Kids are exposed to wayyy too many "sexy" images, airbrushed photographs, and Bratz dolls. It's not good enough if parents to ban this stuff in their homes. In fact, nothing parents do is gonna be good enough.
A columnist informs us that a couple of nine-year-olds were showing off their hot bootays in tight clothes and makeup at the local mall recently near Washington DC. It follows that as a nation, we all need to be really concerned for every young girl. The schools should teach these kids better because their parents obviously aren't gonna. Somehow it's our business as a society that hot young things get something called "corrective education," starting in kindergarten.
Is it just me, or does "corrective education" sound spank-y and jumped-up sick? Am I the only one who gets creeped out that people like to talk about sex with children who aren't theirs, and/or are "concerned" about the healthy sexual development of children? As in, whyyy are you so interested in my kids' sexuality? Are you a pervert or something that you wanna know all about it? Because it grosses me out that some old man might even speak words like "ejaculation" near my kids. It gets me heebie-jeebie grossed out.
It's no-one's business anyway what I teach my kids about sex, or even IF I do anyway. Or what I let my kids wear. So what if I ever choose to let my FOUR-year-old out wearing lipstick and a miniskirt? If she's not turning tricks on the corner it is none of your flipping business. It seems someone is always hating on parents for letting their girls dress too strumpety or constraining them to wearing prairie dresses.
Have you noticed the objectionable clothing is always on a GIRL? Never a boy. I never hear people complaining about boys being too sexy or having their personal identities crushed because their parents made them dress too modestly.
I don't know what point I was making with that last bit, but that's all I had to say. I would like to hear what you think.
