Tupelo, MS (CNS) – Youth oriented retailer Abercrombie & Fitch is drawing some heat of a new line of t-shirts that are targeted at college students. The American Family Association (AFA) is upset about the influence of their “sex-as-recreation” lifestyle shirts.
Some of the shirts drawing criticism include one with a picture of a young girl opening her blouse and exposing herself with the saying “Show the Twins.” Another shirt shows a female running nude, stating “Female streaking encouraged,” while another reads “Female Students Wanted for Sexual Research.”
In a widespread email to the press, Tim Wildmon, the president of the AFA stated, “Abercrombie & Fitch does not merely sell a popular line of clothing, they sell a lifestyle. And because A&F clothing is popular among teens and college kids, the influence of their sex-as-recreation lifestyle is widespread.”
The AFA’s main concern is that Abercrombie & Fitch doesn’t sell only to college-aged youth, but also to teens and sometimes pre-teens. The organization accuses the retailer of continuing to “push pornographic-themed material” and wants the store to pull their “sexualized shirts”
