Another Conversation with Sam, The Best Brother in the World

Me: Sam, so Victoria's Secret...

Sam: Yesss (wide grin)

Me: ... is coming out with a line of undergarments

Sam: I know, I know... for little girls. I saw it on the news.

Me: Yes. For Middle School-age girls.

Sam: I know.

Me: So is it o.k. for your sister to wear a pair of thong underwear that says "Feel Lucky?" on the backside?

Sam: Absolutely not.

Me: You think it's o.k. for Victoria's Secret to be marketing to girls her age?

Sam: No. It's stupid.

Me: Why?

Sam: Because they're not ready for that.

Me: Nature says they are ready. Your bodies can make babies now.

Sam: Just because you can do something doesn't mean you should.

Me: So, is it o.k. for them to market to the sexualization of your sisters? To have boys your age thinking about what their underwear says?

Sam: I already answered that question. ABSOLUTELY NOT.

Me: OK Sam, let's go blog about that.

Sam: Absolutely not.
