"The store is called Kids N Teen, and it is located in the Greeley Mall. That's where some parents say they are outraged to have found crotchless panties sold near items clearly targeted for young kids....."

WTF?

Why are you surprised? Children as young as 9 are being used as models in very provocative/sexual photos. Sexually suggestive clothing is designed for little girls - and sells because there are plenty of mothers willing to pay for such items. There are plenty of mothers (and fathers) who are happy to exploit their daughters as "models" as it translates into money. No different than the childrens pageant shows where little girls are transformed into little women to win the prize money.

Not so much that but the tight shorts and shirts is the in thing. I have to fight my daughter (and wife) all the damn time to get her to not wear that crap. I guess basketball shorts aren't good enough for her. LOL

Your wife needs to get on the same page as you, not to encourage it.

I think you're wrong Sam....If my children were still teenagers I would be standing on someones desk...I didn't then and I don't now want children exposed to anything of this nature when they are so young. When my youngest was 13 it was belly shirts...and now it's crotchless panties??? I think not. Anything that is only sold in adult stores, adult magazines or Victoria's Secret has no business being sold in a store for kids. Remember the stores target is young children and teens....any parent that thinks this stuff is ok for their child needs INtolerance camp.

Oh she hears me loud and clear then my daughter shows up ready for school in some tight shorts and I say where did you get em from and she just smiles. She's got the woman whipped beyond belief. They usually end up in the trash and then the real fun starts.

I think the article said about 25% of their inventory was targeted for adults but you know some 13 or 15 year old will be buying them...
