A Father’s Letter to Victoria’s Secret


Every father rues the day that his little girl discovers push up bras and crotch-less panties.

Dear Victoria’s Secret,
.
I am a father of a three year old girl. She loves princesses, Dora the Explorer, Doc McStuffins and drawing pictures for people. Her favorite foods are peanut butter and jelly, cheese and pistachios.
.
Even though she is only three, as a parent I have had those thoughts of my daughter growing up and not being the little girl she is now. It is true what they say about kids, they grow up fast. No matter how hard I try I know that she will not be the little ball of energy she is now; one day she will be a rebellious teenager that will more than likely think her dad is a total goof ball and would want to distance herself from my embarrassing presence.
.
I know that this is far down the line and I try to spend as much time as I can with her making memories of this special time.
.
But as I read an article today posted on The Black Sphere, it really got me thinking that maybe the culture that we currently find ourselves in is not helping the cause.
.
Recently I read an article that Victoria’s Secret is launching a line of underwear and bras aimed at middle school aged children. The line will be called “Bright Young Things” and will feature ” lace black cheeksters with the word “Wild” emblazoned on them, green and white polka-dot hipsters screen printed with “Feeling Lucky?” and a lace trim thong with the words, “Call me” on the front.”
.
As a dad, this makes me sick.
.
I believe that this sends the wrong message to not only my daughter but to all young girls.
I don’t want my daughter to ever think that her self-worth and acceptance by others is based on the choice of her undergarments. I don’t want my daughter to ever think that to be popular or even attractive she has to have emblazon words on her bottom.
.
I want my daughter (and every girl) to be faced with tough decisions in her formative years of adolescence. Decisions like should I be a doctor or a lawyer? Should I take calculus as a junior or a senior? Do I want to go to Texas A&M or University of Texas or some Ivy League School? Should I raise awareness for slave trafficking or lack of water in developing nations? There are many, many more questions that all young women should be asking themselves… not will a boy (or girl) like me if I wear a “call me” thong?
.
I want my daughter to know that she is perfect the way she is; I want my daughter to know that no matter what underwear she is wearing it does not define her.
.
I believe that this new line “Bright Young Things” thwarts the efforts of empowering young women in this country. “Bright Young Things” gives off the message that women are sex objects. This new line promotes it at a dangerously young age.
.
I implore you to reconsider your decision to start this line.
.
By doing so you will put young girl’s self-esteem, self-worth and pride above profits.
.
Sincerely,

Rev. Evan Dolive
Houston, TX

What makes him think that his daughter will be wearing any underwear with that tight mini dress.

Many times, I have seen really young girls walking out of VS. Often with young guys.

What a fag! If your girl wants to wear slutty underwear, who gives a shit?  Just get her some birth control and let her do her thing.  Guy is obviously paranoid about his horrible parenting skills.  Don't blame Victoria Secret for teen girls being sluts, blame their parents.

This is how have every dad with a daughter feels, the quicker he excepts the fact that she will grow up to be a whore jizz bucket, the easier his life will be.

Dear Unborn Daughter,

 

I have enough doubts if the world is the right place for you. However hard I may try you will hear of Paris Hilton before you do of Helen Keller, you will be forced to idolize the gyrations of a catwalk than the genius of a Marie Curie, you will aim acceptance by a man to define your social status rather than aiming for the charisma of a Golda Meir or the greatness of a Mother Teresa, and your self-esteem will be cannibalized by people who commoditize you everyday and then stick-out the carrot of a "women's day" campaign to create a matrix of respect for you...

 

Please do not be cross if  ever dad decided not to get you in this filth.

 

love,

an unborn Dad

I have a daughter and as a rule I don't get involved in any aspect of her underwear choices because I am not a creep

If he's not happy with Victoria Secrets line of Middle Schooler underwear, he should shop for her at Fredrick's of Hollywood.

What the world needs is a Casey Anthony line of panties for little girls.  Each pair is boldly embossed with the "beautiful life" logo and comes complete with a gps locator just in case the wearer gets locked in the trunk of an abandoned toyota.

He's a little too concerned about his three year old's undies. Freak..

First of all, any father that is concerned with his daughters underwear is a little creepy. Secondly instill those beliefs at home, do your job as a father. Never leave your moral decisions up to a corporation, they will chose profits everytime!

Dear Rev,

 

Just tell you daughter that at the age of 3 you are not going to allow her to dress like a whore. If a company markets a product and nobody buys it then eventually the company will take the product off the market. Remember "New Coke"?

Planktonfeed

There is like 5000 other things a girl could wear...I mean literally they have not saturated the market enough...I think it would be sick for a parent to guide their kid into being a slut but this is just one of 4999 other choices.

Anthony Cumia has alot of money tied up into this clothing line, its jerks like this that make him so jaded.

gonna throw my honest "Dad" opinion out there again...be truthful with your kids tell them exactly what that piece of clothing makes you look like and why guys like it...end result is that she will have to make her own choice at some point.  I want her to have all the facts upfront instead of some cheeky advertisement or neighborhood kids.

Every time I hear one of these twits say shit like this or "what am I suppose to tell my children" I immediately think they should have the kids taken away for being too stupid to procreate.

Hard to believe that someone who signed a letter "Rev." would find issue with Victoria's Secret.

Somebody keep an eye on this guy immediately. He's up to some shenanigans with little girls I guarantee it. This is his cover I smell a rat

I sympathize but this guy isn't ready to deal with a 13 year old girl realistically.  Kids that age are a bundle of hormones. He's hoping for a larger, smarter 6 year old.

"Should I raise awareness for slave trafficking or lack of water in developing nations? "

 

Asked no one. Ever.

 @DanARou This man speaks the truth. The reverend who posted this was completely misinformed. By stating that he had a daughter in it and he wanted her to grow up without being "overly sexualized", he was trying to give people a false sense of sympathy. Plus, there was never actually a clothing line aimed at middle school aged girls in the first place.

I know one thing. You'll NEVER find any little girl slut clothes at Wal Mart or places like that...

 @Amsterclam That's exactly the problem with everyone that thinks like this, they want to raise lifetime children. When you have a kids you are raising an eventual adult. Teach them adult stuff you dummies.
