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?

Well, since it was in a conversation where Thardy suggested that we should have called the police and reported the girls who sexted my son, I kind of thought it was clear that we were speaking of his response.

<p>What does knowing my dh as a teen, PKA,  have to do with him sexting which you clearly stated? </p>

Um, that was the context of the debate, you saying how you knew all teenage boys should respond to sexting and would be worried if they responded in the way that bord posted, which was totally appropriate.  You said that you knew all about teenage boys, their hormones and how they should react to sexting by using your dh as an example.  I don't know why you did what you did, but I have edited my comments saying that I don't really want to discuss this subject in depth because...I really don't want to discuss this subject anymore.

Frankly I'm appalled by your comments on the entire subject of sexting and that you brought your dh into the discussion.  I think you need to read the posts, you seem to have large gaps in factual knowledge of the discussion.

"Yeah, and then she mentioned MY husband." ----- Actually she said that she didn't want to "go there" in regards to your husband. YOU are the one that brought your husband into the debate, and are now trying to twist it. You can become a contortionist, it won't change the FACT that YOU brought your husband in, not anyone else.

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

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.
