Forever 21 Tells Girls That Math Is Hard

Just in time for back-to-school shopping, Forever 21 has issued this "Allergic to Algebra" tee! It's the new "Math Class Is Tough" Barbie, only 20 years later! (Progress? What progress?)

But oh the mixed messages Forever 21 is putting out with their "Graphic Tees." Here are a few of their other offerings:

"Allergic to Algebra" + Yale/Harvard? Does not compute.

Hard to believe this shirt was put out by a Korean-American-owned and -operated company. Factor in the company's long history of dodgy business dealings, and it may be time to revoke the Chang family's Asian card.

UPDATE: The "Allergic to Algebra" t-shirt has been removed from Forever 21's site since Gawker posted about it a day ago. No word if it's been removed from stores yet, where it was first spotted by a Reddit user.
