As if teenage girls aren’t body conscious enough, found on sale recently was this card, produced by Hallmark:
The company hurried to apologise for the blunder and by Friday afternoon had posted a statement on its website agreeing that the card was inappropriate, and claiming it had not been published in the last 15 years. They have promised to track down any remaining copies of the card and remove them from sale.
Now I like risqué cards as much as the next person but I genuinely believe that we have to be extremely careful when dealing with impressionable teens and big corporations should definitely behave more responsibly – I wonder if there are any cards out there referencing a teenage boy’s ‘bits’ to even up the score???
