Kmart Australia has pulled a children’s bride costume from its shelves after a Melbourne mom launched a petition calling the costume “beyond inappropriate.”

The $6 costume, which included a white wedding gown and headband with veil for children between the ages of 4 and 6, was stripped from sale on Tuesday afternoon just two days after Shannon B launched the petition on Change.org.

So imagination is now a bad thing. If you see a six year old girl in a wedding dress and see things, you are the friken problem, not the little girl. Just like the flap about Moana costumes. Kids want to pretend to be adults. You could find a way to be offended at literally any costume. Try me.

Is there nothing - at all - that someone won't bitch about? And get their way???

One crazy woman with 124 signatures, and Kmart caved. How does that happen? Because I could find something stupid to bitch about, get 124 people to sign my petition, and I would be laughed out of the internet. I don't understand how these people get a major corporation to knuckle under to them.

I could see removing it if the picture they used was for real, a little preggo. But they used that photo for dramatic effect. Nothing wrong with a bride outfit. I wish vendors/stores would start pushing back on the minority complaints.

I should clarify... not complaints about minorities, but complaints that are few in number, in the minority.

Nope. Everyone can be offended by anything today. A friend posted this "child" costume and I have to wonder where the outrage is over it.

Don't all little girls dream about growing up and getting married one day? Now if the Aussies were putting these costumes on sheep I guess this nut would be fine with that.

Maybe they can re-market them in Ross, Marshalls and Dollar General stores as "Black-O-Lanterns!
