    Question Victoria's Secret's Spring Break Ads Anger Parents on the Internet - too much?




    Victoria's Secret's younger brand PINK has sparked outrage among parents on Facebook for supposedly marketing to their teen and tween aged children with a Spring Break themed campaign called "Bright Young Things." The offending items include underwear with the words "Wild" and "Call Me" emblazoned on the crotch or backside region, plus ads like these.

    Stirring the fury, company exec Stuart Burgdoerfer said at a conference over a week ago that "When somebody's 15 or 16 years old, what do they want to be? They want to be older, and they want to be cool like the girl in college, and that's part of the magic of what we do at Pink," Business Insider reports.
    This magic has offended parents of teen and tweens in the US and they have taken to the internet to bring down the corruptors-by-underwear. They started a Facebook campaign called Dear Victoria's Secret: Pull "Bright Young Things", where you can read all the angry comments, and launched a Change.org campaign.

    Still, Victoria's Secret maintains that they are not marketing to anyone who can't choose the "Call Me" thong for themselves. Company spokesperson told the Huffington Post that "In response to questions we recently received, Victoria's Secret PINK is a brand for college-aged women. Despite recent rumors, we have no plans to introduce a collection for younger women. 'Bright Young Things' was a slogan used in conjunction with the college spring break tradition."

    As the parent of a 12yr old there is no way I want my daughter wear that kind of underwear even when she is 15 or 16. Girls have enough to worry about growing up without having bootylicious on their undies.

    No. I just don't take as a personal affront like some of the parents that are going ape shit over this. I've had people criticize me for allowing my 13 year old to wear a bikini. I didn't let her until she showed me she knew how to handle the attention it sometimes causes. But there are people who are sure they know how to parent my daughter better than I can. I saw it as a lesson she needed to learn sooner not later. She's not getting any less attractive and covering her up doesn't make her ugly, so she needed to be able to handle boy's attention.

    And for what it's worth, when I showed my daughter this story, she rolled her eyes and asked why any girl of any age would want to wear something like that. Probably because she understands the type of dipshits it would attract.
