Yesterday's Comment of the Day hit a nerve. The author pointed out that the music at the Stella McCartney sale—a hilariously terrible sounding mash-up of someone shouting "Party Bulls*&t! Party Bullsh%^t, F*^%k Party!" over Survivor's "Eye of the Tiger"—was inappropriate for children. The response: "None of this stuff with kids running around—they hate it and it isn't fair on them when people are looking for clothing and not watching out for small people under foot." Menfolk are similarly uninvited: "As for guys—no way. Women are undressing and don't care that your friend is gay. It makes many women uncomfortable to have men around when they are stripped down. Bringing men with you is only justified when there are changing rooms—which are usually only found when the sales are mixed sex." [Racked Comments]
