Where Do Little Girls Learn To Dress?
Has anyone noticed that the clothing being strutted about recently is totally scandalous? The skirts are getting shorter while the pants are becoming lower. Necklines are lowering and materials are getting more sheer. Why the big change?
Everytime I walk past the Shiply School, I can't help but thinking that the little girls outside are soon going to be mooning all of Montgomery Avenue. On a trip back to my high school over break, it seemed as though I had gone to a 21 and over dance club. Even the little girls in elementary school are sporting the short skirts and skimpy tops.
I finally figured out where these girls get their fashion ideas. Has anyone seen the little girls' toy BratZ? This replacement to Barbie wears some of the most scandalous clothes on the planet. These dolls that little girls play with on a regular basis have clevage accentuating tops paired with butt bearing bottoms topped off with hooker boots and drama queen make-up. No wonder little girls wear this clothing. If their dolls wear it, why can't they?
The toy business needs to take a little responsibility when it creates its toys. Even though the ultimate responsibility belongs to the parents, when toymakers create toys for both boys and girls, they should think about the message they want sent to the children of America. These manufacturers should create toys that will give children role models to emulate instead of encouraging them to look like mini hookers and strippers.
