Abercrombie & Fitch... how can we change the media?

Here's a great Change.org petition on Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Mike Jeffries' comments on making clothes catered exclusively for the "cool, thin, popular kids". This controversy has been all over the news recently and touches at the heart of how influential and detrimental the media and clothing industry can be for young people everywhere. Sign to help create change today!

Weigh in! What do you think about the A&F comments by Mike Jeffries or the responses that have been publicized? How about other clothing or marketing campaigns that you've seen recently? Any ideas on how we can use the media for GOOD rather than evil?
