Disturbing Panties Should Have Never Been Sold in Kid’s Store (VIDEO)

crotchless panties for teensSpeaking as someone who was once a teenager, and an obnoxious one at that, I can firmly attest to the fact that teens aren't the smartest demographic in the world. In addition to being filled with raging, angsty hormones that make them say and do stupid things, they're gullible enough to spend their money on anything and everything that's advertised to them -- be it a pair of $200 furry boots, 50 packs of Big League Chew, or a pair of crotchless panties. Oh, yes, I just wrote crotchless panties.

A store in Colorado called Kids N Teen recently caught heat for selling leopard-print crotchless thongs. They pulled them from their shelves after a concerned, disgusted (normal) mother, Erin French, complained.

I'm thinking that's probably the smartest move Kids N Teen has ever made.

From what French describes -- and from what Kids N Teen looks like in the video -- the store caters to small children and young teenagers. There are stuffed animals throughout the shop, and no signs of risque Forever 21-esque clothes anywhere. Think more Children's Place than Hot Topic. Which makes the whole crotchless underwear thing even more deplorable.

French noticed the undergarments when she stopped into the store with her daughter and son. She said, "I was mortified. My first initial response was, 'Am I really seeing that?'" When she complained to the owner of the store, the owner defended herself by saying that 25 percent of her merchandise is for teens. Ohhhh, so that makes it okay then. Crotchless panties should totally be sold to gullible, impressionable teenagers.

Not. Crotchless panties totally shouldn't be sold to gullible, impressionable teenagers. (Thirteen is considered "teenager," for God's sake!) And they especially shouldn't be sold to teens in a place where little non-teen kids are. It's wrong, it's revolting, and it pretty much encourages irresponsible sex. Fail.

Do you think this is wrong?

What were they thinking selling crotchless panties?

how did that shop owner ever even order that for her store to carry?  That thought alone really bothers me.

I can't even find crotchless panties in my local lingerie stores!  WTH?!  And in a store with "KIDS" in the name, sexy little things shouldn't be offered, even if some shoppers are teens.  That's like selling a jelly thong or candy bra in a candy store b/c hey, sometimes parents buy the candy, too!


On a side note, I decided against ever wearing crotchless panties for my husband after hearing Larry the Cable Guy on grandpa's TV:


Woman sexily poses with crotchless panties and asks "You want some of this?"
Man scream "HELL NO!  Just look what it did to your britches!"

 Yeah, that's not even appropriate for teenagers. Come on!

Lmao I'm sorry I can't help it. That is amazing. Hopefully it was just an honest mistake.

Wow bad move and bad pr. The only thing that would make sense is if they were actually making a hell of a ton of money selling them. It doesnt excuse them but its their best reason.

Blech.  My first thought was the "surprise!" Mother Nature visit.  This item would possibly be funny for a BRIDAL SHOWER gag gift, but not for kids/teens.
