Something I Don't Understand cont.

A while back I wrote this post about how I don't understand why people use the Playboy bunny on their clothes and on products - especially how I see in Hungary that people put Playboy bunny clothes on their pre-teen girls.
Today, I had a case in point.
We've had an English camp this week for school aged kids, and today one of the little girls - 10 years old - came to camp with a Hooters shirt on.
A few thoughts on this:
  • This little girl probably has no idea what this shirt means.
  • Her parents probably know full well what it means, and sent her out to church camp today wearing a Hooters shirt, thinking it was all well and good - perhaps even cute - to see their little girl wearing a shirt like this.
  • Do they hope that one day she will grow up to be a Hooters girl? What a great ambition to have for your little girl: that some day she will grow up and have men ogle at her while she brings them beer and hot wings while wearing skimpy clothes...
  • How wrong is it that Hooters even makes clothing in sizes for little girls?
  • Doesn't this encourage pedophilia somehow?
Needless to say, I was disturbed...

    I think even the parents have no idea what Hooters is. I think that they surely don´t want them to grow up as a Hooters-girl, but probably they are not against it.
    Is there even a Hooters restaurant in Hungary?

  2. I'm almost sure that there isn't a Hooters restaurant in Hungary.
    I hope that the parents don't know what the shirt means. At least then it would just be an embarrassing mistake...

    How wonderful that this child was able to participate in your English camp and hear the Word of God. I pray that she will come to accept God's love for her and realize that she is valued by God.

  5. Nick, what I saw at the pool when we were there this week was that a girl aged 16 had a Playboy bunny tattoo on her back. CRAZY! I don't see the point...I'm sure you have crazy people out there too, maybe in a different way. But still, I'm wondering where this girl left her brain when she got the tattoo. It's not a T-shirt, or paint, you can't just wash it with water.
