I want to celebrate the mothers (Mumsnet) and other protestors in the United Kingdom who last week managed to stop huge retailer Primark (138 stores) from selling padded bikini tops for young girls. In 2006 Tesco, supermarket giant removed a pole dancing set (with frilly garder and DVD!) but still carries padded bras for girls. Why can’t girls just be girls – flat chested, funny, and brilliant? Don’t fall victim to the marketers, again. [From The Scotsman, 15 April 2010]
