Sexy Underwear for Teens

I only have boys, so while I have an opinion on this, wanted to see how the moms of teen girls feel about store's such as Victoria's Secret carrying lines of sexy underwear that are for college aged girls, but appeal to a teen audience.  They were recently targeted by moms for their "Bright Young Things" spring break line.  From Time.com: 

But should anyone be walking around in undies that declare “Dare You,” “Call Me” or “Feeling Lucky?” like some of the missives printed on the manufacturer’s spring-break inventory? That’s certainly a matter of personal taste — for adults. But for young girls, “This speaks to the idea that girls have a fantasy of being raped, that women on some level are asking for it,” says Dana Udall-Weiner, a Santa Fe, N.M., psychologist who works with girls on body image.

Would you let your teen wear suggestive underwear?  Do you think that teen girls have a right to feel confident and sexy, or are they getting the wrong message from retailers?

It wasn't conveniently added, sexting was the conversation in regards to teenage boys.  You brought in the behavior of "all" teenage boys while you were loling about the response to sexting that was the topic of conversation.  You claimed to know what teenage boys were thinking because of dating as a teenager.  It was the topic of conversation, you seem to have lost the thread somewhere along the ways.

I don't want to debate your dh, no...I have said that from the beginning when you brought him into the discussion.  Do you really want to debate your dh in the context of sexting and what the proper response of a teenage boy should have been so you wouldn't be "worried"?  A response you haven't answered btw, despite being asked numerous times.

What questions would you like answered that I haven't answered...fire away, I'm not running away.

PKA...the ONLY time I brought my dh into the convo was to talk about teenage boys, NOT about sexting which you conveniently added. 

Since you don't want to have a debate, I guess you are done then. Everything I have said was clear and none of my questions were answered so that pretty much seals the deal on this thread. 

Have a lovely evening :)

LOL, "frigge" is Old Norse for strumpet basically. I've been giggling about that for awhile.... -------------- Another word for that is "frille," but it is medieval and is not in use in contemporary Danish. One of my brothers has a dry sense of humor and for a long while always referred to my father's second wife as "the Swedish 'frille'," which under the circumstances was rather deserved.

Oh stop trying to be sly. Either say it and back it up, or don't even hint.
