Oh my god! And to think, there is now a Candies Foundation raising awareness about the consequences of teen pregnancy.

Some people were throwing a fit about this Target advertisement a few weeks ago:

Yeah, the sad part is that I am not offended but I can see why Middle America would be offended by that...

It does look a little awkward, but I'm afraid that it's far from offensive. If people throw fits over something so banal, then they really have to toughen up a bit.

I'm assuming that it has something to do with the fact that she's spreadeagle? Albeit, fully clothed.

I think what's wrong with the Target ad is that the model IS the target.

Oh I thought the problem was that the model's lower body is the target and that the legs are widened a bit.

That Candies ad! I can remember seeing that in YM or something when I was 10. The funny thing is I had no idea what it meant at the time (I don't think I even noticed the TV screen), nevertheless I do remember that ad.
