I'm curious about what is the significance of the number "69" other than the obvious sexual one? why would a maker of seemingly young adult clothing put that number on there?

As the girl said in the video, it could mean the year 1969. My boys used to have some shirts from Old Navy that looked liked football Jerseys that said "Old Navy '87."

Way to take something that could be innocuous and make it into a big deal.

On the one hand, I think it was pretty silly of the school to blow it out of proportion the way they did. OTOH, don't tell me Old Navy doesn't know what they're doing.

That is so stupid. In Europe it wouldn't be a big deal.

My son played football all four years in highschool. He was on JV his freshman year, and his jersey was number 69. The kids didn't make much of it, but the adults in the stands ribbed us as the parents about it, in a friendly, humorous kind of way. Thankfully, he moved up to Varsity the next year and got the number 72.

In most schools the kids wear their jerseys to school the day of a game. Did the school make a big deal over his jersey number being 69? This is the stupidest thing a school could do. They basically took a little "ha ha" and turned it into a huge deal.

My god how I hate when the parents act naive about the situation. She says that she didnt teach her daughter that. Thats not the issue. Most of the times, the parents didnt teach the children these things. They learn it at school. I guess if the child wore a shirt with the number 420 the mother could say that she didnt teach her daughter that either.

And the little girl says she only bought it because it looked nice. We all know children, especially at her age, always tell the truth. She knows perfectly well what the number stands for, and just because the message is a little more subtle on her shirt does not make it okay to wear it at school.

People should just call it as it is. Another example of a trailer trash mother who thinks that no one else should be able to teach the child appropriate morals and behavior,

It's one less than 70.

It's just a number, I don't see it as a big deal.
