Well this is in my opinion absolutely beyond the pale, how on earth is this being filmed, encouraged and rewarded in both the Media & Culture and
society at large?
a preview of the latest episode of Toddlers and Tiaras that sees a three-year-old dressed as a prostitute.
Now when I saw this I really had to take a double look, and am appalled really am.
I do warn you but this is going to be broadcast across networks and the world, it is judged, it is a "competition" people, children, babies even
passively watching TV will aspire to this image.
And if you think this is not true please just consider how big an industry advertising is, and what does it use Images, glamour, fame, clothes, SEX
YOU DO MAKE CHOICES in the supermarket, unconsciously when your hand reaches for that product, as apposed to the identical one next to it, even if
cheaper! period, and to think our children, and even other families/mothers are not going to be affected by this is very naive imho.
The TLC programme shows the child's mother dressing young Paisley up in a costume to mimic Julia Roberts' character from the 1990 hit movie,
I again warn you the last one did I admit bring a tear to my eye, this is soo wrong, and she is so unaware and innocent.
I just cannot understand how this is paid for and being shown on TV?
Now this just gets worse, consider what she is thinking whilst she is paraded as a piece of meat, my god at that age even the separate ID/EGO is not
formed, she is totally in theta or very very easily programmed with beliefs and values, at that age children are LEARNING MACHINES, what is she and
all of similar ages watching learning?
On the bloody Learning channel!
Yes they are certainly learning but we all know what!
Now how is this child rewarded, what is the reaction by the adults judging her?
Im not sure which pic is worst the previous or this one?
Daily mail for
for original Story
You Judge the judges I know I certainly have! and many of the audience.
Now what I don't understand is how is legal?
And as is so why?
In the UK some people have been convicted for holding lots and lots of images of children.
We all see them in the news, on the "sex offenders register" for life and such like. However what I discovered beyond those partial snippets ive
caught before, on TV or radio of such people being convicted has shocked me.
Many of those convicted some quick searches concluded were often holding lots of Level 1 and Level 2 images on the
used to rate their seriousness.
Level 1 is:
Indicative Non-erotic and non-sexualised pictures showing children in their underwear, swimming costumes from either commercial sources or family
albums. Pictures of children playing in normal settings, in which the context or organisation of pictures by the collector indicates
Level 2 is:
Pictures of naked or semi-naked children in appropriate nudist settings, and from legitimate sources.
Both of which if someone holds them esp lots do mean I am all for investigating that person etc, but if just one or two I suppose the person could
still end up on the "register" and seen as an sex offender for life!
However there was no sexual images present and no sex took place.
Now that is another debate, and I am not in any way trying to say such people shouldn't be investigated or helped whatever.... I bring it up as what
is being done already with legislation every week in the UK as regarding images of children, and as an comparison to the above.
Looking at the above images they would fall on the scale as follows, if found on such a person as just discussed PC being investigated surely?
Level 4 Posing
Deliberately posed pictures of children fully clothed, partially clothed or naked (where the amount, context and organization suggests sexual
Or even Level 5?
Deliberately posed pictures of fully, partially clothed or naked children in sexualised or provocative poses.
So as far as I am concerned blatantly on TV not only images but movies of level 4 or Level 5 on the Copine Scale, it is encouraged, rewarded,
celebrated and even sewn into media and culture.
So if its on TV the same rules don't apply?
Surely to there has to be questions about parental responsibility and even ability, is this mother fit to bring up her daughter?
This whole thing has disturbed and also angered me, I feel the child should be put in safety, but unfortunately as we all know the places where such
safety is meant to be provided by the state often does the exact opposite.
There seems to be very double standards in society as far as media and TV goes, how do they get away with it?
