It’s always been a tough message to sell, but the abstinence movement has gotten seriously hipper since I was a teenager. I got nuns and priests telling me I’d go to hell. Now, there are rock concerts and jewelry. This being America, there’s money to be made, and Kmart is capitalizing with a line of “True Love Waits” clothing—which is apparently a branded utility, because the baggy-sweatpants look can’t hurt the effort. The sweats come in blue, yellow and no effing way gray. Hat tip: Ana Marie Cox.
