Children's Place Pulls Controversial Shirt

A controversial shirt is now off store shelves after a lot of shoppers called it sexist.

Children's Place pulled the shirts after thousands of outraged customers complained. The shirt shows a checklist citing girls’ best subjects as shopping, music and dancing, but not math, because "Nobody's Perfect."

There are several Children's Place locations in the Bay Area, including Pleasanton, Milpitas and San Jose.

The Secaucus, N.J.-based retailer tweeted Monday evening that it was pulling the shirt from stores and apologized "to anyone we may have offended."

In recent days, the company's Facebook page was swamped with criticism of the shirt, saying it perpetuated a harmful stereotype that girls are bad at math. Among those who complained were women in math and science.
