 Hustler  Made A Toddler T Shirt  Because Sexualizing Toddlers Is A Hilarious Gimmick 4GTZORZ 146x200 jpgI generally don’t like to overreact when it comes to things like this. People have very varied senses of humor. But some things just aren’t funny. Sexualizing toddlers is one of those things. Hustler has a baby t-shirt emblazoned with the phrase, “Barely legal.” Why does this exist?

A Reddit user was shopping for shirts for her four-year-old when she stumbled across a t-shirt on a sale rack. She grabbed it without totally looking at it – which I have done a million times. The Redditor described, “I grabbed it without even registering what the label said, it just looked like a good night shirt for the summer,” the Redditor wrote. “Carried it around for about 5 minutes before I read the text and threw up in my mouth a little.”

Some comments echoed her confusion and disgust, others thought there was “worse out there.” Some linked to an online store called “T-shirts From Hell,” which carried some gems as, Hung Like A 5-Year-Old, and Pedophiles Don’t Fit In. I’m disgusted.

Sexualizing toddlers isn’t funny at all. The Redditor who posted the photo of the shirt also mentioned that there was an actual “Hustler” tag on the shirt. So the “Hustler” brand makes clothes for tots? Something doesn’t seem right about that.

Considering that one in six boys and one in four girls are sexually abused before they turn 18, I just can’t find the humor in these off-putting jokes. And I think it’s pretty reprehensible when adults use their children as fodder for cheap laughs by putting this shit on them. Shame.

Maybe I’ve just evolved into the person that has no sense of humor about some things. I’m totally comfortable with that – and with judging the companies that make this crap and the parents that think it’s okay to put their children in it. Better to get your cheap laughs at your own expense than subject your child to something like this.
