  • Sexualisation of very young girls - US style

    Given the outrage expressed by some contributors to a French coming age film that deals with a young girl on the cusp of puberty, as well as condemnation of the French "perverts" sexualising young girls [the main character is played by a 14 year old actress].

    I wonder what many here think of the sexualisation of very little girls for US Beauty Pageants where the desire for prizes in the form of money, cars, holidays etc, leads parents to turn their toddlers into travesties of Dolly Parton or Mylie Cyrus.

    I agree, infant beauty pageants are disgusting.
    Some may call me foolish, and some may call me odd
    But I'd rather be a fool in the eyes of man
    Than a fool in the eyes of God

      Agreed 100%!

        Yeah, those "beauty pageants" are something I think needs to go too. Not sure why you thought we might think otherwise.

          It's not an American thing, it's a niche event in America, and I would guess most Americans would find it creepy and objectionable. And it's a niche that doesn't only happen in America, but who cares -- DOWN WITH AMERICA!

            You all are spoiling this for Hypatia. She is looking very hard for a way to spread the blame for justification of her acceptance of child porn on NetFlix.

              Child beauty pageants where they dress up children like adults are exploitation and creepy.

                I wasn't following the discussion in the other thread, so I assumed this was just another one of "her" anti-America propaganda threads.

                  She and Starlight should get married.

                    But she is gay - Star can identify as female though...

                        I already have a very long and happy relationship but thank you both for your kind thoughts.

                          Well that is something we can both agree upon. Yet this phenomenon began in the USA.

                          Perhaps, given the low age of consent[10 years in many states] in the US in the past, and the present situation of child brides it helps attract potential future suitors!

                            I'm safe. I don't have NetFlix.

                              It pretty much is, just one created for whataboutism over the outrage on "Cuties"
