“I'm too pretty to do homework so my brother has to do it for me” on its online store.
The long-sleeved white cotton shirt was part of the back-to-school line and intended for girls ages 7 to 16. But the online world quickly declared it inappropriate and sexist, and over 1,600 people signed a petition asking the retailer to stop selling the garment.
Forever 21, a Los Angeles-based retailer that's popular with teens, is selling the tee for $12.80. This isn't the retailer's only shirt implying that girls are stupid and uninterested in school. The words “Skool sucks” are boldly written across one shirt and another reads “I love school” on the front and “Not…” on the back. Of course, you won't find any similar T-shirts in Forever 21′s men's line. Can you imagine the retailer selling shirts for boys proudly stating, “I suck at long division”?
