Kids Must Be Kids
Abercrombie & Fitche is selling padded bikinis for pre-teen girls! No Way! What are they thinking? Is everything about nubility and those hormone-infused frenzies of the second and third decades of life? Let little girls be little girls. God knows they'll be big girls for a whole lot longer, let them cherish it while they can. Madeleine L'Engle, child author and one time head librarian at the Episcopal Library said very wisely once, "The church's best theologians are 8 years old." Let's not silence the precious voices of the wee wise ones by hurring them into psycological puberty before their time! I'm downright offended--if you feel like me stop buying anything from Abercrombie & Fitche for the next 6 months. They're doing it for the dollars, so let's make it not worth it.
