"Girlcott" Prevails

The student-led protest against Abercrombie & Fitch has persuaded the retailer to stop selling several objectionable t-shirts. Yesterday A & F issued a statement that reads in part:
In recognition that these t-shirts might be found to be objectionable to many young women, who are among our best customers, we contacted Heather Arnet, Executive Director of the Women & Girls Foundation, and offered to discuss the issue with them. We recognize that the shirts in question, while meant to be humorous, might be troubling to some.
How long do you think it will take for A & F to forget this lesson?

I wonder if you'd define precisely what you mean by "child."
