The solution is simple...parents and guardians take responsibility for their children. We all know businesses are evil and such but where did they get the idea to make these sexy outfits for a 9 year old? Probably from all the parent's letting their girls dress sexy on a day-to-day manner.

My wife and I used to run a volleyball camp on my old base. My team was 10-12 year old. Adorable gals, good volleyball clinics and games, juice boxes...we had it all. We loved doing this.

Anywho...one day a gril (11) shows up ready to play...let's describe the monstrousity of an outfit she had...keep the 11 in mind if you can stomach it

Gym shoes. Hip hugging, low riding jeans. Belly shirt (low cut on top). Tanned to all get out (in the dead of winter) and a belly chain taht rested on her back side...wanna guess what it said? PLAYBOY

So now I don't blame the businesses here I put responsibility where it belongs...the environment...

Now I am not an idiot...I know our celebrities like Miley are dressing like tramps but parents who explain this behavior and what is expected will probably fare better

IMO of course

Seen any children dance routines lately? Why are they doing "bump & grind"?

When my granddaughter was 8 -- she was in a dance class. Fortunately - this teacher did not have them do "bump & grind" - - but they did have bare midriff tops. All except my granddaughter. Her mom insisted on her midriff being fully covered.

But how sad - - that she was the only one.

And my daughter is not a religious conservative. She grew up pretty free on the California beaches.

She just values - - Age Appropriate.

I think the sexualisation of children has been gradually on the rise for many years. You can at least trace it back to cheerleading. It's part of the sick NWO agenda. In the UK a couple of years back there was a lace panties and bra set for toddlers. Luckily there was a massive stink about it and as far as I know it got withdrawn.

You can't just blame the satanic/occult elites for this though. You have to ask yourself what the hell are these parents thinking buying this stuff.

You think that's bad.

There are thong bikini swim suits for toddlers. And they haven't been withdrawn.

Another thing that I think doesnt help with this image, 9 year olds do NOT need fake nails, hair dye, make-up, fake tans or eye brow waxing! My GOD the ages of some girls I have seen getting these things done amazes me. I was playing with Barbie at 9, not worrying about my tan or nails for heavens sake. I am so glad I am not a kid in this day and age.


I have a friend that runs a "beauty salon." They offer maicures, pedicures, tanning, and hairstyling. She told me that nearly 1/3 of her customers are kids under 16 coming in with their mothers.

I remember when I was 15 (barely more than a decade ago) the girls in my school didn't really get in to tanning and mani-pedis. It seems weird to look at how far things have gone in such a short time. I don't remember more than a handfull of girls tanning untill prom time. Manicures definitely weren't common and baby doll shirts were just making in roads.

I think it is time to read Neal Postman's "The Disapearance of Childhood" again. I can not remember if it had any advice for stemming the tide.

Hollywood and the media are responsible for this. Also the handlers of young star. Remember the jokes about when the Olsen twins would be "legal"? Watch this, check out about the 1 minute mark. It says it all about this exploitation:

So you don't think the parents have anything to do with?

Yes I do. I also said the "handlers". That usually means the parents. Watch Miley. She's going to make Lindsey Lohan look like a saint when she comes of age. Shame on Billy Ray.

Nothing new here.

Progressivism has destroyed the stratification of age appropriate behavior. It's all a mess. children, kids, teens, young adults, adults, mature adults and so on.

No one has any idea of how to act.

Children are acting like idiots, morons, sluts and whores because that's what their favorite media personalities act like.

Teen pregnancy (and abortions) are in the millions every year. I guess you're really not cool anymore until you've snuffed out a fetus or two.

Parents don't have the guts to be parents so they try to be friends with their kids which just puts the kids in the drivers seats.

Kids think they have it all figured out at the age of twelve and society (the media as well) tells them that they don't have to listen to their parents because their parents are ancient cretins who just don't 'get it.'

Adults are now acting like kids because everybody knows that you can't possibly like old people.

I keep seeing 50 year old women walking down the street wearing pants with the word 'pink' written across their butts.

I guess that has the same purpose as tramp stamps.

Next thing you know, Mattel will be making street corner barbie and Bratz will be marketing a line of buttless leather chaps for toddlers.

It's funny I was watching South Park last night and one of my favorite episodes, I think it's called Purity Rings was on, and it touches on this very concept.

In the episode, the Jonas Brothers, must wear purity rings so that Disney could rationalize selling sex to young girls by having the boys sing sexual related songs and make provacative gestures while on stage.

I think you are right OP, there is a really big disconnection between a "Halloween" costume and a slutty neglige that should not even be sold at Victoria Secret.

I think that the selling of sex has gotten more and more prevelant and has targeted younger audiences.

If you've seen Miley Cyrus lately perfoming with low cut booty shorts and ridiculous tops, you can see how the record companies and TV corporations encourage the "young & sexy" look for our daughters.

It also adversly affects our sons as well. They get this idea that all women should look that way and to poke fun at those that don't.

Good morals and values are in a decline folks and it's up to us as parents to do everything we can do educate our children about how to identify and protect themselves from this sort of blatant mental abuse.

Halloween is supposed to be scary when you're a kid. Although I'm not really surprised at this, to be honest.

Regardless, when I have kids, my little girl/boy will be dressed up as a ghost, a corpse, or maybe pinhead.... but not a slutty little-bo-peep.

Well... I might consider Spider-Man, or a princess, complete with gown... maybe

I am glad i never liked females, but your right females, are going out too young, there parents will never know what they get upto.
I am glad i will never bring someone into this world.

That's the spirit. It's good to see a person so proud of being gay.
Just stay that way and you will avoid messing up the lives of the women of this world.

Some of the halloween costumes at my local sweetie store were a disgrace

Apparently the owner wants to turn it into a porn shop
