Mummy Knows Best
I take my life in my hands by wading into the fuss caused by Mumsnet over the "padded bikinis" sold by Primark (now withdrawn by Primark) for under teens.
I take the point about "sexualisation" of kids too early etc. However, is it not up to the parents of the kids themselves to decide whether their sprogs should have a padded bikini or not?
Why should a single issue pressure group dictate what stores can and cannot sell?
I think what really got my goat over the whole issue was seeing the founder of Mumsnet on Newsnight the other day, saying:
"We want organisations to work with us..."
What she actually meant was:
"We want organisations to do as we say, or we will screw their business up."
As noted above, I dare say I have taken my life in my hands by daring to disagree with Mumsnet:)
