So, there I was, doing the 'black Friday' thing with my wife. We were up at North Countyfair (the indoors mall near the San Diego Animal Park), going here and going there. (And yes, most of the shoppers were women...but I digress).

We ended up at Victoria's Secret. They were having a panty sale. 7 panties for 25$ I think it was. So, there they were, throngs of women, sifting through the panty/thong collection, located in a large bin, just inside the entrance for all to see. Being the red-blooded guy I thought it looked like some kind of lesbian porn movie. I was in heaven.

But then all fun came to an end when, wow, two women started getting into it. Verbal jabs were launched, and why do you ask???

They were "getting" into it because one of the women had her 10 year old girl right there with her trying to decide what kind of thong to buy. The woman who verbally attacked the mother was hispanic, and was in her late 40s/50s I would say. The other woman was white, maybe in her early 30s, very trendy looking, and her daughter was, as I said, 10 years old at best.

The hispanic woman derided this white woman for letting her 10 year old buy thongs in the first place. My wife and I just stood and watched, and of course being the moral compass of society I am, I wanted to listen to the white woman defend her daughter's wearing of thongs at such a young age. It was the classic 'mom' in action. You know what I mean;

"Hey, all the girls wear them now. And IF my daughter wants to wear a thong in the fifth grade, then it is my right to let her wear one!!" Blah blah blah more...blah. (I wonder what her opinion is on tongue piercings and tattoos for her 10 year old.)

The majority of the crowd, sorry to say, because I bet they all had daughters too, came out in support of the white lady and her allowing her daughter to wear thongs. It was a very interesting clash of generations/cultures. And it was free!!!

Now, I don't know about some of you, but I sided with the hispanic woman. Did I support her in front of her attackers? No. That isn't what Black Friday should be about. Besides, I wanted the whole thing to get over so I could fawn over the women checking out each other's panty selections.

I went to my daughter's high-school this week. It happens to be the same high-school that I went to, all those centuries ago. Several of the girls were wearing the jeans that were low, so as to expose their butterfly tattoos and the top of their thongs. I realized that the hispanic woman's battle was a losing cause; she's too late. The white woman was right. This is normal for girls, I guess. And they have to start somewhere. Might as well be mom who is pimping them up at such young ages. I'm sure when the girl turns 11 mom will by her a floor-to-ceiling pole so the girl can practice stripper moves, I mean; why not? That is her right too!

The thongification of America; gotta love it. Thank you Gloria Steinem!!

Mr. Scorpio or Josh or whoever you are. I love to come to work and open my browser and read the crazy things you have to say. I almost spit my coffee out reading about your incident at Victoria's.

I let my 15 year old daughter wear thongs. I only started letting her wear them when she turned 15 last month. I hate to say it but the mexican lady is way out of touch with the youth of today. I understand her worry but like you said its too late. My daughter and I love to compare what we get there so maybe it is a mother and daughter activity like watching baseball or ultimate fighting is for men and their sons.

I sent you another email so I hope you read it. I am sorry if the first one came out of left field.

I see both POVs but have to side with the younger white woman over the older hispanic woman. Last time I checked, this was still America and it's not illegal to go thong shoping with your daughter no matter how young she is.

When you are a single mother like I am it is very important that you stay in touch with your daughter. When we go shopping together at Victoria's or Clairs I think its no different than when dads take their sons to ball games and oggle the cheerleaders and cuss and all that. That is my opinion at least.


RobertScorpio Dec. 4, 2009 @ 6:08 a.m.

You almost have a good point, but the difference is? I don't think many fathers take their 10 year old sons to football games to oggle the cheerleaders and cuss. I may be wrong, maybe they do, but I've never seen it.


magicsfive Dec. 4, 2009 @ 7:30 a.m.

ok well i don't see why people actually think robert and josh are the same person...seriously. and thongs are (i guess) the in thing but for a 10 year old??? hell no. and lastly, thongs look good, mmmm yes they do, but they are very unhealthy to wear. think about it. shudders

The nightmare teenager girl;

  1. Wears a thong which you can see ride above her jeans.
  2. Tattoo seen right above the thong line.
  3. Tongue piercings.
  4. Lip piercings.
  5. Nose piercings.

When I was walking through my daughter's high school, I saw many teenagers who would qualify by having all FIVE of those things I just listed. I can accept it because, hey, its high-school.

But last year, when my daughter was in junior-high? Many of the 6-7-8 graders would have qualified as well. Are we raising a generation of sluts? Ho's? Hoochi-mamas?

How can you expect those young boys, who are trying to further their education, to concentrate when the girls are walking around like that. How can you expect the teachers to not offer these girls grades for sex? I mean, gee, the girls are putting it out there.

Oh yeah, I forgot. Its the girl's right to dress like that. This is America for gosh sake! It was like this when you were growing up too Mr. Scorpio!!! Um, not it wasn't. Oh, being the perv I am? I wish it had been. But when I was in high-school it was girls in dolphin shorts..(cue the drooling machine) and the feather cut!

But now adays? I think instead of offering home-ecconomics for these girls they should just offer Pole-dancing as an elective, since this is where most of them will probably end up, with academic scores as down as they are.

Japan may have the better students; we got the better 'hos'. Then again? I am picturing a Japanese girl in a catholic schoolgirl skirt...oh...yeahhhhhhhhhh...uh huhhhhh...mmmmmm..mmmmm...ohhhhhh...

As Don King would say, "Only in America!!!"

My daughter only has two of the five things you have listed. At least she is normal in the great Robert Scorpio's eyes. What do I win or should I send you another Email and tell you what I want.


PistolPete Dec. 4, 2009 @ 12:40 p.m.

Girls are growing up to be cock teasers or faux ho's as I like to call 'em. I'm not raising teenage girls or find them sexually appealing so I don't give a s*** one way or the other. Chances are, they'll be too scared to open their legs but they'll be some who will find themselves 16 or 17 with baby on hip askin' me, the taxpayer, for a welfare handout. You take the good with the bad in America.

Thongification and Stick It up Your Butt? Is this an Aztec-theater double feature?
