Nina Shen Rastogi at XXfactor on a new abstinence campaign :

Just $15 plus shipping and handling gets you a tight tank top with the slogan “I’m SEXY enough . . . to keep you waiting” emblazoned across the chest. Waiting until when, exactly—after dinner and a movie? I would never argue that a woman is “asking for it” with her wardrobe choices. But you’ve got to admit, having the word sexy displayed across your breasts in bright pink capital letters . . . well, it encourages people to look at your breasts and think about sex. If you really wanted to make a tank top that encourages teenagers to take it slow, why not make one that says, “HEY, WHY DON’T YOU TRY LOOKING ME IN THE EYES?”
