Stop using the word "Pimp" to market items to our children

In Georgia alone over 300 girls under the age of 17 are being sold for sex every month. It's estimated over 300,00 kids in the United States are at risk of being trafficked. They are beaten, drugged, manipulated and murdered by "pimps" In no way should "pimp" be used as a word to describe something good or cool and Hot Topic's marketing focus on our children encouraging them to "Pimp Your Packs" is offensive.
