You Wish You Could Ski Like A Girl!

BAGT_Ski_v2
We have many shirts, many colors -- lots of ideas and a new color for the ski shirt (finally)!

 Ski Like A Girl was our first shirt -- it's still one of our most popular.  We are giving it a new color and a little bit of a new design (this will be a long sleeve shirt.)     

We love our designer and the work he does -- so thanks to Ken Murphy Murphy Empire for all his help.   I can't help but wonder, where do those ideas come from?

When ware ready to debut our new shirt --  it will come with free shipping.  So stay tuned.

I heard geese this morning honking their way to warmer climates.  Ski and boarding season can't be far away.  Sugarloaf will be hosting Homecoming soon.  Summer -- just flew by, I wish it could have lasted a few weeks longer.

Which did we pick?  The off-white!  It has a classic look and it got the most votes.

So, Get out there and Ski Like A Girl!

STOP JC Penney and Forever 21

 

 

 

 

 

 Hello -- are you listening out there!  What an outrage!  I just pulled this article off the internet, but I must say I cannot believe in this day and age people are still saying these types of things to young girls.

 

 

 

Stop JC Penney and Forever 21 from putting more sexist clothing on their shelves.

Girls are Allergic to Algebra?

 

Clicking here will automatically add your name to this petition to JC Penney and Forever 21:

"Clearly something is broken if your companies are marketing shirts to young girls that read "Allergic to Algebra" or "I'm too pretty to do homework." You pulled those two products from the shelves after outraged customers complained, but you need to go further and make a public commitment to improve your review process and ensure you never again stock clothing for girls featuring sexist and demeaning slogans."

Automatically add your name:

 

Dear Friend,

Just yesterday, retailer Forever 21 began offering for sale a shirt for girls emblazoned with the slogan "Allergic to Algebra." And a few weeks ago, JC Penney offered similar girls' shirts with the slogan "I'm too pretty to do homework, so my brother has to do it for me."

Sexist slogans like these play into and perpetuate the offensive stereotypes that women are innately bad at math or that being pretty is more important than being smart. By selling these shirts, the stores give their implicit support of these efforts to convince girls that, to be stylish and fit in, they must be bad at math or less interested than boys in academic achievement.

After backlash from outraged customers, the both shirts were pulled from the shelves and online stores.1 But how did the sexist shirts get there in the first place? Clearly, something is totally broken within the corporate culture of these retailers. There is no effective review process for the clothing sold at JC Penney and Forever 21 if offensive clothing like this that demeans young girls makes it to their shelves.

Tell the CEOs of JC Penney and Forever 21 that you will hold them accountable for the clothing that is sold in their stores. Demand they make a public commitment to keep sexist clothing for girls from making it to their shelves in the future. Click here to automatically sign the petition.

These retailers are clearly sensitive to public pressure, as evidenced by how quickly they pulled the shirts after a public backlash arose. But that's not good enough. We must pressure JC Penney and Forever 21 to make the changes necessary at corporate headquarters to ensure sexist shirts like these never even come close to making it to the shelves.

Dozens, perhaps hundreds, of people at JC Penney and Forever 21 encountered these shirts before they were made available to the public. Why didn't employees of these retailers at some point say, "Hey, are we really going to sell shirts to young girls that say 'I'm too pretty for homework' or 'Allergic to Algebra'?"

It's obvious that these shirts perpetuate offensive and harmful stereotypes about the ability of women to achieve academically relative to men. Of course, many studies have confirmed that these stereotypes are baseless, and that women's minds are just as well suited to performing academically as men's.

But, because popular culture is so powerful, many women and girls will conform to negative stereotypes of what a woman is supposed to achieve if they are continually reinforced. Stores like JC Penney and Forever 21 help shape that culture through the clothing they sell.

It's clear that these stores listen to public pressure, but we must pressure JC Penney and Forever 21 to take concrete steps to ensure that clothing this sexist never even comes close to making it onto shelves again.

Tell the CEOs of JC Penney and Forever 21 that you will hold them accountable for the clothing that is sold in their stores. Demand they make a public commitment to keep sexist clothing for girls from making it to their shelves in the future. Click here to automatically sign the petition.

Thank you for standing up to sexism.
