Abercrombie & Fitch "Girlcott"

 Abercrombie & Fitch has made a name for itself with its annual catalogue featuring hot young boys and girls at play, often in highly eroticized ways. This has  gotten the attention of groups like the American Decency Foundation who have organized a boycott of the clothing company. Petitions against the company have also been organized against A&F's marketing of thongs to children. Now the company, which has toned down its image since the rash of protests began, is facing what is being called a "girlcott" for t-shirts bearing the words: "who needs brains when you have these." The campaign begun by a group of high school students in Pennsylvania went national with an appearance on NBC's today show this week. For now, at least, A&F is playing it down as more hysteria. "Our clothing appeals to a wide variety of customers. These particular T-shirts have been very popular among adult women to whom they are marketed," said a company spokesperson in a statement. -- via Newsday
