Girls Who Get It

I am glad to see that there are still some girls out there in the up and coming generation who get it. I know of many who don't. And these girls don't just get it for themselves, they are calling others to get it as well. And in doing so they are taking on one of the biggest purveyors of scandelous clothing for the "way-too-young" -- Abercrombie & Fitch. A&F has thrived on its controversial image and, in the article about the girls mentioned above who are proposing a "girlcott" on all things A&F, a couple of marketing gurus claim that in the end A&F will benefit from all the free advertising, just as they did when they put naked men and women in a 2003 catalog.

While boycotts rarely work and I don't often support them, especially an open-ended one like this appears to be, I appreciate these girls for trying to get a message out regarding an organization that preys on girls who think very little about the implications of wearing shirts with slogans like "Who Needs Brains When You Have These?" Society will continue to crumble into a mess of sexual inebriation unless men AND women stand up against organizations that build a culture of sexual delusion. Here are a few resources that you might want to read regarding A&F, girls, and the sexual culture:

About me

Paul was not interested merely in the ethical principles of religion or of ethics. On the contrary, he was interested in the redeeming work of Christ and its effect upon us. His primary interest was in Christian doctrine, and Christian doctrine not merely in its presuppositions but at its centre. -- J. Greshem Machen.
