Utah mom buys all ‘indecent’ T-shirts on display

A Utah mother has given a bizarre example of the common notion that mom can go to any extent when it comes to protect their child.

Judy Cox, mother of 18-year-old son, found a unique way to remove the T-shirts on display that she called “indecent” at a Utah mall when she went there to shop alongwith her son. The upset mother bought every last one of the T-shirts that she found indecent for her child.

Judy Cox and her 18-year-old son were shopping on Saturday at the University Mall in Orem when she saw the T-shirts in the window of a PacSun store. The T-shirts had pictures of scantily dressed models in provocative poses.


According to the sources, Cox complained about the window display to a store manager and asked him to remove them. However, she was told that the T-shirts couldn’t be taken down without approval from the corporate office. Then she got a bizarre idea to make her wish true and she then bought all 19 T-shirts in stock, for a total of $567. However, she has planned to return them later during the end of the chain store’s 60-day return period.

“These shirts clearly cross a boundary that is continually being pushed on our children in images on the Internet, television and when our families shop in the mall,” Cox has reportedly said in an email to The Associated Press.

The story was first reported by The Daily Herald of Provo.
