Piercing A Baby’s Ears Is Not Child Abuse

I am a mother of sons. I do not have any daughters. I recognize that it is a cultural norm to pierce women’s ears, especially young girls as infants. If I had a daughter, you better believe I would carry her right into Claire’s Boutique and pop a few shiny gold studs into her baby ears. I’ve…

Abercrombie & Fitch’s awful financials make me optimistic about the future. For a long time they were a dominant force in the teen market, but Abercrombie & Fitch’s legacy of discrimination and elitism has made it basically untouchable to today’s cool kids.
