High School Musical Underwear Inappropriate

Does Disney's "Dive In" Offend You?

Nearly all parents of elementary school aged children know about the High School Musical phenomenon. Kids are crazy for the quirky teen sing–song sensation and Disney is cashing in on the paraphernalia surrounding it. Troy, Gabriella and the whole crew have had their likenesses turned into dolls, lunchboxes, backpacks and pajamas. While most of the items seem harmless, one packaged good is raising eyebrows.

Some parents have taken issue with the 3 pack set of undies with "Dive In" printed on the front of the panties. Since the outrage, Disney has pulled the product and issued a statement:

The knickers in question were designed using our High School Musical 2 artwork, which uses the creative theme of a swimming pool, as this is a key part of the film's storyline. . . Unfortunately a genuine oversight was made and the text on this product was used outside the context of the swimming pool.

Do you find the undies offensive?

I guess I trust that Disney wouldn't do that on purpose and I trust that it was a huge oversite, but it makes me uncomfortable to think about my little sister in underwear that says that on the front. It's kind of creppy because it's been pointed, but I would've noticed that before now if she had them and I wouldn't have let her wear them again.

It doesn't offend me at all. I think that its harmless.

It doesn't offend me. Besides who else will see them other than mother and daughter.

I'm not crazy about my daughter wearing undies that say "dive in" but nobody should be seeing them, other her or me.

I guess I'm just really daft because I have no freaking clue how "dive in" could be construed as sexual, especial on a child that would fit into those panties :? But then again I usually am the last one to get a joke.

I'm not offended, but I do agree it's tacky. And macneil, it's not uncommon for a girl at school to be playing on the monkey bars or something and accidentally flash her underwear. Although I just realized yesterday that our school dresscode requires shorts under skirts that are at the knee or above. I remember that it's why I always wore shorts under mine after an incident where I went for a twirl one day and flashed the whole school yard. I've had very few experiences that embarrassed me as much. Anyway, about the underwear. I'd never buy them because they're tacky, but I don't think they've offensive. So I can't vote.

Bad choice of words, but not sexual, and who on earth is looking at little girls' knickers except them and their mothers? A lot of stupidity has been involved at every stage - so it's just a bad choice, but it's not shocking or - in actuality - suggestive.
