Candie’s Pushes Confusing Abstinence Program


The Candie's Foundation is pushing an abstinence campaign fronted by Bristol Palin that encourages young women to be "sexy" but not have sex. The T-shirts they made with Seventeen magazine read "Be Sexy! It Doesn't Mean You Have to Have Sex!" The message is not only confusing but also only targeted to women, who are, let's not forget, only half the reason teens get pregnant. The benefits of condoms are likewise ignored. Bristol's role is not to be confused with that of Britney Spears, who serves as the brand's retail spokeswoman. [Jezebel]
