So basically the father abused her repeatedly and most likely killed her?
makes sense seeing as the kid was found in the basement.

Theres no way to stop it unless you make it illegal, soo either get on with it and shut up or put your case to the courts.

It was kind of ironic you mentioned your avatar thingy.....
You may not think you are directly encouraging children to be "sex icons", but the reality is that slutty is what we idolize -- As your avatar itself points out. The images that we consider 'attractive' in todays' society are affecting children who think they must look like THAT to be 'pretty'.
It's true, the images we idolize on a daily basis are not going unseen by little girls that are trying to find their place and acceptance in this world.
Just something else to think about.....

its really bad in the uk , lots of girls in their primary years and going into secondary school are dressing like they are older , its wrong , and the media and magazines and pop stars like brittney spears and the rest are to blame for makign children think they need to look dress and act like this to be popular , which is really important to kids !
however its really a disgrace

To come up with a solution, you have to identify the root of the problem.
Who is masterminding the media directed at our young girls?
God forbid anyone complains and causes an uproar..their stocks might go down....
I'm gonna say MTV all the way! I grew up with the other two, although I blame Disney and their ideal of fairy tale relationships..lol
MTV when I waas growing up is NOTHING like it is now they should be ashamed. They really need to change their name too...When do they ever show music?

Goota think, even though things are meant for kids, who made them? Who drew this comic? Who created this character? Who wrote this Spongebob episode? Not kids alrighty
Luckily for that I think, because I think Spongebob is funny
All the really old childrens shows arent funny, kids just like them because theyre violent, mouse outwits cat and beats him over the head with frying pan... children laugh at violence not clever things. Thats why the Simpsons did Itchy and Scratchy as social commentary that violence is 'vilified' to kids.
I think the person who comes up with the idea is to blame and in some ways parents. If parents dont want their kids around stuff like this then they dont have to buy it or let them watch it, but many parents from what I see now-a-days dont seem to pay too much attention to what their kids are really doing.
Really? You dont see a 9 year old wearing lip stick and eye
shadow in a dress thats length will be illegal in most schools?
