It's well documented that cigarettes lead to lung cancer.... Yet people still smoke. They know what's going to happen to them, and yet they still support the companies and the idea of lung cancer. It's all about supply and demand, such products will be made if there is enough interest.

Same goes for the lingerie, if teenage girls want to buy it, they will.

As for the 'willingly accept' part, blame the people that willingly accept this crap.... If enough people don't buy VS products, they would eventually shut down and other companies would know their stuff won't sell either.

Companies will make things, just ignore them and don't give them any business if you feel strongly about it.

In other words, you have a choice.


So are you ok when you see an 11 year old smoking? Should we sell cigarettes to under agers? We currently don't, and there are reasons for that...they're kids.

Yes, as an adult, I have a choice...you're right.

Am I okay with it? Yes and no. First of all, it's that person's business, and second, yes it is morally wrong.

As individuals, we should avoid such cases and educate the children instead of targeting stores that sell 'bad' things.

If there are enough people boycotting, sooner or later, the business will be gone. Simple as that.

We enforce morality vis a vis exposing children to certain materials such as municipalities, using powers derived from the provinces, can regulate the pornography industry (magazines for example) by prescribing how such material is to be displayed in stores and such things as film ratings and classifications..
To err is human - but to really screw up you need a computer.

Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done and why. Then do it.
