This morning, a backlash erupted in the blogosphere over this JC Penney top for girls age 7-16 which is emblazoned with the slogan: "I'm too pretty to do homework so my brother has to do it for me." The description alongside the item read: "Who has time for homework when there's a new Justin Bieber album out? She'll love this tee that's just as cute and sassy as she is."

Wow, sexist much? The shirt has since been pulled from the JCP website.
