Nothing Cute About Little Girl Lingerie

Are you kidding me? I guess if you call it Lougerie, it makes it ok right?  I say NO!  Creating a line of sexy wear for girls as young as 4 years old is not cute or fine, it is disgusting and exploitation for little girls.  Now you have given child molesters some photographs to beat off on.  I am not trying to be gross, but that is the disgust I feel.  I don't want to see a little girl in a lingerie outfit that I might wear during a romantic rendezvous with my husband.  My daughter is 1 1/2 and I would be pissed if someone bought her a red teddy, and I'm not talking about the stuffed animal.  I would tell that person that they should check themselves into a mental institution.  What is next, padded bras and pasties and underwear with peekaboo cutouts?  Oh wait, they already have padded bras for 8 year olds. Come on USA you need to beat France and make some pasties for little girls to go along with the stripper pole classes that are now available for kids.  What is wrong with people?  The sexualzationof women is getting younger and younger.  What is sad is that there are parents allowing their children to be photographed in these sickening poses and "loungerie."  Their girls should be photographed doing what little girls should be doing, playing house, cleaning up their play kitchen, oh and taking care of their breastfeeding doll.  (being stereotypical) No really, what is wrong with showing girls  having fun in the dirt, doing a puzzle, and playing doctor?  I don't see any of those images making it in Vogue magazine.  What they are doing is creating a generation of girls that will grow up placing value on how sexy and cute they should be instead of placing value on how intelligent they can be.  Instead of asking what college they will go to one day, they will be more worried about what outfit to wear or their dress size.  As a mother, I will teach my girl that being sexy means being smart and knowing how to think for herself.  There is nothing wrong with dressing cute, but age appropriate.  I will teach my son that girls should be valued for their biggest asset, their brain, and not their boobs, to be loved for who they are as a person not as object to be had, and to be interested in their position on world views, and not their favorite sex position.  I think it all starts at home.  What do you think?  Is this a "soft" version of child porn?  Or do you think it is ok as long as it doesn't go any further?


  1. This is horrible. I say it all the time and I'll say it again: i am so glad i have boys. also, I am keeping under lock and key for the rest of their lives! What is wrong with this world?

  2. AMEN! Thank you for this post. I've read other content online that addresses this same issue, but rarely from the perspective of a (justifiably) indignant mom. We're dealing with a culture that teaches girls to place emphasis on their looks and sexuality (sexuality = whatever it is believed straight men find attractive in women) instead of on what they can bring to the table, whether it's their intelligence, sense of humor, athleticism, and other attributes that make them unique. This indoctrination begins at such a young age that it's difficult to counteract with parenting methods. I'd love to see you write a post on that topic, as I'm a young woman sans children.
