Hey, People! Leave our kids alone!

18 August 2011 6 comments

It’s a crazy world we live in. And seemingly getting crazier each year.

From America, we had the dual inventions of television and fast-food. Used separately, in moderation, both are pleasant to have.

Put them together, though, and we have a guaranteed pathway to obesity.

Not content with keeping artery-clogging, weight-gaining fast-food to themselves, our American cuzzies were generous enough to share their KFC, McDonalds, Burger King, Dominos, etc with the rest of the world. “Share the love”, as they say.

And the calories that go with it.

Keep the kids in front of the TV – another “gift” from American culture – with cartoons and other children’s programmes, and advertisers have a ready-made audience to market toys, branded clothes and shoes… and more fast food. (Just in case the little Darlings didn’t get the ‘message’ first time around.)

Kids getting overweight?

Not a problem.

Because our American mates have the solution;

Yep – a diet guide for six year olds  “Maggie”, courtesy  of Hawaii-based author Paul Kramer. Because Mr Kramer is obviously so concerned about obesity in his country that he decided to do something about it.

Exercise? Less junk food? More healthy eating? Nope. No profit there, folks.

Diet book? Plenty of profit!! Especially aimed at young children who are getting more and more body-conscious thanks to adults like… Mr Kramer.

And once  little six year old ‘Maggie’  loses those “ugly kilos” (after buying his book, of course), we can enter her here;

Tart her up in sexy gear; teach her a raunchy little Las Vegas burlesque dance-routine; and she can be on her way to a career in…

modelling!

Just like ten year old Thylane Lena-Rose Blondeau,

Yes, folks; legitamised paedophilia! Never mind the Raincoat Brigade – that old “Stranger Danger” is so “20th Century“. The 21st Century does it with ‘style’ and with glamour, fame,  and big bucks in mind. There’s money to be made in six year old little ‘Maggie’ or ten year-old Thylane.

Next in line; sexy lingerie for children?!

And don’t let the critics interfere with the rights of parents to prostitute – er, I mean, to “let their kids have a good time”. These critics are just “wowsers, right? Why shouldn’t six and ten year olds do sexy little burlesque dances on stage? As the mother of six-year old Eden Wood said about her   daughter,

“If you see sex  when you look at my six year old child, that’s not her fault. It’s a sign  of somebody being sick in the mind'”

Yeah… riiiight, Ms Wood, just because you dress your daughter in sexually-provacative, adult-style clothing, and then make her do a “bump’n’grind” routine on a public stage – that makes it everyone elses’ fault when they are repulsed by the objectification of your own child.

You know people, Western society is highly sexualised as it is. Whether it’s advertising; movies; tv programmes; or music videos (which are practically soft-porn these days), society uses sex for everything. And then we scratch our heads in bewilderment that kids are more sexually aware these days and  teenage pregnancies have skyrocketed in the last few decades. Gee, you don’t think there might be a link?!

Now some groups in society are pushing at the last, previously off-limits, boundary: under age little girls.

They’ve sexualised and abused the bodies of mature women. Then teenagers. And now they’re after the bodies af girls 10 years old and younger.

We put people into prison for treating children this way.

But no longer. Because now there is  money to be made here, and for some parents, that makes it ok.

Money. It makes everything seem ok.

Including paedophilia, it seems.

Sign of a sick society?

As I wrote in my previous piece, “The socially “acceptable” face of paedophilia“, society appears to becoming more and more tolerant of legitimised forms of exploitation – often sexualised – of our young children.At the very least, business interests – with complicit parents – are pushing boundaries of social norms.

This latest example should make our stomachs churn…

Australia’s News Ltd reported yesterday that the images of Thylane Lena-Rose Blondeau have child advocacy campaigners furious that a girl so young should be displaying the sexual allure of an individual twice her age.

The French girl – who has graced the cover of Vogue Enfants and is tipped as the next big thing on the fashion scene – has already been compared with 60s siren Brigitte Bardot, who appeared in Elle at the age of 15.

But News Ltd reported that these latest images, complete with heavy make-up and stiletto heels, which appear in French magazine Cadeaux, “brought the issue to a head”.

News Ltd said they followed a British Government move to enforce restrictions on the sexualisation of children in the media and sexual content in advertising.

A spokeswoman for the UK Mothers’ Union was reported as saying the organisation had “grave concerns about the modelling agency who represent Blondeau, which clearly does not know if it represents a child or an adult. Photo shoots requiring her, a 10-year-old-girl, to dress in full make-up, teetering heels and a dress with a cleavage cut to the waist across her pre-pubescent body deny Blondeau the right to be the child she is”, the spokeswoman said.

A British survey recently revealed 88 per cent of parents agreed that children were under pressure to grow up too quickly, with 58 per cent blaming celebrity culture. Dr Emma Gray, a consultant clinical psychologist, said the pictures were the antithesis of what childhood in our society should be.

“If children are to develop into happy, grounded and psychologically balanced people, their childhood needs to be spent appropriately preparing for the demands of the adult world,” she said.

The questions begs to be asked; Why on Earth would anyone think that displaying a ten year old girl in a sexualised setting is appropriate?

What is the thinking of parents who would condone their children to be used in such a manner?

And the question that should disturb us the most; what is next? Partial nudity? Full nudity?

This is not about being a prude – I’m fairly broad-minded when it comes to consenting adults expressing their own sexuality and meeting their needs.

But children are neither adults, nor capable of giving informed consent. This is child exploitation that is not much different to child sweat shops in Third World/Developing countries; child pornography; or trafficking in under-age sex slaves.

Enough is enough. This has no place in a civilised society.
