The Sexualization of Childhood

Here's an article I read a while back, but haven't had a chance to post.

It's about how magazines like Seventeen sexualize young girls at ever earlier ages. 

Now, "girls" in their teenage years are really young women. Their bodies are developed, they are more mature than the boys their age-for sure. It seems to me though that the age of sexualization keeps being pushed downward, to younger and younger children.

The horrible child beauty porn-geants are part of it of course, and then there are the pole-dancing for kids lessons, etc...

What really bothers me is the stunning hypocrisy of the left on the issue of the sexual abuse and grooming of children.

When a child is sexually groomed or abused in Hollywood, it's not supposed to be a big deal-just part of the industry. When a child is abused by a clergy member-the left goes into full kilter. Why are people at all surprised that there is sexual interest in children, when sexuality is being introduced to children at younger and younger ages under the guise of "sexual education"?

Am I the only one who sees the frightful correlation?

Normal people are not interested in discussing sexual issues with pre-schoolers, or grade-school children.

This is deviant behaviour.

Don't say you weren't warned.
