War On Women? Ads using young girls cursing. Very disturbing. (F word used through out). What kind of mother would do this?!

Mother was asked what she considered child abuse and her answer was "rape." She needs some lengthy therapy, as does her daughter. But, at least that Sugar Boo Boo & her mother are GONE!

Mother was an idiot. Boo boo's mother was dating a convicted child molester.

Looks like its a private business exploiting kids (probably paid them and their parents well) to sell their product. Which is yet another message t-shirt that nobody cares about or looks at.

Shock value to get the message out. Whether people agree with it or not they will still ask 'have you seen it?' and 'what do you think about it?'

I haven't seen the video, but in general I don't think it's that bad for kids to know cuss words. As long as you teach them when it's inappropriate to use them, it should be fine. I wouldn't go far enough to say she's a bad mom.

Ok, I watched it. I guess a group of parents agreed to it. Still doesn't bother me. The girls are old enough to taught when they can and can't cuss, and there's nothing inherently wrong with cussing except that it's rude.

Just to be clear, I agree that it's rude for children to cuss. I just don't think it's that big of a deal, as long as they know not to cuss in public places besides this one time.

They have altered these children's futures by teaching them that they can get paid very well for using obscene language (and statistical lies, though the kids will believe them now). Basically they have stolen a chunk of their innocence several years

Oh, I don't know that many 6 year olds have not heard the word. I had heard the word when I was 6. And it was not from my parents or their friends I assure you. The format of the ad distracts from their purpose though ...

Aside of the fact that I don't agree with this whole war on women thing, little girls swearing is very unnecessary. If they can't find a better way to get your message across, maybe they should leave it to someone else.

And their points (22% wage gap, 1/5 women sexually assaulted) have been thoroughly debunked by liberal media like the Washington Post. Just not true stats.

True stats or not the disturbing thing is that women/girls are still being assaulted. I don't care if it's 1 in a million it's too much. And yes, if they want to be taken seriously their data should be correct
