I can easily see how this happened....
Think of all the poor little 2 or 3 year olds whose parents drag them to beauty pageants and make them wear fake teeth, fancy outfits, parade around
like a commodity, etc.
A lot of parents live vicariously through their children.
Were you an "ugly" kid growing up? No worries, you can show off your brand new 3 year old!!!
Never had any talent growing up?! That's okay, you can force your 5 year old into dance lessons!!!
Then of course there is the overdriven parent who demands that their child follow in their footsteps.. no questions asked.
Let's get one thing straight and that is children of this age have absolutely no clue of what they want to be, who they are, or what they're going
to do in their life. When you see 8-10 year olds doing something like this, it's NOT because they conceptualized it.
Grown ups did.
Grown ups wanted to see 8 year olds dance like strippers.
We can debate back and forth prudishness and morals but really this is on a different level than Miley Cyrus.
Miley chose to do what she did... these girls are being made to.
(and don't give me "they want to dance" crap... their brains aren't even fully formed yet)
Edit: Also.. whoever says these girls are "amazing" dancers, you're bonkers. I won't even bother pointing out where they were flawed 'cause
that's not the point... the point is the majority of these moves these little girls were doing is what a rapper would call "twerk it."
to work one's body, as in dancing, especially the rear end
All they did the entire time was shake around. Throw in a few high kicks and a spin... and that's really all they did.
I've passed many a skanky stripper singles for doing less shaking than these little girls are doing.
I just don't understand how as a society we are going to put 7 year olds (what she said in the video) in that kind of outfit, dance them around like
strippers, and then act shocked and appalled that we would somehow have a pedophilia problem ... ???
On the plus side I guess though... these girls are going to have the perfect skill set to pay their way through college. No wonder their parents are
