As if girls weren’t already growing up too fast, Miley Cyrus’s little sister Noah has just annouced she is assisting in a new line of lingerie.
But, as The Frisky points out, it’s not really lingerie, exactly. “[T]he designs aren’t so much lingerie as they are slutty dress-up clothes,” one writer explains.
There, much better.
The Frisky continues, asking, “Why? Why do little girls have to dress like whores? Enjoy your youth, young grasshoppers! Enjoy your innocence while it lasts!”
It doesn’t last long, that’s for sure. Between child beauty pageants that force the pre-k set to don false eyelashes, spray makeup and padded ballgowns, to inappropriate Halloween costumes geared at the tweens and teens, little girls are constantly being sexualized at a younger and younger age.
And unfortunately, it appears to often be with apathy, if not actual encouragement, of their parents.
It’s no wonder that 12 and 13 year olds are sending each other naked pictures of themselves.
