serpent_sky: jjorsett: I think these pressure groups rejoice when they come across something they can be publicly offended at. Without that attention, they're just another bunch of squawky nuisances with a cause that nobody wants to hear about.

I think the companies do it themselves to get in the news. How many groups for people with Downs Syndrome are really paying attention to Kat Von D's makeup line in Sephora? It's a relatively small line - not even a whole shelf, and it's very expensive. It's a super niche line, it doesn't have huge signs in the store...

Basically, you'd have to be extremely into makeup to even know about the existence of this line, never mind the name of a shade of lipstick. I should also note that the color names of lipsticks (and most makeup) are written in very small type, and usually on the bottom of the item. In Sephora, the name would also be on the shelf, but again, in very small type.


I was thinking that they ought to take the stuff they're pulling off the shelves and start hawking it on eBay, assuming that eBay isn't spineless enough to prohibit it. In which case, set up an eCommerce site and sell it directly. Nothing gets the young set more excited than using a product that gets a rise out of The Man, so Kat D may as well tap into that.

CommonName2: ToastTheRabbit: At this point the only people defining "Retard" an offensive term toward "developmentally challenged" children are the retarded parents. The world has moved on. let us have our words stop calling attention to your little snowflakes.
 
/yes I am bitter.
//its a word, words only hurt if they are engraved into pointy things that are then put into you.

So what does calling the parents 'retarded' mean, if not an offensive term used to compare the parents to mentally retarded people?


woah woah woah... lets dial this back a bit!

If it wasn't, it should be.

I wonder what the next word in the cycle will be.  I want to be ahead of the curve in using it as an insult.
