Something I’ve noticed about bloggers..
So many of us are ALWAYS offended by SOMETHING.
We’ve had Mental Patient Costumes from ASDA, Books that encourage child abuse from Amazon, T-Shirts mocking Depression from Urban Outfitters and this week the ‘Flirt’ baby gro from GAP.
Whenever stuff like this crops up, I smirk, then watch, and wait.
Then it happens..
The inevitable stream of blog posts from Parent Bloggers waving their stupid ‘I’m Offended!’ placards and getting angry about whatever subject it is. RT’d endlessly with hashtags related to said controversy. I’m left wondering.
Do you REALLY care?
The cynic inside of me really does think that it’s just a clever way of link baiting, or driving traffic to your blog. Who cares what a baby gro says? You don’t have to buy it, and I’m sure other sensible people won’t. It will disappear off the shelves by its own shitness. Don’t boycott Gap because their designers are idiots, boycott them for something like this.
Amazon too sell all sorts of crap, I’m more bothered about THIS than a book written by some head-fucked-hick.
Lets just keep cool like the fonz, and not worry about stuff we wouldn’t ever buy, and get pissed off about something bigger!
