Urban Outfitter’s T-Shirts Glorify Teen Drinking: Funny or Irresponsible?

Urban Outfitters is making headlines again for selling controversial tees to teens. This time, their shirts glorify drinking, with slogans like "I Drink You're Cute" and "Misery Loves Alcohol." This would be fine... except that the store is almost always targeted to teenagers, who are still unable to drink. Are people overreacting? Or is Urban Outfitters being irresponsible by selling them?
The clothing chain Urban Outfitters is promoting a controversial new line of t-shirts with slogans such as "I Vote For Vodka" and "USA Drinking Team." A version modeled by a young woman, who appears to be a teen, is emblazoned with blurred letters reading, "I Drink You're Cute." Sadly, what's apparently meant to be a joke isn't far from the truth: alcohol use is associated with increased rates of sexual activity for teens as well as decreased condom use.
