It was more than 20 years ago when toy maker Mattel apologized for putting the phrase “math class is tough” in the mouth of its Teen Talk Barbie, and history repeated itself today when retailer The Children’s Place found itself under attack for selling a girls’ T-shirt expressing a similar sentiment.

Abortion rights group A Is For… tweeted its outrage, which was echoed by some of the group’s celebrity followers.

Despite pulling the shirt from store shelves, the retailer’s attempt at damage control wasn’t fondly embraced.

How will The Children’s Place atone for its sexist messaging and fully demonstrate its commit to female empowerment? Perhaps it’s time to unveil a line of tampon earrings, Wendy Davis nail art kits, coat hanger brooches and “Keep Jesus out of my vagina” T-shirts for pre-teens.

    Whateva.

  • Tom

    Why should a store have to apologize for selling a product? Just vote with your wallet and DON’T BUY it. Is it a stupid message as far as t-shirt slogans go? Probably, but this just sounds like the forces of manufactured outrage steamrolling a “controversy” that the free market would’ve just taken care of on its own.

    • ElbethL

      Outrage and controversy IS the free market taking care of things. Not buying the shirt is step one, and a good one. Really bad consumer reviews (which is what this whole thing boils down to) are just as legitimate, though. The government didn’t step in and force the store to pull the shirts. Public outcry did. Nor is there anything wrong with fighting negative gender stereotypes by raising a public stink against those who perpetuate them.

      I am a LONG way from pro-abortion. But these shirts were sexist. A social campaign to against them is fantastic. If you disagree, start your own campaign. No one’s stopping you.

      • Tom

        But that’s exactly my point. I DON’T WANT to “start my own campaign”. I have “campaign fatigue” because nowadays there’s a campaign or anti-campaign for every possible cause under the sun. This “issue” doesn’t NEED a campaign, it operates under a simple profit-loss model: If no one buys these shirts, they’ll go away, if someone does buy them, well, then there’s obviously a market for them (a market, by the way, that would implicitly have to consist of WOMEN buying shirts that are supposedly sexist against THEMSELVES) and then there’s nothing to complain about. I mean, I don’t consider myself amoral or anything, in fact, I’d say if anything I’m too moral-IST, but when it comes to someone choosing voluntarily whether or not to display a given t-shirt slogan on their chest, I can’t get too wrapped up in that without it becoming a full-time job. All I’m saying (not to you specifically, but just in general on this topic) is, can we please save the “campaigns” for issues that aren’t readily solvable by simple personal economic decisions? Thank you for your reply! :)

        • ElbethL

          So your complaint is that the people advocating against sexist tees have more energy than you do? Come on, now. That’s part of the market, too.

          • Tom

            No…it’s not about energy, it’s about efficient use of time and attention. If someone asks for your attention sparingly, you usually give it to them, because what they have to say is presumably important. If they ask for it constantly, then even if you give it to them, I defy you to say you keep giving it fully after a certain number of instances. I’m (this sounds poorly-worded in my head, but I’m just gonna go with it) just advocating for the best form of advocacy. Or, perhaps, the “most efficient” form of advocacy (since I know using value-judgement words like “good”, “better”, “best”, “bad” “worse”, “worst” makes some people skittish). Which is more efficient? Just not buying the shirt? Or writing a strongly worded letter/tweet of rebuke to the effect of “Dear Sir or Madam, I’m not buying your sexist shirt, and…you’d better not do it again or else…I won’t buy that one either”. I’m not saying advocacy is a waste of time, because it isn’t, I am, I guess, saying that vocal advocacy on issues where just starving the object of money would eradicate it is a waste of time, yeah. It’s like I started out with initially by saying “vote with your wallet”…I do that, and save my advocacy for issues where “voting with your wallet” doesn’t apply, and only “voting with your vote” can make a difference. To each his own though I guess. Thanks again for the reply!

          • ElbethL

            But you can do both. You can vote with your wallet and your voice. You don’t have to choose one or the other. And if “voting with your voice” changes minds then the long route of trying to boycott a company into non-existence becomes unnecessary. And why go for something as harsh and drawn-out as that if you can persuade?

          • Tom

            Oh, I agree you can do both, I’m sorry if I implied they were mutually exclusive, I’m just saying I don’t feel this is an issue that calls for both.

            I just run the scenario: I walk in the store, see the shirt, and I either say A) “I don’t like the messaging on the shirt, I’m not gonna buy it for myself (if I was a woman)/my daughter/granddaughter/niece/friend/whoever” or B) “Hey, that shirt’s clever/interesting/amusing/aesthetically pleasing/whatever, I think I’ll buy it for myself (again, if a woman)/my daughter/granddaughter/niece/friend/whoever”. If more people do A than B, the shirt goes away, job done…if more people do B than A, then presumably they don’t feel it’s sexist (or–highly unlikely, but theoretically possible– they do feel it’s sexist and want to buy it to deliberately SUPPORT sexism for some reason, and if someone is an agitator to THAT degree, no amount of me trying to reason with them is going to stop them from moving on to some other form of agitation) and there’s nothing to really be done other than me theoretically saying, “Hey, don’t like that thing you like!”, a conversation starter that has never ended well for me, historically. If it were me personally, I opt for choice A, not because I necessarily find it sexist, but at the least find it un-imaginative, un-original, and just plain dumb.

            As far as boycotting companies into non-existence, I don’t believe in doing that and never have. I believe in supply-and-demand dictating what people buy and sell, and since in this case a retailer following sound economic principles would stop selling a shirt people weren’t buying, that would be the end of it. I’ve been out of work before, and knowing the pain of that, I don’t root for anyone who wants to be in business to go out of it. So, boycott their store? No. Refrain from buying a specific product I don’t support and/or don’t want? Absolutely.

            With regards to mind-changing and persuasion, I don’t begrudge people pursuing those strategies, and don’t mean this to sound cynical, but I haven’t personally encountered a high enough success-rate with those principles to be able to rely on them as agents of change. Whether starting a discussion or engaging as a respondent in somebody else’s, I just listen to others’ positions respectfully and try to articulate my own. If people agree with me, great, if not, that’s fine too, we don’t all have to believe the same stuff, but if I let myself get caught up in trying to change minds , then the sheer number of minds I didn’t/couldn’t/wouldn’t change would quickly become all-consuming for me, and I would make me crazier than I already inherently am. :)

            Sorry for the long response this time, it…got away from me. Thanks again for your reply, and since I am not a long-time veteran of internet commenting, just wanted to say I’ve really enjoyed our back-and-forth and I respect your positions and your capacity for intelligent discussion. :)

        • Perilous

          You have campaign fatigue because you are apathetic and selfish. Caring about things and people beyond your own narrow self is a lot of hard work. You should try it sometime. One day it’ll be YOU who needs the help.

          Your attitude is why our society has the problems it does.

          • Tom

            Wow, that’s quite an insightful judgment you extrapolated from…knowing nothing about me. For the record, I DO care about things and people beyond my “own narrow self”, and it isn’t “a lot of hard work”, it’s called LIVING LIFE. Doing ACTUAL hard work is a lot of hard work. As far as “who needs the help”, if ANYONE actually NEEDED help in this scenario, I would be all for it. There is no helpless person here. There is a company marketing a shirt supposedly sexist AGAINST girls/women, TO girls/women, with 2 possible outcomes: One, the shirt doesn’t sell and gets pulled because it’s a poor seller. Two, the shirt sells successfully TO girls/women (or possibly hipster boys/men determined to wear it ironically, ugh), thereby undermining claims of sexism and negating the whole “controversy”.

            As far as your assessment of my attitude? That’s rich. Please, if changing MY attitude would cure what ails our society, again, I’d be all for it. You did a nice job of ticking the boxes in the “liberal psych assessment cliff notes” (don’t know/care if you are liberal, I don’t get into pointless flame wars over that, just pointing out you used that playbook) in your armchair diagnosis of me (apathetic! selfish! care more! narrow-mindedness! changing attitudes!). Best-case scenario, my attitude is fighting AGAINST society’s REAL, actual problems…worst-case, it’s at least trying to slow the descent.

          • ElbethL

            That’s a really harsh and unnecessary thing to say.

          • Adela Wagner

            To call someone apathetic and selfish because they do not adhere to what you consider worthy of attention is rather small minded in itself.

            Tom, from what I can see, is someone who takes care in his replies, and looks at things from a rather logical point of view. You nor I know him and yet you want to call into consideration how he views what he deems important. A rather strange way of disagreeing in my opinion.

            There are some who would say your last line in your post, and point at your avatar.

        • Jaz

          It’s very easy to dismiss the need for so many campaigns when you aren’t a part of the group that’s being repeatedly offended.

    • I Am Breitbart

      That was my thoughts as well…..just don’t buy it! Personally I am so sick of the whole sexism, racism…..this ism that ism when someone doesn’t like something. Just don’t buy the freaking thing and be done! I am offended they are offended! #Venting

  • Lord Foggybottom

    Before freaking out, did anybody check if they were selling a boy’s shirt that had something similar? EVERYBODY: STOP BEING SO SENSITIVE.

    • Emily B

      My son has a similar shirt. I bought it for him because it’s true.

      • Brentagon

        There’s a boys shirt for “Shopping, Dancing and Music are my best subjects”…?

        • Emily B

          No! :) It’s just a similar sentiment. A drawing of a brain divided into different colors, the biggest section is “Food”, another section is “Video Games”, etc. and the tiniest section is labeled “School”.

          • Haley Rachel-Anne

            And that’s not re-enforcing societal gender roles? I would not have bought a shirt like that for my boys, either.

  • Dragomance

    The shirt may have a gender stereotype,but don’t you actually need to be good at math to be really effective at shopping?

    • Sanngrid

      Music requires a ton of math too.

  • CR

    So an organization in favor of aborting little babies (boys AND girls) finds words on a T-shirt so harmful they are worth getting upset over. Ummm… yay, OK.

    Also, this is just a stupid thing to be outraged over. Any little girl who looks at that shirt and is seriously discouraged about her academic abilities or vested with the sudden belief that she really cannot do math is probably too freaking stupid to do math anyway (and also, really, too stupid to be alive)

    I bet these lefty-losers who are pitching a fit about this are the same people who don hoodies and argue that wearing your pants sagging halfway down your a*s shouldn’t matter because clothes don’t reflect who you are anyway!

    • Haley Rachel-Anne

      So let me get this straight. . . You’re against abortion, but then decide that someone “too stupid to do math” isn’t worth having alive? Wow. Way to make your pro-life point.

    • Haley Rachel-Anne

      Also, I didn’t see ONE comment cited in this post by a man sagging his pants “down his ass”. Did you?

    • Kristine Loveland Hartlaub

      OK, only one tweet from 17 in the article was from an abortion rights group. How does that make it a left-wing stance? I know many right-winged women who are believe this is sexist because it stereotypes girls as finding math difficult. Many women in finance disdain people who would suggest that girls cannot be good at math.

  • rangerider

    These “protesters” ought to get a life:-)

  • Emily B

    But…..math IS hard…..

  • annoyinglittletwerp

    I’m a girl-last time I checked anyway-and I’m lousy at math. I’ve always sucked at math. I’ll probably never finish my BA because of it. That shirt was a nothing-burger.

    • ElbethL

      There’s a difference between being a girl who is bad at math and saying that girls are bad at math.

      • Emily B

        But it’s not saying that girls are bad at math. Only if you are wearing the shirt. I agree with annoyinglittletwerp. It’s a nothing-burger. I wouldn’t have thought twice about it had I seen it in the store.

      • annoyinglittletwerp

        When I was in grade school ,there was a shirt out that read, ‘Anything boys can do-girls can do better!’.That shirt was a joke-so is this one. Lighten up, please.

      • Adela Wagner

        Go tell that to your “Constitutional scholar” who was all about visiting the FIFTY SEVEN states.
        You know the one, the one that did not how old his daughter was.
        Remember, he’s the one who said he expected to be President for “eight to ten” years.
        Same one who signed the WRONG year in the Westminster Abbey guestbook.
        Very same who thought “Victory” was a four letter word.
        And seems to think ATM’s cause unemployment….

        Adding up those goofs (there are so many more , but these are some of the MATH ones), you are pointing at the wrong person, who should be crawling back under their rock. Or at the very least, hitting the math books.

      • Jaz

        It is possible to be upset about more than one issue at a time. Sexism, in this instance, has literally nothing to do with Obama, so why did you bother bringing it up here? You don’t know that the same people who find this offensive aren’t upset about Obama’s policies, but it still isn’t relevant.

  • MNWoman

    Wow, this is ridiculous.

    People think way too much about things. If I would have seen the shirt, I would have thought it was cute. It was a joke and I am sure most girls aren’t going to struggle with math because of a joke on a t-shirt.

    As far as sexism goes, I don’t think the shirt gave any indication that math is only hard for girls. If a boy’s shirt had something like football, baseball and hockey checked but math unchecked, would there be equal outrage?

    • Jaz

      It’s not that the shirt that will make her struggle, It’s the subtle ideas it reinforces. “Girls do XYZ and are good at ABC. Boys do DEF and if they like doing XYZ, well stop them, dammit! That’s girl stuff! What is he, a homo? The other kids will make fun of him!”.

      Children become functioning members of society by picking up on cues from other people around them. They see that men and women, boys and girls, are expected to act a certain way. Think of it like this, how did you know as a child that pink was a “girl color” or that girls play with dolls? If a girl rejects these things she’s called a “tomboy”. There is nothing biological that draws girls to these things. Girls don’t come out of the womb lusting after a Barbie. It’s subtly taught that these are things girls want, and as a girl she must want them too. If the message girls learn, and let’s face it, unless she stays locked away at home she will be exposed to outside influences, is that she’s not expected to be good at math because girls aren’t good at it, she’s not going to try as hard. Why bother when she can just shop?

  • Brentagon

    Please keep in mind that these shirts were intended to be worn by children. “Math is hard” might seem like it’s perfectly fine and try for some, but it shouldn’t be a message instilled in kids who haven’t even gotten to the HARD math yet. And “Born to wear diamonds”? … That shirt looks like it’d fit a 6-year-old.

    • Kristine Loveland Hartlaub

      You do realize that messages like this cause girls to dumb themselves down, question their abilities, and avoid math and science courses in high school and college, right? It is a children’s shirt, but that is when the self-esteem and thought patterns start forming.

      • Brentagon

        That’s what I meant to say; where I said “fine and try for some”, I meant to say “fine and TRUE for some”. Typo.
        I meant to say exactly that, that kids that young shouldn’t have those sorts of gender rolls enforced so quickly, because it would negatively affect them.

  • Maxwell

    I’m starting to believe everything offends liberals. Next they’re going to say the shirt is promoting gender stereotypes by being purple.

  • Markward

    People read way too much into things. Its a children’s shirt!

  • ObamaFail

    All joking aside, this is the kind of shirt that a kid would want as a joke. It’s something I know for a fact my older sister would have wanted to wear if it came out when she was a kid. It’s only offensive to people who are so busy trying to find something to play victim over that they can’t see that it’s a harmless t-shirt.

    • Ivy Shoots

      The question is why do YOU feel the need to play victim over what other people do when it doesn’t involve you?

    That last tweet irritates me. The “Our girls matter and deserve a real apology.”
    First of all, your kid isn’t special to anyone but you. They are not a unique snowflake. And what would your definition of a “real apology” be anyway? And second, I doubt your kid even gives a crap about the shirt anyway.

    • Ivy Shoots

      “Our girls” means ALL girls, the very opposite of “unique snowflake.” ALL girls deserve better than this crap. You may not value girls, but your opinion isn’t special to anyone but you. And if you aren’t familiar with what a REAL apology is, do your own research before presuming to join a conversation to comment about it. And third, learn to count. You sound like the Spanish Inquisition.

  • Justin Hogan

    It is a product. It is called humor. If you don’t like it, don’t buy it. With today’s society, I guarantee it was a top seller. Hell, my daughter would love that shirt and she gets straight A’s in AP math. People need to get a sense of humor and get over themselves.

    • Ivy Shoots

      If she gets straight A’s in Math, why would she love a shirt announcing that she’s not good at it? You keep using that word “humor;” I do not think it means what you think it means.

      • Justin Hogan

        The shirt does not say that she is not good at math. It merely points out that her best subjects are shopping, music and dancing. She would agree with that assessment. She loves all 3. She doesn’t like math. She does math and does it well. If you want to see the shirt as irony instead, shopping, music and dancing all require some degree of math.

        Maybe you should read the shirt before making an ass out of yourself.

  • Leslie

    It’s not a male/female thing. It’s a kids thing. I think it’s safe to assume most kids do not enjoy school work (math in particular.) My favorite subject in school was recess. When I was older and recess disappeared, I simply counted down the hours until it was time to make my escape. The shirt’s message is not sexist. The folks walking around with a chip on their shoulder because they can’t see past their own agenda are sexist. I will never again wonder why our country is so desperately off course. The most vocal and seemingly influential members are morons.

    • Ivy Shoots

      It’s a “female thing” because it’s a GIRL’S shirt. They don’t sell it for boys, nor would a boy be accepted in public in that shirt. And you called those who GOT that “morons?”

  • kblue905

    A decade ago, I would not have even noticed the shirt. Then, I birthed a math prodigy of the XX variety and got sucked into the world of STEM charter schools, robotics competitions, rocketry clubs and NASA summer camps. She’s usually outnumbered 8:1 by the boys, and even at such a young age, has already faced the gender stereotype prevalent in the STEM field. Rather than be offended by small minds, she embraced it by making her own sparkly, rhinestone encrusted “Rocket Girl” and “von Braun” outfits to wear to competitions. When you’re an 18 year old boy, the only thing worse having your robot beaten by a girl, is having it beaten by a 10 year old girl wearing a sparkly tutu!

    • Markward

      Steely eyed rocket girl!

    • Jaz

      It’s great you raised such a smart girl and encouraged her the way you have. You are obviously an intelligent man. Everyone with a daughter is not. Some people honestly want their daughters to fit into a stereotype because that is what they believe a woman’s role is. This outrage is for the girls who don’t have parents like you looking out for them. The girls who will be raised by television and the internet because they don’t have someone telling them they can be better.

  • JP

    Did their parents buy them shirts that said, “unreasonable.. Check, quick to anger… Check, always looking for a fight.. Check, common sense… (Nope)”? Now it makes sense.

  • SutureSelf

    This is how liberal outrage always operates. The store pulled the T-shirt, but that was not enough. The store apologized, but that was not enough. Now the store must fire the designer, “admit sexism has no place in your stores” and “commit to making positive + non-sexist messaging.” Any time a liberal is offended, the resulting outrage demands total “re-education” followed by bully-enforced approved behavior or absolute personal destruction.

    • World B. Free

      Yeah, they call for firing a guy who designed a stupid T-shirt for kids. But, they give a pass to government officials who spy on American citizens and unfairly target them by denying them tax exempt status based on their political affiliations.

    Math was a source of anxiety for me from elementary school through taking statistics in college. I avoided taking physics because of it. Why? It was one of those things where I either did really well or I really struggled. I did well in everything else.
    There seems to be a cultural belief that we are telling girls to avoid math and science because they are hard and therefore diminishing female representation in those fields. But there are boys who struggle with school too. In fact I wonder if these outraged grrls here would be just as offended if a boy’s shirt listed best subjects as sleeping, eating, or making a mess, and left English or Reading unchecked.
    On the other hand, I don’t think I’d want to advertise my academic weaknesses on a t-shirt nor proclaim my destiny to wear diamonds while still in kindergarten. Just like I’ll never understand adult men who wear tees advertising their alcoholism or women who advertise that they’re “Gold Diggers.”

  • Cyrena

    I’m a conservative career woman with 3 daughters who shop at Children’s Place. I gotta agree with the crazy libs on this one. The shirt is demeaning and creates a culture where it is acceptable to be “bad at math.” Maybe this is one of the reasons our children are falling behind the rest of the world in math, science and technology. I’ll be damned before any of my daughters where something like that. IT’S. NOT. FUNNY.

I don’t like shopping, I suck at dancing, I could never catch on to playing an instrument, and as for math, forget that I still suck at it! IT’S A JOKE PEOPLE!!! Get over it!

    Two questions to consider here. First, who within The Children’s Place green-lighted this t-shirt? Second, (and I’ll admit it’s controversial), haven’t we as a culture been teaching little girls they don’t need to be smart as long as they’re pretty?

    It is just a cute shirt. Get over the over the top need to take offense.
