A couple weeks ago, JCPenney found itself in serious and very public hot water when it was discovered the retailer was selling a t-shirt that read “I’m too pretty to do homework” to little girls.

JCPenney pulled the shirt from its site, but now it looks like Forever 21 is filling the void with a shirt that announces the female wearer is “allergic to algebra,” which critics say perpetuates the stereotype that women are bad at math.

Why don’t these tops ever say girls are too busy acing their SATs to shop at stores determined to undermine their intelligence?
