I still think that the entire thing is messed up. This isn't just a cute T-shirt that says 'Just ask Santa,'" she wrote. "This is a pair of panties. Exactly how nice to Santa would the girl have to be in order to get stuff?"

    I certainly thought, upon initial inspection, it was a reference to not needing credit cards when you have a poonanny.

    Somehow seeing the words "upon initial inspection" in a thread about junior-size panties made me feel funny in a wrong, wrong way.

    To be fair, I assume anorexic, coked-up movie stars probably have to shop in the juniors department, but probably not at Wal-Mart.

    I thought this was the best line in the story:

    Until I got to the last quote:

    The best part of this story is that Fox agrees with Feministing.

    Am I wrong in thinking that this is much ado about bubkes? It's just an attempt at putting a cute saying on a piece of clothing. Now if Wal-Mart were marketing barely-there Victoria's Secret panties to young teens, that would be far more worrisome in the area of promoting precociousness.

    If you want your daughters running around in pink panties that says "Who needs credit cards" on the crotch, hey more power to you.

    Think of it this way: Who would be reading the "cute saying" on a pre-teen's panties?

    No one. And that's the point. If it gives the wearer a giggle, whatever. It in no way promotes sexuality, unless you really wanna go out of your way to twist things.
